Powershell one-liner to check the time on a bunch of servers for DST


Over the weekend I need to check a bunch of servers (mostly Domain Controllers) to see if the DST (Daylight Savings Time) change occurs correctly.  I decided to see how I could do it in Powershell and this is what I came up with: 
Get-Content servers.txt | %{$x = net time \$_; $x[0];If($x[2].contains("Local")){$x[2]}} | Add-Content Servertime.txt
This is a line of Powershell code that will open servers.txt (which is just a list of servers) and for each server it will run the "net time" command.  I pass the first line of the output of the "net time" command $x[0] and check to see if the third line contains "Local".  If it does I pass that line as well ( to see the local time on the servers that are not in my timezone.)  I then send this to Servername.txt
Quick, easy one line of code.  You've gotta love Powershell!  Thanks Microsoft
