A while back – January, if I am not mistaken – a colleague of mine saw some of my AHK scripts. Upon seeing this, he showed me a little portable app he uses to get the same results.
That’s how I learned about ac’tivAid. It is a framework for AHK scripts created by Wolfgang Reszel
for the german PC magazine c’t. The official article is on their website; where you can download the app (here is the direct link for non german speaks: link).
This framework comes by default with quite a lot of extensions (scripts). And some pretty neat ones for that matter. I have running right now: Read more
Quite some time ago (2008, if I am not mistaken) derRaphael, a well-known scripter on the german AHK forum, wrote a script inspired by the Firefox addon Ubiquity. He named it dR’s OCM (OmniContextMenu).
Unfortuantly his original code is no longer available on the internet.
But in October I remembered this code of his and found a backup somewhere in my storage.
I took a look at it and decided to use it again. Since this meant some updates in the APIs and his code, I made a version 2.0.
Recently I had an idea:
I was using Ed Wilson’s Code Snippets (which he introduced in his article Add Code Snippets to Your Script by Using the PowerShell ISE) a lot for powershell when writing scripts in PowerShell ISE. However I missed this when writing other things (i.e.: AHK scripts, ABAP reports, e-mails, a.s.o.).
I remembered Lexikos’ AHKControl back from 2008 and thought I could combine both ideas.
Wow. It’s been a year????
I can’t believe it took me this long to post something again.
I didn’t really have anything to share lately; I’ve been busy with work and did little scripting in the last year.
But I am aiming for a change.
The Scripting Games will start this month. You can get more infos about theme at powershell.org.
I will be posting more on the games shortly.
The 2012 Windows PowerShell Scripting Games are just around the corner. I have participated in the last 2 Scripting Games and had a lot of fun.
I have been invited to be a judge for the second time, along with a lot of MVPs and PowerShell veterans. It will be a lot of work (a lot of scripts to grade) but I am sure it will be worth it. Read more
Here is a little function i wrote a while back.
I have been using it a lot lately to send myself (and coworkers) status updates and logs. I also use it to let me know when a job (that kind of job that takes forever to complete) is finished.
Today Ed Wilson (The Scripting Guy) published my secound guest entry on the Hey Scripting Guy blog.
Hope you enjoy
It has been a while since I last posted here.
I wanted to finish my module project for my next post, but I didn’t have that much time to work on it. This module allows you to manage Active Directories and Domain Controllers.
Microsoft introduced a built-in PowerShell module for managing Active Directory in Windows 2008R2. However, I have two problems with this module:
So I decided to write my own set of functions, which soon turned into a complete module. Since it is supposed to be a tool to work mainly with older servers, it’s time to finally publish it (Although it is not 100% yet). Read more
