Free SSL/TLS for everyone? Sounds to good to be true



Yes, if you are skeptical about this, so am I.

The project promises:

Anyone who has gone through the trouble of setting up a secure website knows what a hassle getting a certificate can be. Let’s Encrypt automates away all this pain and lets site operators turn on HTTPS with a single click or shell command.
When Let’s Encrypt launches in Summer 2015, enabling HTTPS for your site will be as easy as installing a small piece of certificate management software on the server:
$ sudo apt-get install lets-encrypt
$ lets-encrypt example.com
That’s all there is to it! https://example.com is immediately live.

Sounds too good to be true, right?
So let's wait until Summer 2015 and see what is left from it then. Don't get me wrong, this would be awesome and I'm all for it.
I really hope it works that way. For people without having a server on their own to maintain, this might not be a big thing.
Commercial server sites will continue to give out their own certificates for extra $$$. We will see how much impact this will have at last.

Gobliins on Android = big retro fun

Yeah the controls are not very good. But you know this game gave me laughing attacks in the past.
You can bring back the years 1991-1993 with this Android release including Gobliiins, Gobliiins 2 and Gobliiins 3.
It's officially available at the Google Play Store. Very cheap if you think about these were once full-price games.

DotEMU did the magic with ScummVM.

Up to researching for today's podcasts

Here we go again.
So much new Android stuff, no problem. But more common web & tech stuff this week, it looks pretty lame.
Is that true? Or am I just playing too much Battlefield 4 at the moment? :) When "Final Stand" comes out for BF4, it will like no news happen at all :)

Who knows. But this week will cost some time today, to find good news.

Twitter got junk rating

No, this is not an anti-Twitter post. Just wondering that Standard & Poor's gave Twitter a junk ratingThis could have a big influence on Twitter's stock market value.

Sure, from the money side of things it's understandable. Twitter tries to make money since its start, but failed on different approaches. But the platform is still relevant to a lot of organisations and people. I'm not sure if such an rating is helpful for anyone.

Played through Enigmatis 2

The mists of Ravenwood.


Great game for Android. Played the first part, too. Artifex Mundi has more games like these. They are really very nicely made. Like these kind of games.

Feel the urge to write a blog post about GTA V on PS4

Haven't blog on my main blog for a while now. So many things to do. But what I saw this morning, and the comments about it on YouTube screams for an article.
Stay tuned, I'm just about to do it. Link will follow.

Edit: And here it is...

Choose wisely...

Happy Election Day dear fellow Americans. Choose wisely. Maybe it is one of the most important elections for a long time.

So many important decisions have to be made in the upcoming 2 years. Not only for the US, but for the whole world. So be aware, that you have a lot of power with just one vote this time. And with power there comes responsibility.

Bath Chaos after water pipe burst

Oh my... on time for the podcasts, the news is, a water pipe burst in the bath is spreading chaos.
The whole tube had to be removed. Now the noise is floating through my rooms. I hope it will be quiet here soon or the podcasts will have a background noise like I'm broadcasting from a construction site.
AndConstruct or Ryo's Week in chisel.
