Public Discussion / Re: How goes the Christmas season?
« Last post by The Gorn on December 09, 2018, 09:07:37 am »
Here in Ohio this has been an absolutely shitty, rainy year, and the start of winter promises more of the same. Today and for the next 3 days it is supposed to be DRY which is a NOVELTY this year since about early October here. I was blindsided in November by a sudden instantaneous leaf fall that happened during a violent storm, so I have mounds of rotting wet leaves in the front yard that are normally gone by the first week of December. We have the skies of Seattle and the temperatures of Norway, grrrr.  >:(

That is a really good price.

I have a question about card formats. This new SSD internal card format... what is this interface called? It's SATA, I see, but it's also socket based rather than cabled. I don't think my mobo has any socket like that, or would it?

Damn, that's a good price. 1TB for $147 and you get free shipping. With Prime. they had the 2.5" on sale for a long time also.

Remember early 90's when 1Gig was a huge deal.

I noticed Ebay and Amazon are having non-stop sales and so do other sites like vitacost dot com (Vitamins and other stuff)

To me this suggests the economy isn't all that hot.

reporting here from the District of Corruption, nothing unusual, same olde. Same as last year, same as 10 years ago. Cold and no freaking snow. I wish we would get some already.
 -5 Centigrade tonight.

I just posted again. I'm using Chromium (Linux version of Chrome, same basic features) and I do not get the red symbol in the browser address bar. It does keep a "Not secure" message up in the address area, though.

Ok, it's absolutely nothing to be concerned about, short version.

Long version, this website does not use an SSL certificate. Meaning - all content in and out of the server to your browser (w/o SSL) is unencrypted, clear text. I COULD set up SSL but simply have not bothered. Chrome's standard is that all sites that transmit user data back to the server "should" use SSL. So you send data and in response you get a red icon to WARN you of HORRIBLE things happening due to unleasing your post to the intertube.

It's a nanny nag...  nothing's changed.

Sound good?

Its like that, not a popup, but mine has a red triangle next to Not Secure, which is also red.  Its only when I post.  If I don't post anything, it looks like the bar you have.  It says don't put any sensitive information out there.

I thought I should mention it.  I use Chrome.

Details.

Browser?

Like THIS, or a popup that happens? THIS text in the address bar means it's not an SSL site. This is Chrome (actually Chromium on Linux but almost identical to Windoze Chrome.)
