Fully SSL for my website

Compulsory:

During my recent travel, I had quite a long layover at the Doha International Airport in Qatar. While killing time, I watched an interesting programme on the Al Jazeera network.

The program aired on Al Jazeera is Lifelines. This special episode I watched, covered about "Leprosy in India". After having watched the entire programme, I felt the urge to blog about it.

For Debian Jessie, the version of apt-offline available is: 1.5.1. This version has had some issues.

My very 1st backports is available in the form of apt-offline 1.7 for Debian Jessie Backports. For Debian Jessie users, this should fix most of the issues.
