So I wrote a PowerShell script several years ago that can log an AD login to a network share when someone logs in.  I've been asked to share this in the past so I have added this to PoshCode.

I'm going to try to start adding some of my scripts a little more frequently.

forever. Description (No HTML please, light textile accepted for markup). This will allow you to create a log to a file share of AD logins. This creates two files one based on logins to the computer, ...

I got sick of trying to make documentation after doing an install, update, etc while at work, so I decided to start recording these tasks as videos. Initially I tested with Camstudio, but the idea quickly caught on at work so we are going to go with the more professional solution Camtasia.

This solution is really slick, I can just record the entire process, then come back to the video and add additional notes. This way I don't have to worry about if I forgot a step or didn't add something that was obvious to me, but not for someone else.

Setting up OpenAOS Gingerbread rom on an Archos 101 using kboot.

Ensure you are running the latest Archos firmware. This can be done by checking for updates from android, or manually downloading from the archos website and then installing in the recovery menu.

Download Kboot from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1522024
Extract the files and copy the kboot folder to /mnt/storage on your archos.

Configure the files for OpenAOS Gingerbread Bull.
Download the following files from http://www.openaos.org/wp-upload/gen8/2011-12-24/ReleaseCandidate_UNSUPPORTED/

kernel_gen8_*.tar.gz
openaos-gingerbread-bull-gen8_*.img
gen8_data.img.tar.bz2
Extract these files to a temporary directory.
Rename the file openaos-gingerbread-bull-gen8_*.img to openaos-gingerbread.img
Rename either data_256, data_512, or data_1024 to data.img
depending on if you would like a 256MB, 512MB, or 1024MB data partition for Gingerbread.

Create a file called menu.lst with the following line. (If you are using windows you may need to use an editor that supports linux formatting)

Gingerbread||/kboot/os/Gingerbread/openaos-gingerbread.img|/init|0

Create the folder Gingerbread in /mnt/storage/kboot/os on your archos
Copy the following extracted files to the Gingerbread folder on your archos. initramfs.cpio.gz, zimage, and openaos-gingerbread.img

Copy menu.lst and data.img to /mnt/storage on your archos.


Download the SDE from: http://www.archos.com/support/download/firm_dev/firmware_archos_android_gen8.aos
This will void your software warranty.

Install the SDE - This needs only be done the first time you make changes
Reboot Archos device and hold down "Vol-" button after screen goes black
Choose "Update Firmware"connect your Archos to your computer via USB
Upload the SDE firmware file to your device
Safely disconnect the USB connection
Press ok on Archos device
Reboot
Hold down "Vol-" button after screen goes black to enter the menu again.

Install zImage and initramfs.cpio.gz for Kboot
Go to "Recovery Menu"
Choose "Developer Edition Menu"
Next choose "Flash Kernel and Initramfs"
Connect your Archos device by USB to your computer.
Transfer the zImage and initramfs.cpio.gz you downloaded for kboot to your Archos.
Safely disconnect the USB connection.
Press ok on Archos device.
Reboot and hold down "Vol-" button again after screen goes black
Choose "Developer Edition"

You should now be presented with the kboot menu, from here you can choose Gingerbread to start the OpenAOS multiboot menu, then choose Gingerbread again.
The first time you boot Gingerbread this will take quite some time, possibly even up to two minutes.

Once in Gingerbread connect to WiFi
Open the browser and choose bookmarks.
Click on the one starting with "Cyanogenmod". This will bring you to the wiki page of Cyanogenmod with the latest google apps download.
Download market for Cyanogenmod 7.
Reboot
Once the device is started you will be prompted by the android wizard.
Make sure to re-select your language in the setup or the market may crash.

So far I haven't figured out how to directly boot Gingerbread from Kboot, but I will update if I find out how to do this.

Very poor quality. We went there about 7:20 PM on a Wednesday. There was hardly anyone there, and I now know why. All of the food seemed to have been sitting out for 30-60 minutes. So many thing were gone or were cold. We were there until 7:40 and the only fresh things put out were dumplings and doughnuts. The only thing preventing them from getting only one star, is that I didn't get sick from the food. We won't be back.
