Change often comes uninvited

You will notice that my website has a new look. I’d like to tell you that it was the result of market research to create the best format for my upcoming Amiga release, and it was rolled out after months of careful planning. Actually, I changed the format in about an hour because an updated WordPress […]

The Crisis by Thomas Paine
“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated”
Thomas Paine
