To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?

Never thought of myself as an Ent. I was thinking more of Gandalf, although that's a characted, not a race. Hmm...

Well, I made some progress with the list I posted. Found a new API call in the MSDN library (InitiateSystemShutdown) for the booking program and wrote a test C++ program. Sucessfully shutdown my other PC with it. Now all I need to do is to transfer it to VB, unless I change my mind and develop everything in C++. I might do that actually, as everything is going to be NT4/2k/XP, and that will let me use a Unicode-based system with Unicode API calls. Plus, there's less overhead. Maybe if I use named pipes or something for inter-PC communication. It'll make coding it easier, and I could do with the experience with C++. I'll probably not use MFC for this - I think I'll find it easier that way, and it reduces the overhead.
