Funny Commercial [Arabic] – Siblou – Frozen / easy to prepare food

I usually don’t blog about advertisement but I do blog about videos and things that I find funny.

The following commercial is really funny. If you don’t understand Arabic Lebanese, then let me summarize the gist of the commercial.

The lady receives guests and she prepares Siblou in the kitchen so fast. Because Siblou has a variety of frozen food choices, the lady emerges as a different personality based on the food she’s offering. She speaks Chinese for instance when serving the Chinese food. The premise is that the Siblou brand would really taste as if a Chinese cook prepared it! Similarly, she speaks speaks British, French and Japanese accordingly. At the end, she morphs back to the original lady and joins the guests!

Batchography: How to check if your Batch file script is running as an Administrator

In chapter 4 of the Batchography book, I illustrate 3 methods that you can use to check if your Batch file script is running as an Administrator.

In this blog post, I will share with you the method entitled “Using known commands that fail to run without elevated privileges” from the book.

The idea behind this method is to run commands that are known to fail and return a non-zero error code if they are not executed with administrative privilege.

The Batch script would then check the return code and act accordingly:

@echo off

net session >nul 2>&1

if %errorlevel% neq 0 (
  echo Requires administrative privilege.
  goto :eof
)

echo Script starts here...
