Kirksville native, laborer, filmmaker, sailor, technologist. I've had an interest in how things work since childhood and today making things work is my job description. I'm an IT generalist/consultant and database developer, and for the last several years I've concentrated on simplifying and securing small business technology. I intend that complexity stay inside the machine, and that your experience outside it be productive and pleasant. When you make technology decisions there are many sources for information and advice, but it's sometimes overwhelming to sift through. So I'll render fact, opinion and personal experience into palatable portions that I hope you'll find helpful. I'm not a tech evangelist, rather I play a balancing act, because it's easy to collect a closet full of expensive, planet killing junk. Please stay tuned...

If the end of the Mayan calendar signals a Biblical-sized flood, one man will be really prepared.



After 20 years, Johan Huibers has finished building a full-scale Noah's Ark, People reports.



The Dutch man used the Bible as his guide, converting cubits to modern measurements. His Ark is 427 feet long, 85 feet wide and 75 feet high.



Which shows have been renewed and which have been canceled?



Still, Huibers' Ark has nothing to do with a specific impending date. "I had a call from American television," he told the Associated Press. "This has nothing to do with the end of the Mayan calendar." Instead, he says, it's about what the Bible prophesizes. "I want to make people question that so that they go looking for answers," he says.



The Ark is currently home to a small petting zoo, a restaurant and a movie theater.
