Barcode experiments

My friend Skip wants to go beyond a Single Identification Number (SIN) and barcode everyone on the arm. This will put a dent in identity theft. I argue that it only opens up a market for skin tone self stick bogus barcode labels.

I had a project recently that got me thinking about barcodes. I learned how to manipulate images with PHP. I created my own barcode font and produced CODE 128 barcodes.

When the time comes you can get the graphics from my program and glue it to your arm.

Here is my example page.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
