I do - but it's ten years old (or so) and I didn't think it would be good to drink (not that water goes off, but after that time in a warm kitchen gawd knows what's been breeding in there / leaching out of the plastic. It'll do for flushing, but ...)

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
A customer of mine was considering a third party product for some functionality they want.
It's kind of a niche market and there is basically only this one vendor in the Netherlands for the product.
There's another vendor, apparently, but they're not very big (and they have bad experiences with them), and there is one company who wrote their own.
So anyway, I just went to this one vendor's website and the login/registration page, where I enter a username and password, company name, business identifier number, email and some other info, and IT'S NOT HTTPS!?
It literally says "Not secure" right there in the browser and somehow everyone is okay with this!?
And it's not like I went to the HTTP site while I should've gone to the HTTPS site (but seriously, HSTS?) there really is no HTTPS available...
If this is what they're offering I don't have much hope for their services, which is SOAP so my expectations weren't too high to begin with
The sad truth is that most of their clients don't care about IT and/or security, it's just a necessary evil and a huge cost...
