comment Self signed SSL certificate with a wild card - works for sub domain, fails for the main domain
Are you sure that example.com is pointing to the correct server that has your certificate? If you are using Google's naked domain redirect for example, it will show the message you describe.

comment Avoid SEO loss after URL structure change
@EricNguyen search engines really do not care about domains, they care about unique URLs. So any changes to URLs affect your SEO, and those pages explain exactly how to minimize the damage you have done to the minimum.

comment Offline CMS for Static Web Sites
Would be better to use version control like Git, naturally. But systems like jekyllrb.com are becoming very popular and what they do is basically very similar to copying files via ftp.

comment How should I reference precompressed versions of static files hosted with Amazon's S3?
So there is no way to do this directly with S3, just with CloudFront?

comment Are there some good Javascript templates out there?
I wouldn't call these APIs, "abstractions" might be an acceptable description.

comment Are there some good Javascript templates out there?
Sounds like you mean HTML form templates, which are not related to javascript in any meaningful way. The term "JavaScript templates" is non existent, JavaScript is a language and has no visual representation.

comment What are the hard and fast rules for Cache Control?
@DisgruntledGoat actually, after some digging it seems that it is a relic from the http/1.0 era where it was part of the spec that actually said user agent must not cache assets that have query strings. On the other hand, code.google.com/speed/page-speed/docs/caching.html states that it is the proxies (squid < 3.0) that will not cache assets and thus using query strings for cache busting is discouraged.

Adding a query parameter disables caching of that file completely in some browsers. So you might want to go with the "change the file name" approach instead, like example.com/style_v2.css

comment How do large sites like StackOverflow handle their access logs?
Actually, when you gzip this kind of repetitive data ... it compresses really well. So I imagine you can just store it as compressed text files and remove them after a while ... just your basic rotation.

comment Need a CSS framework that has variables and “mixins”
For some reason the Compass website is not available at the moment, the code is here: github.com/chriseppstein/compass and a quick google search "sass compass" can find plenty tutorials to get your started.

The "low quality" feeling, Rich Skrenta called it “gray spam” i.e., content farm content. Just plain content for the sake of it.

comment What's the best way to show a message for only IE 6 and IE 7?
there is a 100% foolproof way to do it, specifically for IE browsers. and that is conditional comments. saying there is no way, and then elaborating on ways it wont work with user-agents is not a good answer to this particular question, since it can be done without user-agent detection.
