After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

NinjaLane 1337 Dictionary

Are you l33+??

I do not have the history behind this new Internet language but I do know it pops up in just about every chat room, message forum, and online game ever released and unlike the AYBABTU craze the Elite speakers are not going away. So to help the llamas and laymen out there here is the Ninjalane Leet Dictionary.

Being l33t is a frame of mind, some people get it and others think you are just being stupid. Regardless, after looking over this dictionary of terms you will have a better idea as to what it takes to at least 5p34k 133+.

The current plan is to start making this list dynamic, I have gotten several suggestions for new ways to write letters however what makes this dictionary unique is the leet words and their associated meanings. This is what will help make the dictionary grow.

If you would like to help contribute to this growing dictionary send your suggestions to .
