    Me and Slicendice share the mother tongue, I am sure of that even not knowing him any better than from here because me coming from bilingual (Finnish / Swedish) home having two mother tongues, one of those official languages of Finland is also his mother tongue

    That being said, both Finnish and Swedish (mostly) lack these three or more consonant combinations which are so difficult in English and for me in German here in my adopted home country.

    GTH is a combination I get wrong very often, as well as THR (like in through).

    Yep, Kari is right, Finnish/Swedish background here, and I always confuse/misspell th and ht especially if there is a 3rd consonant involved. Finnish is so easy, you spell what you say and you say what you spell, no exceptions. Why complicate things. :-D

    My ESD and UUP comparison project is totally out of control now. So much I wanna do with PowerShell now that is more important than a simple .iso to .iso comparison for file content and sizes. It will be completed eventually but not right now. Sorry to everyone who was waiting for an answer to the big size difference between UUP and ESD created ISOs. :-)

    PowerShell is very interesting and I never took the time to learn it and the whole philosophy properly so I decided to learn it from scratch, the right way, including formatting, versioning, documenting and help file creation, so that I don't create a bunch of spaghetti hacks in the future. :-D

    Here's a tip for you to practise PS scripting: create a PS script that changes in which folder PS and PS ISE open (including admin (elevated) PS & PS ISE), greeting you every time you open PS or PS ISE. Mine looks like this when I open elevated PS ISE:

    Name:  image.png
Views: 139
Size:  25.7 KB

    Make a script that does that. Below what it should do and my suggestions to variable names. I'll post my script when you have first at least tried to make yours . (No offence meant, I can't know your scripting level, for beginners this is a nice test.)

    Script should get the current time in 24H format HH:mm to variable $Hour, then write that time to variable $Now as HH:mm (h:mm tt), the time in 24H format followed by time in 12H format in parenthesis.

    Then comes the IF ELSE: Greeting includes the time which depends on if time (variable $Hour, time in 24H format) is less than 06:00, less than 12:00, less than 18:00, or greater or equal than 18:00.

    Format of greeting is Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening %USERNAME%, depending on time of the day, and in my case the first quarter of the day "It's quite late" if time is between 00:00 and 06:00. Whatever the greeting, it is followed by "The time is" and the content of variable $Now. You can of course make greetings as you wish.

    Write an empty line between the greeting and PS prompt. Finally the script sets the working / opening folder to %userprofile% folder.

    Notice: This script needs to be saved in %userprofile%\Documents\WindowsPowerShell folder as Microsoft.PowerShellISE_profile.ps1 for PS ISE, and Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1 for normal PS.

    Kari


    EDIT: Removed the script, what's the point in asking someone to do an exercise and post the solution!

    Well not all Scandinavian is simple. Try the insane Danish counting. Literally translated is for example

    nine and half three


    equals nine and (minus) half three (twenties) for fifty nine!
    (the twenties is omitted now, the minus is just convention - no term is used).


    To explain this is

    9+(-0.5 + 3)*20!

    Re. consonants.

    Remember Johnny Cash And 'Get Rhythm'

    Also I had Finnish friend Mr Kuylenstierna (can't remember exact spelling).

    In English we would say something like

    Kai len stee erna

    In Finnish it was something like

    Shoe len Sherna

    and you say Finnish is simple!

    Gyllenstierna is a Swedish name, not Finnish. Swedish and Finnish can't even be remotely compared. Try comparing Finnish to Hungarian or Turkish, you get much more similarities as they are sibling languages just like Swedish, Norwegian Danish, Dutch and Afrikaans are.
