Scripting Games–making work

Posted by: | May 9, 2013 | No Comment |

I saw this in one of the submissions:

$Properties = @{}
$Properties[‘Computer’] = $SystemInfo.__SERVER
$Properties[‘OperatingSystem’] = "$($OSInfo.Caption) – $($OSInfo.CSDVersion)"
$Properties[‘PhysicalMemory’] = $SystemInfo.TotalPhysicalMemory  

My immediate thought was the entrant likes making work for themselves. The hash table can be created in a much simpler manner

$Properties = @{
Computer = $SystemInfo.__SERVER
OperatingSystem = "$($OSInfo.Caption) – $($OSInfo.CSDVersion)"
PhysicalMemory = $SystemInfo.TotalPhysicalMemory

Same result. Less typing and easiert o read when you come back to the script in 6 months time
