After hearing about it a couple times from reddit and youtube, I decided to seek out an issue of Meme Insider. I immediately fell in love with the goof.
The magazine is such a quality product that I wanted to help the website reach the same high bar.
For reference here’s what it looked like before:
I tried to preserve the essential content elements while reframing everything in a less confusing way. I think so far everyone is happy with the result.

I decided to start using my wordpress blog as a way to document my side projects, but that made me realize I hadn’t documented quite a few. Hence these very late posts.
After reading a bit about
HyperDev Gomix Glitch, I really wanted to take it for a test spin. I had been reading up on Vue JS when the popular app radd.it (and its creator) started going through some rough times.
I decided to take my Christmas break to build a basic replacement that kept true to what I liked best about radd.it. But with more emojis.
For me this really just enforces my belief that hardcore Excel users are just crazy programmers in denial.
Now this is motorsport.

It’s a little old now, I’m surprised I hadn’t blogged about it before now, but I feel it’s still an interesting little exploit to mention.
From my naive understanding of the exploit, it masks itself as a Java-esque app and trys to gain port listening access surreptitiously.
The novel part is that once it can, it searches Reddit for a partial MD5 hash based on the current date, which would return a list of ips published by a former /u/vtnhiaovyd on a former r/minecraftserverlists.
These IPs are of course C&C servers, from which the worm gets further commands.
It’s all been long cleaned up, but I still find it an amusing and novel little worm.
Such an interesting interpretation.
I feel both smarter for having read it, and a little bit dumb for not realizing any of it after initial watching the clip.
I can not modern art, apparently.
