Now with SSL goodness

calum.org now comes in a juicy SSL flavour too. You can find it by sticking an s after the http - like this: https://calum.org/. Now, of course you'll all know about the warnings that come from using self-signed certificates, so if you want to avoid them, import my Certificate Authority first, and you won't get them.
Of course, if my CA is in your browser, I can make certificates saying I'm gmail.com, and, if I could redirect your traffic for Gmail to my site, I'd be able to harvest your username and password*. It's a minefield, isn't it. Who to trust, who not to trust.

*Of course, I'm not going to do this.
