Wikipedia SOPA blackout easily circumvented :)

Actually, it's not so much that the Wikipedia blackout is easily circumvented as that it can take effort to see it. To see the blackout required allowing 3 ( maybe 4 ) domains to provide javascript. No javascript gives a message about the blackout and about SOPA/PIPA and the normal english site full of functional articles and links.

Debian now 18

Thanks to Debian for 18 fantastic years.
