This website is the only source for accurate and authentic information about me.


Current Blog

My current technology blog runs on WordPress and is hosted in Azure. I don't write a lot on it, but I do put down interesting things I learn or go through now and again.

Stories / Fiction

I am currently writing a whole bunch of stories (fiction). These are short stories. Some have just one "chapter", the others are short novels [under 15 chapters].

Singing / Music

I am trying to be an amateur singer. Mostly they are karaoke, some of them are covers. I am learning to sing mostly on my own and with a little help from very good singers.

IT Consult

With 23 years of experience in IT, I provide application and technology consulting in a range of areas leveraging my broad and deep skills.

Theoritical cosmology

I hypotheize, theorize and explain the mysteries of Cosmology and Creation. How was the Universe created? How do stars form? How does it all work? At the macro and micro levels.

Poetry

I have a collection of over 300 poems and song lyrics composed by me through my life. Most of them make sense. Some of them are nonsense and some of them are brilliant.

Tech Articles (ARCHIVED)

Articles I have written have been published in many technology magazines. There were originally a collection of nearly a thousand articles, most of them seem to have disappeared now.

Blog (Archived)

I used to blog a lot. On various topics. But I have created and destroyed the blog site(s) so many times that not all of the articles are still around. I had ported some of them over to codeproject.com and these are still accessible.
