Yes, my blog has been very quiet for the last few... years. Ack. I'm going to try to change that going forward and write more regularly.
The first step in reviving the blog is to bring it up to the latest versions of everything. As such, I just updated the blog to the newest version of the blogging software. It was probably over a year out of date up until now.
However, the biggest change I am happy to make is to switch the entire site to full, always on SSL, through the awesome new LetsEncrypt. LetsEncrypt is a new certificate authority that provides automatic and FREE SSL certificates to everyone! How awesome is that?
Kudos also go to my longtime webhost - Dreamhost for providing support for LetsEncrypt right on their webpanel. Well done guys!
So the blog just got a fresh coat of paint and is now fully secure. A good start to a renewed blog.
