PowerShell Summit NA 2014

Summit-Horiz-Logo-Color

The PowerShell Summit is an annual, continent-level event featuring expert presenters, participation by the PowerShell product team members, and an incredible opportunity to meet and mingle with the PowerShell community.

Call it a Deep Dive. Call it a conference. Call it whatever you like, the PowerShell Summit is a unique and special event. It’s the in-person gathering place for PowerShell enthusiasts and PowerShell.org forums users. It’s a place to make new connections, learn new techniques, and offer something to your peers and colleagues.

Each PowerShell Summit is an official production of PowerShell.org. Our goal is to seek “host organizations” to help run each annual event, enabling us to move the event from place to place each year. Typically, host organizations will have already run a successful PowerShell Forum event.

Phantom hitchhikers and other urban legends : the strange stories behind tall tales / Albert Jack.

Blogging for a Good Book

phantom I have been interested in myths and urban legends ever since a preteen sleepover introduced me to the story of the The Hook (You know, the one about the couple at the local makeout spot who hear a strange scraping noise on the car.  They get scared and drive quickly home — only to find a bloody hook hanging from the car door handle). I have since learned to be skeptical of these stories — though it sometimes is hard to tell what is based on fact and what is fantasy.

I picked up Albert Jack’s book, and skimmed several stories before sitting down to read it cover to cover.  I was pleased to find many a tale I hadn’t heard before.

Did you hear about the scorned woman who stuffed seafood in the curtain rods throughout the home just before her ex-husband and his new wife put it up for…
