Wow. I better watch myself in future ;)

Here's the ironic thing. I did a search in MSN LiveSearch and that's the link it gave me :lol:

Its because its:

https

Google is not encrypted, it would do the same in Firefox.

Or it's because the user reset their bios and hasn't yet entered the correct date/time.

Firefox does the same.

And it doesn't think it's a scam, it's warning you about the SSL being incorrect. Although Google might want to fix this... google.com HTTPS redirects to HTTP. I don't understand why they don't offer a secure version of Google, because some people are actually paranoid.

No. https://www.google.com/ redirects properly, but https://google.com results in an SSL certificate error.

That's odd... I remember being able to connect to Google as https for an entire session while I was at a hotel for a weekend. I could even get to https://youtube.com, but now that doesn't seem to work at all. At least Gmail still uses SSL. :)

i bet the whole thing is just because the client is authenticating server certificates on a computer whose cmos is set incorrectly in the bios and reporting a date too far in the past.

Edit: i just realized I'v already posted this :) lol

Speaking of bad ssl certificates, has anyone else been driven crazy by the myriad of those out there? Firefox 3 is really casting a light on this problem :/

Haha, the college I went to bought their certificate for www.webmail.<domain>.edu. Everytime I went to webmail.<domain>.edu on a new machine I got mad and was reminded how poorly they had planned that one.. I didn't realize Google had done that as well :)
