Can't win for losing. I was starting to work on my OpenID code the other day, and guess what...? My certificate vendor, ipsCA, dropped the ball on getting their new root certs included in Firefox and Safari, among others. It could take up to a year, even if they answer the questions asked of them by Mozilla three months ago. The reason I went with them in the first place, besides that they're way less expensive than most, is that their previous root cert was recognized way back in Firefox 1.-something, which was what I was using in DSL on my USB key.

So anyway, it doesn't stop me from working on my code, and I can add an exception to my browser or import their new root cert... but it's just another impediment to the launch of my website. As if, with my mental lethargy, I needed any more inertia to overcome.
