Numbers Are Letters and Words Are Numbers

Its been 15 days since I last posted on iBrattleboro. Brattleboro=47 in English Reduction(2+9+1+2+2+3+5+2+6+9+6)=47. 47 is the 15th prime number.  iBrattleboro=137 in English Ordinal 137 is the 33rd prime number. 33, in numerology, is the master teacher number. Teacher=33 in English Reduction. I figured today, the 11th, was a good time to post, plus, 11 is my favorite number.


iBrattleboro Now Encrypted

SSL Lock

iBrattleboro.com is now using SSL – a Secure Sockets Layer certificate. It provides an encrypted link between a server and a client—in this case the web site and your browser.

We’re the first local news site in Brattleboro to do this for you, and we join our fellow community media sites BCTV and WVEW in doing so.

Normally, data such as logins and passwords, is sent between browsers and web servers in plain text. This makes a site vulnerable to a “man in the middle attack,” or site spoofing schemes.


Welcome To The Newest iBrattleboro

It’s the same as before, except different!

Technically speaking, this is version 3.0. We’ve switched the underlying content management system, the site  is now mobile-friendly, and everything will soon be encrypted.

Our work isn’t finished, but it is close enough to let you join us as we make final adjustments. It helps to have people using the site actively as we fine tune. You may see a few test items come and go over the next few days, and you will see some definite improvements.
