    Tim,

    I have a NIGHT.BAT file that runs all the maintenance files for the door games. I have noticed it is not running under the timed events.
    If I execute it manually but double clicking on it, it runs just fine. If I tell it to run under a Forced Time Event, it does not run. It returns with a 255 code. Any ideas?

    I had a similar issue. If you run it as an exclusive event to force
    users offline, for the nodes, instead of ANY, set it to 1. It will
    take node 1 down, and "busy out" the other nodes" for the nightly maintenance to run.

    Daryl

    why would you ever want to take a user offline to run stupid maint?

    I think the Node1 was the key. Thanks for the help.

    I think "Native" was the key. A "Node" value of "Any" works fine.

    I realise my post is not contributing to the knowledge either, but it's important for you to hear from a third party how you are coming across to others here.

    I don't really know MRO, but when people (to some extent including myself) talk about him when he's not present, the general consensus is that:

    - he's a dick
    - he's knows he's a dick
    - there's no point engaging with him because you'll never change him

    Allthough MRO may have his faults, he has been a tremdious help to me over the years with synchronet. I haven't used his help in the last few years,

    There's a reason a lot of companies and leaders have a "no assholes" rule for hiring. All the help in the world isn't very useful if they run everyone off and make people avoid the message boards, or in the worst case, not want to contribute to BBSing in general.

    to others here.

    MRO tends to be toxic sometimes. :/


    i wasnt even that bad.

    I think I now have PTSD, I'll never run another batch file again...

    the ironic thing is you got the problem wrong again.

    I interview a lot of people at work - you'd be surprised what you

    can
    glean from interviews where yes, you'd expect a person
    would be on their *best* behavior.

    100% agree with this. I also heavily interview.

    It's surprising, but it happens, but people really do 'throw themselves under the bus' sometimes when giving answers which reveal their true character traits...

    i've found that at interviews what they don't say can say much more.
    and interviews are a two way street. some people don't realize this.


    I interviewed at a place where nobody was a fit in their current job and they couldn't keep people. They acted like everything was perfectly normal. if i were to ask them why people don't stay they'd say they don't know. the answer is the place was falling apart. They mentioned how there was a lot of opportunity. yeah i bet! so many people leave you can fill in for them along with your current job.

    I couldn't wait to get out of there. It was a huge waste of my time and i sacrificed my sleep and time to go to that sham of an interview.
