Returning visitors to the site probably noticed that recently I changed the images for the software I offer to purchase on this site.
Few posts back I posted a method to convert a flat file into a tab-delimited file with notepad++. This post got a lot of good feedback and people were asking how to do the reverse conversion, from a CSV file (comma delimited) to a flat, fixed-width file.
This post is about an app I developed for this purpose. In this post, I’ll demonstrate how to create POST request on the Windows command line, or incorporate with a Batch file.
Have you ever left your computer on for doing some tasks like downloading, calculating, video processing or any other continuous task only to find out that windows decided to run an update and disrupted anything you were doing?
Well? that happened to me more than I wanted, so I looked for a creative solution for this problem.
If you are working with automatic process, interfaces or anything that works in the background (with a new process every time) you probably familiar with situations when something goes wrong (network failure, memory shortage etc) and our automatic process gets stuck.
Motivation for this project
Every time I add a new device (IOT, server or other) to my home network, I want to make sure that I can rely on it to do its job and keep being connected.
When a device has a critical part to play in my home or office, I want to be alerted when it fails or if it disconnects from the network/internet.
