# https by default

I've had an SSL certificate installed on my website for awhile now, but it only kicked in if someone manually typed in HTTPS (which I've been using when I login to the site to do stuff). I'm trying to reduce ways in which my activities online expose privacy (for both myself and the 3 people who read my blog), so it's time to throw the switch for the default to be encrypted HTTPS SSL access to this site. I'd held off because I wasn't entirely comfortable that my SSL certificate would be accepted by all browsers, but it seems to be working. I'll be switching to the new Let's Encrypt SSL/TLS system as soon as it's up and running. Hopefully this summer.

So. It should just automagically load HTTPS encrypted pages. If it acts up, let me know (but if it acts up, you may not be able to read this. Mom.)
