Hey every web browser
What I want is: type in URI, load page at that URI

Please don't ignore my port or protocol definition

Holy shit

What did you try again, whippersnapper?
charred.obscuritus.ca:8080

Which it decided to load via https

So I sent it to
https://charred.obscuritus.ca:8080

And it decided to honour HSTS on non-standard ports (which is wrong)

I had to do http://charred:8080 which did load

And this is all caused because charred is a ruby app and so using Sinatra (a web server) to run itself, rather than the two obvious things of:
Running via a multiplexed webserver which can handle ssl upgrades and name based virtual hosting
Not using http and using a protocol more suited to running a character generator (which, to be fair doesn't exist, CHARGEN is sadly not well-suited to running a character generator for an RPG, but I can dream)
