When writing scripts I'm always forgetting the TypeNames for services in the farm. This comes up when you're trying to retrieve a service in PowerShell like this:

$ServiceInstance = Get-SPServiceInstance | where {$_.TypeName -eq "What was the TypeName of the service?"}

So here they all are -- all TypeNames for SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, and SharePoint 2007 in glorious alphabetical order:

SharePoint 2007

SharePoint 2007 doesn't have the nice cmdlets like later versions so we'll need to do a bit of digging:

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")

$farm = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPFarm]::Local
$TypeNames = @()

foreach ($service in $farm.Services) {
	$TypeNames += $service.TypeName
}
