The Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase now has its own DuckDuckGo !bang

As a person who uses the DuckDuckGo search engine and The Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase on a regular basis, I was surprised to see that there was no !bang that would allow me to do a direct search of the wiki.

Because of this, I made a simple submission which has now been approved -- the inclusion of the !hak bang (short for Hydrogenaudio Knowledgebase) within the DuckDuckGo search engine. Try it yourself by heading over to DuckDuckGo and typing the following:

!hak foobar2000

You should be taken to this page as a result. I hope you guys find this as useful as I do.

Thanks for the support!

DDG itself is interesting too, for various reasons, both favouring the user and helping to escape the ever-more-present Google.

Thx +1 from me. The !bang feature has made DuckDuckGo the default search engine in all browsers on all plattforms, replacing the need to manually set up search keywords for dictionaries, movie reviews and - if needed - Google's services (!g for search, !maps for maps, ...).
