Handlestory :
The handle was created in response to the billion or so "Ninja" handles on the BBSes in 1985 (as a joke). I had previously used "Mr. Sharpy" on Apple II and IBM BBSes from 1980ish-1985, taken from an electric pencil sharpener.

I haven't used "Ninjasbane" since I left the scene as I knew it back in 1989, (I outgrew it) and have since been known as Agony, Felon, Kingnine, among other nyms.

Pointless navel gazing and self reflection to follow:

1. In retrospect, despite how clever I thought the name Ninjasbane was (Ninja's Bane), no one else thought it was all that clever. In fact, most people didn't even know how to pronounce it correctly. I got "Ninjas Bay-Knee" a lot.

2. I spent most of my teenage life on the telephone. I learned how to phreak in 1985 at 14 and I didn't stop until I was eighteen. I talked to a lot of people. A LOT. From local crews in various states to the upper echelons of the "scene", from dudes I met on Q-Link to late night Alliance conferences with Euros, I met some great (and many not-so-great) people in my tele-travels. I miss many of whom I remember, regret forgetting the ones I forgot, and wish I had spent more time documenting everything. I also wish that more North American sceners were active (or at least a little curious) in today's scene.

Trivia :
I was a freelance artist for many minor US and Canadian groups.

Most of my graphics are lost to the annals of time. Some were good, some were bad, and some were never shared. But the ones listed below were "saved", for what that's worth.

I retired from phreaking on June 7, 1989 (my 18th birthday) and slowly lost interest in the Commodore 64. I bought my first PC in 1994 and ran a low-traffic BBS for a while.

Rejoined the scene in 2006 and left again in 2014.
