Meme Insider Redesign

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.

Super Media Collider Extravaganza for Reddit

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.

Mac Worm uses Reddit for botnet propagation

http://news.drweb.com/show/?i=5977&c=5&lng=en&p=0

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.

An interpetation of the Don Hertzfeldt Simpsons Couch Gag

http://www.reddit.com/r/television/comments/2ht6jr/one_of_the_most_bizarre_opening_simpsons_couch/ckw8s1g

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.

Also, if you want to see the couch gag in question, you can watch it on YouTube
