re: Security FYI per this site

I should have mentioned this a while ago, so forgive me for not mentioning it sooner. Our site does not use SSL. What that means is everything you sent to this site including your login credentials (email+password) go across the wire unencrypted.

If you would like to see this for yourself, you can do the following:

Log out
Go to the login screen
Hit F12 in Chrome (I'm assuming you're using Chrome)
Click the Network tab in the debugging tools
Enter your email/pw and log in
After everything loads, scroll back to the top of the list in the network tab
You'll see an entry for Login.php.
Click that entry
Go to the Headers sub tab
Scroll to the bottom of the headers
You will see an entry for the form data sent to the site during login that has your email and password in plain text

That information went over the open internet just like you see it. That can be trapped by packet sniffers and viewed by 3rd parties.

Do not use a password you use for anything else. Do not use anything remotely close. I recommend using a 3rd party password vault program that will generate a unique and strong password for this site and all your other sites so you don't have to remember them.

Stay safe!
