Internet Explorer is blocking some of the PBS data tonight - I get a message saying it is blocking information with security certificate errors.  This has never happened to me on the site before.  Is it some problem with my computer or are others suddenly having some of site blocked?  Thanks, Katie

what part of the sites are you getting the certificate errors showing?  Usually a certificate error is on the server side (pbs side) but most compaines keep up to date on their certs so that you don't get the error.

I haven't seen that today, but was having some issues earlier with pop ups while I was printing mailing labels.  The messages were saying DC not available for that address.  Then a few minutes later it would print DC for that same address.    Maybe some techi tweeking today?

The PBS security certificate is for https://secure.paperbackswap.com, and it's good until 12/7/2013.

If you're seeing certificate errors, a couple of things could be happening. You could be trying to access https://www.paperbackswap.com. This won't work. Only the login page is secure, and you can only access it via the secure.paperbackswap.com domain.

It could also be that you have the date incorrect on your computer's clock. If your computer clock is set to a date after 12/7/2013, you would get these errors.
