How to undo a Firefox Restore/Refresh/Reset

I was just having one of those days man.

I was feeling incredibly petulant… my patience meter was at zero percent and I really didn’t want to mess with Firefox.

But alas, for some inexplicable reason this Monday morning, my Firefox browser simply wouldn’t load Javascript webpages and I couldn’t enable it in the Firefox options.  I eventually figured out a workaround but that’s not the purpose of this post.

Today I want to show you a really really stupid mistake I made and how to fix it.

You see, when my browser starting crapping out on me – I wanted a quick fix.  So I thought:

In this post we’ll review the comment based help system.  Let’s do it!

Say what’s up to PowerShell 5 (Part 26/27)

When you start to get into scripting you’re going to want to parameterize your scripts because it makes it reusable and professional (not to mention respectable).

In this guide I’m going to show you how to touch up your scripts to make them easier to read.   As a rule of thumb, you should never use aliases in your scripts and you should break long lines at commas and pipes.

Technically you could also use a back-tick to break the line but it’s kind of hard to see those back-ticks (even with the font size cranked up) so I stay far from the ticks.
