How to access Wikipedia during the blackout!
« on: January 19, 2012, 04:32:15 AM »
I know this is a bit late... but for those of you who need to access Wikipedia before midnight tonight...

For students needing Wikipedia tonight (before midnight) here is a little trick I just discovered on HOW to access a Wikipedia page without getting redirected to the blackout page.

[SOPA SUPPORTER EH?]

Please Tweet this, Facebook it or whatever! It might be of some help to a student or two before midnight (given they need it right now).

OR you can google what your looking for, click on your "wikilink" and then stop the page from loading by pressing the "x" by the address bar.

That's the same exact method...

Doesn't matter now. The blackout is over.
