Renewing LetsEncrypt SSL certificates automatically with NginX
Fri, Dec 9th 2016 4:06p   Darren Duke
A while back I blogged that I switched the SSL on this blog to Let's Encypt, the free SSL provider. I even linked to the Crontab post I used to renew the SSL certificate (they are only good for 90 days, so need to be renewed regularly). Except mine would not renew. Hum.... I eventually got around to looking at this before the certificate ran out on Dec 20th and it turns out I needed to do a few more steps. If you manually run the renew.sh on the server without these additional steps thi

A long time ago, before IBM came down like a hammer, there was a podcast. We really enjoyed doing This Week In Lotus, but it became a bit untenable as IBM threatened all kinds of stuff (including revoking *my* Champion status.....) so we stopped. But IBM kept doing "WTF?" kinds of things.....canceling 9.0.2, going to fix packs only, spreading Java 8 out over a year (from now). After getting together at MWLUG, Stuart and I started to reminisce and we started thinking about saddling up again.

Switched to Let’s Encrypt for the blog SSL certificate
Wed, Sep 21st 2016 12:25p   Darren Duke
I had switched the blog to SSL a while back (mainly due to Google threatening that non-SSL website will take a hit in searches). At the time Let's Encrypt (the free, yes free, CA SSL issuer) was just getting started and didn't have roots published to most of the browser root stores. Because of this I went with free certificate available from Start SSL. I'm not disappointed with StartSSL, it's just time to try something else when the StartSSL certificate expired. In fact if you need anything

iNotes and IE Standards mode now seems to work in 9.0.1 FP7
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 10:28a   Darren Duke
I had praised, then lamented the new-ish iNotes forms templates that allow you do copy and paste images from the clipboard into IE. Well, with FP7 IBM (so far) seem to have addressed the issue search issue that forced me to disable this again. It's now back on for my servers. Let's see how long before I lament this again. It is probably work pointing out that Ulrich Krause is reporting issues with the "normal" iNotes forms9.nsf shipped in FP7. I have not seen the issue he reported in t

9.0.1 FP7 and how to enable the new port encryption settings
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 4:59a   Darren Duke
9.0.1 FP7 has shipped. It's not all we hoped (only three new features, and no Java 8) but yet again the Domino security team has added stuff, this time the oft requested update to Notes client port encryption. But (at the time of writing) all the technotes on how to enable this either go to the wrong page (ICCA) or a nice looking, but still pointless 404 page. So how do you enable this? We'll after scouring the design partner forum I found a post from the lovely Dave Kern that outlined thi

Hawthrorn 2.0, AKA IBM Mail Support for Microsoft Outlook, AKA IMSMO has recently been released. One of the main install differences between GA (2.0) and LA (1.0) code is that GA requires use of IBM DB2 as a state store for the IMSMO Domino server (whereas 1.0 had no such requirement). Most organizations can count on the fingers of no hands how may DB2 servers they have, so you'd expect IBM to support MS SQL server right? You'd be wrong. You along with me are a moron, and no one's ever ask

There is no 9.0.2. Dead. Canceled. Killed.
Wed, Aug 24th 2016 3:26p   Darren Duke
Originally 9.0.2 was scheduled for release in late 2015. Then February 2016 (this would have been 28 months since 9.0.1 shipped) Then 2H 2016. Then 2017. Now, well, never (if the scuttlebutt at MWLUG is to be believed, and I do believe it). It was pushed for many reasons, notably to get Verse out of the door. As I mentioned in this post (9.0.2 where for art thou?) and this one (my customers don't want mail next) I've ranted and raved about this before. To no avail. Well,

Unable to view embedded SlideShare presentations in Chrome? Try this.....

The first page of the presentation displays fine, but you can't navigate to any other slide or use any other actions (like the image below): The fix it is to allow 3rd party cookies from SlideShare.net. You can do this in the Chrome settings page, like this: Then, manage exceptions: Add the following to the hostname pattern: [*.]slideshare.net Like this: You can now navigate embedded SlideShare presentations.
