Live writing with unsafe certificates

Once in a while you might not have a 100% safe certificate, and you don’t want to go through the hassle of getting a 100% certificate just for testing purpose.

So I wanted to test my new blog, but I already had everything setup to connect via SSL only. This unfortunatly screwed Windows Live Writer, because I couldn’t connect.

Until I figured, that you can supply commandline parameters to WindowsLiveWriter.exe, such as /allowunsafecertificates … so hello live writing!
