Thanks to a lovely bit of integration work by Bytemark that automatically integrates Let’s Encrypt with any servers that are running their Symbiosis system (like this one), this site is now SSL only, along with another 7 domains I look after.
And all it took was about 10 minutes on the command line, and a cup of tea.
If you want a system that is easy to manage, but gets out of your way when you want to tinker, Bytemark are fantastic.
Denizens of the Net are choosing sides. To my dismay, Amazon and eBay’s PayPal have decided that they are on the Net but not of the Net. When it comes down to it, they have decided they don’t really care for the Internet all that much, except as a low-friction cash register. How we would have rejoiced if Amazon and eBay had stood up to those who want to stop the flow of information that they don’t like. Instead they folded.
