Hi Ed,

The updates are tangential to the problem, not the problem itself.

The DX4WIN website was issued a new security certificate on March 12
that is incompatible with Windows XP.  If you try to access the URL:


using Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, which is the latest for Windows
XP, that access will fail.

I believe that's correct.  Rick, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I have been offered to change the default security for my websites
(*.ad1c.us) from http to https.  That will probably break some folks
which is why I have been holding off.
