One of the BOF sessions (4:15 in theater II) was on using WMI from scripts and VB. In that session I promised to make the source available from the samples I showed. The source has been posted on my site at http://www.tmurgent.com/download/briforum2005/wmi.htm No great functionality in these samples, but it shows you how to do it.
I also sent brian some slides from the session, so they should show up on his site at some point.
The briforum really was an awsome event, and I can't wait for next year!
