  • And…. we’re back

    Posted on July 19th, 2018 at 20:38 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The AskWoody site is now (finally!) back and working. Those of you who poked holes into your browsers may want to revert them. (And I can finally stop using Edge!)

    Many thanks to Drew, Doug, Robert — and to the legions of you who had the forbearance to not say in public what I was shouting in private.

    Anyway, the SSL cert ordeal is over. We ended up with a cert from Let’s Encrypt, woven into the fabric of the site itself. Let the games begin.

    Just saw this, tweeted by @liamosaur:

    Staying calm enough to not throw the f####ng thing out of the window, and I’m so angry I forget what the other one is right now 😡😡😡😡

    No, the epic AskWoody SSL cert problem isn’t solved yet.

     
    UPDATE – the site certificate is now showing as expiring in October! For now, we’re valid again – thank you all for your patience.
