Out of the Blue

With the battle still raging over whether the U.S. will pass its proposed SOPA or PIPA legislation (the former of which seems to have been mortally wounded, but the latter of which is still in play), there is a movement afoot to protest this with a web blackout tomorrow, supported by sites like imgur, reddit, Wikipedia, and more. I can't say I know what such a blackout will accomplish, but I do know the draconian aspects of these bills are unsettling to say the least, so unless something changes drastically in the meantime, my plan is for this site to participate in the blackout. Apologies in advance for the outage should this come to pass.

Thanks for supporting the cause, but you've pretty much taken out the highlight of my day and evening. Ah well, a greater cause is being served.
