Switching your WordPress site to SSL

Https for your domain makes sense these days for a bunch of reasons; You offer an encrypted link connection to your visitors which provides security. It’s not very expensive either. You can get affordable certificates via NameCheap (A popular hosting provider).

The ultimate development environment for Mac OS X

Updated: December 26, 2018

I’ve pieced together what I think is the ultimate development setup. This tutorial is particularly useful if you’re working in different places and have to rely on public wifi or if you don’t have high speed internet available.

Stop calling me from India or Pakistan

That’s right – In fact, don’t call me at all. If you’re not Dutch and don’t have a question related to the use of products and/or services I’m not interested.

Even more so, don’t call me on my private cell OR on a phone that is not operated by AJdG Solutions. AJdG Solutions has no phone. And that’s for a reason.

I’m sick and tired of people calling me from New Delphi, or where-ever the hell they are, with advertising opportunities or bullshit about me needing mobile apps. I’m not interested in your skills as a developer and I don’t care that you only cost $10/hr. I also don’t give a rats ass about your call center and I don’t need a online secretary either. Go away! Stay away!
