Script Dumpster

At my job I tend to have quiet and busy periods, just like everyone else.

At some times I even have very busy periods… like now.
Because of that I tend to not have time or motivation to do any blogging, but that doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything productive.

Because of that I thought “why not just share the work I’m creating?”.

An idea was born….

Then it hit me..

Why not make quick and simple posts containing a short description of the problem I was facing at the time, followed by the solution [be it a one-liner, script, function etc.].

So there we have it…

I will try and keep this a bit more up-to-date and will just post snippets or sometimes even work-in-progress, perhaps it’s interesting and it can help you with your own projects.

If anything, it will stimulate me to document my work better 🙂

Without further ado

Here’s the link to my first quick Script Dumpster post, with hopefully more to follow!

Happy scripting! 🙂


Script dumpster: Get-AutoStartService

The Problem

A frequent issue on servers is when services that are supposed to start simply haven’t started.

There’s a simple one-liner that can show you the services that meet these requirements for you:

Want to directly start up these services? Not a problem!

The Function

I prefer to make my solutions re-usable because well.. I’m lazy.

In case you have the same feeling, here’s the function I’ve created for this with some added functionality.


If you have any questions about the function, pieces of code used or perhaps tips [if you have any, please do share!!], let me know and leave a comment.

Happy scripting! 🙂
