I already did all that while I executed the delete file command and Window's Server OS asked me if I was sure I wanted to delete 200GB of files on my five SCSI hard drives that run all of my web sites. I clicked yes. Now what do I do now?

:lol2: :lol2: :lol2: I think I busted a gut here tonight.

This reminds me of a prank I pulled. Years ago when color monitors first came out I worked for the gov't and we had just got this new computer. A certain person claimed it for her own. Anyhow, I snuck in and altered the batch file so when it booted up it would go to a screen with a computer on it and a circle with the hash mark on it like a no smoking emblem. Underneath this picture, I had typed, "WARNING! WATER IN HARD DRIVE. PLEASE PRESS P TO PUMP WATER OUT BEFORE PROCEEDING! After the P was pressed 3 times the computer would boot up to the normal Windows screen. I didn't tell but a few people about it and we had weeks of fun with this until ..... well .. secrets like this just can't be kept. My only regret, besides missing a pay raise, was I didn't know how to install a WMV file to make a pumping noise when the P was pressed. Now that would have been icing on the cake. :lol2: :lol2:
