⚠️ 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



    Encryption

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Encryption is the ultimate expression of hate and discontent towards the Government as it prevents them from protecting you from yourself. Government is your friend, therefore, using encryption prevents them from reading your emails, looking through your files, or reading your furry fan fiction that you've been working on for the past year.

    You encrypt a file or an email to ensure that only the appropriate receiver of the file or email is able to access it. Ways to decrypt the stuff is like putting in a password or using certificates.

    If you're Smart, which you are not, you would encrypt your drive with Bitlocker (for those running Windows, or add an encryption key to GRUB to encrypt your filesystems (for Neckbeard Operating Systems]].)

    Encryption protects you from sniffing attacks on the wire as all people would see is random gibberish. SSLv1.2 (the most widely used SSL implementation on the Internets) is not secure you moron, so don't even call SSL encryption anymore. If you want to protect yourself, use real encryption tools such as PGP or SSH to secure your VPN links to your stupid IRC server or use something with multi layer encryption such as Tor.

    Basically, encryption pisses everyone off, because if you do it right, people trying to pwn your crap, to the Government law enforcement and Intelligence agencies won't be able to look into your crap. Not that anyone cares about you but you can feel special by pretending that the NSA has taken a special interest in you. So encrypt your crap.

    Cryptography is commonly used by:

    • The FBI
    • Pedophiles
    • l33t h4x0rz
    • Websites
    • Programmers

    Normal people may use cryptography to protect their information from being stolen, or if they want to hide their CP collection.

    Types

    • Hashes
     Password123 -> SHA256 = 008c70392e3abfbd0fa47bbc2ed96aa99bd49e159727fcba0f2e6abeb3a9d601
    
    • Ciphers
     ABCDEFGHIJKL
      Turns into    BIKE -> NALW
     DNFPWEZXAJLR
    
    • Steganography
     Hiding Text or information within pictures.
    
    • ROT
     ABCDEFG -> ROT1 = BCDEFGH
