Learn about Windows PowerShell
I am happy to get caught up with these events. Last weeks’ power outage at our house put us both behind schedule. I like this event. Okay, I will admit that I spent too much time whining yesterday about the event. But in reality, I am not a whiner. I am not. Honestly! Well, at least this event was short and sweet. I was able to write one line of code to search the Windows Update log file for the word fatal. Yep. That is right, I did it in a single line of code. I will admit that I did not use any aliases, but I guess I probably could have used the Get-Alias cmdlet to find an appropriate alias. But, you know what? The scenario said keep it simple, and if I spend 15 minutes searching around for an alias for a cmdlet that I already know the name of, that is not simple. Know what I mean?
Anyway, the Scripting Guy and I are heading out on Friday morning for the PowerShell Deep Dive in Vegas, and I simply cannot go out there without getting my hair done and getting my nails done. I mean really – that is half of the fun of going. Especially since I find slot machines boring, but the trip will be fun. We have tickets to see The Phantom of the Opera on Friday night. Saturday I get to help out with some of the background preparations for the Deep Dive and will also have time to visit and network with the other Windows PowerShell people in attendance. Well, I am out of here. Remember, you have until April 18, 2011, at 12:01 A.M. (-7 UTC) to turn this event in, so this is a good time to catch up. Event 4 is basically due at midnight tonight (April 14, 2011, 12:01 A.M. [-7 UTC]).
See you later, and good luck with the Games.
