OK so that means I shouldn't use it without an ssl connection.  That 
pretty much rules out using it with any of my hosted accounts since they 
don't do ssl without too much money for a cert.  Fortunately I only have 
one of those left.  I'm slowly replacing my hosted accounts with VPS.

Thanks,

Jim.
