I like the quote "Linux is only free if your time is worthless."

I never met an open source project that compiled on the first try.

comment Running a bat file in XP as a windows service
A batch file won't make a very good service. For one thing it won't respond to any of the service commands like restart or stop. Batch files are also not designed to run continuously (like a service should).

comment How can I detach a database that is in use?
It is some combination of Visual Studio and Server Management Studio Express, because I have seen the behavior on 3 different workstations. It might be from running multiple versions of Visual Studio at once, I know this causes bizarre behavior in IE7 when using tabs.

comment How can I detach a database that is in use?
I was hoping more for a query related solution. Server Management Studio Express very often causes my machine to blue screen. So I'm using a tool that just sends queries to the server.

comment Trouble adding computers to domain
This question isn't clear enough. Please clarify, are you trying to join workstations to a new domain? Are you simply trying to remote into a different domain? Did you change the domain of the terminal servers and now the workstations can't access it?

Yes, but at least you know it is possible with the right tool. Now you just have to convince them to install it for you.
