16 Dec 2015 : Let's not Encrypt just yet #
The TLS certificate for Constantia, my home server, ran out this evening. I've been using StartSSL for my certificate for several years now, and given their free automated service I've been very pleased. The downside is you can only generate one certificate at a time, so if you screw it up, there's not much that can be done (apart from ponying up). That always made me nervous as I've been known to screw things up in the past.

With the new Let's Encrypt service I was tempted to try that, but the certificates need renewing every 90 days, so I stuck to what I know. It seems I'm getting better at it though: the new certificate appears to have worked without a hitch.
