    Getting that error.

    "Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.wordforge.net"

    NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

    Had to go incognito to post this. Using Google Chrome.

    What's the scoop?

    Your security certificate is, like, expired by several hours.

    Several hours.

    I demand that heads roll for this. :bergman:

    I'm getting certificate warnings too. So....in basic caveman talk what does that mean? Also all my smileys are green fractured boxes except for the sad smiley and maybe another one. What's going on?

    It looks like they can get a new https certificate for about $9.

    I'll buy it if they call it the ohdeve https certificate of awesomosity. Of course, I can't use my credit card here because the site is unsafe.

    This is why I fucking hate the demand to make every connection on the web secure. A cert expires for an inconsequential website and your browser loses its shit.

    Nope. O2C will renew the cert later today and the issue will go away.

    You don't know who bergman was? Dude, he was a big deal! Bigger than Storm Rucker, Cassandra, and Tamar put together!

    Clearly the expired certificate has left a hole through which the board's history is leaking. This is even worse than the second Meka incident! :doh:

    Running Firefox to get around this since it has a feature to ignore this error. When's this gonna be fixed?

    Thanks! Though I give kudos to Firefox for being able to get around this, it's a bit sluggish on my phone.

    Yes, I am angry to. I demand you give me compensation for all the time I could not come here and post things on your dime. My time is valuable and I charge 150 dollars an hour so you cost me that much per every hour I tried to get on here. I figure at twenty four hours you owe me six thousand dollars. I will expect payment by the end of the week or I will complain again.

    Or you could ignore me and go on with your day but then how would I know I am important to you? You have to care about me, I am on the interwebz and I demand you care about me!

    Aren't you glad you fixed it so people can bitch at you again?

    Hey hey, me first or else judge Judy is going to hear about this.

    Actually, does the owner want to talk about a free trip to new York to be on tv? Seriously, we could fake a small claims lawsuit and have a free vacation on the Judy people. I got a perfect outfit for the show.
