Windows PowerShell Scripting Sweepstakes.

I think its kinda funny, though, that the first prize teaser in the description of the contest is two "all-expenses paid trips to Redmond, WA to meet the Windows PowerShell team". You know I'm sure I would enjoy meeting you all and everything...but I'd rather just have the Xbox. Unless I can get the xbox AND the trip to Redmond. :)

Submit your entry scripts in one (or all) of 12 categories:

  1. Active Directory
  2. SQL Databases
  3. IIS 6.0/7.0
  4. Networking
  5. Partner Category: PowerGadgets and NSoftware Network Management Cmdlets (free downloads)
  6. Hardware Asset/Hardware Configuration
  7. Inventory: Hardware, Operating System Settings, Installed Applications and Updates
  8. Registry/Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
  9. File System (quotas, permissions, etc.) or File Tasks (text files, XML, HTML, etc.)
  10. Exchange Server 2007
  11. System Center Operations Manager 2007
  12. Other Category (any useful script for customizing Windows PowerShell or managing systems via Windows PowerShell; Heck if you want to submit a GUI layered over cmdlets, we will consider that as a valid submission)

You might notice that category #5 mentions PowerGadgets (cmdlets for charting and graphing data) and /n software's NetCmdlets (cmdlets for secure network communication and management). I've been playing with both of these a lot recently, so look for more posts coming from me in the near future about both of these and PowerShell in general.
