As promised here is an updated version of my DHCP Checker script, complete with more comments and a tad tidier code!

DHCP Checker v2.3

Not Android related

I was starting to forget that my blog wasn't just about Android development! Anyway after a request out of the blue to help a stranger (hi Matt!) use my DHCP Alert script I've decided to spend a bit of time modifying it. For those who don't know the script checks a Windows DHCP server log and when it finds a new lease has been issued it checks to see if the computer exists in Active Directory... and if it doesn't it sends an email to the specified email account.

I plan on making a few changes that Matt has requested like checking renewals and the option of turning off Active Directory checking. The script also badly needs some comments as I found whilst trying to help Matt with implementing the script. More on that to follow soon...

Sorry to anyone who is awaiting my next blog post. Sorry that this one won't be what you were waiting for! I'll be honest, my PlayStation 3 has taken over my spare time... to be more specific Gran Turismo 5! Also I'm in the process of selling and buying houses, which as anyone who has been through that process will know it is quite a time consumer. I would try to commit more time to the blog, but I'm not making any promises... just keep an eye out... see what happens!
