    Windows PowerShell Community Extension project

    • 0 Comments
    I ran across the PowerShell Community Extension (PSCX) project several years ago when working with Windows PowerShell 1.0. It is a collection of cmdlets that are written for WIndows PowerShell by people in the community. Some of the people who work on the project are professional developers, others are not – they are people who like to write code for fun, and who enjoy contributing to the community. That is the beauty of the PSCX project it is community driven. The first set of cmdlets were great additions to Windows PowerShell and provide needed functionality, as well as some things that were just fun to use. The newest release works with Windows PowerShell 2.0. For today’s Hey Scripting Guy! article , I asked Keith Hill to write an article describing the newest version of PSCX. Check it out...

    Changing Display Resolution on the fly …

    • 0 Comments
    Back when I was traveling all around the world and teaching scripting workshops to customers, I was constantly changing the display resolution on my laptop. Generally, when connecting to the overhead projector (or beamer as it was called in Germany) you need to select a lower resolution than the laptop is designed to run at. This ensures the fonts will be viewable from the back of the room. While a low resolution (such as 800x600) looks good from the back of the room, it does not look good up close on the laptop. In fact, many Windows applications are unusable at such a low resolution due to the size of the dialog boxes and problems with navigating around the screen. I always wanted a script I could run when I started the day, and a script to run at the end of the day … or during lunch if I...

    Dino Esposito: “ASP.NET MVC: Your Option and Your Peril”

    • 6 Comments
    Dino here. Imagine you spent the last three years in a dark cave hidden in the intricate labyrinth of some rainforest. And imagine you had no connectivity for all that time. Now you’re back and you can’t wait to put your hands on the freshly released version of Visual Studio. You used to be a Web developer and you knew quite a bit of Web Forms programming—let’s say you were a loyal reader of my past books. (Thank you!) You open up Visual Studio 2010 and choose to create your first new Web project after three years—big surprise! You have now two options: ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC. It’s like getting a double (and largely unexpected) visit from the stork. You were waiting for one, and you get two. And, worse yet, you don’t know why two. Nor...
