Oh What Fresh Hell Is This?

One of THOSE headlines...

What in the world do robots need organs for? I can't think of any non-worrisome reasons.

Let's ask one of our Crack Team of Science Bots what possible use robots might have for organs besides living tissue over a hyperalloy endoskeleton to make them more successful as Infiltrator units. 

"Are you kidding!? I'll be able to ditch these 'splody Samsung batteries, 'cause I'll have a stomach and intestines and a liver so I'll be able to charge by eating Carolina barbecue and Moon Pies and  drinking RC Cola! And I won't stop with digestion either! I'm gonna be STACKED!"

Well OK then!

1 Stacked eh? Yeah, necessary for a future career as a pleasure bot.

2 BTW, what happened to your header?

3 @ Mauser1: Yes, but she's a respectable science bot so it's just a bonus.
@Mauser2: What's wrong with the banners? What browser are you using?

There has been an intermittent issue in Epic for some time. I think it may be running afoul of ad-blockers.

4 Same one as ever, FireFox. And it's back to normal now, but for a while there it was the generic banner.

5 That might have been me.  

I switched over to a new proxy server (from Nginx to Caddy) and was experimenting with automatic HTTPS.  It was switched on for this blog for about 15 minutes but there were problems with some of the scripts (including the comments editor).

I did notice that there were a couple of glitches after that.

I'll be enabling HTTPS just for my blog this weekend to test, before rolling it out to everyone.

6 Yeah, I accidentally vanished my own banner while continuing with the HTTPS updates today.  I'm sure the problems here were due to the first round of updates earlier this week.

7 Relative URLs in CSS for background images don't seem to work for HTTPS; they need to be absolute URLs.   Maybe protocol-relative URLs will work.

8 But..but...I don't want the protomolecule or any of its relatives in my urls.

9 As long as you're not trying to terraform planets with protomolecules you're probably OK.
