I've set up separate hosting for the flash proxy badge files at
https://flashproxy.bamsoftware.com/, and added redirects from the
https://crypto.stanford.edu/flashproxy/ URLs to there. Already deployed
badges should continue to work, given the redirects. I added a note to
the top of the home page saying that flash proxy is deprecated.
