About Me

I have been a developer for 14 years programming in Java, Groovy, Python, C#, C and several other languages. I currently work for The Babcock and Wilcox Corporation where I develop boring Enterprise Technology, specifically creating and managing customizations to a large proprietary J2EE application. In my spare time however, I work on all sorts of projects using many technologies from writing C for AVR microcontrollers to Java web based applications for automating my home. This blog is a way for me to show off my projects and how I built them.

And here is my dungeon completed. I put down grey outdoor carpeting for the floor. This way it does not take a way from the dungeon look and I donít have to worry about spills! I did not have time or the budget this year for a ceiling so I decided to just use black plastic for the ceiling. I also created some nifty simple sconces to hold real jack-o-lanterns! I created 8 sconces and jack lanterns to line the walls of the dungeon.

Here is a picture of the right wall in the dungeon. I originally created 8 sconces and jack-o-lanterns to go on the 8 side stone columns of the dungeon. But later decide that it would look really neat to put two of the jack-o-lanterns on the back wall. Next year Iíll probably have 10 jack-o-lanterns in the dungeon.

Here is a picture of the left wall of the dungeon.

Here is a closeup of one of the jack-o-lantern sconces. I put two course screws through the shelf part of the sconce up into the jack-o-lantern to hold it in place. This way it could be relatively safe enough to put tea lights into the jack-o-lanterns.

Here is closeup of me next to one of the jack-o-lanterns.

And here I am in my haunted dungeon. Itís not extremely fancyÖ. but I constructed it in a way that I think will make a great base to build on. Each coming Halloween Iíll plus it with new and spookier features to make my haunted parties better every year!
