101 Uses for PowerShell

This is just a bookmark for myself, or, for anyone else that may need it. My friend Erik Kraus, whom I have had the pleasure to speak with before at the last SharePoint Saturday Boston, pointed me to a blog posting he had done early last year, which listed 101 Uses For PowerShell. This was a great article he had written, which gave some great examples of ways to make use of PowerShell. Specifically, he had one section on SharePoint, in which he automated the creation of <File> elements and their attributes within your Element Manifests, so you didn’t have to type out hundreds, or possibly thousands of File, or other references, within your features.

That great link can be found here: http://blogs.msdn.com/ekraus/archive/2009/01/30/101-uses-for-powershell.aspx

I had unfortunately lost the link some time back, and needed it again today. So, after digging for it, I thought I would post it here, so I should never forget it again!
