Paul Schreiber blogs about the tech behind the websites of presidential candidates. "So, you want to run a country. Can you hire someone who can run a website? ...Here's how the (declared) candidates' sites fare." There's a table comparing 4 candidates' sites based on HTTPS, URL permutations, IPv6, SSL rating, and other related qualities. Schreiber mentions that he will "update this as more candidates declare or sites change."

From the blog comments

HillaryClinton.com was using IIS (and no https) until Sunday morning, when they switched over.

    What's wrong with using IIS? Modern versions are very capable and robust.

    When I got my first tech job I had Windows 95 on my machine. I had to reboot at least once a day and often ai'd try to put off a badly needed reboot even though it was slowing me down. That's why I hate modern versions of IIS.

        No, he tries to show that operating systems from Microsoft puts the user in impossible situations and generally causes problems than need not to be. So one should not use it.

            Once upon a midnight dreary,
            while I pondered, weak and weary,
            Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
            While I nodded, nearly napping,
            suddenly there came a tapping,
            As of some one gently rapping,
            rapping at my chamber door.
            Quoth Ethanol-fueled,
            "Suck my rock hard cock you dirty skanky whore!"
