MO’s 5th Birthday

Hmmm. I almost missed the fact that today is Murdoc Online’s fifth birthday.

My first post was written after watching a speech by President Bush and many months passed before I started getting some readers. Now here Murdoc is, nearly ready to launch his world-conquering campaign, having recently passed his two millionth visit.

Don’t get confused by the fact that I posted some emails I had sent out in the weeks before starting this site. It was the endless chain of emails that convinced me to give blogging a try, and I tossed them up onto the site a week or two after I launched. March 16th is the golden day.

I had intended to write up a big post about what I thought about the past five years and how I thought running this site had changed me, but now it’s starting to get late and I’ve got some reading to do.

So happy birthday to MO and maybe I’ll follow up a bit in the next day or two.


  1. haha i remember first reading this site like 3 to 3 1/2 years ago and i must say it has helped in some ways shape my future career i just enlisted in the navy as an IS (thankfully i got an 82 on the ASVAB) and ship for boot in june. hehe hey who knew such small things could lead to such a dramatic event (for me atleast :P)

  2. dont worry i think ill manage (hah sorry for the grammar, im too used to leet speak) 😛 besides, if it really is that bad, i can always flood your email with hate mail haha nah ill do my best, do you or anyone you know have any advice on a future IS? and if you guys dont mind me asking, what is the best way to become an ISO? i kinda know the answer but i thought i might as well ask. and keep up the great posting Murdoc ok i think i spammed this too much 😛

  3. Enjoy Great Mistakes and Dam Neck… Ask the instructors at Dam Neck when you are almost done about officer programs. They train the 1630s there as well as IS’…
