.local is out! (Domains, certificates, SSL, etc)

Posted by on 21. J 2013 in Blog

I have  aproblem which I’ll discuss in another blog-post, but first – here’s a discovery that I’d like to share! .local domain names and certificates are a big no-no from now on, without an internal PKI-infrastructure! I’ve stumpled across a very interesting SSL-discovery. From 2015 .local-domain names are out. You cannot get an ssl-certificate with a .local-name from a public CA when 2015 hits us. And so far, it seems that some companies are...

Posted by on 21. J 2013 in Blog

So, I’ve been dealing with a weird problem with Exchange 2013.

Android – no thanks

Posted by on 09. J 2012 in Blog

HTC Desire S / Android So, where to begin. Well, basically I’ve been using an Android-based device, the HTC Desire S, for around 2 months now. I decided to write my own personal experience with it. I’ve been using it out of the box – no tinkering with custom roms or special settings the first month. I’ve setup my e-mail/contacts/calendar-synchronisation (ActiveSync/Exchange) and installed very few apps, which shall not be named cause then I might be...
