I've had the message you've been getting several times before CC and reported it to John. Seems like all is not yet quite as it should be...

Thanks, Hugh and Wonks for the gift of knowledge.
I have a pair of CM3’s (bought mostly because of an SOS review) and in the right scenario they are super, and fantastic value.

Thanks Mike - fixed now.

I changed from an https: back to an http: as the costs of having an https: is horrendous and I don't have an online shop so didn't really need it.

And thanks to CC for posting the free advert showing that many Gefell mics are on Special Offer until the end of September. ;)

As we're now have a chat about the Line-Audio mics in general...

... the hypocardioids (and new 'wider' cardioids) do sound 'different' from many a mic that's available because they don't have the almost de riguer presence peak that other mics at this price-point have. In fact, PinkNoise told me that someone had sent back a pair of CM3s for a refund as they were 'lifeless'.

If you've got used to the typical SDC presence peak of shallow-end mics you may need to recalibrate your ears! :)

Quite useful in a some ways if (don't read this John W...) you're multimicing and adding lots of them together....

Quite agree! I regard them as neutral with the ability not to make their presence felt...(see what I did there?)

The Line Audio mics I always recommend if someone needs good quality mics with a very low budget as they punch well above their weight.

Yes, the top end omnis are well worth the price you pay for them - but if you don't have a top end budget the Line Audio would come first on my list of quality at a very affordable price.

Either your provider is a rather expensive one or you've been misinformed. Getting the necessary certificates is free. See:

https://letsencrypt.org/

And the rest of the configuration change should be handled in a jiffy by any reasonably competent tech.

Thanks for the link - this is very new, though.

I've been using Letsencrypt on a few dozen servers since the beginning, years ago. Less problems than with some commercial certificate providers. And the one I've had most problems with, was one of the expensive ones. They had to be threatened by Google, Apple and Mozilla before the got their security in order.
