"I have been listening to your postcast's and you guys are doing great job.
Here is something I want to share as a single liner 🙂
I have text file with the name text1.txt, text2.txt and so on..
I have always been renaming these files manually for long time and now with Power (PowerShell) in my hand I do this..
Get-ChildItem *.txt | Rename-Item -NewName { $_.name -replace 'text(d+)', '$1.text'}
HTH for all those who come across situations when you want to rename such files.. this is for files with name starting with "text".. I am working on making this script as general as possible."
