    With the first year's certificate expiring, I've created a new one for the next 12-month period.

    I'm still going with the self-signed approach since the past 12 months has not increased most people's confidence in the CA system, or shown that this particular forum needs a CA signed certificate. (If anything, this past year's "happenings" may have decreased CA confidence levels.)

    I'll be putting it in place tomorrow, mid-day some time. Once it is in, if you use https access, you will receive a new warning about the certificate change, assuming you've saved the previous one in your browser(s) as I have. You can choose to save the new cert, which will prevent future warnings, if you prefer. I did that for the first year, and it worked well for me.

    If you want to manually verify the new certificate, see the fingerprints below:
