everything but
the home of akardam.net
but the.kitchen.sink
Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

akardam.net has evolved over the years. It has usually included a collection of my projects, in varying states of completeness, photos of people & places & things in my life, and sometimes random thoughts from my stream of conciousness, though my ability to maintain a journal suffers mostly from my lack of something interesting to say on a regular basis.

Anyway, if you're reading this I'm glad you've come across it and as always I hope you find something interesting or amusing here before your travels take you down another random set of tubes.

Hard Copies and Chmod

And everyone thinks computers are impersonal
cold diskdrives hardware monitors
user-hostile software

of course they're only bits and bytes
and characters and strings
and files

just some old textfiles from my old boyfriend
telling me he loves me and
he'll take care of me

simply a discarded printout of a friend's directory
deep intimate secrets and
how he doesn't trust me

couldn't hurt me more if they were scented in lavender or mould
on personal stationery
