It was reported recently that SourceForge has changed the way they
allow subscriptions to their email lists. So one guy with an old setup
suddenly couldn't subscribe because his (old Opera) web browser
couldn't validate certificates (or something weird like that). And
then I went way down the rabbit hole trying to help him find a "lite"
Linux liveCD for his old Athlon computer, but it doesn't sound like
there's a perfect answer since even Firefox requires SSE2 these days.
