Update: The return of MinUWet

We had two significant issues on Monday that caused us to back out:

  1. We used a GlobalSign-issued SSL certificate for the host ‘minuwet.uwaterloo.ca’. The certificate issued was not recognized by certain non-IE browsers, despite other GlobalSign certificates being recognized by those same browsers. We still don’t know why, so we’ve switched back to Thawte. (we’re evaluating other SSL cert providers)
  2. There were some bugs on the server-side of ‘test mode’ that our testing did not catch. These bugs have been fixed.

We are going to be re-enabling MinUWet in test mode on Thursday morning between 7:30am and 8:30am. Please let us know (soc @ uwaterloo.ca) if you find performance issues when running MinUWet. We noticed once instance of slowness but couldn’t reproduce.
