powarrmonkey proudly presents...
Shutdownertron, a group-policy controlled, automated, user-abortable, decentralised shutdown mechanism.
I have been working on this for most of the year and it's finally in a fit state to have some kind of public offering. Documentation is to follow, so if you're feeling brave and want to give it a go, I would value your feedback. It is at http://www.powdarrmonkey.net/shutdownertron/
If you're CC3, use Bizzell's system. If you're anything else, Shutdownertron is for you. (And of course it will still work with CC3, with a little effort.)
- an MSI, for distribution by your preferred method
- two transforms, to control installation of the local override tool (by default, installed on demand)
- a group policy template that you can install in the normal way
I'm writing documentation this weekend hopefully, but in the meantime do please have a go and tell me how you get on.
(mods: can I have a forum for this please? ta)
