Who I Am
You know what?
It’s really none of your business. THIS is all you need to know.
Hi Carl, I found your blog through the Simon Jester Project. I was wondering if you’re still doing anything with that site? It seems a bit antiquated, and I’d like to contribute some new content/get rid of that awful comic sans font if possible.
Hi Carl, I’m currently re-reading ‘Net Assets’ in .pdf format I appear to have found on your site years ago.
If I remember correctly, a few years ago I even managed to send you a few FRNs in appreciation. Have no idea when it was, and if, again, I remember correctly it was anonymous cash ($20-30).
My point, and I do have one, (to steal from Degeneres) is that in trying to find your site I found ‘Net Assets’ on Amazon, apparently the unauthorized version.
What I wanted to ask you was, if I had found the ,pdf file again on your site, if I could publicize it (along with your mid-point request for remuneration) on Facebook. If that is no longer available, as might be the case, then I will attempt to find the authorized distribution point and point my ‘friends’ in that direction.
With a little luck you’re still reading this.
I have enjoyed your work. Thank you.

I’m currently reading Net Assets, and I must say, it is superior to Atlas Shrugged in every way. Yet what I wanted to ask you about was if there were a theme song to your novel, what do you think that would be?
Just as Atlas Shrugged has “The John Galt Theme,” and Alongside Night has the “Alongside Night Theme,” may I suggest Carl Stuvek’s “The Prodigal” as a candidate for the theme of Net Assets? I figured a more bluegrass theme was more appropriate, since it appears that the majority of the novel takes place in Texas.
In the Powerball-scale unlikely event NA needs a theme song, three tunes come to mind.
1. Final Countdown, Europe: straightforward enough
2. Firefly Theme, Whedon: just because
3. No High Ground, Leslie Fish: ’cause sometimes there is (see “DJ” in The Anarchy Belt)
I’m not familiar with Stuvek, or “The Prodigal,” and a quick casual search didn’t turn up that song.
#2 for sure because we must forever remind Fox what shits they are for canceling that piece of genius.
Hi Carl, are you still at the same snail mail address in Lyndeborough? Re-Re-Re-reading Net Assets and would like to resend some FRNs. I’d also like to email my .pdf file to a friend or friends who would enjoy it. Okay? Thanks Terry
My Latin is poor and rusty and the interwebz failed me. What is the translation of si nullus umor fornicari eis?
Googly Latin for “Fuck them if they can’t take a joke.” (Literally “if they lack humor, fornicate them,” which is as close as I could get it.)
I do believe you’re the first person curious enough to ask.
Fornicari gave it away.
You might find this site helpful:
It has these Latin phrases:
“Futue te ipsum!” – Go f*ck yourself!“Perite” – F*ck off!
Lol, cool. That make sense.
Google translate renders it as ‘to commit fornication, if no fluid at all by them?’, or ‘if there is no moisture from playing the harlot to them’.
Thanks for responding. Love the blog. I wandered over after someone linked your hunting post in a comment on TTAG.
