PowerShell Simple Tricks: Number to Hex

When investigating bugs a lot of times you start out with an unfamiliar HRESULT value.  Searching the web will give you a hint of what the problem is and the real search can begin.  If you get this error out of a log file it can come in a base 10 value versus a base 16 (hex).  Searching for your base 10 code is much less efficient that the hex counter part.  No matter.
