Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and what a better way to show your love and appreciation for your significant other, partner, boyfriend/girlfriend, or someone you admire this year than to sneak their laptop away from them when they’re not looking and load the new PowerGUI Valentine’s Day 2011 desktop wallpaper on it! Think of the warmth it will bring them as they gaze upon that cute little train, being reminded not only of how much you care about them but also about how PowerShell warms our hearts and brings us all together.
Can’t find a moment to get them away from their computer because they’re FaceBooking all weekend? Don’t despair, PowerShell Remoting will help you! Since you’ve already set yourself up as an administrator on their computer, you can run a simple script while they’re sharing their every moment and photo with their friends, leaving them with the new wallpaper once they return to their desktop. Why spend time shopping for flowers or expensive gifts when you could write a script to download the wallpaper from the internet and deploy it as the default wallpaper on your love one’s computer, learning more about PowerShell at the same time? And if you are juggling multiple relationships at the same time, PowerShell automation will let you distribute the gifts all at once!
So take some time and write yourself a nice simple script to deploy this wonderful present on Monday morning, and then sit back and relax and enjoy the rest of your weekend with your loved one (or loved ones, however the case may be).
