I just assumed that the problem was related to my recent SSL renewal. Turns out, Google security recently published Distrusting WoSign and StartCom Certificates and removed them from chrome. How did I miss this? It turns out that the SSL on my site has been broken on Chrome for some time. It must be that I have been using Brave recently as my daily browser. I moved this site to letsencrypt.org and it’s working fine for everyone now. I don’t even know how much time I waisted on this one. wow.
My blog is now distributed with Amazon’s Cloudfront CDN using powerful encryption and signed by a proper CA certificate. See the shiny green lock? Like a grown-up adult website. After only 8.5 years. Congratulations! Thank you StartSSL!
Update: you may have noticed that the transition has been a bit bumpy. Still getting the hang of things and this website needs a lot of work (possibly a complete resurfacing). I am sorry about the downtime and all the SSL errors, I am working on it. Thanks Eric, I hope I didn’t step on your birthday plans kidnapping your brain.
