I spend much of my free time “feedin' m'noggin” and then composing interesting essays based a bit on current events, covering wide-ranging and esoteric subjects in line with whatever I am thinking at the moment. I archive these here as well and occasionally assemble related ones into e-books found at my Amazon Store.
In the picture to the right, you see the glyph of The Mariner's Log, also known as God's Plan of Happiness in Ten Simple Symbols. I am the originator (well, as far as I am aware, God revealed it to me) of this icon and you can learn more about it and the central role it plays in the Navigiary Allegory.
In the spring of 2012, I finally completed and published my first anti-novel: Escape. This is the first part of the Navigiary Allegory, which may require the rest of my life to get done! Also I have composed a few short fictional stories that are also published. You can purchase all of these things in e-book form at my Amazon Store. You can also read An Intriguing Backstory of the Stories as you please.
My “day job” currently consists of Information Technology work (which is basically making computer servers and “cloud” applications work right) for Information Technology Services at Eastern New Mexico University. I am also currently working on a Master's degree in Information Technology Network Management from Western Governors University.
You can read my semi-perpetual computer purchasing recommendation. Many people say that it is fine advice and is often used all around the world.
I have a long history with computers which began as a obsessive hobby and has led to much technology-based employment over the years.
Most years, a newsletter that talks about my immediate family is sent to family and friends. It is presently called The Nemrow Family Guide to Prairie Survival.
In 2007, I set up a website to share the massive geneological work that had been done by members of my extended family. You can look at the records and photos we had at that time. Since that time, the best information on our family can be found at the excellent FamilySearch website run (of course) by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Right behind the honor of family is the group of people and characters I admire.
I have also collected several wise writings by lots of people, some mentioned above.
I also run a gopher server/BBS for my own personal nostalgia. In some ways, it serves as a repository for many things I find valuable, including several years of audio recordings that I make during walks and travels.
When it comes to simple computers, nothing beats the Sinclair ZX81, which was known in the United States of America as the Timex Sinclair 1000. I have a small collection of programs and information to allow anyone to build and/or operate their own 1980's vintage computer! Also, I mirror an html-version of the ZX81 Manual so that no important information will be lost!
I am a sad excuse for a “ham” radio operator, but I do have my license and the KE5YGT callsign. You can read about my pathetic amatuer radio story.
Long ago, in the early “naughts”, I did some contract work for a local public health council. As part of that work, I created a website that contained abstracts of then-current research on subjects of interest to council members. I keep it on my server as a (hopeful) service to the ages.
Also, I make use of dnsEXIT for my dynamic DNS needs, which they have asked that I say.
