The other day, during one of the monthly #PSTweetChat sessions, I exchanged some tweets with Joshua King. We got on the topic of countdown timers and he shared some code he uses for his YouTube channel. The command creates a progress bar and counts down, displaying some humorous messages along the way. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with his solution but I can’t help myself and am always looking to see what else it can do. So after a bit of time with it, I came up with a version I call Start-PSCountdown. This is something I expect to be able to use in my PowerShell training classes and conferences.
