<JonWalz> This is very cool http://curah.microsoft.com/67912/powershell-summit-na-2014

<alevyinroc> I’m slightly considering doing this: http://ozar.me/2014/05/one-pound-sql-server-dell-venue-pro-8/

<Jaykul> Hey, anyone ever seen a laptop get a bar in the screen and have half the screen be washed out like … https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152219758933402&set=a.10151468972933402.1073741827.592718401&type=1

<gpduck> Also here is the link to the provider framework: https://github.com/beefarino/p2f

<vhusker> talk about the summit reminds me.  Snover put out the article on using JEA today.  http://blogs.technet.com/b/privatecloud/archive/2014/05/14/just-enough-administration-step-by-step.aspx

<JonWalz> http://powershell.org/wp/2013/03/05/episode-218-powershell-jokes-and-sql-talk-with-the-midnightdbas/

<Jaykul> Stuwee: SHhhh. https://msconfiggallery.cloudapp.net/

<Jaykul> category list in sidebar http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/

<sScriptngWife> ## I have an announcement.  I rode the mechanical bull successfully Wed night! pics and videos coming soon

<Jaykul> ## You broke the SQLite provider. Whine Whine.

<ScriptWarrior> ## Ask jim about Lucky Strike :)

<Stuwee> ## Can you go into more detail on PSGET ?

<Jaykul> ## Exceept it doesn’t handle dependencies (yet)

<Jaykul> ## And you can’t upload modules (yet)

<organicit> ## can we host our internal Module repo?

<Jaykul> ## QUESTION: Your most complicated module doesn’t have dependencies on other modules?

<Stuwee> ## How would we browse those modules today or do you need to be “invited”?

<Jaykul> ## DO YOU THINK we should enforce the use of the technet “technology tree” categories? I.e.: pick ONE category?

<Jaykul> ## Also, do you know there’s a preference variable to turn off autoloading, or make it autoload only when you explicitly specify Module\Verb-Noun

<Stuwee> ## What was that Philadelphia code camp statement?

<0halr9000> ## like this: what’s MEF
<6jrusbatch> ## Is scriptcs extensible at all?
<12DougFinke> ## Some folks are concerned that Scriptcs is built on Roslyn, a CTP and the ecosystem is not there. What do you think?
<0Jaykul> ## Is Roslyn EVER going to actually ship?
<0Jaykul> ## Why is ScriptCS built on Roslyn instead of Mono’s (already shipped) REPL?

<4Keith_> ## Do you thinking using Roslyn would allow you to build an effective in-app scripting solution complete with Intellisense and debugging similar to VBA?
<12json2> ## Doesnt Roslyn already permit loading/running .cs at runtime? What does ScriptCS add to the “WoW/LUA-like” scripting story?
