Time to retire Kryptos@home - SECURITY ISSUE w/web site

It's Dead.... I think it is TIME TO REITRE THE PROJECT! See my reasons below.

1) No web site for 3+ months [last contact > 2021-07-01 16:00:03 UTC] and now there is a SECURITY ISSUE with the web site SSL CERTIFICATE:
Your connection is not private
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from www.kryptosathome.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
This server could not prove that it is www.kryptosathome.com; its security certificate is from garoa.club. This may be caused by a misconfiguration or an attacker intercepting your connection.
2) Seems the website has indeed been re-registered to different owners:

Thanks for the heads up. I've removed the home page URL for the project.

In addition the project was automatically flagged as inactive by my update scripts.
