Introduction
I've written four books so far, all on now-dead tech products, so moving to fiction in order to keep my characters alive.

Dad, southerner blissfully transplanted to the PNW, writer, editer, improviser, attempted humorist.

And yes, I am that Amiga / flight simulator guy.

Bragging rights
Flew in an F-15. Watched two Space Shuttle Launches, Attended STS-135, Dryden, and KSC Orion NASA Socials!

Big on social media? Interested in seeing our first-ever asteroid sample-collecting spacecraft? Then apply to attend our #NASASocial on April 29 in Colorado. A group of social media users will get the chance to attend a one-day event and learn about our OSIRIS-REx mission. For more details and to apply, visit: http://go.nasa.gov/1SooNIJ

Forget flying to low earth orbit. I'll blow my fortune on a chance to spacewalk. So amazing to read about these experiences!
 
Astronaut Reid Wiseman shared this image from today's spacewalk tweeting "what an experience." His fellow spacewalker, ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst also tweeted "I do not have words to describe what we did today." The duo worked outside for six hours, thirteen minutes. They installed a degraded pump module on an external stowage platform and an electrical relay system that will provide backup power to the Mobile Transporter, which can move supplies on rails along the station's backbone, and the space station's robotic arm, Canadarm2.

Once again the Administration is trying to cut the planetary science budget, one of the few inspirational scientific endeavors the USA still pursues. Not only would we lose a chance at better understanding our solar system and universe, but millions of dollars already spent on in-progress programs would end up having been wasted.

Last year Congress saved NASA's planetary science program from these unreasonably large cuts. Please write to them and ask them to do it again.

With irrational, illogical budget cuts, and a sequester that harms public safety and hurts workers without doing anything significant to help the country's budget woes, the government is working hard to disable and damage important parts of America's infrastructure. Please help save these scientific programs which inspire youth and aid our understanding of the universe around us.

Looks like I never added a link to my blog on G+. Not much there now that social media has replaced so much of what we used to blog about, but if you want to read an adrenaline-fueled writeup of the the awesome experience of seeing the last Shuttle launch at the STS-135 NASATweetup, you can do that there.

There are also photos of snowy owls.

So a Higgs boson walks into a Catholic Church. The priest says "You can't be here!" The Higgs boson replies "But you can't have mass without me!"

Here's my review of the Pebble smartwatch. It definitely feels like a game-changing category to me: Pebble's not perfect, but I'm already addicted to its functionality. Check out the review for details.

If you shoot RAW photos with your digital camera, I highly recommend this: http://t.co/IefV4jR Super-fast, 64-bit support (unlike Canon/Nikon software), enhanced JPEG thumbnail preview speed, and more.

It not only lets me view thumbnails for RAW pics, and view them in Windows Live Photo Gallery, but it reads the 25MB RAW files created by my Canon T3i at ludicrous speed.
64 bit and 32 bit image decoders for Windows 7, Vista and XP SP3: CR2 codec, NEF codec, DNG codec and more.
