You're not seeing the Chinese BBS, Matt?

sorry, I'm a dumbass -- I didn't see that www.cockeyed was going to that other site (I just tried it w/o www and it worked). Sounds like his webhost has a botched host setup in apache.

As Rob says here:

There is a strange DNS problem that is displaying the Wuhan University webpage when attempting to reach http://www.cockeyed.com. A fix is in the works. Thank you to everyone who wrote to tell me about it.

More importantly, what should my revenge entail?

Should be fixed tonight, thanks to a new DNS provider.
