I'm in the weird position of being halfway through a psych/programming/IT degree meant to train me as a user interface expert. I'm taking a year off to work. I want to learn more about networks, networking, and network security. I want to learn more about computer security in general, best practices to follow. I want to eventually get a non-glamorous job in tech support or similar to pay the bills until I work my way up. Are any of the current computer/tech/IT certifications worth pursuing? [more inside]

I'm starting a photography website where privacy and security are important features, and would like to offer SSL encryption to my users, so I'm going to buy a SSL certificate. Where should I get it from and which type should I get? [more inside]

My SO has a degree in IT and Computing but he has not been working for 2.5 years (combination of travel, language studying, and personal things). He has recently started job hunting but feels he is lacking in the certification department. Most jobs near us seem to want Oracle certification. Is it worth doing an Oracle course? Or is there something else (perhaps something up-and-coming) that he should look into? With a gap on his CV he is worried he is unemployable. [more inside]

I Have no https access. i have done all obvious things. I have run virus scans, cleaner, system restore and all procedures recommends by Microsoft to no avail. problem is.on both IE and Firefox so not a browser issue. I spent two hours with tech.support. nothing. I can bypass and access through some proxy servers. have run checkdisc etc. There was no change made to my hardware or new software but it did happen just after Windowsupdates were installed. I do not have a windows disk. I am using Vista. Excuse my mistakes, I am typing on my phone. any suggestions? I am thinking it has something to do with SSL Certificates.

I have a PC running Firefox 6 as of yesterday. When I try to go to www.chase.com I get the following message:
An error occurred during a connection to www.chase.com.
Peer's Certificate has been revoked.
(Error code: sec_error_revoked_certificate)
Googling is not helping perhaps because I am not familiar enough with certificates and how they work. Any ideas on how to use the site without turning off certificates? Is it important to keep them on?

Two websites that I go to infrequently and require logins and passwords are now generating warnings with the website's security certificate. I have no idea what to do. [more inside]

I own some UK stock which is listed on the London Stock exchange. The companies' shares aren't registered in the United States and cannot be sold in the US.
I would like to sell a portion of these shares, so I would like to find the name of an English bank and a telephone number for the appropriate person at the bank.
