Call me...


Hello
T he atheist rejects the claim that there is a
supernatural entity or force that interacts with existence...
Because it is a claim without basis.

Atheism makes no claims whatsoever.
Atheism asserts nothing.
Atheism IS NOT an act or an action
IT IS a position
 It has no objective.
Comparatively / Conversely:
Anti-theism IS an act or an action
 It IS NOT a position
 It has an objective.
Not all ATHEISTS are ANTI-THEIST.
All ANTI-THEISTS are ATHEIST.

Powershell, Gmail, µTorrent (utorrent), PeerBlock

This post is further elaboration on this script:
http://rich-laduca.blogspot.com/2010/03/powershell-sending-ip-address-in-email.html


In addition to emailing me my IP. I wanted to also know if:

1) Is µTorrent running.
2) Is PeerBlock running
 If 1 was true,  and 2 was false... I wanted to know about it. And I also wanted it fixed ASAP!

This script will, if
µTorrent IS running,  start PeerBlock... And email the disposition.

Before this will work, you have to create a scheduled task to start PeerBolck.

Be sure to select “Run with Highest Privileges’ when setting up the task...
This is how the UAC is by-passed. otherwise PeerBlock cant be started from a
command line only. You have to acknowledge the UAC ~OR~ you can start the task:

schtasks /run /tn PeerGaurdian (I named the task ‘PeerGaurdian’ so that is what I am stating )
