We recently bought a Philips DVP 3880 DVD player to put in our daughter’s room. I accidentally turned Disc Lock on (because I navigate too fast for my own good sometimes) and I could not play any discs. There is no default code listed in the manual. Fortunately, I found the code, 136900, via a blog post on RejZoR’s little secrets.
Despite GoDaddy’s early dismissive attitude about the backlash and naysayers of said backlash, the situation fire-balled into a controversy that GoDaddy just could not ignore. Over a week ago, GoDaddy announced that it is no longer supporting the Stop Online Piracy Act. Even the initial support was enough for people like myself to transfer away from GoDaddy.
Other hosting and domain name companies came forward with special offers to entice people away from GoDaddy, while pointing out that they did not support SOPA.
Even though the official boycott day was the 29th of December, I moved my domains and hosting away from GoDaddy during Christmas weekend. Both my hosting and my domains are with other companies now. There was some downtime for Gophanet and my HTML5 test page but, everything is up and running. While others have experienced delays while having their domains transferred, I could not tell if my transfers were delayed because of the Christmas holiday.
Apparently many domains have been transferred from GoDaddy however, it should be pointed out that they are the top domain name service. They have daily transfers in, numbering in the thousands. It could be some weeks before we can get a picture of just how much business GoDaddy lost and there has been some confusion over just what counts as a transfer out (read the comments as well).
Now… what to do about the NFL?
