I haven't blogged before about the Java applets expiration issue for Domino servers.  Basically, as has been reported on many other Lotus community blogs, the security certificate for some Java applets expires on May 18, 2009.  Anyway, as per this technote, you can download the fixes from IBM Fix Central.  Some had noticed that Fix Central was scheduled for downtime this weekend due to a server relocation, but a smart-thinking colleague caught the potential conflict this morning and the scheduled outage has been cancelled.  I've just received this:

Earlier today, there was a notice on the IBM Fix Central web site indicating: "There is a planned server outage on Sun, 17 May 2009 from 1 a.m. to 10 a.m. Central Daylight Time (CST)." Due to the need for customers to download important fixes, most notably for the applet certificate issue documented in the following technote,

Title: Knowledge Collection: Re-signed Java applets for Lotus Domino, Sametime, Quickr, and QuickPlace (May 2009)
Doc #: 1386146
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=899&uid=swg21386146

The planned server outage has been cancelled. IBM Fix Central will remain up through the weekend and next week. The outage will be scheduled for some future date.

Thanks to several sharp-eyed bloggers for getting me back to my computer at 6 PM on a Friday to clear this up, and to Scott Vrusho for being at his computer when I needed the answer!
