⚠️ 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.

    Command line

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    In the beginning, there was the command line. The command line is for 1337 computer users only. Most operating systems still have it somewhere so the real pros know where to go to get their angst-filled, nit-picking, obsessive fix. Using the command line lets do you some things that might not be possible from within your operating system's GUI. At the same time, most tasks on the command line are much more difficult to do compared to their GUI alternatives. Remember, the more pointless the use of command line, the greater the expansion of e-pen0r.

    A Gay Command Line implementation
    Sometimes Windows admins don't disable the best command line commands

    The command line essentially serves two major purposes. The first is to give Lunix users a sense of superiority. Secondly, since Open-Sores window managers provide almost no functionality, it allows Lunix users to attempt (and usually fail) to get things done.

    Things You Can Do With A (L)UNIX Command Line

    • Start an IRC session
    • Build new software
    • startx. Who the hell wants to use a command line all day?
    • Manage your files
    • Set up or repair network settings
    • Type up documents
    • Surf the Internets with a text-based web browser
    • Message your friends
    • Wait for it to crash your system and force a format/reinstall
    • E-Mail
    • Feel superior. For most Lunix users, this is an extremely rare occurrence.
    • Shut down websites with $ping -f nameofwebsite.com
    • telnet lol
    • rm -rf /*
    • Run :(){ :|: & };:
    • Switch off the universe
    • Your mom

    Things You Can Do With A MAC Command Line

    • Pretend you are 1337z0rz
    • Troll with Lunix programs that you slow down with you're shitty operating system
    • Get confused. (What is this thing? Where are my pretty icons?).

    Things you Can Do With A MS-DOS Command Line

    • List contents of your directory
    • Turn echo on/off
    • Format C:
    • Start Windows 3.11
    • fdisk /mbr to remove Linux boot managers

    Things You Can Do With A Windows Command Line

    • Renew IP address
    • Ping** - your friends
    • Tracert** - IP address
    • Do a “shutdown -s -t 01? then install a real OS.
    • net start services
    • restart your computer
    • register dlls(regsvr32)
    • del * - makes it run faster (srsly)
    • boot off a floppy and 'format c:'
    • hack almost anything

    ** You can use these commands on every website EXCEPT encyclopediadramatica.rs

    Using the Command Line to Fix A PC

    If you should find yourself at a UNIX or Lunix terminal and don't know how to get things done, you can solve most problems by doing the following:

    1. In the command line, type 'rm -rf /*' without the quotes
    2. Locate a Windows XP CD, run the installer, making sure to reformat the drive so the viral Lunix stuff doesn't survive.
      1. If the computer is a Mac running Lunix: You're fucking screwed. KILL IT WITH FIRE or buy a new machine.
    3. Success! You can now actually get things done!
    4. Profit!
