Good grief it's a joke

A very poor one indeed.

There are FAR too many things you CANNOT do from the command line.

Name them. I've found that most of the things that I thought I could not do from the CLI, I was able to accomplish with some scripting, the Resource Kits, and some ingenuity.

$ echo '$0 & $0 &' > foo; chmod a+x foo; foo;

    Name them.

    Here's one: set the 'At Service Account' for the Task Scheduler with a script that does not use the SendKeys API to do it through the GUI.

    I've got US$50 for the person who delivers that script.

    I do think that WMI and ADSI are really spiffy and that the Windows command-line support has improved greatly since NT 3.5.

    Well, why don't you use your divine influence and get us out of this?
      Is that new in Windows XP or Windows 2003? I haven't had a chance to explore any of the new features in those versions of Windows yet.
