How to find the Active Directory object when given the GUID

If you know the GUID you should be able to find the object
Good blog post about that here
http://mmcblog.com/2009/02/21/how-to-find-an-active-directory-object-by-objectguid/
If you have an object and want to quickly find the DN adfind (also mentioned in that blog post) does that too.  For example for a user
adfind -sc u:username dn
Thanks
