Hoo boy, is the US military dumb. You know .mil domain, used for sites like Pentagon.mil? Well, officially, no one but the US military is allowed to register .mil domains. That is, unless they use this page or this one, in which case absolutely anybody can register one, without even having to know a password. The news was broken by those clever people at the Register, who had the pages pointed out to them by a reader first (the pages are in the GoogleCache, for crying out loud...) but said "We are, of course, straining against every natural, journalistic impulse in our beings by neglecting to mention any useful search strings with which to find" the relevant pages. Fortunately, the kind-hearted denizens of Slashdot have absolutely no qualms about doing so. And neither do I. So have fun, and before they shut it down, register pentagon.mil to point at your home page.

Ah, go onnnnn.... you know you want to....
