An .htaccess to redirect every single http request to http://www.gamebeat.net/SOPA/ - with exclusions for the index.html in that subdirectory and the big ass image file linked in it.

A similar .htaccess was written for bbpix.com with exceptions for image files so they would still be served but no one could get to the actual uploader to upload anything new.

I briefly considered redirecting all image requests to an anti-SOPA one but figured that might piss people off... lol

Imgur did that yesterday You could see all the thumbnails, but that one anti-SOPA demotivator I threw on Facebook yesterday was what you got whenever you clicked an image.

I just got an email stating the FBI shutdown megaupload

The FBI shut down Thursday one of the world's most popular file-sharing websites, MegaUpload.com, and announced the arrest of four of the people behind it in a global crackdown against the suspected online pirates.

So, the front page still has the Anti-SOPA image, but a link directly to the messageboard still works.

I am way too excited about the upcoming RE movie and RE game. Plus, two more F&F movies down the road.

Not seeing that here - shouldn't be possible either since everything is as it was before.


I was going to surprise everyone by putting up the redesign I've been working on while the site was down. Unfortunately I discovered that I forgot to back it up during my last system douche.... yup. I was pissed...

I have this feeling that the government is just saying 'fuck it, we will do whatever we want' now... Sure, the Mega sites users had uploaded a fair bit of 'questionable material' but MegaUpload was just running a cyberlocker site... one of several that exist.

On the basis the US government used to shut down the Mega sites they could just as easily shut down any other host based on any of the content it has on it's servers. Theoretically YouTube could be shut down for the same thing - because someone has an AC/DC song in one of their videos and it's copyrighted.

Your web host could have it's servers siezed because some kid hosts documents that tell how to make a bomb. Or someone hosts an mp3 file...

Interesting times.

Exactly -- they saw the resistance to SOPA and PIPA and said "hey you guys, you know those things you were protesting didn't matter, right?" BAM, shut down Megaupload.

Watch Dropbox disappear next ...
