Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

What have pylons, mobile phone base stations, insulators and the traffic cone preservation society got to do with the Internet? Answer - they're all linked to an eccentric Web site dedicated to the 'sadly unappreciated' electricity pylon for enthusiasts. The 'pylon of the month' site includes photographs, facts and figures about 30 pylons from around the UK and an archive of pylons from July 1999. "Beautiful aren't they! Doesn't it just make you want to get out there and collect their numbers" says Bristol signalman Harvey Brant's site. Well no, not really but thanks for asking. Still, it seems 2000 visitors may disagree with us. This is starting to sound like part of a Monty Pylon sketch. One of Brant's colleagues told the Daily Mail: " It started off as a joke but I think he is secretly turned on by it… He does seem to be taking it all a bit too seriously now."
