I was just using to check out some financial sites: : F, supports insecure SSL 2.0 - A- - not the local bank.. apparently uses java.. .ugh.. - powered/provided by intuit - A- - B - due to not supporting TLS 1.2. (used by likely a few cu) - inconsistent - B, A- - B - due to not supporting TLS 1.2 - A- uses mixed content on home page.. really? - B - TLS 1.2 capped - A- -asks for login name on insecure website.. otherwise a B

I'm not impressed. My ~$10 a month Dreamhost account can get me a B rating (with SSL kindly provided by for free). And if they were running a newer version of Debian, I think it would be an A.

And probiotics after taking antibiotics makes logical sense.... I remember a study that showed that our natural bacteria wasn't at the same level 1 year after taking antibiotics (please don't use this as an excuse to not take antibiotics). If we have the right probiotics available to us is a different story. My wife just got antibiotics and the hospital recommened probiotics...

*Disclaimer: I own a small bit of Whole Foods stock. I'm sure this post will greatly increase it's value....
