Let's Encrypt Certificates for IIS
article #1257, updated 8 days ago

Just grab the latest code here:

https://github.com/PKISharp/win-acme/releases/latest

unpack it into a folder you will keep (I used “E:\Let’s Encrypt”), and run letsencrypt.exe in the folder. The multi-site (SAN) mode works only if IIS is set up in certain ways; but the manual mode for a single site is simple and easy, and it sets up a scheduled task in Windows for the needed automatic updates.

Set an HTML element to select completely on one click
article #1254, updated 19 days ago

Add this to the style of an element (P, H3, DIV, etc.):

-webkit-touch-callout: all; /* iOS Safari */
-webkit-user-select: all; /* Safari */
-khtml-user-select: all; /* Konqueror HTML */
-moz-user-select: all; /* Firefox */
-ms-user-select: all; /* Internet Explorer/Edge */
user-select: all; /* Chrome and Opera */

and if you click once on any part of the element, the whole thing is selected/highlighted, ready to be copied to clipboard. No JavaScript!

Mozilla Firefox 57 is marvellous
article #1128, updated 394 days ago

Very fast, resource-stingy, extremely reliable and compatible, feature-thorough, and not Googly. Highly recommended. Now JEB’s favorite browser. And it installs 64-bit or 32-bit according to platform, automatically if the install is new. If you’re running an older Firefox on a 64-bit operating system, remove it and install to get all of the upgrade, it’s worth it and then a lot.
