Just a note to let everyone know what's been going on and why the site's temporarily down.
A couple weeks ago, I started to get a trickle of reports about download links causing a weird SSL certificate error, and I thought I'd fixed the cause last week by checking the links. However, the reports continued coming in from even more people, so I contacted my hosting provider and described the issue to them in the hopes that it might've just been a server side issue. It wasn't, and the short form is that I've gone ahead and paid them to set up a brand new SSL certificate and migrate the site to a dedicated IP address to solve this problem in the short term.
I'd allowed the old certificate to lapse because I was no longer selling on the website and didn't really need it, but apparently the download manager really likes SSL, and getting a new certificate installed was the fastest way to fix the issue.
While the SSL stuff propagates, the site will be down for a few days. The archives should be back up and running soon. Sorry about the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience!
cowboyleland: I am thinking now that it coincides with about the time I downloaded an add blocker. I wonder if it is killing the cookies that used to keep me logged in. Anyway, not really a problem.

Vermin King: I use CCleaner every day to clean the oddball stuff that collects on my computer, which would clear out things like that any way. But usually, I stay logged on all day until I do the clean-up

cowboyleland: Did Proboards get rid of the "Leave me logged in" button?
