More Website Work

I'm giving Catallaxy Services a little bit of TLC lately, and I like some of the things I've done so far. The first thing I've done is emphasize our status as an independent software vendor.  I will gladly take people's money to write consulting documents for them or to do contract work, but I'll also gladly…

Forcing Lower-Case URLs In Apache

I've been working on a few tweaks to Catallaxy Services and one of the things I wanted to update was URLs.  In the UNIX world, URLs are be case-sensitive, so /Page1.html is totally different from /page1.html.  In my case, I had some presentations which had capital letters, but a person typing might enter lower-case letters and get…

Stop the QB carousel, I want to get off

So, as you may know, Johnny Football is hurt and Hoyer got back in the game. He is doing reasonably well. Since this is happening in Cleveland, naturally, everybody says Johnny is a bust since we all know that 7 quarters of football is enough to tell you whether a QB is good or not. Mary…

Is Buster Olney stupid or brilliant?

I have failed you, those who count on me for Hall of Fame coverage. I have missed that two writers have already claimed they are abstaining from the process. First up, Buster Olney: To repeat: I think Mussina, Schilling and Raines and others are Hall of Famers, but it's better for their candidacy if I…

More On Free SSL Certs

Earlier this week, I blogged about Let's Encrypt, a new, free certificate authority.  Let's Encrypt looks like a great service, but it's not out yet and I'm not sure if it will be generally applicable.  For example, if I want to host my website on Azure, I might not be able to use this service…
