In my past life I used to program dBase and Foxpro. I am the sort of programmer that is kind of lazy, and I like looking for samples of code and then working by code around it, or using the sample to get an Idea how to do stuff.
Typically I use msdn and a number of blogs as my main source of stuff. That was until I found the Windows PowerShell Cookbook.
Lee Holmes has created a book that is just what I want and need. It gives me a description of things I would want to do with PowerShell and then working sample code. It is a god send.
Today examples are how can I get perfmon counters from another machine using PowerShell? That would be on Page 270 [Hint: New-Object System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter
