To add to what I just posted above. I am logged in still, and just tried to go back into the game. It failed to load the game as it could not establish the secure connection, and I got the blank page with the un happy face in the middle again. I am not in the mood to leave my house again to switch the connection to get back into the game…LOL.
My guess is as soon as I close this browser page I will also lose this connection until I am able to go out to a new connection to reset it.
