[time-nuts] Administrivia: febo.com SSL certificate

If your browser has been throwing security warnings or errors when you 
try to access the web server at febo.com (for example, the list 
archives), that problem should now be fixed.

I was using an SSL certificate issued by StartSSL, a company that has 
sort of shot themselves in the foot due to their ownership structure and 
lack of transparency.  A few months ago the major browser vendors have 
stopped recognizing certs issued by StartSSL, and their browsers now 
give warnings when they encounter a StartSSL cert.

There's no evidence that my certificate was vulnerable or was ever 
compromised, but I've now changed over to certificates from a 
widely-supported group called LetsEncrypt, and you shouldn't see any 
further security warnings.
