Play it again, Sam

Previously, when you finished playing a game and wanted to play that same game again, you had to reload the page. We had a “Start Over” button that helped you do this instead of manually triggering your browser, but the effect was the same. You had to transfer a bunch of data from the Match The Memory site again. This was a vestige of the very first version of the game that used some old technology.

Is this line secure?

Security has been a big deal on the web for the last few years, and systems like Let’s Encrypt have made it easy to make web sites secure. This week, we turned on HTTPS for all pages on Match The Memory. (Previously, only our purchase page was secure through PayPal.) Going to the old HTTP address will automatically redirect you to the new secure HTTPS page, where you’ll see the green padlock icon in your address bar.

What does this mean for you? Now you can be sure that when you play one of our matching games, or when you create a personalized matching game of your own, that nobody else is listening in on the conversation between your browser and our server. You can feel safe that nobody’s adding viruses or advertisements using Match The Memory as a back door into to your computer.

Improving every day

Match The Memory has been my baby for more than six months, and I’ve worked on it hundreds of hours during that time.  I’m adding to it every day.

But I can’t do it alone.  Mine is only one opinion, and I want to make the best memory matching game possible.  That means I need your input.  Let me know in the comments what you think could be done to make this a better web site.

I also need the input of your friends and family.  Share the site with them (via email, blog, Facebook, Twitter, whatever!) and ask them to come check it out, and leave their mark on the site by contributing a great game and some feedback.

Together we can make this an awesome site!
