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.

The certificate is down again. At least, just now it was. Does someone have the remote reboot stick, or shall I launch the thermonuclear reset?

I had this a few days ago, and just barrelled my way through. One presumes it's just another blackmail method that the computer companies have come up with to line their (threadbare) pockets.

Yeah. Riding 100m in a straight line WITHOUT training wheels.
And without falling off.

I misread the rules and did my cycling proficiency test at the bottom of the swimming pool.

Let me guess - you did your swimming proficiency test in the middle of the high street?

Normal summer weather.
That means: Yes, you did do your swimming proficiency test in the middle of the high street in the normal summer downpour?

Can't cross the road without it. Or a boat.
