Cover Songs from 2012

This was the second year I’d worked on recording cover songs. I was learning a lot of new recording techniques but my playing suffered since my attention was elsewhere. Both songs are Metallica covers and “Orion” is one of my all-time favorite songs by the band.

Cover Songs from 2011

Album cover for "Cover Songs recorded in 2011" by Billy Shuler

2011 was the year that I first started recording cover songs. Other than playing in cover bands since high school, I’d not officially recorded covers all on my own. These are some of my most favorite songs to play and while looking back on it now there’s things I would do a little better, these songs came out very good for the lack of experience I had in recording and mixing at the time.

With Gratitude


“With gratitude, optimism is sustainable. If you can find something to be grateful for, in anything, you say “That’s good, there’s a wall of shit coming down on me but this is good”. If you can do that in life, it’s not a depressing situation, it’ll just always get better.”

How To Log Someone Off Of Their Computer Using CMD

Logging Someone Off Of Computer With Command Prompt

There may be times in which it’s more convenient to log a person off of their computer over your local network via the command line. The command you will need to use is fairly simple.

query session logoff 123 /server:ComputerName

Let’s break down the command and how to use it. First thing is that you’ll need to know the computer name and the computer has to reside on your local network. Once you’ve got the computer name there is a command you need to run in order to get some relavent information.

query session /server:ComputerName

You should replace “ComputerName” with the name of the computer the person is logged into. After running the above command you should have some results that look similar to the following.

SESSIONNAME USERNAME ID STATE TYPE DEVICE
            billy     2  Disc

The only thing in the above output you’ll need to make note of is going to be the ID number. Using the information we’ve gathered, if for example we wanted to log off “billy” from a computer named “dellpc” we would run the following command:

logoff 2 /server:dellpc
