This is most certainly off-topic, but let me already voice my appreciation about long-awaited HTTPS! I am extremely happy to hear something is happening in this regard, even though things didn't go smoothly at first. And yes, I realize things might not be ready yet, I just wanted to voice my appreciation.
I'm as happy as you are about https as the site seems to be loading faster on mobile for me. My main focus for the site is updating the hardware figures and posting news and sales articles. I've got no coding skills, so it is great to see some improvements happening after so long.
