PowerShell Hamlet

Picking up the challenge which James set with his PowerShell Macbeth, I decided to do Hamlet. I have actually had a non-PowerShell computerized Hamlet implementation some time ago, but for James, here comes the PowerShell one:

PS C:\> Add-PSSnapin Shakespeare.Hamlet

Do you want to follow instructions from this untrusted publisher?
File Revenge.ps1xml is published by CN="The Ghost", L=Elsinore, C=DK and is not trusted on your system. Only run scripts from trusted publishers.
[V] Never trust [D] Do not trust [R] Listen once [A] Always listen [?] Help (default is "D"): R

PS C:\> Get-Characters | Start-Revenge
Confirm
Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Continuing the revenge requires performing operation "Get killed" on Target "Polonius".
[Y] Yes [A] Yes to All [N] No [L] No to All [S] Suspend [?] Help (default is "Y"): Y

Confirm

Continuing the revenge requires performing operation "Get killed" on Target "Gertrude".

And so on. 🙂

Spring PowerGUI Wallpaper

PowerGUI PowerShell Spring WallpaperAndrey did it again – he has just created a beautiful Spring wallpaper for all of us PowerGUI fans.

I think it also answers Richard’s request for a computerized version of “I wondered lonely as a cloud” (yeah, I know these are not daffodils, but what a jocund company they are!)

You can get a version of the wallpaper for any screen resolution on the PowerGUI downloads page. Have fun!

Shakespeare and IT

It occurred to me yesterday while discussing one of PowerGUI dialog boxes that the following is probably the way Hamlet would have been expressed these days:

To be, or not to be - Shakespear’s Hamlet in 21st century

Frankly, I have always thought that in the original play, the great Bard have not made the choice obvious enough. It’s all about usability…
