Powershell, Me and the MCM part II

Published on: December 20, 2010

Last week I posted the first part of this series.  I thought it would be a good idea to give a little follow-up on how my foray into Powershell as I attempted to download this videos.

Attempt 1:  Failed miserably.  I did not have enough disk space and thus only downloaded about half of the videos.  I tried to remedy this by changing the path to a different volume but that threw out some error messages.  The script works best when continuing to use the $env variable in the path for the location to dump the files.

Attempt 2:  From a different machine this was working beautifully until I noticed that every once in a while a file would error out and the download would resume with the next video in the list.  When I attempted to look up those particular videos, they were all present.  So I restarted thinking it was a local environment problem.

Attempt 3:  I figured out that attempt 2 was failing because my laptop was going to standby – duh!!!  I disabled the standby and finally got the download to work from start to finish without fail.

Now, I can place these videos on my Android and watch/listen from anywhere I have my phone.  Since I have an auxiliary port in my car, I can just plug the phone in, let it charge, and listen to the videos while I commute – through the car speakers.  It is nice to have such a high-level of training material available for a quick refresher or for that first time through.  I recommend people get on board and take advantage of what Microsoft, Paul Randal, and others have given to the community through this training.  Since I pay out of pocket for my training – this is the right price for me.

Thanks for the Christmas Gift.
