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. Solution: Get the Amazon Fire TV instead. It's only slightly more expensive, but doesn't suffer the problems the Fire Stick does.

Summary: Unable to connect to ESXi/vCenter server with Connect-VIserver cmdlet, get the following error: "The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception." Be sure to "Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -InvalidCertificateAction:Ignore" if you plan to connect to an ESXi/vCenter that does not have trusted certificate. Interestingly, something must've changed recently because the PowerCLI module actually would output a more descriptive message about setting your PowerCLIConfiguration. 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.
