I added new category for my blog entries: Client. Technical. Architect. Not coincidentally Client Technical Architect (a.k.a. Software IT Architect) is also my job role at IBM. So the category is more and less related to my job role with following thoughts:
- Client. Client can be anyone outside of my own organization. Blog entries may include news about the client.
- Technical. Technical entries are somehow related to technology. Blog entries may include my OpenNTF project, Command Line Email Client for Lotus Notes, WordPress and IBM and non-IBM offerings.
- Architect. Entries may include general thoughts related and unrelated to clients or technology.
Standard disclaimer applies: The postings on this site are my own and don’t necessarily represent IBM’s positions, strategies or opinions.

Updated Dawn to Dawn at Smashwords. Includes now the same Preface as Truths, Half-Truths and Lies.
I’ll update other stories to include preface as soon as possible.
Here is the preface:
The Strangers’ Universe. One universe parallel to our own. One timeline from the beginning to the end. Many stories under one epic overarching story set across universe and time. The stories from the Strangers’ Universe told so far are: Truths, Half-Truths and Lies; End of an Era; Dawn to Dawn and Just Another Scout.
Each story is linked to other stories by one or more of the following: character, event, location or time. For example: Alex from Just Another Scout makes a brief appearance in Dawn to Dawn, and the brunette girl from Dawn to Dawn is one of the main characters in Truths, Half-Truths and Lies.
The events of End of an Era happen 200,000 years before the Revelation. Dawn to Dawn happens on May 27th, 2927, the day of the Revelation. Just Another Scout is set five years after the Revelation. Truths, Half-Truths and Lies happens between years 1947 and 2932, five years after the Revelation, so Chapter 5.8: Truths, Half-Truths and Lies happens at the same time as Dawn to Dawn, Chapter 6.0: The Next Dawn is a direct continuation of Dawn to Dawn, and Chapter 6.2: Our Raison D’être comes immediately after the epilogue of Just Another Scout.

The novel happens in the Strangers’ Universe just like my other stories. From the back cover:
In early 1947, a long-awaited message finally comes and the meeting between Commander Johnson and aliens, the Greys, is scheduled in Roswell, New Mexico. The meeting, and the deal made there, are the first steps on a journey that takes the Commander through the greatest conspiracy in history, over a thousand years to unified Earth, to distant worlds full of alien civilizations and through the first portents of a great war.
This story happens in the Strangers’ Universe: One universe parallel to our own. One timeline from the beginning to the end. Many stories under one epic overarching story set across universe and time. The stories from the Strangers’ Universe told so far are: Truths, Half-Truths and Lies; End of an Era; Dawn to Dawn and Just Another Scout.
The novel is available at Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/110000. After Smashwords has approved the novel, novel will be distributed to retailers: Apple, Sony, Barnes & Noble, Diesel and Kobo.
I will publish it at Amazon Kindle as soon as possible.
