Free SSL certifcates and Trust

So, not very long ago I renewed the SSL certs for my website, I was happy with the changes that StartCom made to their free SSL certificate offering at the time. It turns out, however, that I should start looking at finding an alternative as StartCom are apparently being put on the naughty step. At least Let's Encrypt is up and running now. I'm also looking at changing my e-mail server, but more on that another time (maybe).

New Blog

So, I have a new Blog. I suspect I shall come to regret this decision, my colleagues will probably mock me horribly for this, but you cant have everything.

I've nearly set up a new blog several times in recent months, but have always held back. This is primarily because this would be my third, or possibly fourth, attempt at a blog. All of the others failed in the same basic way. I created the blog, I made an opening post introducing myself, and promising how I would keep it interesting, and then after a while (and no more posts) I killed it because an empty blogs are just crap.

I can't promise that this blog will be any different, I certainly don't promise that it will be of an interest to anyone but me.

Entries will largely be either rants, or stuff I want to share (I have a few projects in mind, but all in good time).

So once again, welcome to my blog.
