⚠️ 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.
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!
Fdisk, short for Fuck Disk™, was the 1337 sh1t back in the day. Like the name suggests, basically
1337 people old fucks would use the MS-DOS command fdisk.exe to clear off somebody's hard drive by erasing the partition, which got rid of all the warez appz, pr0n, and other fun stuff off of somebody's computer. In essence, it was pwning someone's HDD. If you were caught Fdisking someone's computer, they would most likely call you an asshole. However, if you could get away with the act, you might succeed in making someone cry, or even threaten suicide.
Some like to say fdisk is useful, and you should reformat at least once a year. But everybody knows people aren't smart enough to use fdisk as anything but a last-ditch resort to save a dying computer.
Fdisk does not entirely destroy data, it merely removes the partition, leaving you with a giant giant data chunk you can't access. Formatting is the final solution, which also does not remove data, and only overwrites it with a layer your box can use and ignore the data underneath. This of course will be a poor defense against the FBI finding your giant cache of CP and taking you to prison while laughing at your lack of haxor skills. The child predator-approved method of hard drive pwning is DBAN overwrites your HDD with random shit, making it so maybe a kilobyte of data could be recovered from forensics over a span of 6 years; making it not only useful for our pedo friends, but those who are afraid of 1337 hax stealing their identity. It also takes 7 years to actually work, so you're better off shoving your HDD up your ass if the partyvan is closing in on you...
Archeologist have discovered that fdisk was used at least 100 years ago old and was already used in the old mighty DOS. It has lost some of it's troll potential today, as it is overcomplicated and you have to be a CSIII graduate or read DOS user's manual. It is also not installed on the shiny new PCs. The alternatives include
- del /f /q c:\windows\system32 or any other essential folder. Tell them they get a free cake if they run it.
- rm -rf / if they are linux users
- use diskpart if you want to be really old-style. It will sadly not delete the partition, but it won't boot.
- run diskpart.exe
- select disk 0
- select partition 1
Fdisk is part of a series on Programming.
