Hello, world.

My name is Ben, and I have a confession to make: I'm a lazy sysadmin. 

Now, I don't mean lazy in a work-shy sense, I mean lazy in the sense that I like to be as efficient as possible, and find easy ways to do things.  My ethos is simple: if it can be automated, automate it - if I can write a script that will save me a few minutes of not having to do something boring or repetitive, then I'll write the script.

Some of the scripts I write are specific to a particular task, but most of them can also be adapted and re-used for other purposes.  I've written hundreds of scripts, ranging from a few lines to over a thousand lines, mostly in PowerShell, and mostly for Windows, Exchange, or Lync, but I have a few other languages in my arsenal, and quite a few other applications I've scripted for.

The purpose of this blog is to share the scripts that I write and tricks that I learn with others like me - people who need to get the job done quickly and efficiently so that they can move on to solving the next problem.  

I hope that you find them useful.

- Ben
