Want to join the SOPA #blackout on January 18th? Running WordPress? Here's how to have your site black itself out, then turn itself back on, right on time:

$start_time = mktime(8,0,0,1,18,2012);
$end_time = mktime(20,0,0,1,18,2012);
$timenow = time();
if (($timenow > $start_time) && ($timenow < $end_time)) {
header("Location: http://americancensorship.org/infographic.html");
} else {
