Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

Brol

For the last week or so I haven't been able to access BROL. My computer says something like the connection isn't private. Is there something going on with BROL? Something goofy with my connection? Something I should be doing differently?

Well in my iPad’s title/search bar it reads:

Not Secure — bentrideronline.com

but that’s it, no problem accessing the site.

Which page do you choose for entry? I just go the the BentRider Online Forums page then jump to New Posts. On a regular computer it is possible to bookmark and access New Posts immediately, but not on any mobile AFAIK.

Problems with renewal of security certificate recently. Must still not be fixed/renewed yet if folks are having trouble logging in. Hasn't been a problem for me. But Firefox does show that Connection is Not Secure. I won't be posting bank account info there for the time being.

Same here. I assume Brian's working it out with his provider.

Edit: I cleared my cache... that is, all the cookies and temporary files, and re-logged in. The error is gone now.

I have to go to 'BentRider Online If I try any other link like RECUMBENTS - BentRider Online Forums the recumbent main page it'll say not secure and won't allow me access. I had to make sure there's the www in front.

Thanks everybody. That's exactly the information that I needed. The problem is exactly what i sus[ptectd. Partially BROL and partially my lack of internet prowess. I can access it now, but it takes me an extra step. I hope they get it fixed soon.
