Whazzup everyone, welcome back to my electronics blog. So, my microsoft Word has stopped working for some reason and I have had to start using notepad to write all of my research down which is seriously annoying. I have gotten to learn some pretty cool tricks that can be done on Microsoft Notepad. Here are some of my favourite.

Create your own Diary

This is really cool for anyone wanting to keep daily notes, or even if you want to have a diary on your desktop without a key lock. All you have to do is type .LOG into your notepad, save it as a text document and then open it up again. There will now be a date and time stamp on the top of your document. This is really useful if you need to log daily changes in something, like for a school experiment.

Matrix Effect

Remember the Matrix? Of course you do, unless you were born after 2005. If you want to recreate some nostalgic Matrix fun, simply copy this code into your new notepad file:

@echo off

color 02

:tricks

echo %random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%

goto tricks

Name the file something you will remember (like Matrix) and save it as a .BAT file. It will then save as a separate file that if double clicked, will show you the matrix in all its glory.

Creepy Computer Voice

You too can make your computer sound like the villain in a bad sci fi movie. If you want to make you computer talk, albeit with a creepy human-ish voice then simply paste

Dim Message, Speak

Message=InputBox("Enter text","Speak")

Set Speak=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")

Speak.Speak Message

Choose a good name you will recognize, and make sure you save it as a .VBS file. Then simply close the program and open it up again to prompt a pop up box. Type something in there and prepare your ear holes.
