Boom! Kablooie! Crunch!

This blog had an unexpected hiatus today while we were trying to upgrade to HTTPS. I did not crash the site (this time, anyway) but I did successfully lock myself out of the admin pages for a while.

That’s why I haven’t published a post on the new Aura H2O even though I got it on Thursday, or on other news stories.

Luckily, my webhost was able to get HTTPS working so we won’t have to go through that again.

    HTTPS is important, so it is good that is over with.

    It is great that Kobo is still releasing new ereaders.

    I would love to know if the new Kobo has the same direct to device support for Overdrive that the Aura One has. If it doesn’t it seems like a bizarre move, as it’s seem to be a software issue not a hardware one.

      I hadn’t thought about that. I will check.

      Edit: There’s no mention in the press release, and my unit doesn’t have it.
