WMI Explorer 2014: Running Queries

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013 by Alex Riedel
WMI has a large amount of namespaces, classes and properties.

Sometimes all you need is an editor

Monday, March 30th, 2009 by Alex Riedel
System Administrator are a busy lot and some of them literally run around all day fighting fires on computers no longer connected to anything. Others use remote access to tend to a large number of servers. Or both. Thanks to scripting, most repetitive tasks are taken care of.
