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.

    I was just reading a journal entry [soylentnews.org] by my dear friend Ethanol-fueled.

    He talks of "one of those big lock thingies hanging from his doorknob" that he saw on a vacant house.

    I've seen those on doors before, but I have never understood how they work. Can anyone explain this?

    What is the proper name for those things, too?

    You've missed the point of the gadget.
    Though it looks like a giant padlock, the point is that the thing is HOLLOW.
    It is called a Realtor Lockbox [google.com]
    Inside the thing, there is a key to the property
    Each realtor has a master key or a combination that opens the box.
    That way, each realtor doesn't have to carry 100 keys to show 100 properties.

      My god, my estimation of Ethanol, and others of his ilk, has just fallen beyond recovery. It is almost like when the Insane Clown Posse admitted they had no idea how magnets worked. Is it actually possible for human to be this stupid? Or more to the point, is it possible that humans cannot know they are revealing just how stupid they are, with a computer, over a computer network? I smell a patent violation here, along with the teen spirit. Curt Cobain:"Here we are now, entertain us; we feel stupid, and contagious!"\

        Nobody knows how magnets work. Not even physicists and electrical engineers. We can describe what we've observed about them and how they interact with each other and with other matter, but we still don't truly understand how they work.

          We know how they work.
          We just don't know why they work.

          It's probably god. Just not the ICP's ultra-christian version of God.

            There's absolutely zero reason to even think a god exists, let alone think that it makes magnets work.

      Drifting off-topic, but as a quick PSA: The better term is "real estate agent". You don't have to be a RealtorĀ® to be a real estate agent any more than you have to be a CISSP to be a computer security expert. It's just a trade group that does a lot of marketing and lobbying. And the lobbying is (surprise!) not always in the best interest of the general public.
