Downloading a file from github enterprise (authenticated/ssl) on Windows using Powershell

I need to download a script from github but I don't have git on the windows machines, on Linux I just used curl -u, for windows it needed more than a one liner.
Here's what I came up with, we have self signed certs so I need to fool System.Net into thinking all certs are good, that's a one liner:

[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::ServerCertificateValidationCallback = {$true}

Rifftrax for the Matrix using sharecrow matrix.crow

A couple of friends and I decided to try out rifftrax. We decided on the Matrix as our first film. Rifftrax.com is a great idea, finally the MST3k style can be applied to movies too popular or expensive to otherwise make fun of. We eventually enjoyed the riff, but syncing wasn't as simple as we had hoped. We initally just opened up two vlc windows and manually synced that way. One great line was in the dojo, Morpheus: "You think that's air you're breathing?" Riff: "Little baby thinks he's breathing air little baby air breather" I enclose my crow file, I hope it works for someone.
