By panic modesimple command line backup utility. monitors one folder and when files of given type are detected, they are copied to another location (or two). original can be deleted or renamed. to avoid typing, all options are stored in an INI file. if missing, this file is created once the program is started... successful actions are highlighted in green, failed ones are red. this should also work on older Windows such as Win2K (tested) and WinXP (not tested).
use at own risk, this was literally something i just winged... if there is a bug or feature required, let me know. i will try to get to it as time allows.

By Steve EtterThis is a batch file I use to automatically reconfigure my Ethernet port when I move from one network to another.
It starts by finding and displaying the current address of the card and then displays a menu of IP addresses from which you can select. Once you have selected the address you want from the menu (1-5 for this file), it changes to that address and then verifies the new address and displaying it. If you enter an invalid selection, it will dump and start over without changing anything.
This utility is based off of Microsoft's NETSH and SET commands.
I keep this file, along with all my other batch files, in the subdirectory C:\Batch Files. I then have a shortcut on my desktop to call it.
To modify, I prefer right-clicking on the batch file and selecting "Edit". For me, this brings up Notepad (my default editor) and make for easy modifications. Obviously you will need to update it to match your IP addresses, but you may need to modify the reference to "Local Area Connection" to the specific adapter name on your laptop.
FYI - I am currently running this on WinXP.
By panic modeif you have tried to make own cd with autoplay you may have noticed that
AUTORUN.INF only works on executables (exe or bat for example) but what if
discs with data you want to share with customers for example only contains documents
like presentations spreadsheets PDFs etc.?
one can easily make BAT file with START "MY_DOCUMENT" but the downside is
that command line box shows up during loading etc.
there are numerous programs on the internet that can take care of that but
all i was able to find was not free (well it could be there i didn't look too hard).
this is why this little program is made. it is based on ShellEx API
it's simple to use simply specify inside INI file what document you want to open when disc is inserted
and edit AUTORUN.INF to be something like this:
note that AutoPlay.exe looks in AutoPlay.ini for line OPEN=
and file name should be enclosed by quotation marks
for example OPEN="My Presentation.ppt" or "New Developments.pdf"
also AUTOPLAY.INI must be in same folder as AUTOPLAY.EXE
to make your disc start properly when inserted you need:
4. end user PC that don't have autoplay feature turned off (sorry can't control everything)
and before i forget:
AutoPlay.exe does not handle your files. it simply tells Windows to open them.
in other words target pc should have installed software to handle specified file type or

By PdL2 useful tools:
A useful tool for converting between 16-bit binary decimal and hex. This tool was designed as a direct result of working with Omron PLCs however it is also useful with other PLCs that use 16-bit or 8-bit data. Can be set to use 0 to 65535 or -32768 to +32767 enter in either binary hex or decimal pressing = fills in the other values.
Input the Raw and Engineering ranges and Scale Tool will scale Raw to Engineering OR Engineering to Raw... plus more.
The tools run as stand alone executables. Both are included in the ZIP.
