    Christmas Lights!

    Basil, Are we now using bullet proof lights?

    I think Basil already knows this, but even tho' BCF is now a secure (https) website, it's linking to non-secure (http applets. Many browsers either block or freeze non-secure links. I think the "holiday lights" are from a non-secure site.

    Take a look at the page source for the Pub page, for example.

    To see them, you might need to disable some blocking filters in your browser.

    Onward through the almost-secure fog!

    There's a thread about this in the Forum Happenings (or Forum Help?) forum. There are apparently some work arounds, but I doubt I'll be able to completely fix it due to the site now being fully https://

    Bunch of hooligans you all are, not only do you want Christmas lights, you want to be able to vandalize them with impunity.

    From the great State of Oregon, I wonder about these Christmas lights... and, with that, I yield back.
