website security and reliability

In February I changed hosting services. That took a lot more learning than I expected. It also had a large number of failures before my perseverance finally resolved the myriad details that had to be addressed exactly so.

Even before I finally achieved the reliability in presentation and fluid ability to post new articles to my sites, I began getting messages suggesting I really, really ought to convert to the more secure access offered by “HTTPS”, as opposed to unsecured plain HTTP.

Enter, once again, more details that I did not know and had to learn about.

Today I think my websites are reliably, consistently up on HTTPS with improved security for thee and me.

To take advantage of that, you merely need to add the “S” to my website address, changing nothing else, then save your updated bookmark to my page.

Maybe now I can spend more quality time with my shop tools.

I far prefer banging on things with hammers rather than keyboards.
