Now TLS 1.2 and HTTPS Enforced!
Saturday, July 04, 2020, 3:39:00 PM
Users of some browsers may have noticed that even though this website was being accessed by HTTPS, the browser still reported it as "Not Secure" (thanks Chrome!). Though the certificate is valid, the site is hosted on IIS6 running on Server 2003 (if it ain't broke, don't change it) which does not support TLS 1.2 that Google decided is the only secure version. Thus they've deprecated TLS 1.0/1.1 and started showing warnings in the address bar, which later this year would turn into a full browser red screen advising the user of the "danger" of visiting the site. So to prevent this, I've placed the site behind an nginx reverse proxy which is capable of negotiating TLS 1.2 on Server 2003. And I've also configured it to redirect all HTTP URLs to HTTPS, enforcing HTTPS across the entire site (as is the style nowadays). So any old links, bookmarks or hand typed access to the site will now be secure. At least until Google decides to arbitrarily force another decision across the entire Web via browser monopoly. Everything should work as before, but if there are any issues, please let me know.

Detroit AutoRama 2019 Pictures
Saturday, May 30, 2020, 11:33:27 AM
Took a while (to be honest, I sort of forgot until about a week ago) however the 2019 pictures from the Detroit AutoRama show are now online. This of course still leaves pictures from the 2020 Canadian International Auto Show, and AutoRama to be posted. Due to COVID-19 there will be no North American International Auto Show visit as the show has been cancelled for this first year it was rescheduled to June.

Added Pictures From 2019 NAIAS and CIAS
Saturday, December 28, 2019, 10:14:28 AM
Checking the dates for the 2020 auto shows made me suddenly aware I had not yet added the pictures from the 2019 shows to the website. So at long last, the 2019 North American International Auto Show and 2019 Canadian International Auto Show pictures are now online. AutoRama 2019 coming soon.
