my pre-holiday Schdraggel #1

I’ve just been looking on what to do and where to go this summer on the Azores … and it seems that 18 days on the islands won’t be enough to visit all the awesome places on this atlantic archipel! 🙁 

Software-Tipp: Darktable

great RAW photo editor for Linux!

darktable is an open source photography workflow application and raw developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.

VisualStudioCode Is Awesome!

I often complained that Notepad++ was the only usable text editor on Windows.. until I came in touch with VisualStudioCode in summer last year. It rocks!

It comes with a ton of cool features and is easily extensible with plugins. Just take a look at how great git diffs are visualized. And its FREE.


Thanks Microsoft, you really did us a great favor with this awesome tool!



Wrapping A PowerShell-Script Call In A Batchfile

Yet another opinion on this topic, YAY!

As I wasn’t satisfied with the most common solutions out there (first 5 google hits) – I’ve decided to create a .ps1->.bat wrapper on my own:

>> WrapPowerShellScript.bat on GitHub <<

Why did I create another version of the very same thing that should be well known already? – because I wanted to pass all arguments/parameters that are passed to the .bat-File to the wrapped PowerShell script:

Update: of course this also works with ‘BoundParameters’ 🙂
