Only, I could not get the secure login page to load. Not Available was the message. So I posted straight to LJ and sighed and logged off to go eat dinner.
This evening, just before this post, I logged onto the 'Net from home etc. ... except today, I connect to Dreamwidth fine, only now I can't connect to Flickr's login. Can't do it using either Firefox (usual browser) or IE. Not Available is the message. Site does not use encryption is the next message and this despite the URL including the wonderful bit of https in it.
Now, the next interesting fact in this troubleshooting process is, I can connect to my photos on Flickr. I can't log in to Flickr. Without logging in, I can't post my photos to this blog. In part because I've got another photo to upload for today. In larger part because I set up my Flickr account so that it isn't an option to post links to those photos for anyone but me -- when I'm logged in.
I've double-checked my firewall (I use AVG). Part of the reason I'm wondering about that is, yesterday I renewed the license. Apparently, however, nothing is changed.
Not quite that tech savvy. I've run my course of trouble-shooting this.
