Looking for the fish? was a technology blog turned business that I [Nicholas] operated from 2005 to 2009. In 2009 it became an actual [legal] business under the name helusionary, complete with tax ID.

Technology permeates every facet of our daily lives. Focusing on a single aspect is like staring at your feet while trying to walk (please don’t try). The Fish is here to offer an assortment of articles and topics as varied as your daily life. We strive for diversity and understandability. Where applicable we’ll link to sources and places where you can expand your knowledge. We do articles by request, and other than that we just write about whatever hits us. Feel free to drop us a line anytime. You don’t actually have to “hit”us. We’re always open to appraise or criticism.
The Foul Fish is maintained by me, Eidolon Night. An occassional guest blogger drops by with something interesting, but for the most part it’s just me. The door is always open to talented writers, artists, and code monkeys. The Foul Fish is happy to take on anyone who is willing to offer quality content. Be sure to check out the forums before you leave. Drop a line, insult someone, rant or do whatever you like. Nothing wrong with blowing a few bubbles, right?
