• "Big Alain" notified me that my code using CHOICE to generate a delay in batch files was outdated.
It was based on the syntax of MS-DOS's CHOICE command, in Windows 10 its syntax has altered slightly, enough to break the original code.
Separate Windows 10 code has been added to the batch delays page.

Thanks Alain

• Inspired by yesterday's base64 addition, I investigated CERTUTIL's features and "discovered" its -hashfile switch.
So I added a new page on generating file hashes in batch files.
• Likewise I also added a page on hexadecimal file encoding and decoding.
