hello, world

TL;DR

I'm Michael, I've got something to say

Hello, world. I'm Michael. Since 1998 I've made this website the home of my writing and photos and experiments. I've posted one of my short stories. I've written about launching a business that failed and I've published a Japanese kanji-study tool I made for my kids. I've written to remember the dead and about being the crap-spattered target of birds. And I've written about creating a custom version of Dungeons and Dragons to play with my kids.

This site runs on a content management system that I wrote. I'm just that. much. of. a. nerd. To paraphrase the immortal Van Halen, "I'm not like this because I have a website, I have a website because I'm like this." I decided on a new domain name in 2019 to amalgamate my personal and professional sites.

Nowadays I find myself writing about my projects and hobbies. Oh, and work—but I don't do that here.

 
 

rand()m quote

If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

—Roald Dahl
