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!
Coyotepunc: Thanks, guys. He's still pretty sick, but no trouble breathing. So we are staying away from the hospitals, so the people who truly need them can use them.

squirmydad: My supervisor's state of mind; she's been climbing the walls begging to put us back in the game. All of Maintenance and Administration are still out, but my supervisor wants to invent projects to bring us back in.

Vermin King: So, essentially, what was so essential today?

squirmydad: I've been declared "Essential" for today only. Off to work, paper-crafting tonight then.

wyvern: Anecdotally, a number of people seem to have been ill with a protracted 'flu-like illness since last winter (NOT Covid-19). I had 'flu for two months from mid December myself. Unhelpfully, my symptoms included cough + fever, identical to Covid-19.

Vermin King: Best of luck with that, Coyotepunc. Being sick since 03/17, I can somewhat relate to your condition, but I don't have the worry of my kid having problems on top of my own. All the best, sir

alloydog: @coyotepunc - even at 30+, they still yer babies! Not that they appreciate being called that!

alloydog: Of course, it doesn't help if the mucus is in the trachea.

alloydog: old squirmydad mentioned fennel tea. If that sort of thing is not for you, or is hard to get, I saw a WHO video where they said to drink plenty of warm/hot drinks, such as tea, coffee, even milk, because it helps shift mucus from the throat to the stomach.

Coyotepunc: So it's going to be a long night of taking his temp every hour... he's 19 but still my baby

Coyotepunc: I've been dealing with a variety of covid-19 symtpoms since January, except for the fever (12% of cases have no fever.) My kid woke up with almost all the symptoms including high fever today.

squirmydad: Bag is handy, if you find it loose use the seeds, but then you need something like an infuser or it's a mess.

shep: most likely bag...

ignatious: just out of curiosity squimrydad, for the tea seed, frond, or bulb?

Vermin King: My friend Mike brought a sword to his church last night, but since he was there recording his sermon for today, he thought it would be okay

Vermin King: No, this is the first time I have heard of it

squirmydad: Have you tried fennel tea to ease some of your bronchial issues? I like it and it seems to help me.
Apr 5, 2020 12:14:56 GMT -9
Vermin King: But I should be good for at least another week before I will need to head out for restocking anything
