I seek work in any organisation doing almost anything you can do on a computer. I work really fast and you wouldn’t even know I was there. I can do anything a human can do and you don’t even need to pay me (apart from the small, initial license fee). I’ll even work 24 hours a day. My ambition is to make everyone’s lives easier by carrying out your mundane computer tasks and performing jobs at night when everyone else would rather be in bed. I can save your company a huge amount of money and free up your valuable time. My goal is to streamline your computing and improve your productivity.

Skill Sets:

Task automation, job scheduling, macro recording, automated software testing, web application automation, automated data entry, software installation streamlining, data retrieval and data consolidation, application integration, file transfers, simplification of complicated tasks, automation of data extraction and report generation, batch processing.

Education and Qualifications:

I learnt everything I know from my makers at MJT Net Ltd who are experts in software automation. They programmed me and gave me my powerful, easy to understand, scripting language and built the functionality that makes it easy to employ me for task automation. I am an expert in user interface scripting, Microsoft VBScript, OLE/ActiveX automation, GUI building, user simulation and computer control.

Summary of Work Experience:

I’ve worked in thousands of different companies world-wide. I can be cloned easily so I have actually worked at lots of different places at the same time. I’ve done Load Testing for JD Edwards and Motorola, Order Processing at Eastman Kodak, Software Installation for the US Environment Protection Agency, performance benchmarking for Pacejet and all sorts of amazing things for hundreds of other people. I’ve been employed by NASA, but I’m not allowed to tell you what I did there. I’ve been utilised by most of the Fortune 500, simplified front desk procedures in high street banks, automated sound file uploads for the BBC, automated play lists for Sirius Satellite Radio, helped with research projects in universities, and generally improved productivity for companies large and small around the world.

Script of the Month Winner – May 2013

Monday, June 10th, 2013 by Marcus Tettmar

Congratulations to CyberCitizen for winning Script of the Month for May 2013. The winning script was his rather ingenious case changer.

It was a tough choice, as we had to choose from some quite innovative scripts. But the deciding factor for us this month was how accessible this script is for all – beginners and experts alike!

We’ve been getting lots of interesting scripts posted to the forums.  Really fascinating to see all the great contributions. Please keep them coming and who knows, next month, it could be your name on a mug! Contest details here.

Now Offering Subscription Plans

Announcing Script of The Month Contest

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 by Marcus Tettmar

Each month we will choose our favourite script or video posted to the forums and send the developer an MJT Net Gearhead mug. *

Your entry may be something submitted in the usual course of events – i.e. as an example or in response to a user’s question, or just because you want to win a nice mug! :-)

We’ll accept either some script code or a video demonstrating an automation routine running on your systems.

Any script code you submit needs to be something that will run anywhere and not dependent on applications that only you have access to!  If that isn’t possible, post a video instead.

Your script could be an example of some neat bit of code, something useful for others or just a bit of fun.  Ideally it will demonstrate something that others can learn from.

As mentioned, we’ll also accept a video or screencast if you have a cool script you want to share which only runs on your systems.  So, for example, if you have a routine running at work which automates a desktop or web app that can’t be shared, then take a screencast of the macro in action, submit it to youtube or vimeo or similar and post a link on the forum.

So, get your thinking caps on, and send in some cool code or a macro movie.

* Ideally, each month, we will choose a script/video posted the previous month, but we reserve the right to pick a post submitted at any other time (especially if there have been no recent entries).  We get to pick our favourite – whatever that may be :-)
