Trev,

I note the alert at the top of the screen:

"We have upgraded our hosting account this morning. We will also be implementing SSL for the site so we suggest you update your bookmarks soon to https://model3ownersclub.com"

I'm not computer savvy, so I need an executive summary for "SSL" and whatever impacts this may have for me being able to continue to log on.

I attempted to copy and paste the "https://model3ownersclub.com" into my Firefox browser.

Firefox did not like that address and had all these freak out warnings:

Your connection is not secure

The owner of model3ownersclub.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

Please advise what all this means.

Thanks

Cheers

Mike

@Mike The SSL certificate is not ready yet which is why you're getting the error. Once it is our site will just redirect to https automatically. I was just putting a heads up that you might want to update bookmarks once it goes live. Perhaps sometime tomorrow.
