Census site now using https SSLV3

Description

In testing it looks like census has standardized on https.

In the tiger.loader_variables, we currently have site set to:

http://www2.census.gov

which ends up redirecting to

https://www2.census.gov

So this should be changed to avoid the redirect.

In doing so I realized old wget listed in our manual - http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm does not support SSLv3.

But I did find a newer one from:

https://eternallybored.org/misc/wget/

that does support SSLv3.

So I should probably update the windows docs to reflect that.
