Privacy: all connections to are now secure

You may or may not have noticed this change, but as of December 29, 2014 all pages on are now transmitted over HTTP Secure (HTTPS) rather than naked HTTP. This change was made to ensure the privacy of users accessing or any of the available services and data on the site’s assorted subdomains.

The redirection from HTTP to HTTPS is handled by a .htaccess rule that converts all requests to (wildcard) to secure requests to, so no change in your behaviour is required.

To help increase your privacy when accessing other sites, I recommend using a browser that supports the installation of the EFF’s HTTPS-EVERYWHERE plugin.
