Can't view images in list

Time:  8:25 PST.

For about the last 30-40 minutes I have been unable to view any images in my list.  When I try to do this the connection times out without loading that image:

 "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I get the same error message when I try to enter the Analysis Log.

I have no problem logging on to VPhot or stacking images in the list.

This happened to me last…

This happened to me last month. I went to the Admin menu and opened the "telescope" file that I had selected, just to make sure it was right. Didn't change anything, resaved it, and then the images appeared a little while later. No idea if this is causation or correlation, but apparently nothing was done by AAVSO to my account.

Good luck,

We'll look into this issue. Unfortunately, it is one of the 'hard to repeat' problems.

I just opened my image list and was able to open several of my images without a problem.

Interesting that it reports as an 'authenticity' problem. Are there some new security issues with the site??

Strange and annoying!
