you do learn something new every day

The other day I learned that if you create a shortcut in Windows 2000 and specify the arguments to the shortcut as “%1 %2 %3” as you would in a DOS batch file, then drop a file or files onto that shortcut, it will pass the filenames as arguments to the program. So now I have a drag-and-drop package installer (courtesy of UnixNPI) on my desktop. Neat-o.

Hey, someone has to provide some geek now that Grant is on hiatus!
