setting up ssl certificates for my node.js project has been a fascinating look into a part of security whose details i've never fully understood. it's been a long-slog challenge to create self-signed certificates for my windows development environment (the microsoft tools failed abysmally), and it's already taught me something useful for work. it drives me nuts that *i'm* the one who's going to update the forge project's documentation, though. it really shouldn't be this difficult to figure out how to use something so well made.
speaking of security, i find it unbelievably fortuitous that just this morning - while i was thinking about security - i came across http://readwrite.com/2015/07/01/medium-passwordless-system . reading this before implementing the various steps of locking down passwords? don't mind if i don't!
a lot of hours on the project, a few spent watching legit and agents of s.h.i.e.l.d.. the former improves quickly while the latter is excellent right until scorch is introduced.
