Error / Website certificate fixed

Quentin Christensen
 

Hi everyone,

As some of you may have noticed, there has been a problem over the last day accessing the http://addons.nvda-project.org/ and https://www.nvdacon.org/ websites and checking for addon updates etc.  We apologise for the issue (which was caused by an invalid certificate error).  We have replaced the old hamster with a new one who has all the correct paperwork*.  All services should be back to normal now.  Please do let us know if you have any other problems though.

Kind regards

Quentin.

*Note: no hamsters were harmed in the fixing of the web certificates.

Re: Is anyone else having trouble with VFO Group?

Michelle's Home Emails
 

Hi there

Michelle Stevens here,

Because I am Deafblind myself, a Focus display is important for me
To access the my computer and the iphone.

Sometimes I get my case worker from Deafblind organisation to stir things up.
Start emailing everyday and calling on the tty would be a good idea.
A call to the CEO would not go astray.

Good luck

Michelle Stevens.

It seems that as well as taking away the xml code that webie used for

channel program listings, the pages have changed as well as for those in the

uk like myself it was relatively easy to find a show, go to the page say yes

to tv licence, and then select ways to watch and switch on the AD. NOw when

you go to say yes to the tv licence, it immediately plays and one cannot

even hear if the selection is there. One assumes its somewhere but either

nvda/firefox is not seeing it or they have completely screwed it up.

Has anyone here in the UK managed to watch  programme with AD since last

week when it changed without warning?

 

Is it just me or is it bust.

Re: eror when checking for updates in the windos 10 esencials add on.

Gene
 

The error message must be caused by the certificate problem that has been discussed in another thread.  The add ons site, for whatever reason, causes browsers to display an invalid certificate error.  This is another symptom.

I have heard about Infra recorder and Try It, but I can't copy CDs from that.

Re: But, this site doesn't countains virus

 

I noticed this to.

I wasn't going to mention it because expired certs are usually refreshed within a day or so but if its still round an invalid certifficate could mean a hack.

Its why the error is there you can safely put an acception though it would be better if the cert can be refreshed asap but then it probably can or is by now so who knows.

No its not, the site cert is happiled expired.

An old certificate warning has nothing to do with malware. Sites have certificates that tell the browser that the site is the actual site, not a counterfeit site that has taken over the name. There is no problem with the certificate for the NVDA site. Use the go ahead option the browser gives you to use it anyway. I'm not sure how to correct the problem you are having. Make sure both the time and date are correct on your computer. the most common reason to get such warnings is if your time and/or date are wrong. Aside from that, I don't have the technical knowledge to tell you other things to try to correct it.

Re: Good software to burn not only data, but audio CD also and DVD

Dean Masters <dwmasters15@...>
 

You can also download and install this software from

www.ninite.com

just check the checkbox for the program then enter on the button that says get your ninite

Anotherbrowser screen will come up and the download interface. Select run and Ninite will come up where you can read what is being installed. When it is finished you can then tab to the close button and hit enter.

OK!
I would like to explain You.
First link to download this site, when I have pressed It, there was
message, that Eset blocked this site.
Nextly, after download this installation from another link It says, that
there is potential endangere of My computer, again by Eset.
Ofcourse, software is installed successfully, but....
Question is, really It countains viruse, or this is also starting of
Eset drama?
Thank You!

Gene,

          Just for clarity, as I see I dropped a phrase, I want to make clear that you have never failed to do the reading necessary to bring yourself fully up to speed before participating on a thread into which you've just dropped in once it's already in progress.

           My last post now reads, to me, as though I'm saying that you never bother to read to get yourself fully up to speed, which is absolutely untrue and I would never say such a thing.  I can rely on you to have done the required background reading in all cases and, in some of those cases, there're a lot of holes that have been left in the context that do require clarification by the original poster(s).
