    Okay folks some might be getting some new funky errors or seeing some things differently.

    As always we try to stay on the leading edge of the technologies on the Internet and believe it or not we do a pretty good job of it. You guys have surely seen in the past the secured lock icon or the address bar in your browser turn green when you went to places like Paypal, your bank or to a government agency.

    Google is pushing out changes and since they are the big dogs in the browser world they can do pretty much what they want. In the near future anysite that isn't HTTPS secured or using an SSL certificate to validate their connections and potentially who they are then the end user will get a notice on every single page that tells you the site is not secured.

    In an effort to stay ahead of all of this we have been working to get the site protected, the domain name validated and our organization certified and that was completed today.

    You will now see in the browser you use a Green lock and the word Secure along with the domain name:

    There will be times that you could be alerted to content that is not part of our site and those times would be when there is embedded content from Youtube or Vimeo as an example.

    This is what you will see in most browsers:

    I keep getting the same "like" alert.
    New posts are not updating, as in I read page 3 of a new posts topic, and the next time I log in I see "new posts" from page 2, page 3 hasn't even happened yet, lol.
    Messing with time travel again, huh Captain??

    Heh, so I am modifying Apache and nginx so that the site will load faster on mobile systems and lower bandwidth systems. To do this means a fundamental change in the way we do things, historically we used Cookies to mark content but I changed that today and now I am relying on your browser to know the difference in static vs dynamic content. I am working through it now but I am adding tags to the parts of the site that are dynamic so that the browser knows what to redownload each time.

    For now, just hit the F5 or refresh button and it will get you want you want...
