Thanks for the reply Krist,

Let me give you a little background on what I did (and still doing).  I
created a video training software that is now internet based.  Nothing
inside of the training needs to be across HTTPS, except the login page.
Client's said they would "like" to see it done.  Which is were I am at right
now.  I always thought that HTTPS is noticeably slower than regular HTTP,
which is why I would not want HTTPS on the entire site, since video and
graphics tend to be more bandwidth and CPU intensive.

In essence I am trying to keep the lag to as little as possible and only
encrypt what needs to be encrypted.
