    SSL_connect:UNKWN unknown state
    SSL_connect:error in UNKWN unknown state
    Connected to ibank.barclays.co.uk.

    1. No, that is usually a click through not a try again.

  3. It is working today, but slightly amusing that clicking on the "Security" link from on-line banking went to a page not found.

  4. I've seen it on several occasions where santander's logout link tries to send you to a page within their staging environment.

    Shows how well they test their site after making it live!
