    Default Where is project guttemberg now? OOPS!

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get to www.guttemberg.org, and instead I get to a commercial
    site, http://www.aboveredirect.com/?dmn=guttenberg.org

    Is my FF broken?

    Have they been bought or something worse?

    [...]

    Ha, got it... it is gutemberg, only one "t". My bad. But I wonder...

    Right, I misstyped it again when writing this note. The thing is, this
    morning I started to type in the FF box "gut" and the history list
    instantly said "www.guttenberg.org". How nice, I thought, so I accepted,
    and got the hijacked false domain instead. :-/

    The history list has "tt" because it is not the first time I type that link
    wrong.

    It took me some minutes digging, and finding the correct link in the
    wikipedia, with only one "t".

    I hate "hijackers".
