i want to be able to edit a scope in windows advanced firewall (using 2008 server) in notepad, rather than the annoying limited GUI.  This way I can add huge ranges at once.

Not through notepad, no, but it's possible to edit the firewall rules through the NETSH command line utility. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771920%28v=ws.10%29.aspx has info.
