Tried to configure apache HTTPS today. Was a bit of pain. The problem was with the certificates being stored in conf/ssl.crt. My customized certificate was overwritten as I mistakenly did a make in the same dir reading some article on the web. It used to overwrite the thing with a default dummy certificate. Clients hated it :)

Long time that I am here. Well, lots and lots has changed. I have switched jobs. Am now working for Kernel Solutions Pvt Ltd, a baby startup in storage located at Pune, India. The job is pretty exciting. Your thinking power improves. You are made to think and take decisions. More challenging and life-consuming than working in big companies ... just something that I wanted to experience. In continuance with my earlier studies, its time for me to get down to something substantial. Want to read up SMP/NUMA even thought I am child in it now.
