PowerShell Scripting Contest – 2 weeks left

You still have an opportunity to step into the winners circle by submitting your PowerShell Scripts to our Scripting contest.  Your entry has to submitted by Dec 15, 2006 to be eligible to win. 

We all techies so let’s do the math –  

  1. We are giving lots of prizes
    1. First prize is a 3 day, 2 night trip to Redmond to meet the Windows PowerShell team
    2. 12 Microsoft XBox 360 Core gaming systems
    3. 36 copies of PowerGadgets (Drool Drool)
    4. 36 copies of the book Windows PowerShell: TFM
    5. 24 copeis of PrimalScript 4.1 for Windows PowerShell
    6. 36 Windows PowerShell T-Shirts
  2. PowerShell just shipped so a ton of people are just starting to learn it
  3. Lots of people don’t enter contests

Conclusion:  If you submit a few scripts, you stand a good chance of winning (no promises but you do the math :-) ).   If you can pipe GET-PROCESS to WHERE {$_.HANDLES -GE 500}, you should be submitting your scripts (ok so you probably won’t with with that one since I submitted it about 3 seconds after the contest started, but you get the idea).
