Yes, my web page is BLACK for a while. Apologies to you HTML purists and ultrageeks (that's a compliment -- I hold you in highest regard!) who think that black pages are pretentious. Really. I apologise.
But I digress.
Folks, we really did it this time. And for our efforts, we get four more years of regressive political action. We've already lost the last forty years, and we're about to lose the previous two hundred or more, to the regression and powermongering currently in our government. I haven't seen anything this power-hungry since Kings Henry VIII, John, Richard II and George IV! I might have the numbers off but not by much.
Napoleon was a cakewalk compared to our current administration, which compares more to Stalin and/or Krushchev.
It will stay this colour until such time as this country wakes up and smells their own flesh searing in the wok, and realises that we have become our historical enemy.
For further explanation, see here.
More will be written as I collect my thoughts (and prepare to trade them for valuable prizes).
You can get around in here via the links at the bottom or the top of the page. At the immediate moment, they're not active because this page is still actually under construction, and I've not decided what I'm going to let you see yet.
I keep a blog now, and it gets updated as this page does. If you have seen my main index page already, you know that this site may well go into hibernation sometime soon, and for an indeterminate length of time.
The blog lives here.
Bookmark it, for fun and profit.
No headliner this time.
Feature: The periodic feature. My thoughts on the world at large, the occasional lyric, and the occasional piece of prose and poetry, i.e.
Here you will find the verse of the times
Occasionally you will find that it rhymes
And sometimes it is nothing but prose
So sometimes it won't.
It will also include links to previous features. They will be titled and dated.
Wanderings: Sometimes I'll post random wandering memories or thoughts here. These will be arranged in a titular fashion. I have a lot of things that I remember which I wish were still around, for what will probably be obvious reasons. I also have quite a few views on various topics such as operating sytems, laws, history as it applies to the modern day, etc.
Stories: Come on in, check out my works of fiction. Currently there's only one, but I think you might find it worth a read!.
Verse: This is a link to an index of verse that I may choose to share with the world at large.
Song of the Moment: This is a pointer to a page which contains the lyrics of a song which I find to be particularly appropriate for the moment. (Sorry it doesn't change as often as it should, but neither does the state of the world...)
Drawings: This is a collection of drawings I have done or have been given permission to post. Credit will be noted where applicable. (The racy ones live someplace special.)
Photos: This is a collection of photographs I may choose to share, subject to approval by the person in the photograph, if applicable. (No racy pixs, sorry. You want those, you can probably find them on the web).
Images: This is a collection of random other images, such as screenshots, desktop backgrounds or anything else deemed by me to be Really Cool. If the desktop screenshot is missing, it's probably because I've decided it's outdated and is no longer sufficiently Really Cool.
Links: This is where I keep a bunch of links to other places, such as Online Comics (my favourites), fonts, friends' pages and the like.
A snapshot of my desktop.
My resume: This is my resume. I chose, as my hobby, the field of Systems and Network Administration. I took, as a minor hobby, programming. Professionally, I'm really a musician (but don't let the total lack of performances fool you. Really. Ask my Mom, if you know her). It's always been something of a source of amusement that my hobbies pay better than my profession.
Hacker's Corner: This page contains tips on programming and systems administration.
Enjoy the site, such as it is. Eventually I will also have links to pages dealing with role-playing gaming. Of course, after the WTC collapse, I wonder if I can continue on with this, in any meaningful capacity. Maybe run a bounty hunting campaign (but whom to hunt? Bin Laden or Dumb Dubya?). [oh, and please, if you're going to give me grief for criticising our clueless leader, you'd better have a very intelligent argument for it.]
