## Powershell: Stress your CPU with some Prime Numbers

#get number of cores
$cpu = Get-WmiObject win32_processor | Select-Object Numberoflogicalprocessors$cores = [convert]::ToInt32($cpu.Numberoflogicalprocessors, 10) #define functions function get-prime($i){

for ($a=3;$a -lt $i;$a++){
if ($i %$a -eq 0){
return "no"
}
else{}
}
}

#create a task for each core
foreach ($core in 1..$cores){
start-job -ScriptBlock {

for ($i=1000000;$i -le 10000000; $i++){$prime = get-prime($i) if ($prime -ne "no"){
write-output "$i" } else {} } } } Wait-job * clear Receive-Job * remove-job  ## Snoverisms: POSH – Like programming with hand grenades Sticker I stumbled upon a post in /r/powershell which linked to this site: http://snoverisms.com/ I liked the first quote so much that I made a sticker with a Silhouette printer! Here’s the PNG (In Silhouette you have to insert PNG’s and later convert them to svg like files … whatever): The stickers look like this here’s the positive: and here’s the negative (already on my notebook sorry!): ## Automatic Proxy Authentification from$Profile

Works if you’re behind an AD. Put this in your $Profile: function auth-proxy{ netsh winhttp import proxy source=ie$webClient = new-object System.Net.WebClient
$webClient.Proxy.Credentials = [System.Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultNetworkCredentials } auth-proxy{}  ## MOTD for Powershell (Using the fortune-mod (linux) Package files) I downloaded and altered the fortune-mod fortune files so that there’s one fortune per line. This can be downloaded here: http://pastebin.com/TnxeyWJm Next step is to add the following thing to your$Profile

function get-motd{
$fortunes = get-content \path\to\fortunes.txt get-random -InputObject$fortunes
}
.......
clear-host
get-motd{}


It’s virtually important that you run the function after the clear-host. Otherwise the quote will not appear / will be erradicated before it even had time to present itself to you)
