Everything in Project Server and SharePoint have Guids associated with them.  A friend asked about generating new unique Guids for repeatable deployments.  So of course I started writing a little console application to use System.Guid to generate the new Guid (I’m a developer, I always think in code).  But as I started thinking about emailing an exe, an idea struck me... PowerShell.  I had installed PowerShell months ago because I was told about using it to maintain my 20,000+ (and always growing) photo collection.  But have never got around to using it.  I fired up the console and the User Guide.  I looked through the TOC and found "Working with Objects."  Within 10 minutes I had figured out the syntax.  So, cut to the chase... 

[System.Guid]::NewGuid().ToString()

 

I have one word for this... SWEET!  I look forward to playing with PowerShell more in the future.
