One down… one to go…

No, I have not forgotten the blog (though it would appear that way). I've busy; very busy. At the beginning of March, my co-workers and I were told that we need to get some certifications for Microsoft's CRM. The goal was to get it done as soon as possible; thus I've been hitting the books... Continue Reading →

End Times: Civilized

It was quiet. Eilen could have said it was as quiet as a crypt. What once was a shelter against the elements of winter became a tomb in the spring. She stepped through the opening where there had once been a pair of heavy steel doors. One door hung to the side, barely held up... Continue Reading →

Dear Leader’s Wall

I have wondered why Dear Leader has been so adamant that he gets his wall. Surely, anybody with a half of a brain knows that a wall will not stop the problem that its proponents claim it will solve. I think I have a working theory. Dear Leader does not care whether or not spending... Continue Reading →

End Times: New Conference

There was much activity as the men entered the conference room. Information drones which were sleeping in perches near the ceiling came to life. Their red beady eyes scanned the room and they took positions and hovered facing the stage. This was not the first time Brien attended a press conference. Those conferences were for...

End Times: Golden Parachute

“Welcome to Rhineshire Tower. Good afternoon, Lady Rhineshire. Shall I inform your uncle and the board that you have arrived?” “Yes, you may Echo.” The egg-shaped android took a position next to and slightly behind Luanne as she walked through the sliding crystalline doors and into the marbled lobby of the tower. Normally, one could... Continue Reading →

End Times: Lots of Hot Air

“I assure you, Mr. Martin, it is a standard non-disclosure that we have every sub-contractor sign.” Brien looked up from the video tile, a portable version of a video panel, and at Director Shyinled who smiled at him. Brien responded, “If you don’t mind, Director, I would like to make sure of that myself.” The... Continue Reading →

New house guest

For Christmas, I got my wife one of those Echo Dots from Amazon (and one for myself 😀). After the Christmas chaos died down a bit, I finally took them from their boxes and set them up. Alexa, as she calls herself, is like a house guest just sits around all day listening to our... Continue Reading →

End Times: Pink slip

“I AM WAITING FOR AN ANSWER!” Johnathan ground his teeth together in a vain effort to keep calm as the AI did not wait for an answer. It did not matter, Alfa always had a way of evoking anger in him. As normal for it, Alfa’s avatar occupied a quarter of one of his video... Continue Reading →

End Times: Omega protocol

“Please state the nature of the security emergency.” The deep voice boomed at Johnathan and he could feel his body shake. The sudden jolt shook him so much that he almost fell from his seat. He knew that Luanne gave this AI a distinctive voice. What he did not realize was how distinctive it was.... Continue Reading →

End Times: Annoying Pests

"Commander Marion, can you confirm that Rhineshire Central Security Administration is under a security lockdown?" The information drone hovered before Johnathan waiting for an answer. It interposed itself between him and the doors to the administration office. Johnathan tried to sidestep it but it swung sideways to block him. He cursed at the drone in... Continue Reading →
