I make software and sometimes other things.


Due to Blogger's termination of support for FTP, this blog is no longer active.

It is possible that some links from here, particularly those within the site, are now broken. If you encounter one of those, your best bet is to go to the new front page and hunt for it from there.

Most, but not all, of the blog's posts are on this page; the archives are here.


My friend Lawrence pointed me to a web page (static local copy) that appears to be some kind of Markov-chain-generated linkfarm nonsense, that contains both of our names. This shocked us at first, but there are a number of logical explanations; for example, Lawrence has commented on my blog, so the two names do coexist elsewhere on the web. Still, I'm not completely sure that's what is going on here, and regardless it's a little bit spooky.

This reminded me a little of Lawrence's outstanding short story Coding Machines, so I'll take this opportunity to plug that.
