foxed it! 
Good 
 
 
Sprtii, please unbreak the frontpage news script. 
 
I just got a new computer running Windows 7, and the Quake Injector doesn't open correctly. It's now a .zip file instead of a javascript app. Am I doing something wrong? 
 
Nevermind i'm very stupid and didn't even have java installed. Carry on 
 
@spirit ...

Do you know where this archive can be found?

git://gitorious.org/quakec-v1-01-clean/quakec-v1-01-clean.git

Some Googling seemed to suggest you may actually have archived some different repositories.

Neither gitorious mirrors seem to work nor does archive.org seem to have that backed up (or if it is, it is inaccessible).

More of a curiosity than anything, that even if you don't have it the odds of not being able to find a living copy of Clean QC 1.01 is pretty low. 
 
what did you google? :P first hit for me..
https://gitlab.com/quakec-v1-01-clean/quakec-v1-01-clean 
 
also - spirit's archiving thread on insideqc: http://forums.insideqc.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5531

In the first post he has a list of repos archived. There is some cleanqc stuff from gitorious but not that specific repo. I assume the one I linked is it though? 
(sorry For Smart-ass Reply) 
 
 
Yeah I Googled but apparently not that one. ;-)

I don't care about smart ass replies, haha.

Spirit is one of the best suppliers of smart ass replies around. 
 
(It doesn't help that entire insideqc site is like excluded from Google and all the search engines ... I read that repo thread within the last few weeks but when I trying to find the above an hour ago I didn't even think about that thread.) 
 
An error was encountered
Error: Unable to connect to MySQL and select database. MySQL reported: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2). 
 
I blame sock. 
 
Quaddicted's https certificate is expired. 
Yes 
So donate that magnificent Spirit some of your last five pence, so he can continuate that site thanks that terrific certificate price hunter! 
 
It's not the price of the certificates I would imagine, but the hassle of mucking about with them every single year. 
 
I've been told that Spirit was busy with moving houses lately, so this may have something to do with that. Just add an exception for Quaddicted. It's not like it's some random virus-riddled russian site, anyway. 
 
Just add an exception for Quaddicted

Not all browsers support that.

A good read for you:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Strict_Transport_Security

HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is a web security policy mechanism which helps to protect websites against protocol downgrade attacks and cookie hijacking. It allows web servers to declare that web browsers (or other complying user agents) should only interact with it using secure HTTPS connections,[1] and never via the insecure HTTP protocol. HSTS is an IETF standards track protocol and is specified in RFC 6797.

Browser listed on that page:

Chromium and Google Chrome since version 4.0.211.0[28][29]
Firefox since version 4;[30] with Firefox 17, Mozilla integrates a list of websites supporting HSTS.[20]
Opera since version 12[31]
Safari as of OS X Mavericks[32]
Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 when KB 3058515 is installed (Released on Windows Update in June 2015)[33]
Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 support

Short version: It's protection against malware and spying tools, etc. "Exceptions" are a backdoor. HSTS is eliminates the backdoor. 
 
I went to read that page but I don't understand much of this technical stuff.

"Exceptions" are a backdoor. HSTS is eliminates the backdoor.
My Firefox is up-to-date (v50.0) and the exception works, so I guess Quaddicted doesn't use HSTS (or I misunderstood what you were saying).
By adding an exception, do I create a risk for the website or just me? 
 
I think Spirit is gone from func_ and maybe from Quaddicted, for a while. I can bug him about the cert but has anyone else already done that? Don't want to pile on him. 
 
If he's gone from Quaddicted, is there anyone to maintain the site in his absence? Besides the certificate issue, the new map releases are piling up and not being added to the site. 
 
Hmm... I thought it was possible to automate LetsEncrypt renewals? Or was I mistaken? Perhaps something has crashed at the site. 
Spirit Gone From Func? 
ayy lmao! 
 
Cert seems OK now for me, everyone else cool?
