Yeah, looked like they're just catching up to the 21st century and trying to install an SSL certificate (httpS), that's all.

People still go there? Haven't been to TOF in 3 years or more.

The self appointed expat intelligentsia of Cambodia sure do run a shit show of a website. I logged on recently and had to wipe the cobwebs off my screen.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

So, they're (finally!) trying to create a SSL-certificate? If you prepare such a change right, the actual implementation should not take more than a few minutes.

Also, site upgrades or maintenance tasks are usually done when traffic is lowest, so after midnight. But, thinking about it, there's probably not a whole lot of difference in traffic on TOF.

It’s been a great resource for many over the years and we’re lucky to still have it. I hope it returns soon, and better than ever!
