"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In your other question, I mentioned a book called Pc Magazine DOS Power Tools Techniques, Tricks and Utilities, by Paul Somerson, which contained a utility called LOOP.COM which is useful for programming loops in a batch file.  This book also has a useful batch file utility for pausing for x seconds (or until a key is pressed) called WAIT.COM.  The utility can only wait up to 59 seconds, but if you need longer than that, use multiple instances or even a loop to extend it.  Here is where you can get the book:
