Cybernetic Demise (2012 Mockups) (2014-07-07)

CD5K > FU > DWB > net > cd5k

Plans for the ultimate website, which would host the ultimate fiction project, until I changed the name again.

This website never exited the planning phase; I jumped straight to making WaxVerse based on those plans. I only ever coded two actual pages, which are an IE<8 blocking test, and a fakeout censorship page that displays a different message if the user has Javascript disabled. That's all the actual HTML I did; the rest of this is from notes files.

A quick note: the filenames begin with nw_ (New Website) to differentiate them from the Clan PROS planning files, which began with www_.

Cybernetic Demise Voluntary Rating and Summary
Revision 0, 43D16:2009 (2011-10-28 20:09Z)

CDVRS	Language	Sexuality	Violence
.0	Silent		N/A		Peaceful
.1 (4)	Inoffensive	Clean		Injury
.2 (7)	Coded Speech	Tame		Dismemberment
.3 (11)	Expletives	Revealing	Blood
.4 (14)	Insensitive	Implied		Suffering
.5 (18)	Vulgar		Explicit	Gore
.6 (21)	Heated		Smut		Mutilation

This is, essentially, the next iteration of PAFCRAS. I dropped this system when I switched to WaxVerse to reduce hassle; easier to just not worry about children and ask that only adults visit my site.

I was still using a non-standard date format, but this one was based on the Tranquility Calendar instead of being something I made up entirely. I eventually opted to use a similar system only for in-universe dates while sticking to ISO 8601 for all real-world references.


.ndh for ssi, .htf for template pieces

.cb0-F, .cf0-F for CGA text colors (8bg, 8bg+blink, 16fg)
sup { vertical-align:text-top; }
sub { vertical-align:text-bottom; }
div.hbl>a, a.hbl, div#lb>a, div#li>a { display:inline-block; }
0#000 1#00a 2#0a0 3#0aa 4#a00 5#a0a 6#a50 7#aaa
8#555 9#55f a#5f5 b#5ff c#f55 d#f5f e#ff5 f#fff

vids!main will be a linkthrough page, with a link to the youtube channel, and lists of its videos in alphabetical order (A-Z), chronological order (oldest-newest), and in their respective groups (lets plays, vlogs, cdfu), as well as a list of people I watch and my favorite videos.

NDH was an HTML4 rebranding of HMX1, and was later changed to WAXML/WaxSSI. Also suggested is the use of .htf (HyperText Fragment) for partial files. In the next few lines, the beginnings of HyperCGA take form, including the default 16 EGA colors, and Have Block Link divs.

Aside from not having a YouTube channel, the plan for the videos index is largely the same as the reality.

absolute originality (cddox!meta.aop.ndh)

All works are derivative. However, until the big industries come to their senses and realize this, I am compelled to employ the following lawsuit-aversion tactics known to me as the Absolute Originality Principles:
A. You Are Not Here - Must not mention existing locations/events/people.
B. Trademark Lawyer Paranoia - Must not incorporate or parody existing brands.
C. Dissimilarity - Must make content unique enough to be legally distinct.

The blurb above is a prototype of one of the sections that currently appears on the Ideology page. I was also going to have the site's main page be a fake censorship notice (different to the one linked at the top), but it would also display the actual link to the site if JavaScript was disabled:

The actual index page had a brief explanation of the site, as well as links to an FAQ page, a history page, and my personal section, followed by a monthly update list similar to the one I use now. There was also to be a whole array of esoteric custom error messages:

481	The server has experienced a temporary error.
	 Please eject and reinsert the disk and try again.
482	Somebody shot the server with a 12-gauge.
	 It is currently offline for repairs.

Aside from the default layout template, there's also a tidbit about keyboard shifting to deliberately confuse anyone who finds a secret page:

Awxewr Sixynwbra Ubswz
AWXEWR is equivalent to the DRVTRY idea from Clan Pros.
 Gu, fyta! U qeirw gusswb xibrwbr ai U xiyks gusw ur! Qwvaurw xisubf!
 Biq ret ri dubs rgw ewar id iye gusswb sixynwbra! Fi ib, hyar ret ur!
(Hi, guys! I wrote hidden content so I could hide it! Website coding!
 Now try to find the rest of our hidden documents! Go on, just try it!)
   The file "/dev/sda8/cd5k0003/docexchg/articles.db/awxewr/index"
   is stored in a read-protected subset of Fiscal Memory.

And, finally, we close with the default layout's footer, which was completely phased out for brevity's sake:

It is a 5000% original next-level textual assault which has beeen genetically engineered (with the use of programming obtained from the future) to be as amazing as possible without inducing spontaneous combustion.
