Recent SLAC updates/fixes

SLAC had several updates lately and for some introduced new error messages. In most cases, it means that things weren't working fine for those users before either, but an error wasn't shown until these updates.

The most commonly reported message is "Network packet couldn't be queued, a firewall may be blocking the SLAC connection." - and the reason is probably your firewall/antivirus. That means that something is blocking communication to either 62.75.171.19 or 217.172.179.171. If you are getting this error message, try using \sl_netstatus command after a few minutes of running ET and report the output to me if you see a number larger than 100 in the "left to be sent" line.

The "lag on vid_restart, /quit, map change, etc" problem should now be fixed as well.

If you are getting kicked from slac addon servers for timeout related messages, do the \sl_netstatus stuff from above and report if needed.

Screenshots are back! They shouldn't be causing lags anymore and will be taken 24/7. If you find a screenshot showing a cheat, please report via IRC until a report interface is implemented on the site.

And another thing, people have asked me why is there a donate button on the site. I am not being paid by SL anymore, but they will continue covering the server and similar costs. It's not mandatory, but if you'd like to support me as the developer, you're more than welcome to donate to valsimot@ymail.com via either PayPal or Moneybookers (same address).

Some of the things that willl soon be implemented:
* yawn-like search functionality by nicks used on the server
* screenshot report buttons
* more detections
* after all this is tested, new games will be supported as well

Maybe implement a feature like yawn had, to link crossfire acc's to SL accs?
Other than that good shit!
* yawn-like search functionality by nicks used on the server
