The Old 9rules Is Coming Back

Written by Scrivs on February 22, 2008

To save myself from repeating what I have said a million times today I am going to link you to this Note which gives direction about the future of 9rules. To sum it up, 9rules is going back to the way it used to be with noting more than Member content to fill its pages. What is old, will be new again. We will be talking about this a lot so stay tuned.

Drinkcast III Tonight @11pm

Written by Scrivs on February 21, 2008

Sorry for the late notice, but you have 5 hours to get ready for Drinkcast III where we will unveil the latest project from the team. We aren’t waiting till we are done with it, we are getting everyone in on the ground floor as we start a series on how we go about building a site.

So bring your drinks, kick back and tune in.

Drinkcast II Tonight @11pm

Written by Scrivs on February 13, 2008

Tyme updated you beautiful people not too long ago about what is going on with 9rules and the Triad, but I figured you missed my voice so I would offer a bit more. Tonight we are doing Drinkcast II where we kick off our shoes, pop open some cold ones and talk about everything under the sun. Doesn’t seem interesting? Well maybe this review by our man Jason Ellis will entice you and let you know how things really go down.

If you are subscribed to this blog then it is because you want to know more about 9rules. For that I suggest you subscribe to ExpertIdiot where I’ll be detailing some of the decisions that we have made on 9rules in the past and where the future is taking us. It won’t be all butterflies and unicorns. We have made some mistakes and I will tackle these as well. Some interesting changes are ahead and it’s always good to keep you guys informed.

If you don’t care about anything I said in the first two paragraphs and just want some more of Scrivs then Yo Scrivs! (please, please, please, please ignore the design for right now) should give you your fill.

Beyond that I have nothing more to tell you except I look forward to talking to all of you tonight at Drinkcast II.

Officially Endorsing Barack Obama For President

Written by Mike Rundle on February 5, 2008

We don’t normally do this here at 9rules, but in our last podcast the three of us realized that we’re all backing the same person for President, and that’s Barack Obama. I can’t speak for Paul and Tyme on this one, but here are my reasons for why I will be voting for him:

  • Obama has been against the Iraq war since the beginning, has not voted for it, and has never wavered in his beliefs that we need to get out. Even when Hillary was asked during the last Democratic debate if she regrets voting for the war, she never admitted she was wrong, and I think I’d have more respect for her if just once she said that she made a mistake. She continuously justifies her vote for the Iraq war and that drives me further and further away from supporting her.
  • Obama supports marijuana decriminalization which would save the U.S. hundreds of millions of dollars per year, or more, since jailing someone is so expensive to taxpayers.

These are just a few issues that pull me to Senator Obama.

Whoever you support, make sure you get out and vote because it’s crucial.

It’s time to update ya’ll….

A video update on what has been going on with the guys and I, when submissions are opening up (soon!) and the new stuff we’ve been doing. It might seem like we’ve been quiet but quite the contrary. We launched two new sites, 3by9 and Quofda. We’ve been Super Streamin’…..
