Software developer at MagicMaps GmbH.

Usually I'll answer questions here about Java, C#, PowerShell, batch files, random numbers, regular expressions and Unicode. At work I primarily deal with C++, C#, PHP and a few other things.

My interests are mostly HCI, Interaction Design and UX. Recently I18n joined that list as well. That does not mean I have profound knowledge in either of those fields, just that I am interested in them.

Note: People contacting me outside SO/SE is fine, but for discussing their own questions or answers SO already provides a mechanism, namely edits and comments. So please use those things first.
I do hang around on Freenode as Hypftier, though.

comment Query schtasks using Powershell
You're on the right track but writing to a temporary file is unnecessary here: schtasks /query /fo csv /v|convertfrom-csv works just fine

comment Query schtasks using Powershell
What's with the backslashes in there? I'm fairly sure that's not what schtasks expects there, but rather a forward slash.

comment Windows command line built-in compression/extraction tool?
@jishi: Won't help you much in creating a ZIP file, though. That's just for compressing a stream; you would still have to fit some metadata in there somewhere.

comment PowerShell: How to customize prompt?
A note to add: You can do pretty much anything in your prompt function, including colorized output (with Write-Host), &c. However, keep in mind that it must return something. If you only do Write-Host -Fore Green -no "PS $pwd> " in there you'll get a prompt like PS Home:\> PS> since PowerShell assumes that an empty prompt wasn't what you meant. In those cases you can output a character more than needed and return "b"` (the backspace character).

comment Launch different Powershell console from a console?
The console background color is tied to the shortut that started the process. Since you're using Start-Process you launch the actual executable instead of the shortcut you don't get the background color or the other settings that are set via the shortcut. No good idea how to circumvent that.

comment Powershell Foreach-Object with if statement not working - help!
That's not the same as in the question since you're now doing a regular expression match and need to escape the .-like might be an appropriate alternative.

comment Batch scripting: iterate over drive letters?
This also yields other drives that don't have anything to do with non-PowerShell things. On my system, Home: is a PSDrive to my home directory, for example. You're getting more back than needed here.
