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

 

 

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.

Very Sensible

emoticon:dollars Some things in life confuse me. I mean, take our suppliers of lintels. Keystone Lintels make excellent lintels. They've come from being a new manufacturer, to having around a third of the UK market in about ten years. They've done it by selling a quality product cheaper than the competition, which was stagnant and bloated when they entered the market. They also have quite a flash website [1]....

What they don't have is their prices on their website. This is obviously some corporate decision, but isn't very helpful. They needn't worry - because their prices are all based on a list price, so surely it would be helpful to have this available to customers [2] ?

What they do have is another, secret, domain with just the price list on - obviously intended for the use of merchants like myself. I say secret, because although it only contains list prices it's not linked to anywhere on their site. In fact as far as I can tell it's not linked to anywhere - google doesn't seem to know about it.

Not only that, but they go out of their way to make it hard to find. their main domain is www.keystone-lintels.co.uk. This is a .co.uk domain, with a '-' separating the words in the domain name. Their price list is at www.keystoneprices.com. This is a .com domain with no dash. Weird.

I'm hoping that this blog entry will at least cause google to index the site, so that when I forget what it's called I don't have to try four combinations of domain names before I find it !

[1]literally
[2]As it also makes a useful reference to their whole range.
