Just Because You’re Paranoid…

Just a quick site administration note. I’ve setup secure hosting for Broken & Saved, which means you should get here with https://www.brokenandsaved.com instead of plain http://www.brokenandsaved.com. The site will automatically redirect you to https if you use forget and use http, but it would be good to update your bookmarks to the site to add the s after http.1

You will (should?) not notice any difference at all. The only difference is that the communication between your web browser and the web site itself is now encrypted, and you have assurance that when you specify this site in your browser, it’s really this site that comes up. It also means it’s reasonably difficult (as opposed to trivially easy with http) to eavesdrop on the communication between the browser and the site. With our government’s2 increasingly aggressive attacks on privacy (all privacy, not just “criminal’s” privacy), every little bit helps.

I have a real post in my head, I just have to get it down on pixels. I actually started it today, and then got distracted by adding secure hosting to the website. Squirrel!


  1. I crack myself up — like someone has the site bookmarked.
  2. It is not a Democrat or Republican thing, it is a US government thing. It leaped an order of magnitude with Bush, and has continued to accelerate with Obama.

  1. I have your site bookmarked, sir. How ya like them apples?!

    What pray tell was Vince Rice doing up at 1:41am? Saying hello to your loved ones halfway across the globe?

    Hope you are well, brother. I miss you and Sharon.

    1. Hey, 1:41am is my sweet spot — I’m a night owl, honey. (It’s from a song, Google it.)

      I was actually going to email you this week. I ran across your email last week while I was looking for something else, and I thought, “I haven’t seen him in a while, it’s time to poke him with a stick.”

      So, we’re at LG every Tuesday night. Come see us. We’re having a dinner social tomorrow night, you don’t even have to bring your Bible. 🙂
