Power calculations is exactly why my latest home-built router uses an low-power mother board with an Atom CPU rather than something more power hungry.

The Bill of Rights trumps all other laws and regulations, period.

Yes. My dovecot server is configured with a Class 1 from STARTSSL and Gmail is happy with it. You just have to remember to use the "Server Certificate Bundle with CRLs" provided by STARTSSL in the ssl_ca option so that the chain to CA is complete.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
