Facebook has recently cut the cord on being able to chat through its Android app (maybe iOS as well) forcing users to install and use their new messenger application. If you are like me and have found this new app to be bulky and slows your phone down there is an alternative!

Multiple SSL Websites Using One IP

On August 1, 2014 I setup a SSL certificate for my personal website - johnathonwilliams.me. In the past it was necessary to have a dedicated IP address for every site with an SSL certificate on your server. However with Apache2 this is no longer the case.

A Learner is not a Failure

Recently I have gone through a lot of life changes in many areas of my life.

I've done this many times with the database.table notation, however a table name with a dash (-) threw me off today.
