I like

function OpenProfile {
notepad C:\Users\flq\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1

function StartSolution {
$sln = @(gci *.sln)
if ($sln.Length -gt 0) {
$start = "." + $sln[0].Name
Invoke-Expression $start
else { Write-Host "No Visual Studio solution present" }
set-alias vs StartSolution

function Get-UNCPath {
$currentDirectory = Get-Location
$currentDrive = Split-Path -qualifier $currentDirectory.Path
$logicalDisk = Gwmi Win32_LogicalDisk -filter "DriveType = 4 AND DeviceID = '$currentDrive'"
Write-Output $currentDirectory.Path.Replace($currentDrive, $logicalDisk.ProviderName)

I might start a stackoverflow question for this. Once you get your profile right, you can move with speed. Powershell remoting with winrm means I rarely use rdb these days thankfully.

I think you're right - would be nice to have a good SO page on this.

Id suggest setting Notepad++ alias as "npp" and not "notepad" :)
