Sing a New Song

He knew that they would say to
"You are no singer! And even if you are you should sing the
songs we know."
And well he knew the penalty of law. A dreamer could be
in hate for singing songs the world had never heard.
Such songs had sent a thousand singers to their death
And the song which dogged his aching steps and begged him
pleadingly to sing it was completely unfamiliar.
Only the stars and mountains knew it. But they were old. And
man was new, and chained to simple, useless rhymes; thus he
could not understand the majesty that settled down upon him.
But daily now it played upon his heart and swept his soul,
the joy exploded his awareness- crying near the edge of
"Sing... sing... SING!"

Excerpt from 'The Singer', by Calvin Miller.

Facing the Chop

Voidspace goes under the knife. It's a bit of a drastic way to lose weight - but Voidspace has gone under the surgeons knife. As part of the revamp the old 'otherfunkystuff' and 'cyberpunkproject' sections have gone.

In the next phase the 'science' and 'computer' sections will be merged into a new 'technology' section, 'cyberpunk' will become 'fiction', and some of the stuff in 'esoteric' will become 'spiritual' and the 'psychology' stuff will be moved into 'esoteric' before it too faces the chop.

This is resulting in a leaner, meaner, and hopefully keener, Voidspace. All new pages will have the lovely new XHTML/CSS styling.

It does mean that there'll be a few 404's in the coming months whilst the search engines catch up with the changes. It's sad to lose content, and potential visitors, but I think the improvements are worth it.

On a related note you mean bunch - I'm getting an average of a thousand visitors a day. Hundreds of people every day download the books and open source software I host here - and I haven't had a single donation ! You rotten lot :-)

It's particularly an issue because of my bizarre circumstances. Because I live in a common purse Christian Community I'm entirely dependent on sources like this to keep Voidspace afloat... hmm.. maybe I'll have to be more bolshy on the download pages.

On a Dark One

It's 3.15am and my PDA power supply is bust. In order to be able to use it in the morning, I've got up and brought it to the computer room - where I'm compelled to blog. Odd hey :-)

I very rarely get round to watching films. That means that when I do I really long to see something with some depth to it. Because film grabs your senses it really has an opportunity to engage with the soul - your mind and emotions. It's also easier to produce something shallow.

Unfortunately I usually end up watching something more like the second kind than the first.

This weekend I saw two films and enjoyed them both. The first was xXx - a James Bond rip off adventure (complete with 'Q' techie boffin). It was actually great fun and only occasionally wandered into the absurd.

The next one was Donnie Darko. It came recommended by a friend - and I was really worried it was just going to be sick and give me nightmares. I ended up totally blown away by the ending. It didn't have the depth of characters that I would have loved to have seen - but even so, the end was a wow moment. I think I liked it all the more because it didn't try to tie up all the loose ends and explain everything, which is much more like life....

You may notice my spelling has improved. In actual fact it's not my spelling that is bad - but my typing (which is hopefully improving as I drift into touch typing, but that's not what I'm talking about). I've written a spell checker for this blog tool. See my Techie Blog for more details.

The Old Blog Archives

There was so much ancient wisdom distilled into my old blog, that I couldn't let it just creep ignominiously into the pages of cyber-history. More to the point I'm still getting some hits from google with the old entries. Here are the archives of my previous Blogger based blog.
