Auto-update PowerShell and nag-free

If you are like me and get annoyed with the big PowerShell upgrade ‘nag’ ‘reminder’ (see screenshot below); instead of trying to figure out what to download and install the update, there is a simpler way to get the latest update and address the nag. 🙂

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
