My protocol-relative URL experiment is over

I posted yesterday that protocol-relative links would be removed to stop the horrors for those of you who are arriving via Instapaper or similar.

As of late last night, it is done. All of the protocol-relative link stuff is gone, and those posts which had images referenced that way have been rebuilt.

$ curl -s "http://www.instapaper.com/m?u=https%3A%2F%2Frachelbythebay.com%2Fw%2F2012%2F09%2F13%2Fopt%2F" | grep "img src"
<a href="https://rachelbythebay.com/w/2012/09/13/opt/meter.jpg"><img src="https://rachelbythebay.com/w/2012/09/13/opt/meter.jpg" alt="Power meter" /></a>

See, all better now.

If you're reading this through a feed and a bunch of older posts just sprang back to life, that's why. Sorry about that.
