I've been waiting over 2 years for my invite to Let's Encrypt. However just a few minutes ago I received my invite!

Renewals and Lifetimes
Certificates from Let's Encrypt are valid for 90 days. We recommend renewing them every 60 days to provide a nice margin of error. As a beta participant, you should be prepared to manually renew your certificates at that time. As we get closer to General Availability, we hope to have automatic renewal tested and working on more platforms, but for now, please play it safe and keep track.
Let's Encrypt maintainence events are posted on https://letsencrypt.status.io/ and Twitter (@letsencrypt_ops). If you need help, both the Let's Encrypt community at https://community.letsencrypt.org/ and #letsencrypt on irc.freenode.org are excellent sources of assistance.
If there are updates for Beta program participants, they will be posted at the community site at:
On behalf of everyone involved in Let's Encrypt, welcome to the future of the encrypted web.
Note: Please do not respond to this email. This is a one-time notification about your acceptance into the Beta Program. You will not receive further emails about our Beta Program unless you send in another application.

* PHP 5.4 has reached end-of-life on 14 Sep 2015 and as a result there
will be no more new upstream releases. The security support of PHP
5.4 in Debian will be best effort only and you are strongly advised
to upgrade to latest stable Debian release that includes PHP 5.6 that
will reach end of security support on 28 Aug 2017.

Has your website been blocked from Facebook or Instagram? Are you interested in getting your domain off the block list? Follow the instructions below.
Good evening guys, I got a contact form request from davidpolanco.com that asked the social networking question:
"Hey David, not sure if you can help me but my website has been blocked from Facebook and Instagram. I am pretty sure it's because of a virus/malware noticed that I received from Google Diagnostics regarding my site. Well anyways I wanted to know if you had any information on how I could remove my website from the block list on Facebook and Instagram, any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated."
Hey there, yes you can unblock your website from Facebook however I am not sure about Instagram, but since Instagram is owned by Facebook I am pretty sure the 2 networks will communicate with each other. Once the virus/malware is removed head over to Facebook's Website or Content Blocked page. I have provided a link below. Filling out this form will notify Facebook and will begin the unblock process of your website. The form is fairly short, however I would be prepared to wait 7 to 10 business days to be delisted as a nefarious site.
