Cyberpunk, Spirituality and Technology - The Voidspace Blogspot

The strange and deluded ramblings of a rather odd person. Hello Dude - It's Me

Please Fasten Your Seatbelts

And Loosen Your Clothing

Follow my exploration of living a spiritual life and finding the kingdom at Unpolished Musings.

These pages are all my own work. Unfortunately that may be a terrible admission. In these pages are various writings of mine, from the first part of my life story, to poems, to mad ramblings without excuse. Below the links to the articles is my blog. Not to be confused with the Techie Blog, this is random ramblings from life.

Rambling Rumination

Diving or Drowning Part I. The first part of my Autohagiography... up to the point where I first take ecstacy. The tale of how a polite, well mannered middle-class child became such a ruffian.....

Diving or Drowning Part II. The second part of my life story - the further fall....

Life in Romania. An article about living in Romania. This follows two visits in 2004 and 2005 to visit my wifes parents. Life is very different in Romania than it is here in Britain.

A Random Assortment. A short collection of my poetry. There's one or two gems buried in here.

HumanOS v1.3. Subtitled baby crocodiles, computers and the human personality. This is an article that compares the human mind to a computer operating system. It touches on artifical intelligence and the ages old Nature versus Nurture debate.

Christian Meditation. A short piece on Christian meditation - exploring living Spirituality with God.

Imagine Paradise. No its not about a large network of computers, its actually about Christian Community..... and why we bother.

The first is an article on the spiritual power of symbols and sacraments. The second one, is on what sort of truth we can expect to find in the bible - with a brief section providing one possible reconciliation between modern science and Genesis. They should both be understandable by 'beginners' to the subjects.

Quick 'n' Dirty HTML. Need to get a webpage up quick and never done any HTML before ? This article will get you up to speed with the basics, using a TABLE for layout. Not for those who want nice, standards compliant, XHTML and CSS...

Voidspace Story. My cyberpunk short story. Lovely imagery but very short *sigh*. Come and play in the Void !

Beginners Guide to Atlantis. My beginners guide for new players of Atlantis - the computer 'Play-by-eMail' game. Very useful if you`ve just started to play.

Richard Kadrey - a Sci-fi Author with Sense

emoticon:clock Well, there is some controversy about making classic works available online. Google are getting into a load of trouble anyway.

Thankfully some authors have good sense, Richard Kadrey has given his blessing to Metrophage online at Voidspace - which is very cool... Smile

Romanian Recipes on Delia's Website

emoticon:mirrormask I've always been very proud of my wife Delia, and especially her cooking. (Those of you who have visited us will know what I mean.)

She now has her own website, with some traditional Romanian recipes:

In case you hadn't guessed, the website name is a tribute to that other cooking Delia: Delia Smith . Smile

There's still more work to be done on the site, more recipes and photos and so on, but it's a good start.

Ruggedized Devices and the Top Ten New Smartphone Technologies

emoticon:bugs There are two new articles in the Science & Technology section of Voidspace. These are:

  • Top Ten Smartphone Technologies

    A close look at the top ten up and coming technologies for smart-phones and mobile devices. From flexible displays, to 3D accelerators, to fuel cells; there are interesting changes afoot in the world of communications.

  • Ruggedized Devices

    If you're anything like me, then any new and cool gadget comes with a risk that it will soon die from being dropped, squashed or otherwise destroyed.

    This article is a look at some of the cutting edge rugged mobile devices, with a review of their features and the pros and cons. There is some impressive looking gear shown here.

These articles are both written by Rene Tse. I particularly like the article on rugged mobile devices. I'd love to get a new PDA [1], and I even kept my last one for two years without breaking it, but having one that can cope with rain and klutz-induced-disaster would be a big bonus.

[1]I'm particularly tempted by the HTC Athena which is now available in the UK. Luckily for my pocket, my current contract doesn't expire for another few months.

If you've never read Virtual Light, Idoru and All Tomorrow's Parties, then they're well worth a read. Excellent stuff. Smile
