 WSE on Windows Server 2003 

Can't get one of my solutions to work on a Windows Server 2003 based server. Client works fine, but server side X509-based decryption fails with an error that should not happen (Cannot find the certificate and private key for decrtyption).

Everything installed and correctly setup. Even permissions. :)

Since even the official Microsoft newsgroup didn't help, I'm really stuck. The funny thing is, that if I disallow access to private key and/or remove the certificate, error message changes giving me a clue that WSE looks at the cert unsuccessfully.

 Motorola MPX200 

This is what was bugging me when I was at the PDC. Since I wasn't able to bring it home, I wrote some emails asking about the local availability.

It turns out that the new Motorola SmartPhone will be available in Slovenia in about two weeks. EUR 700, with no plans for any operator chipping in.

 The sum of all fears 

It happened. My laptop died on me and thankfully it wasn't a hardware failure, but my self assurance in knowing everything about the drivers I installed. A few months ago I turned off the Restore feature of XP, gaining a few hundred megabytes via deleted restore points. Well, it was a mistake done once, and it hurt a lot.

I needed to reinstall it completely and it took me two days to tweak everything back. I'm running the divine Windows Server 2003 now.

During the reinstall phase I played with the thought of dumping VMWare 4 and installing the new Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (I'm currently using 8 VMs, not concurrently). I managed to read through the official newsgroup and found a lot of problems regarding Linux installations, so I decided to give it a little time. Being a Microsoft oriented person, I like to follow the other platform too. When the time comes, I'll change the setup to be run from my main server, and not locally on my laptop. It seems to me, that there are only a few places without internet access around anyhow.

 VRoots Changed 

Since I went through a main server reinstall I also moved my sub-sites to new domain names. Lupus is now listening on and my little playground page is located on

Redirects from and are not available and will probably never be. If anyone has a permanent endpoint on RSS Query web service, she will know soon. ;)
