It would be really nice if the folk at Twitter would fix their images 
servers (i.e si*.twimg.com) to use a non-evil CA (i.e. not Comodo or 
DigiNotar or Bubba Gump's Bait, Firearms & Crypto Verification). Not 
that user pics are a great loss, but if you use 
Tweetdeck/Seesmic/whatever, the constant SSL cert warnings from dozens-
to-hundreds of user pics are noisy.


This is trivial whining on my part but it is operational.
