launch of slash site ""

Announcing the opening of The site is meant to be a chronicle of idiotic and deceptive "security" measures. From the "three questions" that the airlines finally stopped asking to the closing of Meigs Airport in Chicago supposedly for security reasons, we want YOUR gripes about security measures that are just plain dumb!

I'd welcome submissions (the stupider the better!), comments, complaints, and praise!

Announced back in October last year, Vorlonspace was launched as a Babylon 5 discussions site. In late January, the site went down and was taken off the YASS list.

Hi everyone - We've just launched a slash site on Asian and Asian American topics called Thanks so much for the software and the inspiration. We're pretty nervous about whether this can take off or will just linger in some obscure corner of the web, so if you are interested in the community we're trying to create, please help us by telling other people who might also be interested in our site! We acknowledge our direct inspiration from slash in our mission statement. Cheers everyone from the people at!

Without further ado, here are the fruit of my last 12 weekends. The site runs on 2.6.6 and I probably won't touch it until there is a more decent upgrade strategy. Let me know if you like it and if you're interested in politics, please don't be shy and post a story when you run into something outrageous (which is easy these days).

It took 6 years to update my code after I handed rob the set of perl code I hacked out to run my site, but finally I changed over to running slash. I'm still working on bringing over the last of the content from the old site, and still tweaking everything (I still have the default slash color scheme) but it looks pretty good so far.

ExploitSeattle is your daily dose of events occuring in the Emerald City. Its run by a horde of rain soaked Seattlites who's quest to relieve boredom and promote cool stuff(TM) caused them to create a site to list their hip and not so hip events.

It's sort of been mentioned before, but -- a site devoted to chronicles and critiques of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers -- has converted from PHP Nuke 4.2 to Slash. Whether or not this item gets published, we'd like to be added to the list of slash sites. And of course, if you are interested in the future of the Internet you may want to visit us to find out what ICANN is up to. Or, you might want to read our first month's status report.
