The following things in red are the result of my in-box being inundated with requests that resulted in many facepalm moments. The intentionally satirical responses are placed here for your enjoyment and education.
If you think that something on your computer is setting this page as your homepage... You are wrong. Some idiot authored a Yahoo! Widget (probably this one - a poorly written POP3 Widget) a while back that YOU installed that is dropping you onto this page every time you start your web browser. I'm not the author, but the Yahoo! Widget is trying to get you to install OpenSSL so it can operate properly. You have three options: Uninstall the Widget OR install OpenSSL (not necessarily Win32 OpenSSL) OR continue to ignore the problem. If you are the author of the Widget, you are still an idiot and we need to have a talk about how to properly distribute your software.
Whoever is bothering my ISP, stop it. The files on this page are 100% virus/malware free. Don't believe me? http://www.virustotal.com/ If you have a problem with something, contact me, not my ISP.
Stop asking me for versions of OpenSSL that have security vulnerabilities in them! That would be any version of OpenSSL prior to the absolute latest build. This is a security product and yet people regularly ask me for a version with security vulnerabilities in it! Oh the irony. Please punch yourself in the face to knock some common sense into yourself. Thank you.
"Do you partner with resellers? If so, I'd like to request a quote for qty. one of Win32 OpenSSL [outdated, insecure version goes here]." I have nothing polite to say to you. Please tell your customer that they are dingbats. And if you are the customer making this request to a third-party software acquisition firm, please first learn how to read (see above regarding outdated versions). Then change your software acquisition process to be infinitely less asinine since you probably have a process that involves deep-frying the software that you acquire in bacon fat before delivery to your company's machines.

Announcement Mailing List
User's like yourself have constantly been bugging Shining Light Productions for some sort of notification mechanism as to when products are released and/or updated. So, to add one more worthless website feature to the slowly growing collection, this website now supports adding your e-mail address to the Shining Light Productions back-end database to receive product announcements. Since I care for SPAM and spammers about as much as I do this "feature" all y'all are wanting, you can be rest assured I will only send you plain text e-mail when a Shining Light Productions product is added or updated. Sign up below to receive announcements:
E-mail Address:
For those who want to filter content using their e-mail client, the subject line will always contain pertinent information for filtering in the following format (useful if you only want to receive notices for one specific product):

[SLPro - Win32 OpenSSL] Win32 OpenSSL Released!
Product Support
Shining Light Productions' Technical Support is highly acclaimed by many as the best in the software industry. The reason? You get to talk to the original/current developer of the product one-on-one...this means that there is no annoying third party using scripted responses.

The downside is that, since you ARE e-mailing a real developer, you need to realize this and respect the developer, no matter what mood he/she is in. A developer's time is extremely valuable and a developer may not be in the most pleasant mood all the time. You can quickly get on any developer's nerves by e-mailing multiple times, mis-spelling, mis-communicating, need to be told where your "Start" button is, or you manage to catch the developer at the end of an eight hour debugging session (or worse, the frantic portion of a release cycle). Shining Light Productions aims to be polite, but does not tolerate someone intentionally wasting a developer's time. In addition to being concise, organized, and communicating clearly, below are some guidelines to follow that make the Shining Light Productions developer's job that much easier to formulate a good response in a timely manner.

Bug Reports: To report a bug in the Win32 OpenSSL Installation Project, send an e-mail to Shining Light Productions describing your system setup, pertinent configuration information, what your intended goal is, and provide all related information (no matter how irrelevant it seems) to the bug.

Feature Requests: To suggest a feature, send an e-mail to Shining Light Productions describing the feature in as much detail as possible. Try to think of ways to make it benefit other users and thus make it a powerful, generic feature.

General Questions: If none of the above applies to your question, make sure it hasn't already been answered. For general questions or problems send an e-mail to Shining Light Productions containing your question about/problem(s) with the product. If applicable, send a configuration file that demonstrates the problem.
