Security certificate expired?

Is anybody else getting tons of warnings when visiting this site today? At every page load I need to acknowledge that the connection may be unsafe.

I've seen messages but they have been inconsistent.  I've seen them on my phone more than any other device.

I had that 2 days ago (phone only) but it seemed to be resolved yesterday.

And now, a few hours later, it seems to me fine on the name device (my phone)

It wasn't magic. I was finally able to get and install some certificates on the new site.

Our new hosting setup encourages (forces! requires! insists, even!) that we use HTTPS on all of our sites. 

All's better! And naughty sentient computers will have a harder time spying on the goings-on on the site now!

So, security certificate need updating again or unintended consequence of the BRexit?

Are you saying that you didn't vote to update the security certificate?

Joel updated the certificate this morning, which apparently fixed the issue for some folks but not everyone. I'm not sure when it'll be resolved, but hopefully this is a quick fix.

I got the expired message this morning too. If you're still getting it, then I suspect it's a caching issue.
