<Schlauge> ### so you’re given IPv6 IPs from the service provider???

<Schlauge> ### how is your internal router passing that information???

<Schlauge> ### but if you’re old printer doesn’t support IPv6… then it will only accept IPv4 packets

<justpaul> ##does Ed run a firewall at the perimeter? if so, which one?

<randal_hicks> preface questions with ## please so they stand out

<stevenmurawski> ## I think Lync uses an implicit remoting management model like Exchange.  Any gotchas when running the implicit remoting based commands?

<alevyinroc> ## from strictly a client-side perspective, can I use PowerShell to send messages via Lync?

<gpduck> ## steven you need to talk to jason helmick about how those tutorials work and possibly doing something similar at summit next year

<logicaldiagram> ## You’ll still manage the powershell.org repo then?

<Vern_Anderson> ## Do you use System Center?

<KC1> ##I really like the git hub feel and his code seems organized and clear. Was the ability to organize it into levels why he chose github over poshcode? Or is PoshCode more for random scripts? Apologies if this question was already asked/answered

<JasonMor_> ## but you have to run that twice right?

<organicit> ## maybe someone already asked but can Steve elaborate on what he uses for a build server?

The Question – what was the first task you completed with PowerShell?

  • resetting user passwords in AD
