It has been many years that I have been active here. I don't know if anyone of the old crew is still around. I don't know if anyone will even see this post... tell me if you do.

I had moved from Dublin to Zurich and back and back again. I also continued blogging, although on my own site. I will perhaps become more active here again.

In 2014 or so I posted here after a long break to refer to my blog posts about South Sudan and the CP/M operating system. (No-one can argue that I didn't cover...

It really, really rubs me the wrong way to have to ask anyone for help, especially when it comes to money, but I'm in a jam. I lost my home back in 2010 and have been homeless since then. It it weren't for driving a truck for a living I would have no place to sleep at night.

I make ok money driving a truck, but not great. Between paying back child support, {I got behind when I was off work for over a year due to a car accident), which is over $210 a week from my paycheck, and just bas...
I was never a prolific JoeUser poster. But for the past several years, more often then not, whenever I try to comment on an article, I get an error message. Doesn't matter whether I am using Chrome or Firefox or IE. On the odd occasion it lets me post a comment, but the next time that I return I am out of luck again. Sigh!


I just tried commenting on both my post and Mason's post. Neither worked. When I try, I get a popup saying:

I know some of you clicking on this email are hoping that I’m here to tell you about Sins of a Solar Empire II.  I hope to be able to talk more about Sins of a Solar Empire more in the near future but today I wanted to make sure you know that we’re releasing a new RTS today that I think you might like: Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation.

In many respects, it’s Sins of a Solar Empire on the surface of a planet.

If you already know you want it, get it here: http://...
If you are like me you are probably the guy that people call for help on their computer.  Recently, I discovered the Intel Device Advisor.

It’s as brilliant in its concept as it is straight-forward in its implementation.

Here’s how it works:

You download it and run it.  It stays in the background for a long while (as in, days).  It then reports to you, based on your uses, things you might need and where you can get them.  This is something Windows should,...

Just some pretties for people who visit my home page…

Back in 2012, Stardock released Elemental: Fallen Enchantress.  It was the sequel to 2010’s Elemental: War of Magic.  War of Magic was an ambitious game but had a very rough launch due to its brand-new engine just not being able to handle the game.  We released a series of updates to address those problems but ultimately, we felt we needed to reward those who had bought into the early access.

With the launch of Fallen Enchantress, I sent out an email to all those who had boug...
So my son was engaged,  in October of 15. He proposed to her at the local pizza place,  he had them spell out "will you marry me?"  in green peppers!  The ring was placed in a box,  on top of the tray of garlic bread...

She was all happy,  showing one and all her ring.

October of 2016 my son was married to her.  Just her step-dad and 2 sisters on her side,  me,  my older sister,  and my oldest niece attended the wedding.

Because of ...

I'm currently in a motel room in Buffalo, NY. I delivered some snow removal stuff for a trade show. I arrived in Buffalo on Wednesday and sat in the marshaling yard until Friday evening when I finally got unloaded and then checked into the motel.

I'll be hanging out here until Wednesday when I reload and take the stuff back where I got it. Fun, fun.

Life has been, well, life. People come, people go. Good people die, bad people live on. 

These days I'm just doing my job....

I knew it had been a long while since I had posted here but I didn't realize it has been about 4yrs!  I have been living via cell phone during that time so popping on FB and Twitter has filled my social media time.  I recently went back to work at our office building so I'm back on the computer!

I keep up with some of my old JU buddies on FB.  I don't know if anyone who is on here these days even knows me.  I intend to start blogging again because I miss writin...


PHC Frigates To enforce the PHC charter, several prominent Post-Humans formed the “PHC Weapons consortium” in which they pooled their collective ideas into producing weaponized constructs.

The first results from this cooperative effort came in the form of what the PHC now classifies as “frigates”.

These early militarized constructs lack both the lethality and refinement of their more advanced cousins now classified as “Cruisers”.

For the first two years ...

This year marks the 25th anniversary of our spectacular product, Ozone-away.

My baby brother died of cancer on Saturday. He was a good man.


The terrain in Ashes of the Singularity is procedurally generated. This opens the door to randomly generated maps in the future despite being so large and so detailed.

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe , not get a absolute redesign from the 2010 `fluidic sculpture’. The only difference will include just some visual refresh on its design. The new cover will have a couple of ridges running from the grilles to the A-pillars.  There will also be sculptured bars fitted on the grillesimilar to the Sonata.  The  look of the car  makes the car look like the Tucson.

Nonetheless, the new changes of the car are nether the car cover. The features have...
