https ?

When will this site move to https secure URL? The current generations of anti-virus, browsers and business security software are beginning to make it difficult to log in. Is there any consideration being given to this? Thank you.

Speaking from experience running a website of my own, it can be difficult to enable HTTPS. Especially if you have no direct control of the web server - you are effectively at the mercy of your hosting company.

A site I am involved with has been quoted $100/year + another $30 per certificate for the upgrade to HTTPS. Given that companies such as Let's Encrypt can offer SSL certificates for free, IMHO this is pretty close to highway robbery.
