Noticed the following tweet the other day:
Thought this would be a perfect time to switch my website to HTTPS only. Previously I have played around with using my own CA, trusting this CA on any computer I use, and then I can generate my own certificates as and when I feel like it. This is generally alright for personal use, but for public use there is little benefit doing this rather than just using self signed certs.
I found letsencrypt fairly easy to use, the only problem was I had to bring Apache down for a few minutes while I requested a cert – this is a minor thing, but I do host a few other websites on the same VPS I use for my website, so something to bear in mind. The expiry time seems pretty short too, only extending 3 months into the future by default.
Anyway, it beats paying for a cert 🙂
Haven’t seen too many April Fools today – Google have ‘Google Nose‘, but I couldn’t see any good ones on BBC News or anything – they normally have something. Perhaps with it being the Easter holidays, no-one is in work to make them up!
Looking through the BBC News website there is an article on ‘Real’ stories that appear to be pranks – BBC News – April Fools Day: 10 stores that look like pranks but aren’t.
Hope everyone has a good couple of days off – I think we’re spending today trying to clean/tidy parts of the house that are a little neglected, i.e. the office/study upstairs, which seems to gather all the junk that used to collect in my room at my parents house…
Don’t want to go too far with having the pup, and he’s still not had his second set of jabs, so he can’t really leave the house, other than the garden for weewees! Can’t wait until we can get him out of the house for walkies 🙂
God, when will these people realise that they’re living in the past, and need to move into 2013?!

Gorgeous day, but really cold!!
The house is freezing!! Don’t really want to put the heat on now though, it’s a bit late!
So glad to have a wee long weekend 🙂 think this is the first I’ve been off since Christmas, well for anything more than one day!
Get to spend some time with the wife and the pup 🙂
Was flicking through the news as normal at lunch, and came across the name PC Mark Milton, the name rang a bell, and after having a quick look I found the previous news article…
Strange how he was described as the ‘creme de la creme’ in the past, and was extremely lucky to avoid a ban (IMO), but he still seems to be have complete disregard for safety…
Edited to add
I don’t think any of the news places have picked up that this is actually the same bloke…
