|Title||Site's Security Certificates Expired -- Now are Renewed and Problem Seems to be Solved|

Late last night (~10 PM UTC), the security certificates for SoylentNews.org expired. (Out-of-date certs result in nasty warning messages being displayed by your browser.)
Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience the outage caused.
Unfortunately, that was after I (and others on staff who could do anything about it) had gone to bed.
I had personally updated the certs in the past, but the last time was years ago. (TheMightyBuzzard had previously — and subsequently — handled getting and applying updated certs.) It had been so long that I could not find my notes on the process. (Note to self: it helps to look in the correct directory tree!)
Thankfully, @audioguy: appeared and was able to get things updated.
Please join me in thanking him for getting things straightened out!
P.S. The current certs are due to expire December 14, 2021, Please feel free to remind us as that date approaches!
P.P.S. The technical staff is aware of various automated solutions to renewals but made a conscious decision to do them manually. Remember that people make mistakes but to really foul things up use a computer!
