You have stumbled onto the home page of 1ceman.com - a humble, albeit exciting domain on the worldwide web. 1ceman, where Internal Control is Number One.  If you are really into Internal Control check out our companion website: Internal-Control



Ludicrous Musings
We humbly offer a smattering of articles from the serious and satirical pen of the 1ceman.
If you wear white shirts and skinny ties, conduct internal audits and take your job seriously, please bear in mind that satire may be injurious to your pompous pesonality.


It may be too late for you to get a life, so you will have to content yourself with bitter retrospection on your abject, purposeless existence.






CREATESPACE - Amazon's publishing arm happily offers  all four novels in print-on-demand (if only there was more demand!) and Kindle-book format (though paperbacks make better kindling).

Time to Get Organized
There is more to life than Internal Control (believe it or not).  Click on the button at left to go to www.timotoole.org  - home to a growing body of alleged wisdom and purported delight - including the 1ceman's dual-debut novels, and ongoing nature photography/videography. This includes photos featured periodically in the Albany Times Union.

Digital Photos
Here's the 1ceman's oldest batch of digital photos (taken with either a FujiFilm 1.3 megapixel camera, or an Olympus 2.1 megapixel camera). Photos have been downsized and compressed from their original size to save on web space.

Confused about pixels? Click here for a succinct look at the prevailing formats for computer monitors and digital cameras alike. 3:1 optical zoom plus $100 gets you at least 12 megapixels these days (now 16 megapixels is common and affordable). (Adobe PDF file going rapidly out of date - 13 KB)

GoDaddy.com gave me a sweet deal on unlimited web space at a ridiculously low price.  So click here for Ozymandias's home page for a growing section of cyber space devoted to digital photography.  We are now in the 12 to 14 megapixel class, so "unlimited" will come in handy.  Make that 20 megapixels as of July 2018.

Desktop Publishing
Sure, you can dress up your publications with digital photos, but there are others ways to package your words. Here are three compact MS Word documents which demonstrate how to use that ubiquitous word processor to mimic the expensive features of professional desktop publishing software.

Yes, you may use these as templates to display your own poignant prose.

Right click, then Save As.

You're welcome.
