News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Can anyone speak to the fact that bitcoin.org used to support https, but now accepts http connections only?  This is also true of www.bitcoinwatch.com.

I'm surprised someone hasn't beat me here yelling Conspiracy!!  They aren't just targeting me are they?   Grin

Bitcoin.org moved to sf.net hosting, which unfortunately doesn't support https.

It makes sense. Obviously, the websites were struggling under a high traffic load. HTTPS should reduce the bandwidth requirements.

It is not a conspiracy. They are just trying to keep the websites up and running.
