    Yea it looks like some drama queen who wanted more visitors to their site went and changed a few words then hundreds of blogs copy pasta the overly dramatic story, but it is not much different than what is posted here except without the added title FBI will shutdown the Internet on March 8

    I dono you do the math o_O But yes thank you for clearing this up for us JRViejo :thumb:

    I got that info from the F-Secure blog where they added an update to their article saying a court in the US "has granted the FBI permission to host its substitute DNS servers for an additional 120 days".

    I think Win 8 Metro was designed on one of those. You'll be OK until sundown I suppose. Then it will be time to get the candles out.
