A very sad day in ninjabyte's history
« on: November 29, 2017, 01:51:44 am »
So, we've stopped paying for the domain ninjabyte.eu and it got sold and converted to some pr0n/sex site (looks pretty disgusting).
Essentially this is it. Was fun to work on this Europe wide project, but this is the end.

Good news though:
p2 and I are working on a very nice retro system at this very moment that will come with a CRT :D

Also to any admins (I have no clue anymore who is after all these incidents):
It would be nice to have this theme as an option for the main site too (theme settings) since the default theme is really had on the eyes at night.

Cheers

Ouch x.x. Good news about the new system though. Keep us updated and hopefully you can do it at low cost. The main issue with outdated electronics is that they're hard to sell at low price due to the inability to buy them in bulk like we used to and the lack of parts to produce them (the reason why brand new 27 inch CRT TV's are still sold at $100 in some stores and why audio cassettes from current music bands costs $20)

It would be nice to have this theme as an option for the main site too (theme settings) since the default theme is really had on the eyes at night.
I second this idea for a darker theme. Although something a bit softer then lime green should probably be used, and WIRC should also be darker ;)

I really like this theme, although the text in the posts is hard to read, so I would suggest choosing a different font. Other than that, looks great!

Totally agreed. We should find a better text color and font. Also the green should be a little bit softened and WIRC darkened.
