  1. CES isn't just about telling you what to buy, it's also about telling you what you're going to be buying. You know hat 802.11n router you just got for Christmas? You probably don't want to say this too loud around it, but Buffalo Technologies wants it to be obsolete by this time next year. The company is showing a preliminary version of its upcoming AirStation WZR-1750H wireless router using the not-yet-final 802.11ac wireless networking standard.

  5. It did look like one of the external resources (like OP saw) wasn't loading correctly. It seems to be fine today. I'm not sure why those particular browser/OS combinations would block rendering just to wait on something like that.
  6. The Intel SSD 320 is the much anticipated follow-up to the Intel X25-M, easily the most popular consumer SSD to date. The SSD 320 (commonly referred to as the X25-M 3rd Generation) is a mainstream SSD, letting the big brother SSD 510 go after the enthusiast space. Mainstream doesn't mean boring though, the SSD 320 posts quoted sequential read speeds of 270MB/s and writes of 220MB/s, which is still quite respectable. And while the SSD 320 is more of an evolution of the X25-M, there's still a lot that's new, like Intel 25nm NAND and capacities up to 600GB, a first for consumer SSDs. Read full story

  8. Yeah, it's probably best not to mess with any certificates that already exist. I think the directions provided on the hmailserver site (first link) are probably your best bet. Also, unless you want to purchase a certificate, you probably just want to self-sign one. Basically, it looks like you need to download OpenSSL ( to generate the certificate. I've never used it to create a certificate, so I can't help you there. However, once you've created the cert, it sounds like the steps are pretty straightforward to add the certificate to hmailserver using it's admin interface.
  9. Hmm, I've never heard of hmailserver, so did some quick reading. It does sound like there are several ways to get SSL up and running. You can probably create your own certificate, but I did find a page where they used the existing SSL cert that was installed on IIS already with some wrangling. Also, you should be able to use the certificate service without problem (although, I'm not 100% sure). Here are a few links:
