As pointed out by others, the password changes really only have an effect if the certificate was also updated. This morning a certificate renewal was requested and I can confirm that it has now been updated.

 

So if it's not too much hassle, change those passes again :p

I can't seem to get the new cert... :(

 

I've ctrl+f5'd, I've cleared all history, and I've tried switching to chrome. I'd presume it might be some cache between me and the server, but even lastpass and ssllabs are only seeing the old date...

Maybe wise to post this on the front page? Or send a general mail to all the members to let them know?

Ugh, you didn't quote the entire post of the user who posted right before you - did you. xD

Btw., for anyone serious about passwords (meaning not anyone who's posted in here, hehe), you can generate fairly *secure* PWDs online and/or for anyone using (X)Ubuntu:

P.S.

 

I like to change mine every few months (using the max amount of letters) so changing it again is no biggie!

 

You must be a Window$ admin!! ;-P ;-D

Ofc., as everyone should?.. :)
