Summary: Long story short, Fire TV Stick (2nd Generation) doesn't allow you to calibrate the screen, software wise, forcing you to use your TV settings (if available) to fit the screens content within it's borders. Super annoying for some apps, but you can fix this dumb issue as I was able to. If your TV allows you to adjust its settings, then you'd be fine as well, but the Vizio I have, has no such setting.

This appears to be the case w/ Powershell Core 6.1. I'm actually unsure when this behavior started happening and whether is module or powershell related. Regardless, figured I'd post this since I was initially confused myself when running some things on another system.

Summary: I started running into issue utilizing Cisco AnyConnect on my Mac basically complaining about not able to overwrite IP forwarding tables. This was on 4.6.x. Since my VPN endpoints were not providing me w/ an updated client and w/ no access to Cisco Anyconnect downloads, my only option was to try openconnect. It was totally worth it, here is why and how to set it up. PreReqs: Homebrew Installing OpenConnect: Launch MacOS Terminal brew install openconnect Getting VPN IP's/DNS Endpoints from AnyConnect: The information is typically located in your profile xml files located here: /opt/cisco/anyconnect/profile/somethingsomething.xml In the xml file, you are looking for "<HostAddress>typicallyaDNSName.com</HostAddress>" entry. These are your VPN endpoints that you would need to pass to openconnect. Using
