Wikipedia Hacked by GNAA

Approximately around 10:45 PM Pacific Standard Time, Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) website was being hacked by GNAA (http://www.gnaa.us/)

Another Fellow WordPress Blogger actually got a screenshot of the hacked Wikipedia main page.

Wikipedia was actually fixing the page while it was being hacked.

In the meantime, GNAA posts a press release that somewhat explain the reason behind Wikipedia hack.

The hack was a retalication against Wikipedia for GNAA article deletion.

At first glance, it seemed that it was merely a change made on the frontpage. But such changes could not be found in the page history. It is unknown if Wikipedia administrators/moderators could selectively delete the page history.

David X. Cohen Interview About Futurama Episodes

David X. Cohen talks about New Futurama, Fry and Leela relationship, and Hypnotoad.

ToyFare: So where are you right now in the production of the new season?

DAVID X. COHEN: We’re about halfway through the writing, but just getting started on the animation. One big decision we have not yet made is how, once again, to “end” the series—hopefully not for the last time.

ToyFare: How long after the last “series finale” does the new season take place? And what can we expect for the Fry and Leela relationship?

COHEN: When our story resumes, two long years have passed. As for the Fry/Leela relationship, we will be visiting that subject right away, so I refuse to tell you where it will lead on the grounds that I want you to buy the DVD.
