How to get the SID of an account

Someone asked me how to write a script that will show you the SID and some other "stuff" of a specified username. So here it is, really simple and fast to do. The below will show you:
- name (which you need to know in advance)
- SID
- Description
- If it is disabled or not
- If the password expires
- If a password is required
- If the password can be changed.

-Script Begins-
'============================================================
' NAME: findSID-Name.vbs
' AUTHOR: Jimmy Andersson, Q Advice AB
' DATE: 21/04/2009
' Version: 1.0 - initial version
' USAGE: cscript findSID-Name.vbs
'============================================================

Option Explicit

'============================================================
'==== Declare variables and sets objWMIService
'============================================================
Dim strComputer, objWMIService, objAccount
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &
"\root\cimv2")

'============================================================
'==== Below code gets the SID of a specified account.
'==== NOTE: If you specify a domain name instead of a computer name you'll
'==== get the SID of a domain account. E.g. name='admin',domain='root' '================'===========================================
Set objAccount =_
objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='x-admin',Domain='client001'")
Call getInfo


'===========================================================
'==== Function to get properties
'===========================================================
Function getInfo
wScript.Echo "Name: " & objAccount.Name
wScript.Echo "SID: " & objAccount.SID
wScript.Echo "Description: " & objAccount.Description
wScript.Echo "Disabled: " & objAccount.Disabled
wScript.Echo "Pwd Expires: " & objAccount.PasswordExpires
wScript.Echo "Pwd Required: " & objAccount.PasswordRequired
wScript.Echo "Pwd Changeable: " & objAccount.PasswordChangeable
End Function
-Script Ends-
