I'm sure everyone here keeps up with the latest tech news so you were probably aware of this well before I was. Well yesterday I was perusing Digg when I saw a story on RegisterFly. Seems RegisterFly, which I had been using to register our domain nbrid.net, has had some "issues" over the past month (some say year). Some of these "issues" included people losing their domain names, names not being renewed on time and users having to pay $160 to get them back, not to mention customer support has been AWOL for ages. Uh-oh...
Life got you down? Feel the need to be part of something bigger? Feel like you're wasting your life at your mind-numbing 9-to-5 job that you actually work 8 to 7? Feel abused and under appreciated? Tell your boss you quit and come join us here at NBrid! A world of oppurtunity awaits once you've joined our family. We here at NBrid believe in a better quality of life for all of us, and we believe you can help us achieve that goal.
That's right. I'm looking at you. Plain and simple, you suck. And hard. I don't care if this costs us viewership (which at last count was up to 4.2!), this needs to be said. I just don't get it. What the hell is wrong with you people?!
There have been too many lovey-dovey Nintendo/DS/Wii posts of late, and I think people have started to think Nbrid is nothing but a happy-go-lucky Nintendo fanboy pandering internet destination. I need to remind people that really we are a group of bitter, jadded, emo punks. So when I look at what visitors think of us, I want to scream.
So 2005 has come and gone. We are now living in 2006. Yeah, scary huh. It seems like just yesterday it was September 1999...
A lot happened in 2005. For example, 2005 saw the opening of... err. Did much really happen in 2005? It seems like such a blur. 2005 was to the aughts as Wednesday is to a week: the year you just have to survive to get to the good stuff. Because certainly not much of note happened around these parts. Oh well. That's what 2006 is for. A new hope! (Great, it's been a few years since we've been sued. It was nice while it lasted.)
So you're probably thinking... what the? Where did the NBrid I know and love go? I hate to break it to you, but that NBrid never existed. However, we did ditch the 'old' script we used for the site in favor of this new and improved Drupal! I mean if it's good enough for The Onion, it's good enough for us!
I must warn you, it isn't "complete". I'm sure there will be several glitches as this change over takes place. Plenty of nice 404 Not Found errors to be sure. That said, I did my best to make sure old links will still work. So if you have a link to an old NBrid story (I'm looking at you Tupac...), it should automatically redirect you to it's new Drupal node version. Man I'm good...
The 5-year anniversary is traditionally the wood anniversary (I kid you not), but not here at Nbrid! We do it in style, DVD style. While we actually began in April 2000, we will celebrate it right this June.
It's official! Nbrid visitors' taste in games SUCK! Well, that was a little harsh. In fact, many of these I agree with. But not all. So I stand by what I said. What can you do about it? Cry? Hack us? HA!
As 'NOG' approaches its 22-and-a-half-month anniversary, what better time than now to look at the stories that have gotten the most use? So we here at NBrid bring you the top 30 NOG articles of all-time, based on views.
