     This code is probably not the best for learning from, however I decided to post it in the hope that maybe it could help someone figure out the extreme basics of using the winsock control. Basicly, I wrote this to play a prank on a friend, you know just scare him a bit, but after using it I decided to go ahead and submit it, hoping maybe it would help someone out with winsock. I will say right now I don't highly expect it to be of to much use, but I hope it is. If you find you can't learn anything from it, or don't understand it, don't critisize automaticly, email me at and I will happily help you in any way possible. I just hope it is of some use to some people, but don't use it for anything bad, just try to learn from it. Thanks.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
