Programming language question

Started Nov 3, 2019 0 Replies

      OK, so not exactly steampunk, but I've had good results getting answers from other steampunks in the areas of cryptography, botany, and entomology, so I'm giving this a try.      For a good 30+…Continue

Steam Powered Machine list...

    I'm trying to think up a list of steam powered machines that people find interesting, impressive, or fun, to see.   There's a reason, but telling it might be a spoiler.   Anyway, so far I have: …Continue

About you:
I am paranoid and suspicious by nature. Also terribly lazy. I spend a great deal of time inside my own head. I believe in Truth, Freedom, Justice, and Hope. I sleep a lot, and that lets me dream.

Since 2012 I have managed to type up several stories which take place in a steampunk universe. I suppose that makes me a writer, but I prefer the term "storyteller". I had some of these tales posted on the old steampunk empire site. I'm not certain what to do about them, at this point.

Steampunk, and Musical Machines

      [This was originally a post in a group I had created on the old Steampunk Empire website, dedicated to classical music, and its relationship to steampunk.]-      Machines used to play music are nothing new.  Carillons have been automated since at least the 17th century, and small music boxes have been around since at least the 18th.  By the 19th century, musical machines of many types began to be produced.  One of the most famous was the Panharmonicon, invented by Johann Nepomuk Maelzel. …See More

Programming language question

      OK, so not exactly steampunk, but I've had good results getting answers from other steampunks in the areas of cryptography, botany, and entomology, so I'm giving this a try.      For a good 30+ years, I have been completely unable to understand how loops and conditionals work in the C programming language.  This is becoming a major issue for me, since more and more modern languages (as used for things like Arduino) use the C conventions.  And I am not alone in my problem with this.  It…See More

CR&A Christmas Special Preamble

Posted on December 16, 2018 at 5:27pm 0 Comments



         Since it is seasonally appropriate, I am going to post the CR&A Christmas Special for 1905.  It is really meant to be read after finishing Chapter 23, so I'm going to fill in a little information so anyone reading will have some idea of who the characters are, and what's going on.  The rest will probably come across as mysterious, but that could be a good thing, since it may make readers curious about CR&A, more of their story, and the universe they live in.  Chapter 23…

Another Coincidence from the CR&A Universe

Posted on August 18, 2018 at 12:30am 1 Comment

      Note:  This is a continuation of blog posts I made on the old Steampunk Empire site, which vanished along with it.  They concerned some very strange coincidences surrounding my CR&A (Calloway, Regnad, & Associates) series of stories.  Rather than try and recreate those posts, I'm just going to pick up where they left off.

      A key event in the formation of the group that becomes CR&A occurs at a world's fair type of event scheduled to begin in May of 1905, in the…
