    Hey when I went to log in yesterday and today, my browser popped up a
    massage that said, "warning, this sites security certificate is not from a
    trusted source". Then I logged onto Facebook and I had a message from
    another tekker that said he got the message, "warning, this sites
    Security certificate is expired" is this stuff anything to worry about?
    Any insight is appreciated

    The certificate needs renewed. Prof is working on it.

    No, it isn't anything to worry about. Your computer is probably indexing the https instead of http and since the certificate expired yesterday that is a standardized pop up that you would receive. You won't get viruses or anything like that. Its just to let you know in case it was an online store or banking, etc that the connection is not encrypted. I was just too busy to manually reset the ssl last week because I have a new born that is only 2 weeks old. I am going to have our web host renew it instead because it costs the same amount to have them do it with a lot less manual work on my behalf.

    I should be able to get to it in the next couple days...
