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.

Resolver and IronPython

emoticon:bugs After over a year of working as a programmer for Resolver Systems I can finally tell you what I've been working on.

We're now 'out of stealth mode' officially, and Resolver is in the hands of a few beta testers.

Resolver is a new spreadsheet program (a desktop application) for companies who push spreadsheets beyond what they were designed to do.

Resolver in action...

I won't bore you with all the techie details, but if you are interested you can read my announcement on the Techie blog. I've also launched a new website, with articles and examples on how to get the best from Resolver: Resolver Hacks.

Resolver is written in a new programming language called IronPython. I'm currently writing a book on IronPython for Manning. As well as this, I'm giving a couple of talks on the subject soon.

A talk on 'Python in Your Browser: IronPython and Silverlight' at PyCon UK in September. The following week I will be giving a similar talk (to a very different audience) at Mix UK, the Microsoft developer conference. Then in November I will be at another Microsoft conference in Barcelona called TechEd. I won't be speaking there but will be on the Microsoft dynamic languages stand. All more than enough to keep me busy. Wink

Visit to Cyprus

emoticon:ir_scope We hadn't been away this year, and with the book progressing slowly it looked like we weren't going to get away this year. Delia started to threaten me with divorce, so I found us a cheap holiday in Cyprus from lastminute.com [1].

We spent a week there and it was great. Cyprus is an ex-British colony. It is very hot but very tourist orientated.

It has some interesting (mainly Roman) history.

Paphos - Tomb of the Kings

We did some fun things.

Paragliding

We met some of the locals.

A local lizard

Including some familiar faces.

Shrek in Cypress

Although quite a barren country there is some beautiful scenery. This is from the Troodos mountains.

Shrek in Cypress
[1]Checking out the hotel on Tripadvisor.com of course.

Grains!

F-Minus Vegetarian Zombies

Well, I thought it was funny. In the next couple of entries I'll tell you some of the things I've been up to.
