Time to “Git gut” at something new. So I decided to have a bit of challenge in two weeks and spend the entire weekend (25-26.04.2017) operating my PC using only PowerShell, despite giving myself 2 weeks prep time it will probably the most google intensive weekend of my life.
Rules (which I will most likely change after reading some more)
- If I can do something in PowerShell I do it in PowerShell so for example if I want to open a web page:
$IE=new-object -com internetexplorer.application $IE.navigate2("www.microsoft.com") $IE.visible=$true
- If something does not work with PowerShell it get’s a pass (I’m not going to play games, for example, using a console…)
- We go in hardcore with Admin Privileges, if I break the system… So be it, at least I won’t do it again 😉
- Everything I manage to do I will screenshot and add to a new post in 2 weeks
Here’s to a fun weekend!
