Just a quick update to say that I have enabled SSL, and forced it by default, for this blog. Given all the revelations about the NSA, the straw finally broke the camel's back, and we are now live with SSL. There may be some growing pains, seeing as though this will cost me a bit more on CPU, but I should be able to adjust the load with the growth.
If there are any oddities, or anything of concern that you notice regarding switching this blog to SSL, please let me know in the comments, email me, get me on IRC, or whatever. Thanks.
