Hello. I'm Samuel Hodgkins. I'm some random person from Britain that isn't particularly interesting or special but I do have some interests. There's #computing - usually with #linux or another *nix (and some interest in #retrocomputing ), #programming - such as #smalltalk or #lisp and sometimes #gaming. I have a rarely updated site that mostly serves as a blog but is also a wiki. I like Toad from Mario and this is shown in my custom avatar.
well there goes Germany's power.

The border-gorey parts of Austria-Hungary declared independence as the Kingdom of Romania. In other news, the Ottoman Empire lost a Crusade - Greece now belongs to Sardinia-Piedmont, including Constantinople/Istanbul. Their empire seems to be in decline, especially in light of the recent successful independence revolt.
oh god austria-hungary and germany just split into independent realms. the border gore is *horrifying*

Let me explain NXDOMAIN hijacking:
Say for example, you mistype a domain in your browser's URL bar, normally it would give you 'name not found' or similar error message or depending on how smart your browser is, redirect to a user configured search engine.
With NXDOMAIN hijacking, that typo would result in you landing on a search page provided by your ISP with ads on it which they make money from.
