Just Another HTTPS Nudge

I was strongly reminded about the scariness of non-secure websites the other day.

I'm using Xfinity as an internet service provider, and they give you a device that is both a cable modem and a router.

Here's a tiny bit of backstory. I use a VPN, and I discovered that in using their modem directly, the VPN wouldn't work. I'm not sure why. I didn't dig into it very far, because I have a modem of my own I'd prefer to use. So I plugged that in, which worked... but not particularly well. The connection was spotty and slow, even right in my own house.
