A New Beginning

A few reasons I'm starting a new blog and discontinuing this one.  One is that recently allowed me to use my main account on blogger instead of my secondary account for google services that haven't been updated for custom domain accounts.  Another is a bit of a bad taste in my mouth from the results while having this location.  Also, I made a new layout that I like better. 

So, if you found yourself here looking for new posts, go to for the new blog.  At the moment, it seems to be mostly a commentary on my experience writing more in depth articles on the same subjects at

I'll see you over there!

Hollow Matrix - Long Live Your Memory

Hollow Matrix was a brilliant place (formerly known as Broadie Car Park).  It was a place where web developers gathered to share brilliant ideas, to help each other through development blocks, and to just find friendships.  It was also a place of violent drama.  A place I wouldn't send my daughter in the dead of night.

But all in all, it was a home to me for a decent portion of my life.  But, alas, it seems that the time has come, like the bubble pop of the dot-com boom.  The bubble really popped long ago, but now, the day has come when finally has outlived its existence.  One thing is, I hate when I go to a website and find that it has been replaced by a url just looking for link click revenue, so is forwarding to my own website and will for the foreseeable future at least with a memorial here that you can read.

Edit 2010-09-22:  Okay, I put up a blog on religious issues if anyone likes.  Obviously the same URL:

Why I Am Leaving Catholicism

Though I have not filed a Actus formalis defectionis ab Ecclesia catholica, it should be clear to many that I have left the Catholic Church. None in the Church has yet ask me why I have left (which is a matter of curiosity and some concern to me), however, I feel it is good to let these things be known.

I should start at the beginning to tell what caused me to question the Catholic Church. When I was a child, I was raised as a Catholic but found little use for it as I became an older teen and young adult. I abandoned it in favor of the moral relativism I found in the media and among some of my "funner" friends. Somehow I was never able to shake the idea that there was a god out there, but as in the movie The Devil's Advocate, I found him an "absentee landlord." I stopped attending service and basically became a hedonist. After I'd had enough of the ill effects of the hedonism lifestyle and felt like settling down with the woman I love, I returned to Church attendance primarily in exchange for being allowed to have my wedding there (I'm sorry, but that's the honest truth), but after my wedding, I gradually fell away again.
