Windows Toast Notifications With PowerShell

Windows Toast Notifications With PowerShell

Back in the day when I was just a wee little lad and more of a punk, we used to practice our l33t h@ck3rZ in school. One of the cool, rebellious ways we would do this was by sending messages to other computers via the NET SEND command. They would usually say something...

Existing O365 Cloud Accounts – Sync Errors

The word cloud means different things to different folks. To some, it's a term of endearment and something they hold close to their heart. Some only think it's a light fluffy thing in the sky that can sometimes appear to make funny shapes. And still some think of it...

ValueFromPipeline in PowerShell (Advanced Functions)

For all of you who are still out there working because you missed becoming a DOGEionaire and therefore still have your job in IT, this post is for you. And as it's clearly evident by me writing this post…I did not catch that sweet meme train to the moon. Before we all...

Story Generator

So a couple of weekends ago, I did a thing. This thing I did probably destroyed any hope I had of being nominated for the Father of the Year award. What did I do? Well, I made my kids do "school" work not at school. Anddddd on a weekend. They almost lost their minds....

MobileIron – Mandatory Apps

Since you asked, UI design and development is underrated in my opinion. Like IT is to the business (usually support, not impacting the bottom line), the UI can be to the Application. Okay, maybe that's a poor analogy and maybe we're just bitter about working in...

Progress Bar in PowerShell

Progress Bar in PowerShell

One thing I like about scripting/programming in general is that I never seem to have it all together before I learn about some magical piece of code, which I was unaware even existed, and it goes on to change my life forever. Some of these are quite bigly and others...

Mmmm Chocolatey

Mmmm Chocolatey

There's a special place in my heart full of sympathy for those poor souls who are allergic to chocolate. Chocolate is one of those rare delicacies that just about fixes all of life's problems with just one sweet little treat eaten at the right time, which is any time....

Let’s Get Creative

It’s not all spreadsheets and unread EULA’s for me, I also dabble on the creative side and engage the right side of my brain from time to time. Completely amateur graphic artist, photographer, videographer, author, musician, and chef in no particular order. Some have said my work brought them to tears…although, come to think of it, they didn’t elaborate on why they were crying or any preexisting conditions they might have had. Clearly, that’s irrelevant.
