You can run the Results Screens on a public screen, and have the PC driving the screen boot-up automatically. This is useful because it means that if the mains power glitches, you do not need to manually open a browser and navigate to the site. There are several aspects to this.
How to do this will depend on your computer's operating system.
"C:\Documents and Settings\[yourSettingsFolder]\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --kiosk http://forms.eurospeleo.uk/srt pause
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --kiosk http://forms.eurospeleo.uk/srt
The browser will be operating in full-screen or "kiosk" mode, and you wont be able to break out of it easily. You can press ALT-TAB to bring up a list of your running programs for you select one, or you can press ALT-F4 to close the browser.
That's clearly not at all straightforward, especially as your PC might have a very different file structure. But its very handy once its done.
This is similar to the above, except that the slideshow will be running from a memory stick, and a potential difficulty is that you do not know the name of the drive. Your eurospeleo.bat file should contain the flollowing code...
@echo off SET FILE=slideshow.html echo Photo Salon Slideshow echo --------------------- echo Searching for %FILE% on external memory stick... FOR %%i IN ( D E F G H I ) DO ( IF NOT EXIST "%%i:\%FILE%" ( ECHO File not found on Drive %%i:\ ) ELSE ( ECHO File found on Drive %%i:\. Executing... "C:\Documents and Settings[[yourSettingsFolder]Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --kiosk %%i:\%FILE% ) ) echo ...giving up. pause
That will cause the PC to search drives D to I for the file slideshow.html and to run it if it exists.
