Needed to get a developer key for a XO. Clicked on the provided
field in Browse - it timed out. Ended up extracting the request
from /home, carrying it to a desktop machine, issuing the request in
a browser there, creating an exception for the invalid certificate
at activation.laptop.org -- and finally getting my request accepted.
Now I have to sit on my thumbs for 24 hours.
- If users are expected to access activation.laptop.org, please
install a valid certificate at that website.
- If users are expected to issue the request from an XO, please
think of how frustrating it is to the user to have his intent
be disparaged (e.g. - fail, and fail, and ... )
