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.


Store Wars

emoticon:baldguy A deeply serious post this time. As all of us true Star Wars devotees will know, a travesty has been unleashed upon us in the form of the recent three films. These monstrosities of computer imagery and layer upon layer of cheese purport to be the story of our beloved Star Wars.

At long last an antidote has been found. For a dose of nostalgia, that remains true to the spirit of the original, check out Store Wars - Ham Solo and Chewbroccoli are waiting for you....

May the farm be with you Laughing .

It's Been a Long Time

Razz It's been a while since I've blogged. Even longer since I've done a proper one. Life is hectic - better than being bored though. [1]

I took Friday off to start work on our patio down at River. I'm strictly a sedantry VR dweller - so it was an ordeal doing some real work for a change phew. Sometime I might stick some pictures up here.

Me and the Chinese Loon [2] spent a whole day laying a hardcore base for the slabs to go on. I've acquired some ex-demo real stone that has been cluttering up our yard at TBS for two years. This is the first time I've done anything like this and it was good fun. We used the farm JCB to dig out most of the soil in about fifteen minutes, and spent three hours removing the last three tonnes ourself. We then had to shovel and rake four tonne of hardcore back in and whack it down. It took all day, and I ached for the next three, but it was well worth it.

I'm enjoying writing at the moment, and have been trying to wade through the technical Strunk and White [3]. The bits I understand are very good Omit unnecessary words. I think of lots of ways of saying the same thing in more words, but it doesn't take much explanation. Apparently if you want to use more space, you can just say it three times for emphasis - Omit unnecessary words, Omit unnecessary words, Omit unnecessary words Laughing .

Anyway - I've had myself checked out, and apparently I've managed to acquire several mind viruses. I'd recommend you have an online scan as well.

[1]I don't even have a TV for goodness sake.
[2]Wei Loon to be precise. My Chinese friend from Malaysia, if that makes sense.
[3]Apparently the American bible on writing style. No one in England has heard of it.
