And one can assume that if you post to a group you read it (make.money.buy.my.shit spammers excluded). So my question is, are you just stupid or did you not notice the ObHack requirement? And before you answer, its not "We require an ObHack for posts except those with a subject of 'DO NOT READ'". *Sigh* you would think people would get the idea after about 400 test/youre_a_dumb_ass posting pairs. Oh well.. Crap, now to think of an ObHack (looks around room..) ObInstallingOldGamesHack: I recently backed up my old sierra games because i am going to college and there is no way I'm bringing all those damned disks with me. I just zipped up all the disks and dumped 'em in a directory. Anyway, I wanted to install 'em but they of course used some disk_id type system to id which disk it was so you coudn't install it from one big directory. The answer was of course simple, go into windows (barf, vomit.. but dos psuedo-multitasking) and run a shell that unzips the next disk and one that runs the install program. ObAlmostAsPitifulHack: A few years back I was a teaching aid in a really basic programming class (hey, EASY A... and unfortunatly the US school system is obsessed w/ grades). Anyway, we had the PCs boot up and run qbasic (teachers choice..) but we had some problems with these two dorks quiting qbasic and running 'naughty' things. What I ended up doing was editing his batch file (q.bat.. so he could type it fast to get back into qbasic) to pipe doskey /history to a sort of hidden log. To this day the dork couldn't figure out how we knew what he was doing :). This was waaay before I knew my way around dos so at the time it qualified as a hack :). No hack to small right guys? guys? *turns and runs!* AHHHH!
