Noticed the “site not secure” recently too. Probably just a site update so you’ll know that sneak Russian hackers could have access to your Avatar name

I was chatting with John Grocke over on the S.S. Facebook page on this very issue. After I brought it up, he looked into it and sure enough the security certificate had expired. He got his tech guys on it and it was fixed right away. :cheers:

All of your iPhone data is stored in China now including the encryption data and codes that Apple would not give to the Feds after the Boston Marathon bombing. Been a few months now. Ironic.

Our SSL certificate had expired. I called our web host tech support and they applied a new certificate which should fix the issue. Please let me know if anyone is still having problems.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

All is well...

How does that work? Do you have to "buy" a new certificate from some entity?

No, we get an SSL from our web host included with our hosting fees. We've been around so long that ours expired. Not sure why they just don't auto renew it. 2nd time in 11 years...
