As many Game of Thrones fans will tell you, a lot of people die in the books and television series. Many have been executed for one or more crimes in varying ways, but one of the most common has been beheading. Jon Snow, played by actor Kit Harington, was drawn into a situation where he was forced to execute a fellow Watcher, but according to Entertainment Weekly, Harington  felt uncomfortable...

Hi folks!

It's been a while, but if you've stopped by here from time to time, you already know what I'm saying in this post. I have spent the last few weeks hand coding a brand new home page for myself, and I just launched it. There's still a lot to be done on it, such as implementing the old RSS feeds that I had going, adding comment support for posts, and making the logged in user features period. But this is a good start, and I'm excited...

I am not going to claim that I am a great writer, but I think I'm pretty good. I'm not going to pretend that I'm a genius at marketing, otherwise I'd be quite rich. But one thing I am going to do is throw a bit of my self-respect out the window and pimp my short story "Right and Wrong", now available for Barnes & Noble's Nook and

Despite all appearances on this web site, I am actively working on other projects and keeping my ass busy even in my unemployment.

If I'm not blogging on Fubar'ed, I may be working on a program and talking a bit about it on Bad Luck Software. I might even be put to various tasks for some evil genius, but that might just be a rumor....

As of today, I am no longer technically employed: my boss could no longer afford to pay me as a salaried employee, so now I am to be paid based on work that he requests me to do.


A good part of me thinks this is better because it will give me the time to do what I want rather than sitting here working on things for other people. And by this I mean that I can spend some time working on developing my Android applications more often, and during the week, not just nights and weekends....

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Ironically, this week has marked the sixth month since I filed for divorce from my wife of eight years. Legally speaking, though I have not gotten the final judgment yet, I'm a free man, but in reality I am just as much a prisoner as I was before I filed for divorce, just in a different way.

I'm just going to quickly cover a few topics here, all of which are late in relation to their significance. Please forgive me.

First of all, "Happy New Year!" and even "Happy Chinese New Year!".

Second, I'm proud to see that we citizens of the United States have managed to pull ourselves together enough to welcome President Obama into the White House. May his reign be just and fair.

Third, I only discovered this yesterday courtesy of a friend. Fear the evil.

I'm writing this entry to explain why I intend to go back to work on my long dormant web browser project Themis.



This is in direct response to Stephan Assmus's respose in the "Non-BFS file system support" thread on the Haiku mailing list on November 26, 2008. From his message:




This is such an insane amount of work you guys are talking about here, I would suggest you...

I am a thirty six year old, Black American male. I grew up looking towards role models like Martin Luther King, Jr., and Jesse Jackson, hoping one day to inspire people as they have inspired me. I'll probably never achieve any level of greatness in my life, but the one thing I never expected to happen within my life time, much less when I'm still so young, was that a Black man would be elected President of the United States.


I had always hoped that one day, this country would make...
