Web site updates

NinZine-iPadI just updated the quote of the day script by Soke (from the old Ura Omote newsletters). If you want to subscribe to it the rss feed is http://feeds.feedburner.com/BujinkanQOTD A new quote will be generated once daily when someone visits the blog (http://bujinkan.me/ninzine/). It is displayed on the right sidebar on the blog.

Every once in a while the syndication feed go nuts and republish hundreds of articles again. Then I have to go in and delete all duplicates. I don’t know how to prevent it from happening again, WordPress and all plugins are up to date. I even installed a plugin that is supposed to stop duplicates from being posted, but it’s not working all the time.

We’re still working on the community (http://bujinkan.me), if you have any suggestions please join and get active in the forums. There is a really simple password everyone in Bujinkan knows to keep out bots from signing up and start spamming.


Happy Training!


the [youtube] rss feed

The videos to Y*uTub£ did not link correctly for a long time on mobile devices since they changed their API. Now I had some time over to look into it. So from now on I hope all the video links will be correct. I also filtered out [bujinkannice] which have spammed the feed the past months.

I know there are video’s uploaded to YT I wish never was uploaded, computer animated cartoon bears uploaded by an anonymous angry person with an agenda. Mr historian guy who demands answers from Hatsumi Soke who doesn’t even use computers, and when he don’t get an answer within a few hours he calls Bujinkan an fake art based on something he found on the internet. And then there are the persons who doesn’t even train in Bujinkan, but still tag their videos with “Bujinkan” in desperate need to get a bigger audience. So filtering out all this would be impossible unless doing it manually, which I don’t have time to do daily or even feel like. With all this in mind, don’t take the videos posted too seriously.

Happy training!
