It looks like we need to take November off. There are still no L trains running so Tome cannot get to the Microsoft office to give the requested talk about regular expressions. Also, with no one working downtown it hardly seems like we'll get much of a turnout. Our next meeting will be December 10th. We'll have RSVP information up in the next week or so.
Now that we've talked (last month) about why we would write PowerShell Modules, we're ready to talk more about what goes into them. On November 8th, Joel Bennett (Microsoft PowerShell MVP) will be presenting again, so please join us as we discuss what goes into a module, how to get started on your own, and what the important parts of a Module Manifest are (and how to write one that works in both PowerShell 2 and 3).
Yep, time for another scripting game! This one will focus on the Windows Event Log, so you may want to review those *eventlog cmdlets...
Bring your laptops, eat some pizza, script a solution, learn some PowerShell.
Also, I think Brian put forth the idea of Shell & Tell last month - if anyone has some cool code to share, BRING IT!
NOTE: we're meeting in building AP2 this month. That's the one across the parking lot from our usual spot.
This month's presentation topic will cover using Powershell to Configure Windows Server 2012 starting @ 6pm. We also plan to break out into a Script Club following the Server 2012 topic so be sure to bring your scripts and we will work on them together. If you are new to PowerShell and do not have any scripts in progress that is ok come on in and get your feet wet. We have lots of knowledge to share on all levels, beginner to advanced.
Matt Hester, Microsoft's Sr. IT Pro Evangelist for the South Central District will present an overview of PowerShell 3.0 including a look at some of the new built-in enhancements for Windows Server 2012. Come out this Saturday morning from 8-9am to enjoy a freeform hour of PowerShell discussion, comraderie and fun.
Well folks, I've already been in touch with many of you through the mailing list (incidentally, if you're in Rochester but not getting those emails, feel free to join the list or email me), but for those of you who didn't hear about it:

In September, Michael Cruz will present part two of a PowerShell script that will test if Defrag is needed on a server, and in the process demonstrate the techniques of creating Powershell objects from WMI and WMI Methods, using the WMI Win32_Volume class and running scripts in parallel using Powershell jobs. Come out this Saturdsay morning from 8-9am to enjoy a freeform hour of PowerShell discussion, comraderie and fun.
