Sometimes (Ps)Objects got to many properties for the human eye that it is hard to filter what information is useful for the situation and what not.
For example take the Get-Mailbox Cmdlet from the exchange management tools
It returns 214 properties for each mailbox!
So you have to manually make a selection of what properties you would like to see or work with.
Normally i would use Get-Member and pipe it to Out-Gridview -PassThru
after doing that to many times i created this little snippet you could use in your profile of a custom module
i created this little function to help with selecting the right ones.
the function is a quick and dirty one but it works for me.
When I started to learn PowerShell I needed a Scripting environment.
At the time (Ps Version 2.0) the ISE was not what I expected.
then i found the Quest PowerGui Software and that seemed to fit my expectations,
Since dell has taken over the software from Quest all support has been dropped and the latest version is from 2013.
And since Dell does not release the source I consider that the software will die slowly an painful.
Once I moved back to the PowerShell ISE I missed one function Run in Shell specifically.
Sometimes you want to run a script in a fresh PowerShell Console instead of a dirty polluted ISE
I know you can create a new PowerShell Tab which is fresh but to me that’s is a bit of a messy solution.
So I figured I could create a function and PowerShell ISE Add-on Menu and I like to share this with you all.
if someone could tell me how i can add a button to ISE please let me know!
Back in the day, when connecting to Unix/Linux terminal or connecting to IRC.
there was I almost always a MOTD Message.
originally the message was used to send a common message to all users, in a more efficient manner than sending them all an e-mail message.
but the most messages that I noticed where quotes from VIP’s, Movies, etc.
that gave me an idea..
why not have a Norris quote when opening PowerShell?
