Dan posted an update on Facebook that one of the databases that runs the forums and main site is suddenly taking forever to do anything which is causing the slowness. He's working on it but many times troubleshooting server/database issues requires taking them offline.

The latest change unfucked gPodder, so there's that. Now to figure out how to put in a feature request to the gPodder devs, because SSL everywhere is going to happen eventually...

This.

If you are using something to pull down podcasts that does not work with SSL I suggest that everyone do what McNutcase is doing and write a note to the devs. SSL everywhere is coming.

I have no idea what you just said, but it sounds important. Any chance of an English translation? :eh:

Huh. I wonder if that's why Podget just grabbed 40+ back episodes of FtB that I had downloaded previously...

Networking is outside my wheelhouse, but IIRC, ssl stands for "secured socket layer." Basically what it means is that you have an encrypted connection to whatever you are connected to. Only your browser and whatever webserver you are connected to can actually read the information that is going back and forth. SSL has been the standard for any page that gets financial information (like your credit card number) for a really long time. The only reason that all of the Internet was not all encrypted was purely because of computing power. It takes cpu power to encrypt and decrypt everything, but computing power has become so cheap that it isn't really an issue any more. By the way, if you ever look at the address bar in your browser and see that it starts with https, then it is encrypted. An unencrypted site starts with http.

Google is pushing everything towards encryption for security reasons.
