I did as you suggested and here's the console output for the danluu link:

Unfortunately, this didn't seem to change very much for me (the majority of pages I was getting -5 on, I still do)

Thanks for the List, I'll have a look.

In the meantime, could you please:

 - run squeak from the terminal
 - change SqueakSSL>>initialize to the following:

        "Initialize the receiver"

        handle := self primitiveSSLCreate.
        self logLevel: 1.

 - use webclient to GET one of the URLs.

The stderr will show some information which may be helpful here.

Best regards
