A couple weeks ago we hired an intern. I recently gave him a task to create a bunch of DSN's on some servers. I told him to take some extra time and maybe figure out how to script it, and also let him know that I thought all the info was stored in the registry.
He came back into my office later on in the day with a big smile exclaiming "This is awesome! Did you know you can navigate the registry just like a file system in Powershell ?"
I just love being there in the moment when the light bulb goes on and someone new "gets" Powershell. Its a beautiful thing!
