Receive-Job -keep can be used to retrieve results later on, if that's any help.

comment Powershell script to open random video
Seems like the delay is on the lookup, though my system is apparently gratifyingly fast. I'd guess you're either looking at a slow drive, or something accessed over the network on another system. The answer below involving caching is close enough to what I was going to suggest next.

comment Does the Android “OpenVPN Connect” client app let my tablet to have an connectable IP address
Not a worry - it will list your IP in both the admin console on the server, and the application on your tablet. My use of the word local was just to emphasize that you weren't using the WAN IP of the tablet device.

Yes, that's correct. You should be able to access the Android device as it were present on the local network, using the VPN provided IP address.

comment WinRar - Custom shell commands
Are you selecting a single file, or multiple? Just looking at the last line, looks like you might be trying to select all files within the "file" (trying as a folder). But just checking what the last portion of the command is doing (\"%1\*.*\").
