I'm currently getting a "connection not private error" over at the Stack Exchange Data Explorer (using Chrome). I have verified that my date and time settings are correct, and another user has confirmed receiving the same error.

This should be resolved.

Unfortunately, the system that we set up to push the certs automatically failed in this case. We poked it very hard to get it working again.

    Is it "push the certs automatically" or "automatically failed"? :P Thanks for taking care of things! Aug 27, 2020 at 19:31

    This answer doesn't explain why the system failed (virus? capitalization mismatch? someone forgot to schedule it?) or what exactly has been done to prevent a recurrence. Aug 28, 2020 at 13:48
