Wikileaks Whack-a-Mole Workaround

Whooee! Well, friends an' foes, the cyber-censors have been doin' their dangedest to keep folks from seein' the Wikileaks website. The chased 'em from to to an' I dunno how many other domains. Here's one that's been workin' fairly consistently for a couplafew days now:

You see, fellers an' gals, the domain name system (DNS) is mostly a translator that takes a tuff-to-remember IP number like and calls it something like When you go directly to, you bypass the dns.

This ain't guaranteed to work forever. What is, for that matter? The IP number is attached to the host server. If wikileaks is chased off their existing server (it's happened once this week), then the IP number will change. So far, though, has worked through a few DNS changes brought about by the cyber censors and their whack-a-mole strategy to stifle free speech.

The truth is out there... and it'll set you free.

Kinda puts me of a mind of the Tehran riots and the shenanigans gettin' past the ayotola censors on the tubes and whatnot. Not like I'm saying WikiLeaks and those 'real' Eyeranian rioters have anything in common but come on!
