When I was visiting a friend’s webblog some days ago I realized he was using a valid ssl certificate. My first thought was: How did he get the cert, I want one for my site!

With that in mind I searched the web to get some more information about certificates for free. The solution is you can get class 1 ssl certs validated for one year for private use. It allows you to secure the root domain and one subdomain of your choise.
I want to show you how easy it is to get one of these from StartSSL and how you set up apache to secure the communication with your site.

It’s now been a while since I installed the 3.1.0-1 kernel from sid and made some testing. But I don’t like the LED beeing solid green during boot, I want to see whats going on. Thats why I decided to compile 3.1.10 with heartbeat from this erlier article: Dockstar: new Kernel 2.6.38 ready to use. The config is based on sid’s 3.1.0-1, if you want to take a look at it, you will find it here: config-3.1.10-dockstar-shyd_1.2
It supports several devices like wifi, webcam, audio or dvb.

Some of you might ask why I didn’t build 3.2.1. I did, but it wouldn’t boot.

It would let you answer someones questions without waiting for my...

Have you ever heard of google cloud print? It allows you to add your printers to the cloud and share them. You can print on them from any device supporting this service, even if you are on another network. This sounds pretty cool, I gave it a try and I am really amazed.

None of my printers doesn’t support cloud print directly, so I need a google chrome installation to share the printer. But I don’t want to have my computer to run when printing remotely. There is a project called Google CloudPrint on Linux which allows you to use this nice service from the command line. At this point the dockstar or the linkstation joines the game.
