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.

Going Freelance

emoticon:development A while back I blogged that all I had to do in order to become a full time webmaster was to increase the amount of visitors to my website one hundred times. Yup, a ten thousand percent increase and I can retire. Rolling Eyes

That's not going to happen of course. Not ever. With a concerted effort I could possibly double or even triple my 'traffic', by re-organising and writing new articles. Most of my time at the moment is spent programming though. This leads me to an interesting point...

I've recently launched Movable Python, my first attempt at a commercial program. I won't even attempt to explain what it does; your eyes would glaze over within seconds. Sales though are ok, I'm only charging 5 and I'm selling a pretty steady one a day. When I release the demo version I reckon I can count on doubling that.

Now if I could sell ten a day, I'd be earning more than I do currently. Multiplying something by ten sounds a lot easier than multiplying it by one hundred. In fact it sounds about ten times easier. Very Happy

I really enjoy programming. What I'd really like to do is write and run a successful web application. You know, something like Reddit or Del.icio.us. Something a tenth as successful as these would be fine, but writing and maintaining my programs [1] would be just as fine. Suddenly it doesn't seem such an impossible dream. I've already got two programs I give away that I could sell versions of. I've also got three relatively simple programs in mind that I could sell. Get all these selling two each a day; well I'm sure you can do the maths.

For those of you with a techie streak, don't worry. I haven't given up on Open Source. In fact some of these programs I may be able to give away the source code for. Cool hey. Hmmm... we'll see.

[1]Mainly desktop applications of various sorts. See Voidspace Shareware for the ones available so far.
