⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️

There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.

Æ Roadmap

  • Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically)
  • Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
  • Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
  • Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
  • .onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
  • CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
  • Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
  • Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)

  • Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.

    If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.

    You can also email me via [email protected]

    Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.

    Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021! - aediot

    The most powerful number in the world, but not the universe (see 42). This series of hexadecimal shit is illegal in the United States, but not in the rest of the world, as they have sane laws (meaning that this number > the First Amendment), and single-handedly brought Digg to its knees like a dominatrix. In the form of a hexadecimal string.

    This incredibly boring line of bullshit is basically a code that will unlock every HD-DVD in existence. Fascinating stuff, I know. Apparently some genius hacker, Arzenami, made it and decided to post it on an aspie forum. This sparked an internet circle jerk of panic and rampant nerds getting boners trying the code out and spreading the good word. Everyone keeps posting it everywhere in an attempt to look like an internet tough guy. Google "09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0" for moar info. This basically goes to show that no matter how hard the motion picture industry tries to prevent piracy, they fail.

    How he did it

    To cut a long and boring story short, what Arzenami did was make the completely un-remarkable assertion that whether you watch or rip the DVD, you'll have to decode it; and to decode it, you need the key. Armed with this, he realized also that to use the key, any software that played HD-DVD's would have to load it into the computer's RAM before it was used in the decryption. What he did then was simply to identify the part of the RAM that the HD-DVD playing software was using, and he then forced a dump to disk of that area of the RAM. Viewing that memory dump as text, he simply read through all of it for this string of hex– And thus did he find it, and lo he looked upon it, and saw that it was good... so he shared it around, like AIDS, except it's something you'd actually want.

    But no one gives a shit anymore

    Because Blu-ray won the format war faggots. Enjoy your useless key. In fact Blu-ray and HD-DVD use same encryption system called AACS, and HD-DVD being pwned means Blu-ray is pwned as well. Now that's how you can download high definition pr0ns. Next time you fap, don't forget to show some respect to those hackers.
