An OSD Front End with PowerShell

Daniel Ratliff recently upgraded his site to System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1.  Prior to that he was utilizing an HTML-based front end for OSD for ConfigMgr 2007. With the improved capability in ConfigMgr 2012 and support for PowerShell 3.0 in WinPE 4.0, he felt the need to develop his own front end.  And, thankfully, he also felt the need to share it with everyone.
