Today’s M3talinks for Jul 28th

  • Using Keytool to Import SSL Certificates into Sun JDK – TalkingTree.com – 've recently seen a little discussion on CFTalk about importing SSL certificates into the JVM keystore used by the JVM under ColdFusion MX in order to connect to SSL enabled resources, such as LDAP servers or Web Servers while using either the tags CFLDAP, CFHTTP, or CFINVOKE.

  • Article 1, Section 8, Clause 8: Thomas Jefferson to Isaac McPherson – It has been pretended by some, (and in England especially,) that inventors have a natural and exclusive right to their inventions, and not merely for their own lives, but inheritable to their heirs.

It is agreed by those who have seriously considered the subject, that no individual has, of natural right, a separate property in an acre of land, for instance. By an universal law, indeed, whatever, whether fixed or movable, belongs to all men equally and in common, is the property for the moment of him who occupies it, but when he relinquishes the occupation, the property goes with it. Stable ownership is the gift of social law, and is given late in the progress of society.

  • Dear Ubuntu: I Have Some Concerns – "Dear Ubuntu, for the last couple years life has been good. Every time I've shown you to a friend or family member, they've compared you to what they're familiar with–Windows XP or Vista, mostly–and by comparison you've looked brilliant. Yeah, your ugly brown color scheme was a bit off-putting at first, but once people saw how secure, simple, and reliable you were, the response was almost universally positive. But recently, things have changed …"<br />

    I’m a bit late with this, considering that 10.04 is out already, but it will be interesting how people have found 10.04 to stack up against 9.10.<br />
    <br />
    From Tanner Helland who previously wrote 10 Days of Ubuntu 10.10 Feature Requests, this is a Dear John-style letter about how the author is finding it difficult to love Ubuntu in the face of the severe problems with 9.10, and just how good Windows 7 is.
  • Do Blind People Use a Special Keyboard? – This is one of the most common question asked by sighted people when they meet or hear about blind computer users.
