Happy 10th Birthday Three NInjas

Happy 10th Birthday to the “Three Ninjas” community.

Happy Birthday to us!

The Cake is not always a lie!

 

Sit tight dear reader while I give you the brief history of how we came about, and why were are celebrating today!

19th May 2005:

A couple of us in the office created LiveJournal accounts so we could keep up with what our friends were doing, and so we could post random gibbering’s online during the slower parts of the day to try and keep us sane. My account was under the name penddraig, and the first ever post I made can be found here entitled “First Entry

Our posts covered mostly the insanity of work, random thoughts & meme’s, and what we had been up too. Including a few funny themed posts like the “ICE phone scam“. Our little community grew with some constant interactions and comments from the same group of people.

8th January 2009:

With the sell off of LiveJournal to a Russian businessman, and the reported rumours it was closing down  reported here in “Livejournal” (Plus the niggling voice telling me as an IT person I should have my own hosted blog) I decided to start my own self-hosted Blog using WordPress as the core system. I therefore set up wordpress, imported all my old LiveJournal posts into the new Blog and was up running.

12th January 2009:

Before I’d even finished setting up my blog, a friend from the old LiveJournal days expressed an interest in moving away as well. After a beer fuelled discussion, we decided to have a group or community blog. So After much discussion we settled on a domain name, and the Three Ninjas blog became a reality.

So without that original set of LJ posts, this blog would never have been here. So please take a minute to wish us (and GothNinja in particular) a Happy Blog Birthday.

Site Change

Greetings & Salutations

You may have noticed we have had a large style change on the site. If you have not then I suggest you book an emergency eye test because this site now looks nothing like it did before.

The reason for this change was to fix a few bugs that were starting to pop up. You see the old site had been running on the same code none stop for almost 6 years. In that time there had been countless updates, bug fixes, tweaks, etc which had kept the site running. Unfortunately keeping it “just running” was getting harder and harder, and the bugs were getting bigger and slightly self aware.

To combat this threat. We wiped the site and rebuilt from new. So please be patient as we sort out any teething issues.

Thank you for your continued support

The Management!

 

Sept. 10th is the Internet Slowdown

Sept. 10th is the Internet Slowdown

Cable companies want to slow down (and break!) your favorite sites, for profit. To fight back, let’s cover the web with symbolic “loading” icons, to remind everyone what an Internet without net neutrality would look like, and drive record numbers of emails and calls to lawmakers.

Are you in?

We here at the Ninja Temple are supporting this important issue. Which is why you saw a “Loading” page when you connected.

Help us spread the world, and keep the Net Free, Unrestricted, And speedy!!!

Hi loyal readers.

Just a quick post to say we are back up and running. “What? You did not notice we had gone away? for shame on you!

We have had a change of hosting providers. The new one is fast, stronger, newer, its the 6 million dollar hosting.
