⚠️ 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



    Shell

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    This is about a shell in computer science. If you are looking for one of the components of shells and cheese, you will not find it here, retard.

    A shell on a computer allows the end user to communicate with the kernel of the computer, and in some operating systems, the devil. There are two known types of shells, graphical (i.e. Windows) and command-line (i.e. UNIX). The difference between the two is that graphical shells tend to fuck up alot and BSOD quite a bit, while command-line style allows you to totally fuck up your system beyond repair. This shit is so complex Bill Gates decided to dump it for a graphical-based interface. The one you are using right now, unless you aren't on a PC. Naw, you can still use command.com, which is not a fucking website you idiot.

    Here is a list of different shells:

    UNIX Shells:

    • sh
    • bsh
    • csh
    • ksh
    • bash
    • zsh
    • sfdl;jaajs;ldfal;ekb

    Windows Shells:

    • PowerShell
    • Explorer (they call the GUI a "shell" in windows-speak for some reason.)


    Basic Info

    In the beginning computers got their input from different means, such as throwing switches, paper tapes, or punch cards. After a while the natural idea of adding a typewriter was added to make input easier. This gave raise to the need for software to handle input processing. Unfortunately, it led to the creation of the shell. The shell is a device that allows access to the operating system, and thus, makes it really easy to fuck up your computer while showing off to your 1337 friends how much of a hacker you are. To make the shell work at its best, always run it in root. The most common shell is bash,a GNU version of the old unix sh. Bash is what you most likely use if you run a linux box. In a Windows machine, the GUI is the shell, and most things such as handling files are done there. All in all, run minix.
