    Default God damn ye DOS

    So I am working as a Night Auditor for a certain hotel chain that has done very well for it's self. However, since I gotta go over all their numbers, I must dive deep into their very dated computer database. Now here's the thing, despite our millions of dollar budgets, we still run on a DOS program.

    It drives me nuts!

    I have no prior experiences in DOS and sometimes things go critically wrong, such as right now. Every time I hit a key on the DOS server, gibberish pops up and begins running across the screen. I have restarted the computer twice and get the same result (hey, I was hoping for a miracle) so now here I am, telling my problems to our server's tech help computer, and hoping I can finish the rest of my work with the hard copies of our income reports.

    DAMN YOU DOS!

    Oh, and if anyone has any experience with DOS, mind giving me a few pointers? Anything, even problems that I might face sooner or later will be a big help. Thanks in advance!

    You can print stuff to a file

    ping >> mytext.txt or ping > mytext.txt

    Learn batch files which is likely what's going on. Looks a lot like basica programming.

    I finally got a hold of our tech guy, and that's what he told me to do. Ha ha you rock.
