Next week I will be starting as a software developer at Public Library of Science.
I spent more than 7 years at Xpiron. This is the longest time I spent at any company. I went through Xpiron’s ups and downs. Xpiron is now a stable company with solid number of customers and a promising future. It was a great experience.
This year is a year of change of me. A new job, a new flat and I am becoming a father in October !
Network Solutions switched it’s top level certificate authority from GTE to AddTrust.. That’s fine if your web application doesn’t use any applets. AddTrust is not included in Java certificate chain prior to Java 1.5. So, if your clients have old version of java installed, they will keep getting a security warning each time they invoke applet on your secure web page. It’s not documented anywhere on Net Solutions’ site.
I have a problem with PayPal. I have one shipping address in my profile but the confirmation email that is being sent to seller contains different address – my old address. Apparently in their database they keep several copies of address (poor design?) and when you change your address in profile change should be implemented in different places. Well, it didn’t happen to me. For some reason one of those copies still has my old address.
Everything looks ok in my profile. No trace of old address. But it’s there and it’s being sent to sellers. I found that out when one of my eBay purchases went to wrong place.
I haven’t gotten anything usefull from their customer support yet. They just keep sending me these generic instructions on how to modify my profile.
