Your website is up.
You’re getting visitors.
Things are looking up.
But is your site secure, or are your visitors getting a lovely “Not Secure” message when they visit your site? (Google Chrome pushed an update on July 24, 2018 to show this message on any site that doesn’t have an SSL certificate.)
In this day and age, you NEED an SSL certificate
(that nice green padlock) on your website.
Whether you’re a small blog, or an online store taking credit card payments or ACH banking information, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificates are critical, and even better, are being issued for FREE. That’s right — free. A few short years ago, you’d have to pay upwards of several hundred dollars per year JUST for an SSL certificate (and you still can), but with a service like Let’s Encrypt, you can get that security without the annual cost. Your site is secure, your visitors feel warm and fuzzy, and you don’t have to pay anything extra? Sounds like a win/win to me!
How can you test your site?
There’s a quick, easy, and free way to test your site for security – head over to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ and enter your domain name (I recommend you check the “do not show the results on the boards” checkbox).
We strive for perfection without sacrificing performance and usability. In an effort of pure transparency, here’s the results of our website (you can see them yourself here: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=tbare.com&hideResults=on):

I recently ran into an issue where I would plug my phone into my laptop, and each time it would ask if I wanted to trust the computer. I’d click trust, try to get into iTunes, and it still wouldn’t find my phone. So I’d unplug and re-plug in my phone, and lo and behold, it would ask if I wanted to trust my computer again… and again… and again.
Rebooting didn’t help. Updating iTunes didn’t help. So went out to find a solution.
Remember, remember, elections in November. Liberty topics are hot.
I see no reason why ANYONE’S treason should ever be forgot.
‘ve got a few sites where the client has requested that main menu items that have sub-menu items not be clickable, but just be a placeholder for the sub menu items themselves.
This comes in handy, specifically, when you have drop down menus (using SuperFish, for example) — Safari on iOS handles SuperFish pretty well – the first tap drops down the menu, and the second tap will actually take you to that page, but what if you don’t want the first level to take you anywhere?
The following error(s) occurred while saving changes:
Set-Mailbox Failed Error:
Couldn’t find object “domain.local/OU/username”. Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object. Reason: The recipient domain.local/OU/username isn’t the expected type.
Copy is a Barracuda company that is competing against DropBox, Google Drive, Box, etc, and is doing a fine job at it. They offer 15 GB of free storage to start, and (at the time of writing) give a bonus 5 GB of storage to both the referrer and the person referred if you sign up from someone else — that’s 20 GB of storage to start!
…so why is it that September is the 9th month, October the 10th, and December the 12th?
So, I reddit (as many people do), and came across this very interesting photograph…

If you’re like most website developers, you probably do most of your development on a subdomain (ie dev.domain.com) as opposed to the live site.
Welll, this is all fine and dandy until you need to move your nice, new WordPress site from dev.domain.com to www.domain.com — all of your images, links, site name, site domain, etc all have links tied to the dev URI.
Passwords are like underwear: they should be changed often, not left in the open, and not shared with anyone…
So, need a quick, random password?
