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.

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!!!

Enjoying this 25 oz. bottle of beer inspired by a 2700 year old recipe of the ancient Etruscans (modern day Tuscany); before the region was introduced to wine. It is pretty damn tasty.

Basic Information
Bring me my monocle. I want to look rich.
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.

I ordered an urn for my late dog and it was exactly what the website claimed it was. The quality was good and I couldn't have been more pleased. It was a perfect way to honor our recently passed member of the family.

This is my favorite museum in the entire Chicago land area. It is a relatively decent size and you can spend half a day viewing all of the historical artifacts and sculptures. The primary focus of this museum and the campus' archaeology department is the ancient Near East. So it is super exciting to see things from cultures less commonly shown in more mainstream museums. You will find items from Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Hittite / Luwian, Israelite, Egyptian, Persian, Nubian, etc. cultures. I love this museum so much I consider it a second home and have visited it more times than I can count.
