Aye, it's been that way since then, and I doubt it'll change. I have Waterfox set to ignore/allow.

Oh, I didn't notice that date. Previously my browser must have been set to ignore the problem. If this is an additional problem to the problem that this board doesn't use https, then, well, that's something else to put people off! Does renewing the certificate cost time and/or money?

It's down to Giles as the forum owner, but as the forum software hasn't been fixed, I suspect this may be neglected too.
Whether it costs money (and how much) I know not, but it may be down to lack of time and/or inclination.

I reckon quite a few forums have similar problems - the LT and SSC forums, for example.
