Based on Your Browsing History, Amazon Recommends...

I take a perverse satisfaction in these screen captures from my Amazon account. Taken as a group, they paint quite the picture. A motion activated light A dustbuster Wireless video camera with night vision A life sized animatronic clown 12 D-Cell Batteries Mask Latex Cable Splitter Sounds like the making of a hell of a …

Thirteen Years

Started in 2001, this is yet another anniversary of Glen Green Dot Com as measured by orbits around the good old sun. If nothing else, I get points for perseverance.

What’s Old is New Again

With a little elbow grease, I’ve dusted off the first of my legacy website posts and present them framed within the latest iteration of GlenGreen.com. These old posts were languishing in purgatory but now I’ve setup permanent redirects and moved the first year – 2001 to the 2012 redesigned site. 2001 represented some of my …

Twelve Years

‘2001’ still sounds like the future to me. Hell, I grew up watching Space 1999 and could hardly fathom that far flung future when we’d have cool spaceships like the Eagle Transporter. But now, 2001 seems but a mere moment ago and yet, twelve years ago today I launched the first crude instance of Glen …

Electric Libraries and Thigh-high Mud

Some days the internet is a wonder, where I feel my mind pulled at light speed through a nearly infinite maze of electric libraries and forums – each more interesting than the last. Other days, it’s a slog through thigh-high mud just to answer the door for a spammer or inane Facebook post. My evening …

Paris for a while

October found me back in Paris. – A city that has always been a delight to me. I’m home now, but the romance of the city lingers in my mind. I guess it goes to show that you just never know where life will take you. You search for answers. You wonder what it all …

Behold! No banner ads! That’s right, I laid down 15 buckoroos so that you – my faithful viewer aren’t troubled by distracting ads at the bottom and top of my Web pages. That’s ‘Glen Green Dot Com’ for you.

Under Construction – In Perpetuity

Almost any good Web site should be considered to be constantly under construction and so no apologies should be made. However, I feel that I must make some apologies for the extensive construction to be found here. As I migrate over my old content, viewers are likely to find an occasional dead or not yet …

Welcome – 2002

2002 – Welcome. Far above the Ephel Dúath in the West the night-sky was still dim and pale. There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the …

Credit Where Credit is Due

I originally credited Ron Edwards for much of the inspiration for publishing a Web site. I now need to credit Teddy Carroll* for much of the inspiration for improving my Web site. I intend to take some direct cues from Teddy, such as a note on the book(s) I’m reading, the music I’m listening and …

The First Redesign

I’m going to try and rework this site a bit. When I first laid it out I put zero thought into structure or design. But since I have done a fairly faithful job of updating the site I’ve decided to try and tweak the site to make it a bit less sloppy. I still don’t …
