Goolag redo

Okay, so I got the description of Goolag wrong. Mostly, it's my fault for not realizing that I'm supposed to download a binary executable from a known hacker site (yeah, that's a smart move). That from a page where the main focus is a search bar and the download link is formatted so that it appears as a "feature" on a page titled "Goolaq".

A little bit of design knowledge (instead of "adapting" formats) and visitors might not make the incorrect assumption. Mixing what is supposed to be a legitimate link for a download into what is supposed to be a parody leads to confusion such as this. It's like your pastor telling a dirty joke during a sermon. At best, it leaves people scratching their heads.

Again, my apologies for the confusion, especially to Corey Nachreiner.

To the guy calling himself "ass", I won't "moderate your comment up". You've yet to say anything constructive. I've posted this retraction instead. Please realize that I've never claimed to be a "l33t h4x0r" like you. In any case, from this humble n00b, thank you for your input!
