xkcd hosts porn? (keep thread SFW)

Postby returnaddress » Wed Jun 10, 2009 10:10 pm UTC

The host is: http://aram.xkcd.com/ (SFW)
This page has changing, nonsensical phrases.

The porn is at: http://aram.xkcd.com/nsfw_images/ (NSFW)

What is this? Was xkcd hacked?

Hmm, there is a lot of stuff on this domain:

Pictures looks like a PHP-based listing of /home/randall/Pictures imo.

It's an automated script that pulls any image tagged NSFW from #xkcd.

Somehow I fear we've stumbled onto Randall's Secret Stash...

Nah, no raptors, it can't be XKCD's.

The main host page seems to be static and from a random search on a dictionary. Right now it won't change from Mangroves softeners mishap!

The NSFW page does say
Index of Pictures
This is an automatic aggregation of every image posted to #xkcd (plus a few other very public channels) tagged "NSFW", as of the last running of the grep. It is not updated.

So it might be from #xkcd or from other channels. It seems to be an autogenned site:

Other aram.xkcd.com directories:
http://aram.xkcd.com/emad_images/ (random memes?)
http://aram.xkcd.com/temp/ (text files and at least one zoomed in xkcd comic)

Sidenote: http://aram.xkcd.com/temp/cakes.txt
Seems to be a column of numbers with ASCII drawn penises of varying sizes next to them. I can see no connection between the penii and the numbers, which thoroughly confuses me.

http://aram.xkcd.com/nsfw_images/nsfw.txt seems to be textlinks to nsfw images
http://aram.xkcd.com/irc_images/ seems to be links to random images (might be some nsfw, not sure)

Yeah, that's just a folder containing every image posted to #xkcd plus some other big public channels tagged "NSFW". There's another similar gallery at http://aram.xkcd.com/irc/emad_images/

None of them are automatically updated or anything -- it's just a grep+wget command I ran one afternoon, with (IIRC) some kind of gallery-creation bash script to make the gallery page.

Good luck figuring out all the other things, like the cake page.

I'm guessing that the cake is a lie.

Couldn't have been Randall's stash, there was a distinct lack of guitars in showers.

Funny thing is that I noticed the lack of showers and guitars and lack of velocoraptor mating habits I can't help but to think and forgive me if I am being terribly crude THAT'S HOT!!!

I find it extremely creepy that my first name is part of the domain name for all these shenanigans, and I swear that I have nothing to do with it.
