Cannot access BBS from home machine, no problem from phone


#1

BBS has suddenly become inaccessible from my home machine. It’s the only website for which this is the case.

BBS.boingboing.net refused to connect

@codinghorror @sam ? Any ideas?


Https BBS not working again
#2

It’s been pretty spotty for me this evening, too.


#3

The secure url is down at the moment. Try plain old http,instead of https.

I reported this to discourse’s twitter an hour or so ago when I noticed.


#4

My browser (Chrome) just slaps the s back on there and says, “Nope!”


#5

Same in FF for desktop. But on the phone Firefox actually obeys me.

Got a workaround for desktop @enso?


#6

I had to disable the HTTPS Everywhere extension for the site, and it worked.

Well there you have it. I will simply wait for the PTB to address the issue. Thanks @LDoBe!

Working helldesk has its few advantages.

Chrome on Mac for what it matters since it seems to be the HTTPS link that’s causing the issue. I did an absurd amount of troubleshooting before y’all posted this but didn’t realize my phone browser had defaulted to HTTP. :laughing:

Hmm yes looks like a minor snafu with https based on some internal config changes here on our end, will get it sorted asap.

Thanks man!
