Mostly because I like to see my referrers

I can think of no security justification for encrypting the pages served by this site: the data is public, viewing it is unlikely to get you arrested in most jurisdictions, it doesn't have any kind of forms or upload facilities or anything - but, I would like to see referers(sic) in my server logs. So now it's all HTTPS, using the rather fantastic Let's Encrypt service.
Let me know if you see anything broken as a result (i.e. anything broken that wasn't already broken) or can think of a principled reason by which I can justify the (admittedly rather paltry) time I spent on doing it.
