There's so many sweet things you can do with command prompt, and i think that us ugers should share some of our knowledge and great things that we can do using such a simple, yet sweet program...

Here's two pretty cool things i found out:

type 'telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl' (without the quotations) in command prompt to watch a text version of Star Wars.

Also i know how to bypass any school proxy using command prompt, but it takes to long to talk about how to do it.

Someone wrote the command prompt for sending a message to every machine on the Glasgow University network on a bathroom wall.

Me and my friends decided to test it.... it worked. Was totally hilarious. People didn't know wtf was going on, but after a bit everyone on that floor knew it was us cus we couldn't stop laughing.

I just know how to do some basic things like pinging and reading the ipconfig when my internets down.

Otherwise, I just don't use it.
Signature? What's a signature?

telnet://towel.blinkenlights.nl

Hit that up in your browser, and select that you want to launch the application, and you'll see the Star Wars in ASCII.

And for netsend, just google it.

It's simple to sound like them, tune your guitars down a couple of steps but don't worry if it's actually IN tune or not, then just plug in and throw your guitar out the window.

fine filthandfury...

1. open command prompt

2. type in 'ping' and then the domain of the website that you'd want to go to let's instead use ultimate-guitar.com in our case. So once your in command prompt, type in 'ping www.ultimate-guitar.com'

3. Wait a couple seconds and then you will get a series of numbers that looks like and IP address, but it ACTUALLY IS AN IP ADDRESS. for ultimate guitar's case it' will be [85.17.164.150]

4. With that internet protocol address, you type in the website as 'http://85.17.164.150/' and you'll get to ultimate-guitar.com that way as well without ever showing the domain name.

Ah, I knew that already

It doesn't bypass any filter, it depends if the filter works by URL or IP, but yeah this does work for a lot of systems

Ah and if windows doesn't let you delete a file, you may be able to do it through command prompt.

This is so rad. However, the computers at my school are Macs, therefore ****ty and non-Command Prompt. If Macs have it, they've probably deleted. Our school IT guy is a bastard...


EDIT: I found this thing a year or so ago called The Magic of DOS, and it's like a 15 page guide for beginners on Command Prompt, with telnet stuff and a bunch of tihngs like that. I'm going to take a look through it now...

Are you ****ing kidding me? Mac OS X has multiple shells built in - bash, tcsh, zsh, csh, sh…

Windows has a ****ty DOS prompt.

If anything, Apple's Terminal has more functionality.

I wasn't saying anything about the functionality, I was just predicting that the codes for command prompt wouldn't work in terminal. And I've been proven wrong.

Ah,

Some things happen to be created both for bash and DOS. However, many common and useful programs (awk, sed, grep, etc.) are already installed with Terminal, no downloading a badly-made Win32 version necessary.

Well, I think I'll ping the sites that are blocked at my house, write the IPs down, then use them at school.

That is, unless that bastard of an IT guy blocked the IPs themselves...

I get this netsend command, but how can I get it to send the message to every computer on the network at once? Can I do that?

I think it would be great to do that at school, and watch people freak out.
