A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

revised Force SSL for every URL except one path using .htaccess
"I'm using a, b, and c" is fine. "I'm using a and b, and [other clause]" is fine. "I'm using a, b, and [other clause]" is painfully, painfully wrong. (That wasn't my main reason for editing, but it is the only edit which needs explanation.)

comment How to serve asp.net pages on linux using microsoft .net?
A quick glance at that website suggests it's for open source projects written in .NET, not that .NET itself is open source. Am I missing something?

revised Is it possible for a sub-directory to be on another server?
RFC 2606 domain names. Tidier grammar. Also, original had xyz.com in one place, and www.xyz.com in another. I made them both into example.com, as the intent seemed to be to have both the same.

revised How do I upgrade an end-of-life Ubuntu distribution?
Turned Markdown gated code block into indented code block, as gated code blocks don't work here. Also removed massive amounts of trailing spaces. Added information from comments.

comment DNS server not resolving github page properly after two days
Do you have an actual reason for obscuring your domain name? You might get quicker and better results if you include it. See also meta.serverfault.com/a/6063.
