Things appear to be less than "back up".
Minor issue - my existing bookmarks for the forum do not seem to be working (they dump me to the main BBO page, but this is easy enough for me to fix)
Once I get to the forum from Firefox and attempt to sign it, I get:


This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.
What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Chrome does not seem to be as upset (or does not care - who knows) and lets me sign in without complaint.
You must know the rules well - so that you may break them wisely!

My chrome is also upset. Something about claiming to be or vice versa. (You can still log in by clicking past a couple scary warnings.)

If you're using in your bookmark, that is very out of date. The URL for the forums has been for a long time. We have a rewrite rule for, but I guess the backup site that we switched to because of the server outage isn't set up exactly the same way.
