Contest

We have two copies of Netcmdlets to give away this week.  Prizes will be awarded roughly two weeks from now on Episode 38.  All you have to do to win is be one of the first two people to send in a script that uses the Netcmdlets OR a PowerShellASP page.  You can use their "hobbyist" license to get the job done.  And don't send in a little single statement one-liner--give us a few lines of code at least.  :)  All entries become the property of the PowerScripting Podcast, some rights reserved, do not taunt happy fun ball.  (Just kidding, we'll publish all entries on the website.  But seriously--don't taunt happy fun ball.)
