Firefox or IE

I have for a very long time used Firefox, because Firefox has had tabs which i like very much instead of having 6 or 7 windows open. I also hate all these adds and have use adblock to get rid of them. I also used an add on called IE tab, where i can run websites that needs IE, like Outlook web access.

I recently found an add on to IE where I can block ads, and as we know, from IE 7 you can also browse in tabs. Check out IE7Pro

So now i don't know what broswer i should use, it's looking though i'm going to use IE at work for all systems that rely on IE, and thats alot of systems.

At home I'm still going to use Firefox. I like the browser and i'm used to it now.

Devils win both games this weekend

The Devils beat Tampa bay on friday and Toronto on saturday. Both games ended 2-1 with overtime in the Tampa game.

It ws fun to se Parise get nasty with Boyle. It was the first fight for Parise in NHL.
Elias had a big game friday night with a goal and assist.
Paul Martin sat out again, let's hope he will be back soon.

Saturdays game against Toronto, we just got lucky bounces. Toronto hit the post 3 times during the first period, so we should be very happy with this win.

Parise scored the winning goal just under a minute to go in the game.

We have now 3 straight wins and lte's hope the streak continue on tuesday against Montreal.

Devils continue to led the eastern conference 1 point ahead of Montreal and Pittsburgh.

Here arfe some highlights from the games:

New inventory software

Today I've tested a new inventory system at a customer.
They didn't want to spend any money on this system (thank you open source projects).

So after a a few minutes I installed a software called spiceworks.

I't work fine, and it got what we needed.

Let me know if you have any inventory system that you want to recommend

Create a self signed certificate

During this week I've created a couple of certificates for our webserver.
We have both IIS and apache servers for different systems and their requirements.

If you need a certificate in IIS and don't want to pay a signed certificate from, say Verisign.
All you need to do is to install selfssl from the IIS resource kit on the server where you have IIS.
then you just run the following command to create a simple certificate:
selfssl.exe / /K:1024 /V:365 /S:1 /P:443
You should change the CN name to match with your website or URL.
/K is the key size, /V is how long it's valid, /S is the site number /P is the port

If you want more info on this run selfssl.exe /?

If you need to create a certificate with apache, just install openssl and run the following commands.

openssl genrsa -out ca.key 1024
this creates a private key in ca.key

openssl req -new -key ca.key -out ca.csr
This creates a CSR file named ca.csr using the ca.key key file. You can submit this file to certification authorty, like Verisign. They will use this file to create a certificate for you.
You will be asked several questions here, and make sure that Common Name match your website.

Next command will create a self-signed certificate that you can use on your apache webserver.
openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in ca.csr -signkey ca.key -out ca.crt

If you're using apache on windows you should run the following command and use the new key created.
openssl rsa -in ca.key -out ca2.key

Otherwise you get the following message in the apache error log and can't start the apache service: SSLPassPhraseDialog builtin is not supported on Win32.

Good luck

Devils losing streak

The Devils lost saturday night for the third straight game.
Right now their are not creating much of offense.
They have scored 2 goals in that span, and you should thank Brodeur that we even had a chance in these games.

I really don't know why coming to this kind of streaks, I'ts not the first time.....

On saturday against Montreal Martin, Greene, Vishneski was healthy scratches.
I can agree that Greene and Vishnevski should be scratched, but Martin, no no no.....

I think that Martin should be paried with Oduya, they have proven to be a steady definsive pair. The same goes for White and Mottau.
Now the hard part is where Salvador fits, maybe he should play with Martin.

I think Greene is still to soft, remember last game against Carolina, and Vishnevski is making to many misstakes.

I don't know, just start winning.......
