Question ? Why does phpPhobos look so weird in IE ?  

 Many people are sending me notes that my site looks screwed when browsing on it using IE. Actually - the Internet Explorer is so buggy - that you have - as a web-site developer - to program around almost every new bug release of the Internet Explorer - so I decided to just skip it. All other browsers I am testing my site with - work flawlessly - as they at least respect the basics of HTML and CSS Programming!

The best bet is to at least set your screen resolution to 1280x1024 - this is what this site has been optimized for.

Remember - to have a secure site - you need to be able to read the code !
Adding exception for every IE Bug would make it unreadable.

Note - that seeing backgrounds of strange colors on the pictures is due to the fact that IE6 is not able to show transparent PNG files. Send a Mail to microsoft for that.

Note: Many people are telling that they can not log into my site with internet Explorer using the secured https mode. For your information - this website requires a Key Exchange using normal Diffie-Hellman, and an encryption level higher 128bit. It seems many Internet Explorer Versions can only handle 128bit - and not more. Hence - you will be locked out.
Why I do this ? If the limit imposed is set to 128bit - then secret services have more problems to decrypt higher encryption levels. This is what I call - Privacy !

Question ? For a website that talks about security you have an invalid security certificate !  

 The certificate itself is valid. The Certification Authority actually is one I have created myself - so my own certification authority. What is more secure than the key's you have signed yourself ? Even a third party certification authority would not provide me that level of sdecurity.

And the most secure Certificate is actually the one you sign yourself, of course with High-Bit encryption. Check the certificate Details and the CA Details. You'll notice that the same person issued them on this site.

Main reason is I also choosed to sign my key's myself is that for some path's I require a valid client-side certificate - signed by the same CA the WebServer is signed. So - I don't really have a choice. A Verisign Certificate for 1 Server and 1 Client would cost me more than 3000 US$ ... That's defenitly too much for a Hobby.

Note that several Signing authorities have been compromised in the past to start phishing attacks. I had the choice to buy a Cheap Certificate Signing, or do it myself.

Question ? What formatting capabilities does the local submit interface provide ?  

 Check the attached file for more details.
Usually you'll see the content everytime you use an Edit Interface on this site.

Question ? Can we download a copy of phpPhobos ?  

 A release will be made available when it's ready.
Check the TODO list in the documentation section - and you'll see that a lot is still missing.

Question ? mp3 streamer - Discontinued  

 The mp3streamer is a very old code and was meant to be used internally (LAN) only. As it has seen no code submission over 10 years, the code has been removed from any system. Please find an alternative on the Internet... There are many.
Please remove any link you may have found.

Question ? 3dpixmaps - discontinued  

 The 3dpixmaps icon collection was put together back in 1998 to use on the Desktop of the Technical University in Berlin. It was later used by the SuSe distribution in conjunction with the fvwm Window Manager.
As that is a very long time, and the internet has developed quite many new icon-sets, this package can now retire.
Please remove any links you may find.
