Things seemed a bit r-r-rapido this morning, so a quick look around settings / speedtest.net:
I've seen the BT Openreach vans buzzing around recently. No idea what they have been up to, but they can keep it up!
From my original blurb at the time of release:
ChrisControl works by scanning the remote system to see if either RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol aka Terminal Services) or VNC (Virtual Network Computing) servers are installed and running.
ChrisControl will then install VNC server, start and connect to the remote system via VNC. ChrisControl has two further tickbox options:
Whats more is that ChrisControl ships as one convenient file - no other files are required!
As with most of my batch files / visual basic scripts / autoit programs (such as ChrisControl), I write them to help me out. I'm writing something to make my life simpler (coz I'm lazy? Yep almost certainly). If they help others out then, sure, I'm over the moon that I can help someone else out.
Boy did I under-estimate this little bit of CH time saving software.. It's popularity has just grown and grown and grown.. It's all over the place!!!
I had occasion to look on pendrive apps the other day - it's there! It's included on a rescue CD here been blogged about here and here it's even made it onto digg with it's own posting here ... It's used all over the world, for example here in Spain, I've had countless emails from various users all over the world. It's been offered as a solution to a problem on experts-exchange (search for reply by JoeZ430)...
OK I think we get the picture.
So, ChrisControl is not dead... yet... It's just been resting. New versions coming soon
The only slight problem is that I'm already older than the Chief Scout... Ho Hum
