    Thumbs up PC-Timer - Shut Down Program?

    First - this isn't a technical question, kinda just cruising for some information really.

    I like to listen to foreign radio streams (maybe even youse guys Radio NZ station) once in a while.

    I'm trying to learn a foreign language, and Kiwi qualifies for extra credit at the college level here in the US.

    Actually ANY English qualifies in Californicate.

    Is there any place to find a small stand-alone program that lets me play such a stream and it will shut down the whole PC after a preset time?

    Kinda like a reverse alarm clock. Subliminal education, here I come!

    You can do it with windows out of the box, just use the shutdown command with a -t switch and put what ever time (mind you it's in seconds)

    If you go start/run and type in shutdown /? it will show you how to use it. you would do something like a shutdown -f -s -t 10000

    Switch Off was one I used. But don't know what could be used to start up a internet service/stream which I think you also want. Probably need a script, custom player, or signing up to a service or something. SHOUTcast might have addons in their developer section if it suits.

    I sometimes use the create shortcut option: shudown -s -t 50 -c. 50 is how many seconds. I think it goes like that, kind of like what Alex said.

    Just use Win ME or Vista.
    They are especially adept at shutting down.

    Nope - I hop on the roof and waggle flags. A Spam-free service.

    Birds?

    Snipers?

    Looney wagon?

    A lot of things can spam semaphore flags.

    The shutdown program of mine still works. I've dumbed it down as far as I can.
