It seems that the impossible is happening and free SSL certificates are becoming commonplace. About time! If you've hosted sites before you will know how expensive an SSL certificate is, particularly for small sites like this one where there is no revenue.

Thankfully some big companies have joined in an initiative called Let's Encrypt, which does just that: provide you with a free, automatically generated security certificate that is acccepted by all major browsers.

Remember, during those first critical weeks where you are in probation, the company is in probation too. Just saying. Recuerda, durante esas primeras semánas críticas en que estás en periodo de prueba, la empresa también lo está. No, por nada.

I'm sure this actually exists as a skill in Linkedin. If not, we should start tagging people with it. Seguro que esto existe ya como un skill en Linkedin. Si no, deberíamos empezar a tagger a gente con ello.

Note, the characters represented in this strip are in no manner or form related to real persons, living or dead. Trust me.

By the way, I just wasted an hour of my life compiling ruby for Yosemite and trying to update this site, which was using Jekyll 0.10 (currently at 2.5). If you see anything broken please shout.
Nota, los personajes representados en esta tira no tienen relación alguna con personas reales, vivas o fallecidas. Créeme.

Por cierto, acabo de malgastar una hora de mi vida compilando ruby para Yosemite y actualizando esta web, que usaba Jekyll 0.10 (ahora van por la 2.55). Si ves algo roto por favor avisa.

I'm making a little game using Unity, a very simple word game that hopefully I'll soon publish for Android, iPhone and iPad.

Here's the thing, I'm not that good a designer but I don't have enough going on to justify hiring a proper one. Good news is, if you're in a similar situation there's hope for you.

It would be fair enough to say HR would be the ones doing a policy like this, but I find that lately the dreaded Agile proponents have managed to get themselves defining these things. And just to be clear, I'm a big fan of what Agile / XP used to mean, not so much of all this lets-turn-it-into-another-process of late. Alguien podría decir que RRHH serían los que definirían políticas como ésta, pero encuentro que últimamente los temidos proponentes del Agile han conseguido colocarse a definir estas cosas. Por si no queda claro, estoy más que a favor de lo que Agile / XP significaba al principio, pero no tanto de esto de vamos-a-convertirlo-en-otro-proceso que se lleva últimamente.

To be honest I think google is stuffing way more in our mouths than that, but today we are here to talk about Apple. La verdad es que creo que google nos está enchufando mucho más que eso, pero hoy estamos aquí para hablar de Apple.

I'll just say that the probability of this happening to a monkey re-converted into CEO is higher than I feel comfortable admitting. Responses to the Mozilla fiasco are quite revealing. Sólo diré que la probabilidad de que esto pase con un mono convertido a CEO es más alta de lo que me gusta aceptar. Y a las reacciones al fiasco de Mozilla me remito.
