Open notepad.

Here's a base code frame that you can use to make a timer.

@echo off
color 0a
timeout 60
goto 1

color changes the color combination in the application file
timeout set the time in seconds
the :1 and the goto 1 loops the timer so that it stops and resets so you can start it again with a press of a button.
the @ehco off keeps the app from putting other stuff on the app screen to keep it clean and simple.

Step 1:

save the file as a text file ".txt" in the desired location.

Step 2:

then save it again, but this time as a batch file ".bat" in the desired location.

Step 3:

run the batch file.

Step 4:

to edit open the text file, make your changes, save it as a text file, then save agian as a batch file.

Step 5:

now you have a timer.

This is my 1st instructable by btw.
I know. That's no excuse not to improve on your work <br>
i am improving on my hacking and my programming, im not going to post unfinished projects. like now im working on a programmable timer, &quot;Lockdown File Locking&quot; software, and network crashing.
Please refrain from using the term &quot;hacking&quot; or any words derived off it. <br> <br>Now, onto my comment. <br> <br>One, haven't you already done a timer (I mean I am posting this on it right now). If you're going to make another one, why not post it on this instructable as an add on? <br> <br>Two, I'm guessing that the &quot;Lockdown File Locking software&quot; is going to allow you to stop access to a directory? (Go on to the next paragraph if it isn't). As far as I'm aware, all attempts at achieving this were ill-thought out and just didn't work (they did work, but you can just open the folder or do something else that renders the script useless). I'd like to know your plan on how you are going to try and do this. <br> <br>Thirdly, I don't condone &quot;network crashing&quot; but whatever suits you and you can do is allowed to be shared (well, everything's allowed to be shared, but should it?). Once again, most attempts at these fail and if you want, I'd like to know how you plan on achieving this. <br> <br>Lastly, if you need help with anything, just PM, comment, ask a question or do something to let me know. <br> <br>I'll be gone almost all tomorrow so the earliest I can get to you after I post this (it's 3:00 AM where I am) as about 10:00 PM tomorrow. <br> <br>Goodluck, you're gonna need it.
The Lockdown File Locking software locks and hide away the locker (the folder that u put in stuff you want locked) and prompts u for the password to unlock and reveal the folder so u can access it. <br> <br>2. I actually slowed down my school network which if i slow it down too much it probably would crash. i heard my teacher say &quot;whats going on with google?&quot; <br>and also it looks like they're having problems with the network this morning. <br> <br>3. How to do u convert batch files to exe files using notepad? <br> <br>
So, I'm guessing you're going to make the directory hidden? If this is the case, I am going to tell you now that it has been done and it is not worth the end product. There are so many ways around it. But, if you aren't using that method, go ahead. <br> <br>Secondly, did you use the ping command to slow it down? I suppose I haven't really seen many of these sorts of files, so I won't try to stop you. <br> <br>Thirdly, you can't. You need batch to executable software. Now, be forewarned, there are rumors being spread that they hide trojans in the file that you convert. I have no evidence that these are true or false. I have one that definitely doesn't do this. Unfortunately, I can't remember which one. <br> <br>Good luck.
Eh? <br>How do I shot web? <br>I would like to learn this stuff but I dont get it. Whats a batch file? <br>Do I make an EXE somehow now? Do I use it in CMD??? <br>Id like to time my ready/available time between phone calls at my call center. <br>
i posted some batch file language in a comment above with descriptions. <br>you save it as a batch file. a batch file is like an application, and when you click it it opens and runs using command prompt. .exe files are applications like for example the Mozzila Firefox internet browser. now do u get it? <br>
u write a batch file through notepad and when u save it and open it the file opens in command prompt and runs the script (a set rules i gave the program which the computer understands). <br>im just learning how to hack and write programs. <br> <br>heres a little bit of the code language <br> <br>An A-Z Index of the Windows CMD command line <br> <br> ADDUSERS Add or list users to/from a CSV file <br> ADmodcmd Active Directory Bulk Modify <br> ARP Address Resolution Protocol <br> ASSOC Change file extension associations&bull;

Ask yourself, How could I make this better?, What might this be used for?, Can I adapt more into it to allow for different situations? <br> <br>I don't think you've asked yourself those questions. <br> <br>Now, I could tell you what you could (and should) do, but I'm going to let you figure that out.
go look at your batch file instructable.
Did you just send me on an endless journey? <br> <br>I got a comment saying to go here form there. What are you trying to say?
soon coming &quot;how to make a locker folder that only u can access&quot;
thank u i feel very powerful now <br>
This is a great idea! I truly cannot wait to see some more of your genius ibles!
I followed the instructions and it worked! <br>Very cool.
