Beginning on 2014-05-29 we will be rolling out a shiny new website. As we work out the kinks, the web shop may be intermittently unavailable. In the meantime, please join our mailing list (sign up in the left column of the home page) to be notified when the redesign is fully deployed and ready for business. Thank you for your patience!
In addition, for your reference I have created a guide to help you learn about and protect yourself from this serious vulnerability.
Heartbleed Bug Guide
The Heartbleed bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library, which is used by roughly 2/3 of websites on the internet. The bug was introduced in a version released on 2012-03-14 and a fix was released on 2014-04-07 — over two years of potential vulnerability.
There are many major websites that are or have been vulnerable. I personally had my credit card information stolen a few days before news of the Heartbleed bug broke in the mainstream media, so I urge everyone to take this issue seriously and take measures to protect your information. Below you will find a collection of information and resources that will help you secure your data.
* Determine the vulnerability of your major and sensitive accounts, such as email, banking, and social media (see resources below)
* Ensure the site has already fixed the bug (if not, let them know!)
* Change your password following best practices
* Monitor your credit card and bank accounts closely for unauthorized activity

Final note: I use the free browser-based password manager LastPass and highly recommend it. LastPass has been invaluable in my efforts to secure vulnerable accounts.
