    This thread will serve as "mini" announcements that I do not feel need an separate thread.

    As such, things posted here are things that I have recently touched and want you to be aware of. :up:

    BeerCandle has been submitted, accepted, and included into the Chromium HSTS preload list.

    The HSTS Preload list is a list of sites that are hardcoded into major browsers as being HTTPS only. The list is currently used by Google Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Opera, and future Internet Explorer.

    What this means is that you're guaranteed to always and only connect to BeerCandle in a secure and encrypted fashion, never over insecure HTTP, not even when using a new computer or browser.

    Once again BeerCandle is one of the more proactive sites when it comes to privacy and security, surpassing even many banking websites. :cat:

    OK this is done now.

    Things have been touched. I'll touch more things at a later date.

    Sometime next week the forum will turn off again, with it being offline for a little while as well.

    Much like last time, it'll go down when I have free time, rather than a set date. The only guaranteed thing is it will happen next week, sometime between Sunday and Saturday.

    OK, this is done. A few things have been touched, mainly permissions. If you are lacking permission that you had before, please do let me know.

    BeerCandle will be moving soon!

    I've noticed that we've been steadily getting slower and it's probably no doubt related to the location we're in. In the coming weeks I'll update further as it becomes closer to a reality. :)
