Are you using Chrome? If yes, is there a circle with and i in the middle at the beginning of the address bar? if so, click on it. do you see a messages that begins with "Your connection to this site is not secure" . This is what I see on my browser and it is telling me that I do not have an HTTPS connection which is a secure connection to this web site. One of the site admins can probably explain better.

The "not secure" warning is a new feature brought out by google in the last couple of weeks. It is there if a web site is a HTTP page and not a HTTPS page. From my understanding of it, It makes it sound alot worse then it is, normally the HTTP page is less secure if you are using a WI-FI hotspot. Either way we are working on updating our entire network to HTTPS, I don't have an exact date but you should see it change over the coming months.
