https://open-source-energy.org/

and

https://rwgresearch.com/

now have SSL enabled. These sites use a self-signed certificate, for a period of 10 years from now.

You will need to add a security exception by:
  • Firefox: "Your connection is not secure" -> Advanced -> Add Exception... -> [Get Certificate] -> Confirm Security Exception
You will only have to do this once.

Update your bookmarks if you want to use SSL encryption, by replacing: http: with https:

You should be able to use the SSL cert. on your host server without the user's intervention? Are you using a hosting service are going about the hosting yourself? SSL is pretty important for the average internet user nowadays I have noticed. I also noticed there is such a wealth of knowledge on this forum, google should be picking up on the data to rank the website more. Are there meta-tags enabled or are you purposely trying to fly under the radar of big data my friend?

SSL certificates are not free, so we host a self-signed certificate. Point-to-point encryption should be free from cost.

Hosting is configured manually.

This forum is more word-of-mouth through Russ than publicized out there in the mainstream.

With the pervasiveness of "the radar", it's more like trying to make yourself so thin the waves pass right through without reflection.   :-)

That's cool, I understand if you don't want a lot of attention to the website. I will respect that and won't backlink or point too many links this direction if you wish.

Humm, personally,  I have noticed a large volume of nothingness from people not finding my website in the last 1.5 years or so.

What do i mean by this?

I haven't sold a single levation kit in over a year.  After i noticed this change.  Then we change somthing and now it shows up in google. But still no real traffic. 

I thought we wanted as much traffic as possible.  We are open soruce right?

So yes. Lets do what ever is best to have to do to let google and other places get our info out there!

Those kit orders cover the website costs... (when others aren't helping, thank you for those who have helped keep this place going)

A Couple of Things

1 When Forum was upgraded it's traffic when south with the number members, just a point
2 Seams to be some different views if we want public traffic or not  all cool what ever we all love it how every it ends up
3 If we want to have some thing happen put social share buttons  twitter g+ fb and Tumbler Pin interest Instagram on each post and/or thread ( like button was a good start but better if a fb like button or share in addition)

4 Books are open source too but unless you know how to find them or correct ones, and or some one pass you the correct one (shares)
   you never see it

Have a Merry Christmas and New Year

If we start attaching all these social networks to open-source-energy.org, My OpenSource is going closed source, permanently.  I happen to know what all those social networks are for and I want no part of them.  My feeling is if people want those kind of platforms, then have'm and shut this one down.

to fix my statement.

I want people to be able to search the web and find info there looking for.

if they cant do that then my time here was wasted. that was the point of this forum. i thought.

however attaching ourselfs to all the social networks is not for this forum. i just want those looking for information be able to find that information. posted here on the forums.

else we should re define what this place is for and what its doing here...

We have no control over the content the major search engines deliver to the average web user.  Those folks are capable of flipping one switch that completely censors this type of research and chances are they have already flipped that switch.  Keep in mind search engines are privately owned businesses and they operate based on revenue.  There would have to be some incentive for them to link to this site, that being a financial reward.  Last I checked, we aren't sending those businesses a check every month.  That's the whole point of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) companies--to get yourself visible.

So that said, I kind of thought the point of this forum was to have a place that is spread by word of mouth, where people could come to, use our forum categories and search abilities to find what they are looking for.  How people find this site to start with is pretty much up to them, but once they do, hopefully some of the topics are interesting enough they sign-up and participate.  The LENR thread Axil has created is a treasure trove of information.  One would think once that is found, all sorts of people would flock here.  But I can type-in to a search engine "Axil Chiral Polarization" and not a single hit shows up for open-source-energy.org.  I'm not at all surprised.

Yes, I suppose we should.  Why we are at it, we should also evaluate whether people even care about this sort of research.  I'm guessing there are plenty, but since we don't have access to the search engine data to see how many people are looking for this information, it's going to be tough to know for sure.

As for this forum, we may have already been blacklisted.  I know there are hundreds of sites permanently blacklisted because they said a few words prohibited by TPTB.  I don't have a good answer Russ.  It's the world we live in these days--toe-the-line or be banished.  We live by OpenSource principals here, but the rest of the world does not and this world has the power to make us basically disappear.  To quote George Carlin, "It's a big club and we ain't in it."

I  am reminded of the story of how to make a Racoon trap .

IF Members share thoughts  in it would be good,

Open Source in my view is teaching sharing and helping to show how to be come sustainable and self sufficient 
traits that are extremely important for the current and next generation

Open Source Community has Community in the description

personally I feel that is beyond any sort of search engine or other things,

UTOPIA

https://youtu.be/48mysCvuJZM

We only have to look at youtube at builder tech on there to see there are million sof people trying learn and share and get involved
we should not being touting restriction or  reduction in access not healthy. 

Best Way to strike a balance may be to just promote on youtube and the forum there .

I know russ has alot of Exposure on Youtube pretty easy just to add a invite slide on the video and
get alot more specific builders here

Currently I spend 50% of time in Thailand rest travelling after 18 years here I have seen first hand what helps a country remain happy and balanced, the King here Teaches Self Sufficiency for people to be ready and effective in balancing what they need ,

for people to grow the own food make their own energy try to be self reliant as much as they can  this eases pressure on government a lot they are still their but neighbors understand community and help  each other more and are  prepared and have things to help each other,

American is kinda the same , if we could only stop putting up fences and mental barriers and sewing doubt .

Just my 2 cents

Utopia is possible but we must understand how to share and care it is part of it, not caring
well that won't help you in time of need.

Perhaps we should just double down and invest new Ways to Share rather than feel boxed in buy a google box.

letsencrypt.org offers free certs and even with automatic renewing. Just a thought

But I do not trust anybody anymore, so it is free most likely to get people's secret stuff. Free SSL makes you think you are secure and you start transmitting stuff you would not do over HTTP. Then they got you

I did IT security for a long time and I would rather keep my secret stuff on paper inside my granny's diapers. You might think you are secure, because all your stuff is on an air gapped laptop and they just use sound to send your stuff trough SIRI or Alexa

The thing many people fail to understand about encryption...

At some point data is encrypted.    Transmitted.   Then...
At another point the encrypted data is decrypted.

So why mess with the encrypted data at all?

Either get it at the point of origin or at its final destination.  You think the people that you really don't want looking at your private communications aren't already monitoring every keypress you make and every pixel on your screen.  You (and the guy on the other end) would have to be still using Radio Shack TRS-80s, everything else is fully compromised.

All my computers have the meltdown and spectra bugs in their pipelining CPU core.  That's just for starters.  I can only imagine what "Windows Update" is sticking on my machine to make things easier.

I taught a bunch of students in the CyberPatriot program about security.  I showed them a computer motherboard.  They didn't see anything obvious.

Then I told them security had been fixed decades ago by one simple rule:

NEVER NEVER NEVER let data and code come in contact with each other!

I had them look again at the motherboard and this time I pointed to the memory DIMMs.  I said, "Do you see separate DIMMs for the data and application code?"

Sorry charlie.  It's all bullsh1t.

I still have my VIC64 and there's forums out there who's hellbent on pimping them silly, with simple internet text browsers even, looks really cool.
Makes you wonder if there's still a future for those when it comes to sending (encrypted) data.
Or maybe some Arduino setup, or the likes, would suffice for such secure data transfer.....?
Hand written letters would work for sure, provided the postal workers don't go postal :hillbilly:
