I'm in the process of converting the site over to https. This gives more security, and also improves google search results.

Changing to https means any hard coded absolute links, like http://www.thebackshed.com/forum need to be changed to https://www.thebackshed.com/forum. This is a yuk job, and I'll do it over a few weeks. If you navigated to here from a link on the forum or web site home page, good chance its already sent you to a https secure page. But there is content on the pages ( like some images where I hard coded the http://www.thebackshed.com/etc/etc to the image file ) that will upset the SSL and you may see a message about insecure site. Ignore it.

People say 2020 is a terrible year, with the bush fires, COVID 19, and riots. But I see it as the year we woke up to ourselves.
