Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

Is this pitiful or is this what everyone has to do? Even though iTunes says the music videos I bought can be shared on five devices, I couldn't even share them on one android smartphone.

I solved it by downloading the same videos from YouTube and then shipping them to my phone. Seems like fair use since I already bought the videos in question but simply couldn't figure out how to get them off my laptop...

DH assures me that a good proportion of the internet consists of people bitching about how bad iTunes sucks. Also since Ukrainian iTunes won't take my worthless American dollars I downloaded that video from YouTube as well. If it ever pops up in the American catalogue, I'd be happy to ship them the two bucks. Ya know?


Speaking of the march of time, less than a decade ago, we couldn't even open yahoo email in Nairobi before the internet connection timed out.

Now the Kenya army is tweeting updates on its assault against the terrorists in Westgate Mall.

Seems a bit strange but OK. Go team. We're glad you're not there to feed the terrorists pastries. You can hose them all down with gunfire as far as I'm concerned. Seems to be what they did to the innocent shoppers.
