I'm going to go play Alpha Centauri now. I'll post again soon.

I talked to my learned cousin. He thinks my utopia is a dystopia. I might have missed some of the finer points. This may also be a case of the heaven-hell syndrome.

I went to the local all candidates debate tonight. The NDP won. I will still not vote for them for one reason -- 25% of their internal vote is dedicated to the unions. That leaves too much power in union hands. That is wrong to me. Each person--or person under the law, including unions--should have only have one vote.
I love my new "hacker" hat. I got the white one. Was there any doubt?

I went looking for my metal pot today. I found a good candidate in a scrap tire. I will have to go back and get it. I also made a form for a cement pot. It will be used to keep some rock moss. The larger tire pot will probably house a tamarack tree or maybe a pine.
I haven't worked on my book since I last posted. Hmm, I will one of these days.
Taxes have finally been sent away. I will be real happy when I get a check from the government.
I have also started working on a sign for the zetes, I hope to give it to the club as a gift.

Just wanted to let everyone know I am not dead.

Yay. I almost got the first chapter done in real English. I am wondering if I should write the book in my version of phonetic English or the proper English. I think it might add a demension to the book if the language is advanced too. However, every book that uses advanced langauge usually turns me off.

Went to the city today. Got myself a plant. I finally added a fern to my collection. It is of the genus and species vary according to source. However, it is called the rabbit foot fern. This is a link to information on the plant.
My collection is almost complete. All I need now is a saprophyte and a plant with black leaves. I am actively looking for a Black Tree Aeonium, Aeonium arboreum var artopurpureum 'Schwartzkopf'.Picture and details of the plant. Black mondo grass looks promising too.
All this about plants and not much on my transhumanizing. I will get around to writing the first chapter. I promise. Soon.

For starters we will eliminate all the letters that can be duplicated by other letter combinations. So it goes that x, c, and q are on that list. Yet there are those sounds not covered by a single letter, appropriately like ‘ch’, ‘th’, ‘sh’, ‘oo’ and possibly ‘oy’ are in need of symbols.
Oh yes, I think we need a possession symbol like the roman final sigma, only for possession and not pluralization. If this is not the case it doesn’t matter what we use as a possession indicator the its, it’s problem is possible. However, if we choose to ignore this and just say that this is a special case to be aware of, we can live without this symbol. In the end, I think it will be for the best not to have another symbol to know.

I am getting ready to publish the first chapter of my new futuristic book on the blog. It predicts life in one thousands years from now. I know Futurama does this, but I think my world is a little more realistic.
