Microsoft's official enterprise support blog for AD DS and more
Two years ago the AskDS blog was created. A few days later we had our first post. A huge thanks to you for all of your questions, comments, and kind words over the years; we really appreciate them.

Billions of milliseconds and millions of satisfied readers. Great work Ned and the entire team there that works on the DS blog.
My only problem is that I can only convert dates when I'm using adfind with all the cool switches that joe has in there; luckily you converted it here...so happy two year anniversary and looking forward to many more years and great articles.
Talk to you later
And give the new AD PowerShell in 2008R2 commands a try - datetime is much simpler now. :)
