I have migrated my flashy homepage to this lousy blog. I hope to give it a professional look now. The color scheme does not hint at anything. Over the next few months, now that I will be mostly free, I will update this site more frequently. Feel free to check out the pages linked in the top bar. I have added a host of things including emoji support!
There is a pertinent story about a man who was working on an oil platform in the North Sea. He woke up one night from a loud explosion, which suddenly set his entire oil platform on fire. In mere moments, he was surrounded by flames. Through the smoke and heat, he barely made his way out of the chaos to the platform’s edge. When he looked down over the edge, all he could see were the dark, cold, foreboding Atlantic waters.
As the fire approached him, the man had mere seconds to react. He could stand on the platform, and inevitably be consumed by the burning flames. Or, he could plunge 30 meters in to the freezing waters. The man was standing upon a “burning platform,” and he needed to make a choice.
