What pictures are broken?  I can see my pictures, and other peoples pictures.


I figured out the "problem".  It's not you, and it's not me, it's Chrome, or at least Chrome's newer implementation of insecure http elements over https.

In a series of steps starting in Chrome 79, Chrome will gradually move to blocking all mixed content by default. To minimize breakage, we will autoupgrade mixed resources to https://, so sites will continue to work if their subresources are already available over https://. Users will be able to enable a setting to opt out of mixed content blocking on particular websites, and below we’ll describe the resources available to developers to help them find and fix mixed content.




I wouldn't be surprised if they started to affect Firefox, et al, when they begin to follow suit

Just a short post to let everyone know I am still lurking around here.  I have driven Dragon 1,627 miles since early July, when I finally got it on the road with registration.

I did have a small annoying problem come up last week.  The windshield wipers got an annoying squeak, that I traced to the pivot on the end of the crank of the wiper motor that the linkage is attached to.   I really had not ran the wipers much before this, because no rain when driving.   But the rainy season is here in western Oregon, and I am having to use the wipers.  

I need to put a glove box in Dragon, but for now there is easy access to the wiper motor pivot.

I took the clip, spring washer, flat washer, and nylon washer off the motor pivot, then opened the hood, pulled the engine dipstick,

and used a drop or two of oil from the dipstick on the wiper pivot, and no more squeak.   Yes, I wiped the dipstick before putting it back in the engine.

Hey everybody, thanks for reporting back.   I was beginning to think I might have to move pictures again to another server.




If you have the ability to use letsencrypt on your web host, then it will enable https for free and your pictures will show up.

Looks like he's using a host that already supports https, but certificate is expired.  I had to manually remove & resubscribe to letsencrypt on my dreamhost account because it stopped updating by itself.
