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.

One Good Turn....

emoticon:videocam Since Friday I've been helping with the Good Timber show. This is held at New Creation Farm one a year, and it's the second time I've helped out.

Good Timber is one of the businesses run by the New Creation Christian Community, to which I belong. This business sells English and Australian hardwoods - primarily to hobbyist wood turners, but also to people making hand crafted furniture and expensive bespoke kitchens.

A local wood turner Guy Ravine was with us and demonstrated turning various of the woods. He had (and created) bowls, vases, and other intriguing artefacts from the different woods. Wood is a beautiful material - unparalleled in beauty by any manmade substance. Turning and finishing wood - whether it be walnut or lignum vitae [1] or beech - brings out the subtle elegance of the grain. Particularly in the hands of a master craftsman like Guy Smile .

Strangely enough the real star of the show was a timber called Kerto from Finland. This is a (man made !) softwood laminate that we obtained as a by-product of the construction industry. It's also known by it's more common name - plywood... shhhh... Wink

Despite this, it actually turns very well - the laminate forming a distinctive grain. It's also cheap enough for beginners to turn big blocks without wasting too much money Very Happy . See the images below for what can be done with it by the tools of an expert....

Turned Kerto More Turned Kerto
[1]Whose name means 'living rock'. This African hardwood sinks in water and is so hard they used to make ball bearings with it.

Let's Get Personal

emoticon:noise Ok, it does happen occasionally; I've made a decision Laughing .

My Techie Blog looks very dry compared to some. All my personal stuff I keep over on the Voidspace Blogspot. This means my non techie friends, I do have some Wink , don't have to wade through incomprehensible jargon. It also means some of my friends have to subscribe to both. Unfortunately a side effect is that those who only subscribe to my Techie blog might think I have no life at all Surprised .

From now on I'm going to include my personal stuff in the Techie blog as well. The Techie blog is going to grow much faster than my personal one - but while I only do personal blogs once a week, or every few days, it shouldn't be a problem.

Update

After some feedback suggesting this is a bad decision, I'm reconsidering.
