You may notice that you now see "https://" in the URL above instead of "http://".  I have decided to step up security since these days, it's the more common approach to things, and will help protect users from man in the middle attacks if they are using anonymous wifi access points to login to their account.

As this was a huge change, there may be resulting bugs that need to be addressed.  Please post here if you encounter any.

Thanks,
Kenneth.
