in reply to Run Perl in Task scheduler to eliminate screensaver

WTF?

Your sysadmin lets you arbitrarily run any program you have written but not disable the screensaver?

And how is a DOS prompt popping up every ten minutes less annoying than the screensaver?

And if you can schedule tasks why not just schedule the prompt to pop-up? Why write a script that implicitly requires a prompt to pop up?

I had a laugh, cheers. MB
