Website Etc

At one time it was setup so that all posts here on the website were automatically published on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/xarc73/ ). Apparently that stopped working a few months ago, so I investigated why. Facebook now requires all websites that publish to Facebook be from sites that have SSL enabled (https). The additional cost for that feature is approx $70/yr.
Other than Google (and maybe others) labeling this website as (Not secure), lowering our search index ranking, we probably cannot justify paying the additional costs.
We aren’t trying to sell anything, we don’t ask for sensitive information, our dues payments are handled by PayPal (with https). So we really don’t need it, other than the convenience of our posts being reproduced automatically on our Facebook page.
I will try to manually copy posts here to there, but can’t guarantee they will always end up on Facebbok, so you will have to bookmark this page and visit occaisionally. Sorry.
