Drummerworld and SSL -- It's time

Bernhard,

Websense is now blocking your site from a number of organizations, including my work.
You're browsing (drum) forums while working?
I would not like people working for me doing that...

More on topic: I do think SSL/HTTPS will be safer.
Then again, anyone using the same password should really start using a password manager.
And don't post anything on public forums, Facebook, Twitter, etc you do not want to be confronted with ever again.

You might not like it, but it's happening. Try to focus more on the person's productivity than what they do from moment to moment and you'll have happier employees and less stress from trying to manage workflow. If they're productive or make you money, it doesn't matter what else they do so long as it isn't putting them or you at risk, like browsing porn or something.

Kamak's point is that it's being blocked because it's rated as insecure and unsafe, not because it's a drum website. If his employer wanted to use websense to block drum/music sites, they could, but obviously don't.

Trust me, as someone who looks at corporate internet logging a lot, browsing is just something people do these days. Recent generations grew up with shorter attention spans and more aptitude for multi-tasking in several different ways. I myself am usually on here all day, but only from time to time in between tasks or as I wait for something to finish processing.

Indeed. My work day looks like...

Work for 30 mins. Make breakfast for fam. Work for one hour. Play drums for 20 mins. Work for 30 mins. Tend to the kids for 20 mins. Work for 1h. Make lunch. Work for an hour. Dishes and dish washer for 30 mins. work for an hour. Throw meat in oven and play with kids. Work for an hour. Play drums for 20 mins. Work for an hour. Prep dinner fir 20 mins. Work for 20 mins. Set table.... At 5:30, the wife gets home from work, kids are sorted, dinner's hot on the table. Then I work from 10-midnight as EU/DVCI TZ's come online.

It's a good gig cause I'm home all the time. It's a bad gig because I'm at work all the time.

SSL is the way the net is going.

Google will start to display site is not trusted in their Chrome browser.

So at about 60% of the market ,it could make folks think twice about visiting the site.

There are a number of free trusted certs you can get,so cost really isn't much of a barrier.

So there I was, working, and opened chrome, and accidentally clicked the old DW forum link.... And it let me connect. This was a surprise since websense filtering had been giving this site the finger for the past few months.

Great job Bernhard!
