First off, all credit goes to DD32 for this. He spotted it and I’ve been laughing ever since at how funny this is.
The following screenshots are from episode 5 of the British mini-series Strike Back:
Mark Jaquith was even kind enough to port their changes back into the WordPress core. Hilarious.

Wordpress is becoming a bit like Dr Who’s sonic screwdriver… it can do everything. LOL
Nice one Viper
This is so funny!
What fun! Now if I can only find an affordable source of the missiles!
I did a similar blog post at one point about this using my scanner. Great fun the things we can do with tech and the right humor!

WordPress is so powerful LOL ! Nice screeshots. I look forward to see Strike Back: in France !
Nice one, as long as this code doesn’t “bomb out” on its users – I say let it roll 🙂
hahaha, open source missiles, huh? LOL
Oh no….they are checking the css class of the missle…we need to get out of here before they find out that we changed it and added text-decoration to their links onHover!!!
Looks like the producers requested some code from the webmaster 🙂 Anyway, this is the second publicized (at least to me) real-world code used in movies/series. The first one is obviously nmap appeared in the Matrix. But now, the usage is somehow irrelevant -yet laughable- 😀
This is awesome. I was just lamenting the lack of real code in shows and movies the other day. I said that getting ahold of GPL licensed code to use would be trivially easy since there are hundreds of millions of lines of it across the net.
It seems that at least one technology advisor / prop coordinator / directory / whatever finally got a clue. 🙂

I will never use post visibility so carelessly again, I worry about how many missles I’ve unknowingly launched in the past. DON’T TOUCH THOSE VISIBILITY RADIOS! DON’T TAG POSTS! These are dangerous things in the layperson’s hands!
