Use firefox.It will give a warning but you can ignore it and continue browsing.
As does chrome.
As google wants to block adblockers and microsoft edge will follow them it is be the better option anyway.
Is it? I mean google needs to earn money somehow?

Sorry about this. I thought I had installed the certificate such that it would be automatically renewed. But apparently not. I was on holliday with only an Android phone. I had no ssh or ftp acces from there to the server, and could not even connect to the forum. (It kept complaining my clock was out of sync.)

I just returned home, and it seems my attempt to renew the certificate succeeded.

Thank you for fixing this and for your general maintenance of this forum.

sometimes nice helpful people only hear the complaints, but I want to praise you for taking action to save the forum
Three cheers for hgm
