JavaScript has staying power; Used in Stargate

Category: Fun

This one is geeky. Someone watched the Stargate episode below and found JavaScript used in the console (above).

Interesting to see that JS1 is used in the future ;)

Um, Stargate isn’t set in the future. It’s supposed to be a secret government program set in the present. Pfft, I can’t believe you didn’t know that…

… Where’s the damn Ajaxianified effect for mock geek smugness?

lol. that opens a popup window in the middle of the screen. i can only a assume that must be similar to opening a stargate.

Funny, we can also see some line of JS code in the movie “Hitman”. When he turn on his computer we can see the source code of Sarissa (the same on google code).

I just guessed they used simple code like html and javascript in movies and tv such as Stargate, Hitman, AntiTrust, Dark Angel because they’re more recognisable as code to more people… letting the viewers feel that little more smart and the movie/show seem more believable.

The code is located on http://www.rbcroyalbank.com/oec/, lines 20 to 39.

It’s a wonder that there isn’t a store of aimless stock code for use in TV and films… hmmm… Business idea!

See?! The Replicators didn’t even need classes in JS to program themselves and they are badass mofos!!1!!1!

more, the guy said the program was huge, and would take weeks to go through.. hahaha I wonder if the program was written in Javascript 2…
I’m sure the lady would go into menopause first…

ps: joking

Excerpt from the Royal Bank website legal terms of use…

What are the chances Stargate asked for permission to use the code for ‘commercial use’?

Wow, and we though XSS Injection was a security vulnerability. In the future, h4ckers actually inject evil robot bugs into your lair via XSS.

Whow, I love both Stargate and JavaScript, but NEVER expected to see them mashed up…. I’m having a brain freeze. Ouch that hurts.

Bah! I saw C# (i.e. “System.Net.Socket”) used in the one where they accidentally infected the gate network with a homegrown virus and they had to write a fix.
