• Azure Functions: Building a Telegram Bot with PowerShell 1

    Today I’ve got a fun one, we’re going to use Azure Functions to build a Telegram Bot with PowerShell. Sounds interesting? Well here we go. Before diving into the technical details, lets have a quick overview of what we’re trying to do.

  • lost & found: ntSystems Onion Service, Cloudflare DNS

    I’ve been using Onion Services aka. Hidden Services to connect to remote machines for some time now.

  • Keeping track of PowerShellCore releases on GitHub

    I’ve been using PowerShell Core on my MacBook for a while now. As the code is still in its early stages, there’s no way of managing/updating the software one is running, at least none that I would be aware of. I did miss some updates and, as a result, had problems with Visual Studio Code. So I’ve put together a quick function that checks the latest release on GitHub and can conveniently be put into my $PROFILE.
