Some weirdness I'm getting connecting to the board
« on: January 09, 2021, 06:41:45 am »
So, in Edge I've a bookmark which should take me to the forum index, but today it tried (initially) to take me to:!

I tried in Chrome, and I'm getting a 'Your connection is not private' message displayed.  In Firefox, I'm similarly getting a 'Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead' message.  (I don't currently have Safari downloaded.)

The above is on a PC - I can generally get to the site on my phone, still, and I can also get in OK on my laptop by clicking one of the threads in Thread Announcements on the Discord.  No-one's had access to my PC except myself and my husband (and he wouldn't have altered any of my bookmarks).

Is this just me?  Can anyone shed any light?

I have no trouble in Windows Chrome, Waterfox (a Firefox variant), or Edge. As no one else is reporting anything, I suspect it is something on your end. :(
