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.

Double Bucky, you're the one,
You make my keyboard so much fun,
Double Bucky, an additional bit or two, (Vo-vo-de-o)
Control and meta, side by side,
Augmented ASCII, 9 bits wide!
Double Bucky, a half a thousand glyphs, plus a few!

Oh, I sure wish that I,
Had a couple of bits more!
Perhaps a set of pedals to make the number of bits four.

Double Double Bucky! Double Bucky left and right
OR'd together, outta sight!
Double Bucky, I'd like a whole word of,
Double Bucky, I'm happy I heard of,
Double Bucky, I'd like a whole word of you!
-- to Nicholas Wirth, who suggested that an extra bit
be added to terminal codes on 36-bit machines for use
by screen editors. [to the tune of "Rubber Ducky"]
