I keep getting this message every time I change pages on the forum. Just something that needs looked at.

Yeah, I added an exception so I don't get nagged. Since I don't have access to the actual server, only the forum interface, I can't do anything about it. But I'll try to let Jon know. For now though the exception seems to work fine for me.

Hey everyone...it's me!

First of all, thanks Chris for the heads up on issues here.

So, the cert needs updating, that is obvious. I have a new cert...but....

I was/am working on a new server as well as a revamp for this site. I was doing this in light of some upcoming personal projects related to mustangs, as well as some long overdue TLC for this site.

Rather than fixing the old site. I decided to let it limp along while I polish up the new machine its going to be hosted on along with the new site hosted on it. So I just wanted to make a note here to let you guys know that things are being worked on, and the new site should be up within about a week.

Hang tight please!

Makes sense! I would have gone the same route 😁

Hey guys...another update, since I mentioned changes were coming.

Things are progressing but a bit slower than I anticipated due to work/life constraints...but I want to make sure I make it clear this is coming. At the very latest, I have a couple weeks of vacation I am taking during christmas break where I will have little other obligations...so at the latest, that is when things will switch over.

Just posting for extra info (which is useful I hope).
I don't know if this is a new problem or part of the original one, so adding it here....

Firefox was working OK on my desktop (Xubuntu 18) until yesterday, but now comes up with ...

--------------------------
eectuning.org uses an invalid security certificate.
Certificates issued by GeoTrust, RapidSSL, Symantec, Thawte, and VeriSign are no longer considered safe because these certificate authorities failed to follow security practices in the past.

Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_ADDITIONAL_POLICY_CONSTRAINT_FAILED
------------------------

site works fine if you add an exception (i.e. manually trust) for the site

I don't know for sure, but my guess is that's a new discovery relating to those certificate authorities. However I don't think it changes anything here. The cert still needs to be updated. This just means the certificate authority that Jon will use can't be any of those newly black-listed certificate providers being they've done something to discredit themselves. I didn't look into any of them to see if they were all outside the US, but if they are, then it's not likely he would've used them anyway on the updated cert.

What's disturbing is that Symantec and VeriSign are on that list. I would've thought those two would have been one of the most credible out there.
