PowerShell, PowerTab, PSCX, Console, Terminus and Vim

Here's something for all you Powershell / WMIC / VB / cmd script monkeys :-).

Powershell + PowerTab + PSCX + Console + Terminus Programmers Fonts + VIM + VIM PowerShell Syntax Highlighting.

In your case for the standard theme of PowerTab this would be :

$PowerTabConfig.Colors.BorderColor = 'DarkBlue'

you can see all configurable colors byt looking at :
