Sorry about the Downtime Today
  by Jim Furtado

Sorry about the downtime. I had some long overdue server updates to take care of today. The one you’ll notice is the site is now running in secure/https mode, so you’ll stop getting error messages when you visit the site using Google Chrome.

Let me know if you notice anything wonky.
