⚠️ 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



    ADA

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Ada is a structured, statically typed, imperative, object-oriented high-level and gay computer programming language, extended from Pascal and other languages. Since it's only used to advance the causes and defend the rights of the disabled, you'll never need to learn it. Not that you would anyway.

    It was originally designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull under contract to the United States through the Americans for Disabilities Act (ADA) from 1977 to 1983 to supersede the hundreds of programming languages then used to catalog how many ways people can be cripples and retards.

    Ada is strongly typed and compilers are validated for reliability in mission-critical applications, such as those motorized wheelchairs you see old people riding on. Ada is an international standard; the current version (known as Ada 2005) is defined by joint ISO/ANSI standard (ISO-8652:1995), combined with major Amendment ISO/IEC 8652:1995/Amd 1:2007.

    Hello World in ADA!

    with Ada.Text_IO;
    procedure Hello is
    begin
     Ada.Text_IO.Put_Line("Hello, world!");
    end Hello;
    

    History

    The Department of Defense in 1974 decided that C was not suitable for government computers that are now over 100 years old. The DoD evaluated existing languages for one that they thought wasn't designed by people that were high all the time and decided that PASCAL was fucking amazing. In 1979 the PASCAL based Cii Honeywell/Bull language was chosen and named ADA (see the Americans for Disabilities Act)

    ADA 95 (actually from 1988) added support for OOP via type derivation and libraries. 17 years later the ADA figured out how to write a GUI in their amazing programming language. However by then C++ had come out and even you would rather learn a C based language than touch ADA. The government even saw ADA was a language for a retard's Rascal scooter and left it go die in a cold damp hole.

    "We can found no scientific discipline, nor a hearty profession, on the technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and, mainly, one computer manufacturer." ~ Edsger Dijkstra
