ell, crap. Now what.
You might have noticed if you came in the front way that my website has earned a little crossed-padlock symbol in front of the name. If you try to log in (well, to comment) you get a warning that bridge out, no trespassing, and there be dragons.
I've gone through a lot to keep this website up. I pay bucks to keep host and domain together. When I got hacked a few years back I paid a guy on eLance (no longer in service) to restore it (as well as to create a backup method). I spend a lot of time writing all the articles and reviews - every time I think of something about books, stories, media, whatever, I create content. Currently there are hundreds of reviews, blog entries, even train hobby notices. I've spent hours blogging and generally enjoy it.
So the deal with the WWW location is that it has been deemed unsafe because passwords could be intercepted. What does that mean to me? Not much. Currently I'm looking into what it would take to move to the approved https format. But if I get hacked, so be it. As a reader, you have no risk. Even if you log in and someone steals your password, so what? It's not like that gains any more access than any unregistered users provide. And I'm always reviewing comments so if someone does post as you and it seems misleading or offensive, I'll keep the comment offline and contact you.
It's really no big deal (now that I've had a chance to consider it). So, the site might be destroyed. Maybe I'll move it to https or maybe not - I've got a pretty old version of Joomla running here and can't upgrade. But yes, it's just one more thing to be frustrated about.
The new media. Piffle.
