Shortly after the Windows 2.0 PowerShell Bible came out, I was contacted by Ed Wilson of Microsoft Scripting Guy fame. He asked all of the authors if we’d like to contribute a guest blog post to the Hey, Scripting Guy! blog. I am pleased to say that mine is now published. I extended a script […]
The book is now available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in the US. Looks like it will take a day or two to make it overseas.
In a previous post (https://unlockpowershell.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/copytocolorizedhtmlscript-editor-add-on-for-powergui/), I discussed the add-on that I created for PowerGUI, which I use to copy scripts into colorized HTML.

Well, sort of. We are done writing the book, done with editorial review, and are working on the final proofreading before the book is published. It’s been a long, hard road, but I have learned a lot. The book is on target for an October release. We have a cover too The book is available […]
The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon! Of course, we aren’t actually DONE with the book – I still have five chapters to deliver, and three of those have not even been started. My fellow authors are also working feverishly to meet our deadlines.
