New articles, photographs, etc.
It has been a little while since I last updated this site. I have two new articles to share. The first article is published in the Ancient Origins 3rd Year Anniversary e-book, Unraveling Ancient Mysteries. My article is titled, In Search of King Alcinous: Who were the legendary Phaeacians?

Thank you Accuweather. I did need your assistance in determining whether 3 degrees Fahrenheit was very cold or just cold.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I can now officially say that I "literally wrote the book on IBM Hybrid Cloud", well technically "Hybrid Cloud Security with z Systems." Just published by Linux Journal and sponsored by IBM.

Not sure if I should be concerned. Is -0°F colder than 0°F?

(Obviously a bug in the software.)

January 1st has always been a special day in our house. Although this year it is more special than the previous. Nemo turned 12 today!!! While his tumor is currently kept at bay with his chemotherapy treatment, every additional day we get with him is always a blessing.

Happy Birthday little buddy!!!

Story

Bring me my monocle. I want to look rich.
Introduction
By profession I am an experienced Linux/UNIX developer working on embedded, kernel/device driver, and application development. I am fluent in Greek and even spent some time teaching myself an introductory level of both Biblical Greek and Hebrew (along with a general understanding of Semitic grammar); which in turn was used to publish two of my three books based on history and theology. I am also author of multiple Linux related articles published in issues of Linux Journal, Linux Pro, and Linux+ magazines. When I am not busy being a good husband and an excellent father (of two), I spend my free time writing device drivers and applications for Linux projects. This includes writing kernel code.

Technical published articles include:
  • Hybrid Cloud Security with z Systems (Linux Journal Geek Guides 2016)

  • Linux RAM Disks (Linux+ 4/2009)
  • Linux Storage Management (Linux+ 3/2009)
Shortened list of historical & theological published materials:
  • The Enigmatic Etruscans (2014)
  • Identifying the Teresh of the Sea Peoples (2014)

The Field Museum is a great and interactive place to take the children. Every now and then, they will present a worthwhile exhibit that may cater more to an adults interest but the rest of the permanent exhibits are definitely geared towards the children, which isn't really a bad thing. Anyway, my only complaint is that it can be extremely pricey. Even more so if you are not an Illinois resident. Think about it, admission + special exhibits + parking + food + anything from the gift shops.

This place is extremely convenient when buying some of the specialty dog food or even to get a quick nail trim. I haven't used the groomers but everyone is super friendly and makes sure my dog is taken care of every time he comes in. Be warned, there are two friendly cats roaming around, so if you have cat allergies, it may affect you.

Convenient, quick, and affordable. It would be much easier to get to if it weren't for the horrible construction blocking both Adams and the bridge leading to this location (2016).

When the Christmas holidays or the summer season comes around, this is typically a go to spot for us. They have everything we need to decorate (both interior and exterior) or prepare ourselves for the season and at fairly reasonable prices.

The service is a bit slow but the pork kabob is perfectly seasoned and delicious. The entire one side of the restaurant opens its view up to Halstead. I usually go during the lunch hour when it is quieter but from what I hear, this location is typically busy in the evenings and caters better to the night crowd.

This Binny's is in a very convenient location. The prices are competitive and reasonable.The staff seem to know their alcohol. I am routinely impressed with the depth of knowledge some of them hold for even the most obscure of beers.

If gyros is what you want, gyros is all they have got. They offer different types of gyro meats and sauces. The food is good and seasoned just right. You also get a lot of gyro meat! The restaurant isn't easy to spot. It is buried behind another. The atmosphere isn't anything to write home about but the restaurant is definitely worth the visit.
