I’m A Complete S

In this case, the S is for Security, as in HTTPS. As of today, all requests coming to Impossibly Stupid are redirected to use encryption. I’m not doing anything that really requires such secrecy, but Let’s Encrypt has made it pretty easy to do, so why not?

Update: As part of this change, I’m also going to display regular HTTP links with an unlocked lock 🔓 in front of them. I doubt I’ll be able to go back and update all my old links to use encryption, but I am going to try to do that with any new ones.
