Standing watch at the gates the night sky cold in its darkening. Too many this time of year my soul cries for lost light. In the distance a flame dances requiem for those lost. Pity for those found cold steel rests in my hand. Time is fleeting the night wan...

These about me sections drive me nuts, but I will keep tuning it until I like the way it reads. It might seem a bit disjointed at the moment, but that can be changed. After all, the Internet is never constant, it is always in a state of flux.
For those who haven't seen me in ages, very little over the years has changed. I'm still very much the geek I have always been and I am proud of it.
As a student of the world in which we all live, I hope to learn all I can and pass the tests of time. There is so much out there to learn and digest, one lifetime doesn't seem enough to experience it, but I am doing the best I can.
There are three very special women in my life. My mother, my wife and my daughter. I strive not embarrass them to much, but I'm sure on occasion I do.
I've been online in one form or another for over 20 years. I started out on a Commdore 64 with a 300bps modem connecting to local BBSes and ran a BBS myself called The Grapevine. Then a BBS called Cyberspace (I was Blackhawk or Finn) came along, it was Lincoln's first multi-node (Line) BBS. After that, another major change in the BBS community shook the foundations, multi-city BBSes, Metropolis Big 12 was the one I hit and I was closer to the net. Then Metro allowed us to connect via LYNX to the Internet and I was hooked. Soon that is where I wanted to be. After obtaining an AOL account, I was soon on my way to exploring the Internet and I haven't left since.
Over the years, I've learned more and more about computers and they seem to be where my hobbies are centered.
Theology has also been an interest of mine for about the same length of time. I have studied many faiths and have decided that all have validity to a point and that there is no ONE true religion in the world today. For more info on that subject, check out Armchair Theonomy.
My latest project is trying to develope a true online presence through a blog and a web site. I'm still develping exactly where I want to go with all this and wil eventually have things figured out. Also, I want to try and publish a bi-monthly fiction blog. If anyone is interested in contributing, please let me know. Just know that I don't even get paid for this stuff, so if you are looking for a paying gig, you might want to go elsewhere.
Thanks for reading this, if you are still here. ;)
