I couldn't find the sign.sh script either... I had nothing but problems
then switched to Apache-SSL and all my problems went away. I had a secure
server running in less than 30 minutes.

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's
too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry
that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where
were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?"
