This will be my repository for tried-and-tested useful Windows commands …
1) This is my perpetual alarm-lock whilst working-at-home during the week. Stops me clock-watching, and lets me know when I’m doing overtime. (Don’t forget to check the messenger-service is started).
at 17:00 /every:M,T,W,Th,F net send “richard” Its Five O’Clock lol
2) In the path (EG: C:Windows) I create a file ‘remindme.cmd’ containing the code …
at %1 net send “richard” %*
… then at some time in my busy future I can set a simple, robust, reminder (robust as I don’t need anything running – like an email client). I just open a command prompt and type something like ‘remindme 13:58 call joe for lunch’.
(Oh, and don’t forget to check the messenger-service is working).
