10 February 2008 Blog goes online. Overworked all links and some texts. The site, called "Smyths" now, gets its own Flickr account and maybe we put some photos there in the future. J decides that Smyths should be called "Scientology Myths 2.0".
2 February 2008 Registered Scientology Myths Blog
with wordpress.com and played around with the CSS code, widgets and so
on. Lu finds a new hobby, "coding" a.k.a. messing with the site
structure and PHP code, and insists to be called "Countess Smyths" now.
February 2008 Scientology Myths goes back online!
January 2008 Lu starts overworking the texts, brings some order in Scientology materials, documents and tons of Firefox bookmarks.
Lu and J are getting back to work on Scientology Myths 1.0, digging
through archives and boxes of materials we collected in 2006. We
decided that the site is cool and should go back online. Time goes by.
Scientology Myths sits there with the coder and the writer doing
everything else except for adding content to the site. We even missed
that the hosting ran out later in the year and the site went silently
down. Finally the coder changes his job and drops the project
completely. Good luck, man!
2006 Scientology Myths v.1.0 goes online with new outfit.
Summer 2005 Scientology Myths version 0.9 went online as a test to see if the coding works and so on.
First offline version "The Truth about Scientology" written. Just pure
texts to common questions or allegations. Later in the year we
registered scientologymyths.info and some others for this project.
