Hi Forest and Colin,

Forest, does your browser support this link?

Note the difference between "http" (bad old insecure link) and "https"
(secure, encrypted link).  These days, Chrome and other browsers are
starting to require "https", even when you don't care about

Colin: I suppose that's useful for you to know too, since your website
supports "https" links as a replacement for "http" links.
