Bower calls blocked by corporate proxy

if you are behind a corporate proxy, you might have difficulties installing or restoring Bower packages. You will get a message UNABLE_TO_VERIFY_LEAF_SIGNATURE or some thing slimier to this complaining about certificate. easy fix to set the  “strict-ssl”: false in your .bowerrc file. File looks like below.

that is it, worse case you might have to restart Visual Studio.
