A few weeks ago, The Geek showed you how you can use the command prompt to find when your computer was started up last. In this last installation of Geek School for PowerShell, we are going to write a reusable PowerShell command to do the same thing.

First, please let me express my appreciation to Mr. Gibb for the PowerShell series. And to How-To Geek as well. I have bookmarked each article (12 in all, if I counted correctly) and am looking forward to my education on PowerShell via the articles.
If I may, one quick question... Is there a recommended order in which the articles should be read and absorbed?

First to Last would be ones natural assumption

Regarding your statement "First to Last would be ones natural assumption," I could go back and look up the publishing dates of each article and assume that those dates would provide the correct order in which they should be studied.
But other considerations can dictate the order of publishing, such as:
a) the amount of wordage space available in a particular issue,
b) the simple availability of an article for immediate publishing when others are still being written, or
c) any number of other reasons that could result in the publication of the articles in an order not conducive to learning.
In other forums, when I have been the Answerer rather than the Questioner, I have taken care to provide exact, researched and polite responses, even when I thought the answer to the question was either obvious or quickly available with little effort from the person asking.
Your answer of "First to Last would be ones natural assumption." was little more than a smart-alec remark shouted from the last row of an amphitheater-sized classroom by a C- or D+ student. Further, your grammar was poor. Worse, you didn't answer the question.
I surmise you will not become a high-value resource for those seeking assistance in this or any other forum. Answers such as yours can be self-fulfilling, however. At this point my first question in this forum might well be my last.
In the meantime, the question remains unanswered. In studying the PowerShell articles, in what order should they be read and absorbed?

Well someone's having a bad day... Please do note that the wink smiley shows that I am talking in a jovial manner. I never tried to aggravate you. And the poor grammar would be because it is extremely hard to navigate on an iPod.

Please accept my sincerest apologies. I did step into the arena of rudeness, didn't I?
My wife loves Big Bang. I don't find it that funny myself (my sense of humor favors the older version of Two and a Half Men), but I love to hear her laugh at Sheldon and the others. To me, her sound of her laughter is far better than the comedy itself.
And I have found the answer to my question myself: since I'm going to read all the articles anyway, why not just go ahead and do that and sort them in my head as I go along?
I wish you well....

Not to worry! Enjoy your day

The fact is, your question does point out something that's been on my todo list... the navigation for the Geek School articles is lousy, and needs to be fixed.
And yes, unfortunately @NanoGeek being sarcastic isn't the most useful first answer to your question.
