Want a treat? Get others to send you an invite :P

Here’s an example of my “idle mind at work”… writing code just for the heck of it… SendKeys.SendWait(“^({ESC})”); Thread.Sleep(500); SendKeys.SendWait(“run”); Thread.Sleep(1000); SendKeys.SendWait(“{ENTER}”); Thread.Sleep(500);   String currentRecepients = “<your To List>”;//Enter all emails separated by semi colons   SendKeys.SendWait(“mailto:” + currentRecepients + “;”;//+ WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.Split(‘\\’)[1]); Thread.Sleep(500); SendKeys.SendWait(“{ENTER}”); Thread.Sleep(500); SendKeys.SendWait(“treat from me at barista… today 4:30pm”); SendKeys.SendWait(“{TAB}”); SendKeys.SendWait(“no…
