This snippet has been saving me time and tedium for years: replace spaces with dashes in PowerShell

Dir | Rename-Item –NewName { $_.name –replace " ","-" }

Had to bring my laptop into the office for a bit of tech support. I found out too late how embarrassingly dusty my screen had become.

stuck on a hard problem? can't figure out why the thing you're working on is throwing errors?

Kipple is useless objects, like junk mail or match folders after you use the last match or gum wrappers or yesterday's homeopape. When nobody's around, kipple reproduces itself. For instance, if you to go bed leaving any kipple around your apartment, when you wake up there is twice as much of it. It always gets more and more.

No one can win against kipple, except temporarily and maybe in one spot.
