snarfed.org has been around since early 2002. It was born on my own server, which lived first in dorm rooms at school and then in an apartment in SF. It later migrated to a Linux VPS at JVDS, and finally to its current home on a shared FreeBSD server at pair.com.
On the software side, it started on SnipSnap, then moved to PyBlosxom, and now runs on WordPress, first on its own theme and now on a modified Ryu theme. See my software page for more of its custom patches, plugins, and themes.
