Windows PowerShell…


Followers of the blog know I’m a Linux fan, but over the weekend I needed to fix some stuff on a Windows server at work and I took my first tentative steps into the world of Windows PowerShell. It was very much a case of “scripting by Google”, but I managed to get the job done pretty quickly. That episode prompted this tweet.


That resulted in two little exchanges. The first from Niall Litchfield, who must have been a little under the weather. 🙂



The second from @WindowsServer.




I think that’s my first interaction with Microsoft on any social network. I sense a new website called “” coming on. 🙂

  1. Windows Scripting Host was the previous name for it. It was fun to create SQLDesigner reports directly from the Oracle tool into Microsoft Word with it. Everyone thought I was doing “internal things” with Oracle. It was just a wsh script! There is a new version of basic that goes with Powershell as well and works well with it making it childplay to get things going.
    Beats Korn shell anyday!
    (although I still prefer my Ksh scripts!…)
