I know, I attempted to look some stuff up for homework a little after 9:00 (PST) and was greeted with sadness. I had totally forgotten about the whole thing and found out within an hour of Wikipedia going away, shows how reliant I am on it .

I can access wikipedia. It has a big black bar on top, with "The internet must remain free and open" and links about the SOPA stuff, but that's it.

Hey, SOPA is your party, so I think it's great Wiki only blacked out the English version.Just wish that there was something we could do on this side of the pond.
