  1. Hi Paul, the Windows PowerShell library that I'll demo on Friday is still a work in progress.  I'll be interested in feedback during/following the session, and then might look at releasing it in the near future.  Assuming you'll be at the session on Friday let's talk more then.

    Hi Aaron,

    Just another question. I am well versed in Powershell and MDT. If you need anybody to beta test I would love to take part.

    Thanks
