Set Active Directory user property's with Powershell

Need to edit a user property here's how:

To set the Dail-in property to deny access, you look for the corresponding value, in this case:
"msNPAllowDailin" which is set to TRUE.

In Powershell you type:set-ADUser username -Replace @{msnpallowdialin=$false}

Now when you look at the same value in the attribute editor it displays FALSE.

I haven't tried it but i guess everything that has a value can be changed or edited by the same command.
If you know some others, or disagree let me know.

Get system up time script and alternative ways

Save as a ps1 script, and run.

$computer = "computername"

$lastboottime = (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem -computername $computer).LastBootUpTime

$sysuptime = (Get-Date) – [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeconverter]::ToDateTime($lastboottime) 
Write-Host "$computer has been up for: " $sysuptime.days "days" $sysuptime.hours "hours" $sysuptime.minutes "minutes" $sysuptime.seconds "seconds" 

Outputs like:

PS D:\_DATA\Scripts> .\Uptime.ps1
computername has been up for:  71 days 4 hours 26 minutes 50 seconds
