This has been broken for me for months, but recently I found a fix. Using the Steam application, all you can do is browse your library. The store, community, forums etc; all don’t work. If you use Big Picture mode, everything is great. If you use a normal browser, everything is great.
Steam support gave up after a couple of suggestions. But after working through many possible fixes, I worked out what was wrong. Continue reading “Fixes for the “Steam Stuck at a Blank Screen” Issue”
I got a Vive. A real, working Virtual Reality system. That makes it officially The Future (hover-boards / flying cars / utopian government notwithstanding).
I’ve been using it for a bit over a week and here are my my thoughts.

Steam is awesome. It keeps all my games organised, makes it easy to play with my friends, lets me buy games for cheap and has a library of information about the games I like.
The client also tends to run like a dog.

The final functions are done (in the last part) now it’s just the main body of the script. This will bring all the code together and produce the output we want. The full script can be found here.

This part is going to focus on the Move-ArchiveObject function which will actually perform the archive (or return from archive) process on a chosen folder. The full script can be found here.

Continuing on from the last part where I defined the Get-FolderSize function the next function to be defined is Get-FolderInformation. This gets the relevant information about all the folders that could be processed and outputs that information as objects. The full script can be found here.

In the last part we wrote out the Powershell to handle the parameters (including some crude validation) and for the skeleton of the rest of the script. In the next few parts we’ll define the functions the script will use. The full script can be found here.

In this part we’ll start writing some Powershell. Initially we’ll write about the function call and function structure (see below). The full script can be found here. Continue reading “Powershell Archiving Script, Part 3”
Or, A Cunning Plan for Archiving.
The first thing to do is a quick brain-dump of things I want the script to do. From that I should be able to get a better idea about how I want it to work.
So in no particular order here is a list of all the elements I want in the script;
