Weight and Stuff Report – 16 January 2017

Shock horror, down again today.

Having had myself certified at the weekend, I took my data in my hands and did some fun SQL editing to update internal links to read https: instead of http:, an exercise that shouldn’t really be necessary, as the server is happily translating requests from one to the other anyway, and serving things up in the proper way. Indeed, my two usual browsers confirm that they’re quite happy with my pages. But guess which one doesn’t really look at what’s happening, but instead looks at the source code and squeals about insecure resources? Yeah. Internet Exploder, which is still around, believe it or not.

Well, content now has explicit https: URLs, so that should stop it whining.

And to make things even more fun, I’ve started going through old posts with Amazon links in to replace the old images with modern Amazon embedded thingies. This may take a long time, as I’ll probably get fed up of doing it before long.

This is, I believe, a thingy known as a car.
