So my free time has been spent lately helping with 2 children with walking pneumonia, 1 infant (perfectly healthy) working a full time job with more than a full time workload; and a lot of the cool, fun stuff I’m doing at work (in my opinion anyway)…. I can’t talk about here
.:: sadface ::.
Trick or treating was fun, both Will and Maggie had a blast at their last Trunk or Treat @ HSBC, and run around their neighborhood. Will was all go, all night; and Maggie was super fired up about her candy! I was exhausted afterwards of course, but I was overjoyed to see their excitement! Glad I got to TC this week.
As far as my gaming; I’ve been able to play a little bit of Borderlands 2 (not even 20 yet), and Torchlight 2 (wiped out my save so had to start over) which I have enjoyed. AC3 was released, and Halo 4 is coming next Tuesday. Alas, my consoles are packed for the move so I won’t be getting/playing them right away which pains me a bit. I’d get AC3 for PC, but I have already played all the others on my PS3, so I wish to maintain that trend.
And for coding; I’ve been doing a fair amount of (windows) scripting lately, but nothing really ground breaking. I did write a SQL to email script in both vbscript then re-wrote in PowerShell (since I was informed CDO will be depreciated in future releases of exchange) which I plan on sharing here in another post once I’ve scrubbed them. They are actually jokingly easy to do, but very useful for anyone that hasn’t got a paid tool for this kind of thing.
In the short term I’m going to share a simple script to quickly gather OS service pack information from AD from a list of machines and dump it to a csv I wrote for a buddy of mine (seriously, in PowerShell this is crazy simple).
Expect to see that post around Monday or Tuesday; until then, have a good one and pray for us (or keep us in your thoughts). There’s a lot going on, and we all feel a bit overwhelmed.
