Minutes. Maybe even seconds after I published that last post… Voilà! My new static IP address propagates through DNS, HTTPS works perfectly, and I sound like a cranky old guy. Again.

They tell me comedy is all about timing.

Anyway, I pushed out the new content changes and, of course, they worked perfectly too. Dammit! You really can switch to HTTPS in less than half a day. Even if you’re an idiot like me.

But I had help. Props to DreamHost and MaxCDN for how easy their systems are to use. I recommend them both.

Moral of this story? Remain calm and don’t fear the encryption.
