    The Unannoying Faction would also comment out making $ComputerName mandatory, to make it easy to query the local computer.

          That may be because WinRM is not set up on your local machine to allow remote access. You can confirm this by trying:

          Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_ComputerSystem -ComputerName localhost

    one thing i thought was interesting was the computer serial duplication (thought that was an error πŸ™‚ ), so another thought was to connect to the win32_bios class and use that serial number. thanks for the solution example, i was struggling with what the code from the different factions might look like. Mind is a bit of a mixture.

      I thought the same thing, so I also queried the win32_bios class. I then wanted to try out a much slower solution, so I did Get-ComputerInfo since it contains the computer’s name, model, and serial number. This would have peeved the Flawless faction since I noticed that the call for the BIOS Serial Number has a typo (BIOSSeralNumber). Quite interesting.
