Support for unencrypted connections ENDING on 03/15/19 ~ Morticon
Date: 2019-01-16 05:26 PM
As most have enabled SSL connectivity and I haven't gotten any more questions on how to enable SSL, I have set the end date for unencrypted (non-SSL) connection support for ** 03/15/19 ** (about two months from now). If you are seeing a warning message about your connection being unencrypted when you login, then YOU need to take action before this date if you want to continue connecting to SpinDizzy.
I understand that for those who have not yet switched, there may be very personal or unusual technical reasons for not doing so. In most cases, it is possible to continue using your existing client and setup if you run a secondary program to do the encryption for it.
You can find hints on how to make SSL work with most major platforms (including phones) at:
Feel free to update the wiki with additional tips and tricks.
If you have any questions, you can try asking others who have switched or talk to me directly. I can't guarantee I can solve every problem (though I will try!), but I should be able to offer advice or hints, or know someone who might be able to help. In any case, it is not advisable to delay the switch to SSL to the last minute, as you may not get the help you need in time.
