Looks like I'm board for the #PowerShell cruise next summer http://poshcruise.org/  Who else is going and what are you hoping to get out of it?
The inaugural Posh Cruise will be setting sail from the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in NYC for a 7 day Bahamian cruise on the Norwegian Gem. The Gem is the fourth of four Jewel class ships. The pictures and videos here on Posh Cruise can be from any of the four ships (Jewel, Jade, Pearl, ...

Sure the code inside looks like a lot of work, but I only had to write it once. I can easily set a new reminder from a PowerShell prompt using my alias:

tickle "change the laundry" -min 30

That's not hard at all. And you could easily import your CSV and pass values to the function. I wrote this for ad-hoc and one time reminders.

+Gamal Baker She"s done many years of improv competitions in a Canadian league and to be good at it you must be able to switch on and switch off characters instantly so unknowingly at the time she was training for this series :)
One trick she uses is she has a set of specific songs for each characters she plays so before each scene she listen to the character's music and that helps her getting into the character's mind.

Eric always has good stuff.
 
Eric's got something special for you today! #HyperV   #Ubuntu  
Linux on Hyper-V is becoming more and more popular as Microsoft continues to increase their support for it. One of the nicest parts about it is the “It Just Works” aspect. For distributions that are less than a few years old, the Hyper-V Integration Components are built right in. There isn’t any time wasted fiddling with scouring the Internet to look for instructions on compiling or even scripting them in. For me, my interest was sharpened when m...
