I've got that one. It "works" for values of allows you into the
page after asking you every stinking fucking time.
(well, I'm pretty sure I got that one, since I switched back to
OSX after running linux on that box for 4 months. The support
for linux on PPC was a lot weaker than Intel).
We actually have 2 self signed servers at work, which is fine
since their just for employees.
Of course one of them is the Webmail swerver for sExChange, and
the NT admin who reboots it just slapped the new self-signed
cert on there w/out removing the (expired) old certificate, so
both Outlook and Safari on the Mac get confused by it and refuse
OSX will be a nice operating system when they finally get around
to releasing a browser that works properly and securely.
Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits
is, of course, in a state of sin.
