Yep, getting connection is not private errors here on Chrome, though you can continue at your own risk.

On every page request. That's really bothersome... I don't know why Chrome doesn't allow a "remember choice for this site/session" or an "I know what I'm doing" or a "I trust this site" option. At least then the site would be usable until the issue is sorted.

Chrome is simply going for the lowest common denominator and scaring the hell out of people that don't realise that the site is still secure, just with an out of date certificate.

Come to think of it, a better way would be to give a site owner 7 days grace. Provide the user a warning but don't be so dramatic for the first few days after a cert lapses. Then if it's still not sorted go nuclear on the trust warnings. Sigh.

The certificates had updated, but it looks like the webserver needs kicking over to get the new certs in. Should be ok.

OK - it'll restart the webserver automatically now. Hopefully that should be fine now :)
