Description

I'm sitting on a train going from Toronto to Montreal and it has free power and free wifi. Pretty aces, right? But the wifi blocks YouTube and the like (just from the domain name used), and Amazon S3 is one of the domains it blocks (to prevent people downloading large files and consuming throughput, I assume). Because the CSS and such on Scrumbugs is served on S3 (which I'm surprised it needs, but cool), I can't access it.

You should see about using a CNAME or whatever so people can hit scrumbugs on **** wifi networks that block hosts.

Note: this bug was actually SUPPOSED to be submitted on Saturday morning, when I was really on a train. There was some glitch and I'm just submitting it now, so I need to provide the disclaimer that when this bug was REALLY submitted I was on my sofa at home and not on a train. Don't wanna seem like I'm frontin'.
You clearly be trippin', not frontin' ;)

I should be moving scrumbugs to new mozilla-based hosing soon, which will allow me (unlike Heroku) to serve the static media directly, thus solving this issue.
