3s

srikanth @ 11:59 pm, GMT +0000 ( 1281743992 ) Play

Greetings, intrepid quizzers!

In case you’ve noticed, the last couple of questions seemed to have something to do with 3s. This is, of course, all part of our grand masterplan, and that was foreshadowing for something quite important (to us, and hopefully you as well :)).Before we get straight to the point, one further clue: http://www.boiledbeans.net/2007/08/13/beginnings/

And in case you still haven’t figured it out, the link is that it’s been three years since Boiledbeans started!

It’s been three years of:

  1. Drama! Intrigue! Geekiness!
  2. Frantic Googling/wiki-ing
  3. Coding in weird features
  4. Fixing bugs in those weird features
  5. Replying to email
  6. Scrambling to post questions

And, in short, three years of absolute fun for us. We hope you enjoyed it as well :-)

(Of course, we have something special coming up soon to mark this occasion. Watch this space. )
