Farewell to security warnings for library blog posts!

Last week, we bid goodbye and good riddance to those frustrating security warnings that popped up and waved at anyone trying to read one of our blog posts. We have at last migrated to the latest version of WordPress.org and are enjoying the benefits of using the modern secured hypertext protocol (https://). Don’t worry – your old bookmarks will all still work without you doing anything.

For our next trick, we will restore the tailored formatting that made the blog pretty to look at – the same as it was before the blog started misbehaving during lockdown. Things going wrong at the worst possible time and in the worst possible way is just an example of Finagles Law, and not a sign that the library blog is the starting point of the worlds first malevolent technological ‘Singularity‘. Of course, if the blog is about to take over the world, we’d all like to wish our new technological overlord well and reassure it we are here only to serve…

Technology – if you can’t live without it, you might as well learn to love it.
