I’ve had SSL available on my site for some time using startssl, but as the certificate was expiring and requires manual renewal, I though it was time to try out letsencrypt. I’m a huge fan of the idea of letsencrypt, which is trying to bring free SSL encryption to the whole of the internet, in particular all the smaller sites who might not have the expertise to roll out SSL or where a cost might be restrictive.
There are a lot of scripts for powering letsencrypt, but getssl looked the best fit for my use case as I just wanted a simple script to generate certificates, not manage apache configs or anything else. It seems to do a pretty good job so far. I swapped over the certificates to the newly generated ones and it seems pretty smooth sailing.

On this historic day of the #brexit result, my thoughts are with Britain’s MEPs who have worked tirelessly in our country’s interest within Europe, and who must now feel like the vote is a kick in the teeth.
