I have been using CThreePO.com as a catch-all for anything that comes into my mind for many years, now. I have a few essays or ideas that do not fit in anywhere so they wound up here.
These are a few of these articles:
Extreme Poker – My buddies and I have been meeting since high school to play cards. We have played Bridge, Pinochle, a game called Rook, Hearts, and a dozen kinds of Poker. We now play a game that has evolved over the years to use two decks and three hands per person. It is extremely complicated, but very addictive. The rules evolve and we add new rules several times a year.
Google Map of Middle Earth – was fooling with the Google Map API and decided to use it to Map Tolkien’s Middle Earth. I found a huge map and used the API to chop it up. I only wish that I could find a map with more detail.
The Hand of Zorgo – I wrote this SF story as a joke and then it was lost in a disk cleanup. A cleaned up version was sold to SamsDotPublishing.com, but this is the original one, found on an old backup CD years after I wrote it.
