    … with apologies to Leibniz.

    Good news on the Plus Membership front, too. The bugs are disappearing slowly. More info shortly, I hope.

      The site’s fine, the warnings from Chrome and Firefox are correct — I let the SSL certificate expire. Again. You might imagine that I’m not happy abo

      Did you know that Apache >=2.4.30 has now bundled ACME support with basically zero configuration required?

      I’m way ahead of you. I lost my hair long ago. Last week my wife told me I need a hair cut. I said, “Which hair?”

      I don’t know diddly about SSL certificates, but can’t you have some kind of auto-renewal setup, like with a domain registration?

        I had a similar problem with my website. Domain registration and SSL certification are separate, yet the pestering to ‘fix’ any of the above is relentless in their own right.

      This morning  (in Europe) I was scared of not accessing your site.
      Luckily I like to read your news and everything is back to normal.
      I add that I’m in 1809 and yesterday’s update went well.

        It was on Automatic Renewal (we thought). But the transition has been derailing more than just Certificate renewal. It will line out eventually and be back to “normal” (if there is such a thing).

      I have been having issues connecting to your site for days now. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not work. May be the expired SSL certificates were the cause of not connecting. Will see if have any more problems.

      “Pangloss sometimes said to Candide:

      “There is a concatenation of events in this best of all possible worlds: for if you had not been kicked out of a magnificent castle for love of Miss Cunegonde: if you had not been put into the Inquisition: if you had not walked over America: if you had not stabbed the Baron: if you had not lost all your sheep [loaded with jewels, a gift from a king] from the fine country of El Dorado: you would not be here eating preserved citrons and pistachio-nuts.”

      “All that is very well,” answered Candide, “but let us cultivate our garden.”

      Yes, indeed, let’s do that. (The garden was a veggie garden that, in their dismal destitution, was the only reliable source of food for Candide and his friends at the very, and very metaphorical, end of the story.)

      So here is to all of you now trying so hard, for the final success with this changeover.

      Your luck that is days for you. I have been having issues connecting to this site four weeks now. I tried Windows 10, Windows 7 iphone, Ipad, and Android tablet. None worked. I finally got my Windows Xp out of storage and finally was able to connect to this site. The others still are not connecting. No other changes made except XP has not been online for 6 months or so. Xp is still the best.

      I had problems for only a few days. But it seems to be working so far after SSL certificate was renewed. PKCano said that was not the problem but not sure what else could have been. I have not change anything on my system. No change to updates and no new programs installed.
      I might have to take my XP out as well if the connection issues come back.

      Chance would add “In a garden, things grow . . . but first, they must wither; trees have to lose their leaves in order to put forth new leaves, and to grow thicker and stronger and taller. Some trees die, but fresh saplings replace them.” (From ‘Being There’, Jerzy Kosiński)

      Windows is like women. You love them, sometimes hate them, but can't live without them.
