🕸️ Let's Make Web Bots! (Apache Open Directory Scanner)

Let's craft a nifty web bot to scan the contents of an apache open directory! All skill levels are welcome 😁

😝 WHAAAT??

Open directories (ODs / Opendirs) are unprotected websites that you can browse, without any logins. They are organized in a tradition file structure (like a local directory on your system).

Sometimes these are intentionally left open or by accident. There exists tons of open directories on the internet (like a big archology excavation adventure) for you to explore!

👁️ BACKGROUND

This event is inspired by Geocities! WHAT IS GEOCITIES? GeoCities became a home for then-brand-new internet users, much like Facebook and other forms of social media are for our generation. At its peak, GeoCities hosted over 38 million pages designed by 3 million users.

The thing that differentiated GeoCities was the decision to organize the free server space it offered users into virtual “neighborhoods”. The service also allowed people to create webpages of their own personal interest without much knowledge of coding or web design being required. The combination of self-designated “neighborhoods” and complete freedom of expression resulted in the service expanding quite rapidly considering the standards of the time.

BERSERK Wednesday - ANIME WATCH PARTY (1997 Version)

Online event

****** We'll be watching episodes 16 - 20******

You're invited to participate every Wednesday until we complete the 25-episode series celebrating the late Kentaro Muira's (July 11, 1966 - May 6, 2021) critically acclaimed and beloved manga series Berserk.

SUMMARY

Berserk takes place in a medieval Europe-inspired dark fantasy world and centers on the characters of Gattsu/Guts, a lone mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a mercenary band called the "Band of the Hawk"

WHY IS IT SO GOOD

Berserk is a dark and tragic story, combined with Mr. Muira's richly detailed artwork and complex characters. It explores themes of free will, trauma, destiny, morality and human resilience.

Without Berserk, Cloud Strife wouldn’t be wielding a big sword, nor would Dark Souls or Bloodborne exist. The series pioneered the way for Dark Fantasy genre, inspiring numerous video games including the Dynasty Warriors series and Monster Hunter.

This event is a joint event with Arts & Recreation Toronto
