Ask admin why they are logging on

I went on an interesting question over newsgroups.. Someone posted "how to request why admin are logging on?"
He wanted something like when rebooting a 2003 server. While you can't do this through GPO, i wrote a little vbscript to make this.
It open a messag box, popping the question. Then i add an application event with username and comments or a message indicating he refused to explain.

Here is the script:

option explicit
Dim msg, objshell,UserName
Const EVENT_SUCCESS = 0
Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
UserName = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%username%")

msg = InputBox("Why are you logging?")
if msg = "" then
msg="refused to say why"
end if

objShell.LogEvent EVENT_SUCCESS, UserName & " logged on because:" & msg
Set objShell = Nothing

Freeware: Microsoft Active Directory Topology Diagrammer

The Microsoft Active Directory Topology Diagrammer reads an Active Directory configuration using ActiveX Data Objects (ADO), and then automatically generates a Visio diagram of your Active Directory and /or your Exchange 200x Server topology. The diagramms include domains, sites, servers, administrative groups, routing groups and connectors and can be changed manually in Visio if needed.
