Eventually I'll probably script through and make all links https.

I hope that means all internal links, and not all outbound ones as well.  That would bring Finders and Seekers to a screeching halt.  Tumblr and Pinterest don't appear to be https sites but they automatically answer an https link with an http address.  But on other hand Photobucket (where a lot of that stuff is hosted), sits and thinks about it for a minute or two and then times out.

Considering the fact that until recently I didn't know a difference existed much less what the difference was I have no idea what I've been using.  I can assume that both have passed through my computer so I'll have to say that both work fine for me.

No probs from me either, except with that initial slowness that others have mentioned and even then it's still faster than before the server move, so all's good.

I'm using the secure version of E right now, so it does indeed work. Additionally, I'm using a Witopia VPN as well - since I'm funny like that. So far no issues.

Oh, and both on a Mac and an iPad.

Actually, you know what... After saying I see no issues, I do actually see one. When I come to the Post Reply page to post a reply, If I sit on the page for more than half a minute while I'm typing up the reply, when I hit Post or Preview, the request will hang and I won't get my content posted or previewed. I have to disconnect my VPN, Reconnect my VPN, and then reload (go back and then hit the 'reply' button the the previous page) the Post Reply page after having cut and pasted my reply from the first (failed attempt). If I post the text up quickly and hit Post/Preview it works fine.

This is not a one off. I've posted 3 PMs and this will be my second forum reply of the day. It has happened each time since I moved to the https version of the pages. It NEVER happens with the http version.

Oh, this is all on an iPad. Not tested on a mac yet.

If you want to read a bit more about the gradual move to HTTPS from a semi-technical standpoint, feel free to check out this article.

We've shifted all of our corporate web sites to https simply for the increased security, even with scenarios where we don't handle authentication requests. My team hasn't found performance hits that we weren't able to overcome with good design, properly built headers and proper configuration. Plus it made transitioning over to more secure areas of our site seamless.

Good decision Veks, as always.

I would prefer HTTPS. It works fine this end.

Also, *Hugs Veks* Thanks for all the hard work, for creating this place and doing so well at keeping it going. You are a gentleman and a scholar.

just a question.. do you see any noticeable change in CPU usage in the server now that people are using more SSL?
