    OT: Blackout!

    I just noticed Wikipedia and Google have already gone "black" in protest of SOPA. Definitely kind of weird.

    Yeah, screw SOPA and what is the other one? PIPA?
    There's just a lot wrong with those bills, one being the DNS modifications. That would be like Microsoft asking the post office to delete particular addresses from their database and never ship to/from there because suspected criminals at the address are being shipped blank CD's used to copy Windows 7.

    Something like that.

    Here's a good explanation of how these bills pave the way toward internet censorship:

    Craigslist and wikipedia have also joined the protesting.

    You can use Wikipedia via Google's cached button.
    In case you really need to find use Wikipedia to find important facts like Chuck Norris' real name.
