The Club's certificate expired at 12 seconds past midnight, and that's what's causing the error. I have flagged it to the office for them to renew it.

I have a similar warning, site not secure. Why would an organisation let their certificate expire?

Well whatever reason, it was fixed pretty quickly :D . More to the point, why do browsers confusingly tell a user that their clock is wrong, rather than reporting simply that the cert of the site that hey are visiting has expired, and why is it not up to the user to decide whether to proceed, rather than being dictated to by Chrome?

Windows XP and Google Chrome has been good to me for quite a few years , but recently has been bothering me more and more...looks like Bill Gates needs some more money from me...
