How bizarre! My phone’s using WiFi at a motel, and long-pressing the malformed “inconsolata” link (to open a new window) leads to a level3.com search page – purportedly level3 is the DNS provider and this is their way of “helping.”

To quickly check if I’d been hijacked I opened a new window (mobile Chrome browser) and entered a random word in the address box…yup, still hitting Google search. But then I entered “inconsolata” in the address bar – the complete term, didn’t let autocomplete do its thing – and once again got ferried to level3.com search.

So, long story short (“Too late!”) – Broken link, Rob ; -)

I am inconsolable.

Original typeface in the film was DejaVu Sans Mono though.

I can’t seem to do anything with the Wikipedia one - am I missing something?
