I was pumped when I got my Quake Live notice...

Quick games of Quake at lunch.

Nope. Apparently although it runs in a browser it does use some of the old odd ports so at work it's blocked by our firewall.

Oh well I can try it at home!

Get home - fire up Ubuntu - login - and get a message Quake Live isn't supported on my operating system.
