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.

Interesting Article on File Sharing

emoticon:contour This post probably belongs in my Techie Blog, but it's of general interest so I thought I would post it here. Razz

I have just seen an unusually interesting article on the BBC website about File Sharing. Instead of the usual yada-yada it seems to be an insightful summary of the technical and ethical issues. It's nowhere near as clear-cut as either side of the debate would have you believe.

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes

emoticon:ghostradio Like almost everyone I know, I can't resist a short pithy quote. The following two are from Mahatma Gandhi. As you might expect, they are quality sayings with more than a grain of truth in them :

"I think it would be a good idea."

—Mahatma Gandhi (When asked what he thought of Western civilization)

"Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it."

—Mahatma Gandhi

Nanagram 1.4 Released

emoticon:nanagram Nanagram 1.4 is now available.

This is a Shareware program, and there is a free demo version available. The source code to Nanagram 1.3 is still freely available, under the Shareware License.

On the Voidspace Shop you will find windows installers and executable versions of both the full program and the free demo. The free demo has a smaller dictionary and a few less features, but is still fun to play around with. The full version costs 4.99.

The Nanagram GUI

What is Nanagram ?

Nanagram is a desktop maker. Astound and annoy your friends by discovering what silly anagrams can be made from their names. It can also be used to help solve crossword puzzles. Nanagram has a friendly interface and a host of features.

Did you know that :

  • George W Bush is an anagram of 'whose bugger'...
  • Tony Blair : 'bony trail'...
  • Ronald Reagan : 'adrenal groan' or 'loan arranged'...
  • Osama Bin Laden : 'bald nose mania' or 'bad neon salami'...
  • Mother Theresa : 'hot rare themes' or 'earth theorems'...
  • Michael Foord : 'cool firm head'... remember, the anagram never lies Smile

What's New in 1.4 ?

  • Improved the GUI.
  • Sped up the anagram finding by around 20%.
  • Now built with Python 2.4 and psyco 1.5 for even more speed.
  • Added the progress bar.
  • Added the option to include common short words.
  • Optimised sorting the results.
  • We can now find anagrams where a word fits more than once into the original phrase.

Plus various other minor changes and improvements.

Vicar Dies

emoticon:halt I've just had a slightly spooky email from a gentleman called Eric Davies. He's been playing with my Free Online Anagram Generator.

I'm about to be ordained a priest... and have been a chaplain for 3 years...
my anagram...

Vicar Dies

Vicar being priest of course...
ugh.. too funny.. thought you might enjoy knowing my fate.

Remember, the anagram never lies. Wink
