What hasn’t been cool is the destruction of expensive things that occur when Monty’s has one of his moments. The 42 inch TV donated by Melissa’s church has a plexiglas shield in front of it, and the last two computers we’ve placed in Monty’s home were destroyed as well. The first computer we placed was a fairly powerful quad core desktop with a 22 inch monitor and built-in speakers. Monty broke his left foot trying to pick the computer up and smash it onto the floor.

Many people have decided to implement Let's Encrypt into their production sites. I find this still a very bad idea to be done without being very (but really very) careful. Let's Encrypt brings you freedom but also limits you in using the certificate with SHA-256 RSA Encryption. Support for SHA-2 has improved over the last few years. Most browsers, platforms, mail clients and mobile devices already support SHA-2. However, some older operating systems such as Windows XP pre-SP3 do not support SHA-2 encryption. Many organizations will be able to convert to SHA-2 without running into user experience issues, and many may want to encourage users running older, less secure systems to upgrade. In this tutorial, we are going to deal with this incompatibility in a simple, but still nasty way.
