Using Let's Encrypt for SSL.

Published Date May 28, 2019 9:52:51 AM

The server required a new Linux kernel (instead of the old 4.14.12, we're now running on 4.19.44) for security reasons. I also upgraded all software packages and made a new backup and all that.

Just regular maintenance.

The server is back up.

High regards,

P.S. for anyone who is interested, the security reasons mentioned above is with regards to weaknesses in Intel processors nicknamed ZombieLoad, RIDL and Fallout and you can find something about it at https://cpu.fail.

Updated SSL Certificate
Published Date Apr 9, 2019 5:39:13 PM

Sorry for the scare, people. The SSL certificate had expired, and I had forgotten to update it in time.The SSL Certificate of Let's Encrypt has now been renewed for another three months.

It's scheduled to expire on 8th of July 2019. You can check with the little "lock" icon in your browser address bar.

Hence also the little period the server was down, had to install it.

Release notes - version 2.0.0
Published Date Jan 27, 2019 11:05:00 PM

Well, we've been running the current version for a while, and I promised myself to put something like release notes out there, on what has changed.

This of course doesn't even come close to what real Release Notes are, but it's a start.

This can be seen more like an initial statement, and the follow up release notes will contain more information on what's changed and what's new.

High regards,

The new website is live!
Published Date Jan 21, 2019 12:58:47 AM

The new website is totally live.

I am sure there are things that do not work as I would like to, and I hope you can let me know as soon as possible.

One of the main issues I am having myself, is that I cannot log on, unless I use PRIVATE BROWSING.

So, if anyone is unable to log on, try starting a private browsing session.

High regards,
