So I'm reading some of the recent threads here, and all of a sudden, 
warns me of a problem with a cert.  I have an old, essentially unused, Yahoo 
email address that came along for free when I got DSL from AT&T years ago.  As 
with all my email connections, I require SSL - which may be about as effective 
as tossing salt over my shoulder, but hey, it's still the best we've got.  It's 
been working fine - well, the servers are noticeably slow - for years.  All of 
a sudden, I'm told by that it can't verify the cert for connecting to because it was signed by an unknown authority.  Its signer 
is DigiCert - it's a "DigiCert High Assurance CA-3" signing certificate.  
Expires on November 13 of this year.

Bizarre.  Time to replenish my stocks of aluminum foil.  :-)
