Steve Gibson has produced another helpful tool along similar lines to Never10 .. InSpectre https://www.grc.com/inspectre.htm Its a neat and informative tool written in assembler so its small (same as all tools from Steve Gibson), only a week in development, but already looks like its just about done at release #5 ..

Adding to the things 2017 is bringing us, AFK Mods should now transmit entirely using encryption now. Since Google has seen fit ti bully sites into doing this via scary sounding warnings in both Chrome and via search engine penalization, I figured it was about time to just do it and get it over with. Fortunately Let's Encrypt allowed the process to be about as smooth as one could hope for. Everything under the afkmods.com domain now uses HTTPS. It may take some time before every last thing on the site is served this way but so far it seems the site caught up to most of it pretty quickly.
