Use Powershell to read XML commentsview story

http://serverfault.com – So I'm working on a way to use Powershell to get a list of scheduled tasks. Through my research, I determined that the only way to get "most" tasks is to use SCHTASKS. This command does allow for XML output which you can push right into a variable: $tasks = [xml](SCHTASKS /QUERY /XML ONE) Now, the problem comes up is that the task name is stored as an XML comment.

http://askubuntu.com – This is a theoretical scenario that has come up as part of another question: I have x Ubuntu desktops with x users. Users don't have sudo privs I can let them install things through the software center by editing the Policy Kit rules But that would let them install anything (inc games) which is not desirable. I'm wondering if there's a hack that would be able to limit what sorts of things a us (HowTos)

http://serverfault.com – I have nginx+php-fpm+apc setup. No DB. In data folder i have a simple php script that when called with filename parameter checks if the file exists, if it does then it gives it away, if not then it downloads it in the same folder and then gives it away.

Own domain, PHP mail and Google Apps Gmailview story

http://serverfault.com – I have a domain thru NameCheap that has no hosting. It has its A-record set to tumblr so the domain points to tumblr's servers.
