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.

Places I've Been

emoticon:clock Well, this is cool - even it just shows how few places I've been:

Countries I've visited

The actual countries are:

  • USA (for a Python programming conference, but we managed to see three states in one day in a driving trip)
  • UK - well uhm... most of the time in fact (I've been to Belfast, but never south of the border - so not Ireland)
  • Denmark (a family visit as a teenager. I was on the cusp of puberty and the most memorable thing about the country was the prominent bosoms on huge billboards, oh plus the incident with the jellyfish and discovering that mayonnaise goes with chips)
  • France (several family visits)
  • Holland (an ill fated trip to Amsterdam whilst I was going mad)
  • Poland (two programming conferences)
  • Romania (to visit my wife's family)
  • Italy (to visit a university friend of my wife)

And that's it. Smile

Spider versus Bumblebee

emoticon:carrot Today I was witness to an epic struggle, as two bitter enemies fought to the death in mortal combat:

The spider and the bumblebee

Unfortunately the most exciting parts happened before I fetched my camera. The bumblebee got snagged in the web, and the spider (a hefty brute) saw its chance for a week's worth of dinner.

The bee managed to break free, but obviously still had silk on its wings and couldn't fly off.

The spider and the bumblebee - part 2

The spider lunged several times, presumably biting the bee, who was making a desperate attempt to escape on foot! In the end the spider seemed to get bored. Either it gave up (bumblebee fur a bit tough to bite through?), or perhaps it just settled back to wait for the bee to tire or die.
