from the that-was-a-bitch-to-get-working dept.
Right now, we're running with a proper SSL certificate, but secondary services are running with a wild-card CACert certificate, we'll migrate those to a conventional certificate authority once we've done the possible site rename to prevent us from having to buy multiple SSL certificates. I've had to gut the back-end pretty heavily to make this work, so please try it out, and let us know what you find. Once we're fairly certain we've exterminated all the bugs, we'll be taking a serious look at the possibility of going SSL by default.
Until then, enjoy your now-encrypted BaconNews!
