In the future, try to read the error messages. That's what they're there for.

To quote Mr.K himself

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

I think that means, "I'm very interested in this, go into greater detail" or something along those lines.

Anywho, I'm able to control my comp via text messages because of email. On Mozilla Thunderbird it has an option to sort your emails, i.e. if its from johniscool@epicprovider.com it will put it in the "john is cool" folder. Now there is an addon called, Mailbox Alert that whenever you get mail, it will do a specific action like play a sound or even start a program (get where I'm going ;) ). So basically I made a crap load (near 300) folders for all the different possible text messages, or commands I would want to do. And set the Mailbox Alert to a different batch program (I know, highly ineffective) that would write a text file, and start my mother program. This program would read the file, and depending on what it said, correspond properly. This could be anywhere to sending a text back to, starting a process, to taking a screenshot and sending it to me (if my friends didn't believe me :D ). And all I had to do , was send a text to my email. :)

Hope thats what you meant xD

That's pretty cool. I think I'll have to play with that.

Well done, and thanks very much for sharing!

I can remote control servers i have at work from my cell phone, but my solution is far more boring because i just use an SSH client on my phone and peck away shell commands on the touch screen :(
