In which the intrepid narrator finally enables ssl on his website

I've finally joined the more-secure web by enabling SSL on my personal webpage. I've added code to rewrite all urls served by my site as relative links (which will refer to https), and to send http redirects from all http urls to their equivalent https urls. You will now be unable to view my site if your browser does not support SNI, but as of the middle of 2016, the only browser that does not support SNI is Internet Explorer on Windows XP, and if you're stuck using that the entire rest of the Internet is going to break for you real soon now so you had better get with the program and install a real browser. (I'm a fan of Chrome. Firefox is a nice browser too.)

I've checked most things I can think of, but please let me know if you have any problems with my site on a modern browser.

like a lot of geeks, I can run risky meatspace things
through my head until a faulty value comes out that
suggests there's no need to actually do them.
