Welcome to my woefully out-of-date website.
But I have plans -- BIG plans. Plans for deleting obsolete content. Plans for refurbishing old but relevant content. Plans for shiny new content.

BIG plans! Which I will get to next week. (Would I lie? Again?)

Seriously, though -- the underlying technology of this website is a bit long in the tooth, so I am going to put the hood up and convert it over to some sort of content management system, which should make it easier to keep up to date. The Foreign Policy article has also energized me to finally start my Fleet Operations blog as well. (Yeah, I've been saying this for a while -- the holdup has been teaching myself WordPress and finding the right service provider to host it. Aargh!)

Books, books, BOOKS! [Books]
My library currently has in excess of 9,000 volumes; here's what I've read (and liked), what I'm reading, and what's in the queue -- and a link or two to my favorite book-sites.

Fun and Games [Games]
Every game player is a frustrated game designer, and I am no exception. Here's some stuff I've written or been involved with, stuff I am working on, Gaming "Hints from Heloise", and links to some game sites on the net.

Life, The Universe, and Everything [Essays]
A flippant title for a section with some serious essays, not necessarily by me.

Miscellaneous Items [Miscellaneous ]
Miscellaneous pages which do not fit elsewhere.

Frequently asked questions [FAQ]
About the site ("We don't need no stinkin' graphics!") and about me.
