    Hb, your problem may be another wonderful update in something else (for your security and convenience, of course. I finally tracked my problem down through Wiki, of all places.

    The database has encountered a problem

    I saw some database problems. Refresh option on page got me past it, around 5:15 am PDT, August 7. Page asserted that the maintainers had been notified. Also saw slow performance, and one scrozzled Forum Introductions and Feedback subforum page display.

    I also recorded these instances:
    Mon Aug 7 12:08:07 UTC 2017 The database has encountered a problem.

    I can't seem to edit my own posts. That is odd.

    Edit - I can't edit any of my older posts, but I can edit this one. Weirder than I thought.

    Was there not a recent change that prevented editing after a period, like 24 hours?

    Some who maintained posts, to keep them up-to-date, were saddened.

    Not very long ago we've had to enforce the "no edits" rule that was already in place by setting forum parameters. This due to spammers using the edit mode to change old posts into unacceptable content. If you really need a post changed, use the report button and one of us can do it for you.

    Errr, yeah, what 01101001 said. This sadness was anticipated but we've been unable to come up with a workable solution for it, other than the one above.

    Now, that sounds about right. I guess that's a feature, not a bug.*

    Thanks.

    Edit - I am 99% certain I saw a post as described and reported it. So, it's really me.

    Mostly this will be annoying when re-reading a thread some time later, and noticing a typo that can't be fixed.

    I only hit the "submit post" button once, but there are three threads in ATM. I do recall hitting a carriage return, but I didn't think that would cause the draft to be submitted....

    I've deleted the duplicate threads.

    I don't know exactly what happened, but it must be more than just hitting an extra return, because one of the thread titles had a misspelling in it.

    XP is starting to suck. I think they are breaking it on purpose. (just because your paranoid...)

    I saw it when it happened. What I was doing was typing into the preview by mistake and hit the carriage return and the screen reset. I did it twice, but the edit box was still open once the screen reset.

    I probably should move into the 21st century

    I'm having difficulty posting to the SpaceX thread. Consider this a test to see if it's general.
    Symptoms: After hitting "Post Quick Reply", I either get a "do you want to leave this page" dialog or it just goes back to the thread without anything new showing up. In one case I copied my post before attempting to post it without success. Then tried again and the forum reckoned it was a duplicate.

    Certificate out of date

    I just started getting a warning message, my browser didn’t want me to visit the site, and I had to explicitly go past the warning. This has happened before. As I understand it, the certificate has gone out of date. Definitely needs attention ASAP.

    The expired certificate has been reported to Pamela and she is working on it.

    Please be patient. This started less than 24 hours ago and will be resolved ASAP.

    I saw that problem earlier today but don't see it now, so I hope it's been resolved already.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Yes - the certificate has been renewed, so all should be good.

    Next date is 2-28-2022. Maybe somebody should put it on their calendar?

    I'm very glad the problem has been resolved.
    But I'm still upset that it happened.
