How to Schedule Telnet Commands
So I was trying to find a way to schedule telnet commands, personally all I could find was commercial programs that you need to pay for and that was something I wasn’t wiling to do. Luckily I stumbled across this little gem called Telnet Scripting Tool v1.0. The program is by Albert Yale. Unfortunately the official site (http://ay.home.ml.org/) for the program doesn’t exist any more so I will provide a link to the program at the end of this article.
This program is pretty simple to use really. All you do is create a script file in notepad that contains the commands you wish to use in telnet.
The following code should be placed in a text file. e.g
(This example should reset any CPE Billion router – e.g 7402VGO)
SEND "system restart\m"
That looks pretty simple doesn’t it. The first line of your script is always the address and port number. If you are using TCP port 23 then you don’t really have to say it, it’s considered default. First thing we do is
"Login:" peace of text. Once it has done this we then respond with
SEND "admin\m", this give the router the login name
admin, and the
\m represents the user pressing enter.
Thats pretty much it
WAIT then respond to the
WAIT by sending a command using
Once you have completed your script of the commands you wish to use you are now ready to issue a command to run your script.
This causes the script file that you created to run, if you follow the example and have a billion router or another router that has the same telnet interface your modem will reset.
It’s now simply a matter of using Windows Scheduled Tasks to execute the command line at the time you wish.

Now thats not very hard to use is it, and is very useful if you need to force a reboot on a device with a telnet interface.

How to Download Windows XP SP3 RC1 from Windows Update
Copy the following code into a bat or cmd file then run it.
reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\XPSP3 /f 2> NUL
reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\XPSP3 /v RCPreview /t REG_SZ /d 1c667073-b87f-4f52-a479-98c85711d869 /f
echo XPSP3 registry key has been set. Please check for updates in Windows Update - Kudos to dailyapps.net
The code above will add a few entries to the Windows Registry that makes Microsoft think that you are a part of the Private beta program. This will mean that when you visit the Windows update site you should see SP3 RC1 as a download.
Note: Microsoft will probably catch onto this.
Spammers Abusing Google's "Im Feeling Lucky" Again
There back again, spammers are now using Google‘s “I’m Feeling Lucky” again. As usual with this spam it’s for drugs. I’m personally surprised that phishers haven’t picked up on this yet as a way to bypass filtering.

Procrastination Flow Chart
Heres a flow chart for those of us that tend to procrastinate. It outlines the process of procrastinating. It’s also in itself a good way to procrastinate.

College Sued Over "Drunken Pirate" Sanctions
Welcome to asshole college, we deny our students their rightful accreditations once they have finished their study, and passed all necessary assessments. Little do we tell them that part of your assessment will be that we look up your MySpace, and or other social networking site, profile and if we find any incriminating photos we will deny you your rightful accreditations based on no evidence other than a photo of you drinking a fluid from a cup. We do not care about the contents of the cup only that it may or may not appear to contain alcohol, we don’t care that we have no evidence in regards to the contents of the cup. We will then accuse (Slander?) you by saying that you are promoting underage drinking.
This is my response to this nasty little university (Millersville University, Pennsylvania), and their misguided actions that have led to student, Stacy Snyder, taking them to court. Over an incident regarding on MySpace.
