Port 80 software shows that choosing webserver software can go like any other technical choice in a big corporation: I heard from some guy on the golf-course... Their measurement of 'real' webserver software popularity is by checking the servers of the US fortune 1000. A nice example (to me) of I heard it on the golf-course style of decision making if you follow this. And by the way: all the stuff they sell for IIS is available for Apache for free. Just without the warm fuzzy feeling of having expensive software.

Easter monday activity: building and painting a birdhouse. We (Mirjam and I) got a kit for one as a present last September and finally found the time to put it together. Birds won't like it for this spring, but maybe they can get used to it for next year.

Page restyling has hit my homepage as you see. It may look mostly the same, but the change in source is big. I moved stuff around too, and added the google searchbox to help you find stuff I (re)moved the links for. The interesting part was to build the stylesheet parts to create the page columns without resorting to using tables. Next big restyling project is The Virtual Bookcase where almost all pages are still bad html 3.2.

A teacher asked for a directory on https://wwwsec.cs.uu.nl/ to be limited to a specific client certificate. Configuring this exact limitation turned out to be quite some searching as I couldn't find it in the modssl documentation (the site being down a lot of the time this week didn't help either). The correct way to write that you want to limit to a certain subject DN turns out to be: %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN} eq "/C=NL/ST=Utrecht/L=Utrecht/O=Universiteit Utrecht/... "

"A Swiss hygiene inspector calls" .. great reading. Makes cleaning up a rented apartment for holidays sound like a piece of cake. Oh, and (time_t) 1111111111 has passed.

Found a manual How to destroy the earth. This won't happen as easy (or fast) as some of the enviromentalists want us to think. Via Schneier on Security blog.

Meer eighties flashbacks, Tom Schuring mailde me naar aanleiding mijn vorige opmerking dat hij een complete site heeft over The Legendary Curry & van Inkel show .. met mp3s van uitzendingen.

Adam Curry on the "radio", but this time in mp3 format (podcast). It's funny to hear him again in the free format of a podcast, after hearing him on Curry en van Inkel in the eighties. Today's podcast is fun to hear because of some technical problems with a new setup.
