Server's back

Did you miss me? ;)

I've completed the lion's share of my server upgrades. All that's left are a few minor tweaks. So if you see something that I'm hosting that's not working right, please let me know so I can find the problem.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog

A wonderful party

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"74","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","style":"","title":"New Year Party","alt":"New Year Party"}}]]Thanks to everyone who came to our party last night. It was great seeing so many people getting together to have a good time. At last count, I think we had 32 people here over the course of the evening, toasting marshmallows, playing Charades, eating, talking around the fire, comparing the various fireworks displays going on around us, or sitting in the hot tub.

The 80/20 rule for churches

New Year's Party

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"74","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","style":"","title":"New Year","alt":"New Year"}}]]We're having a New Year's Eve party at our house. Everyone's invited. The festivities will be starting around 8PM, and will go until whenever. We're hoping that the weather will cooperate, and we can have the pool heated and ready for a "first swim of the new year." ;) The hot tub will be going in any case.

Time to start encrypting email

I know, I know. Wendy (and probably others) thinks I'm a "privacy nut." I digitally sign all my emails, and would prefer it if all the email I sent and received were encrypted as well. But read on.

Ecu-menace

I guess I really need to start watching Steve Colbert more. In this video he picks on the Pope. I broke out laughing several times.

Christ follower vs Christian

These "Mac vs PC" parody videos are wonderful! I burst out laughing several times.

My newest toy!

Last night, while Wendy was off meeting with "the girls" I headed down to the Guitar Center. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to buy, based on what I had read on-line. I was assuming that the store wouldn't have the exact bass I was looking at (and I was correct).

Increasing voter turnout

I have an idea that I think would go a long way toward increasing voter turnout in elections. It seems so simple ...

We have the V Chip in televisions which can block out inappropriate content. What if we set up a system so that, when you vote, you get a "proof of vote" code that you can put into your TV to block political ads? Especially in places like Texas that allow early voting, that's a huge benefit to voting, don't you think?

Now it's just a matter of how to implement it. But that's just a matter of technology.

Anybody else with me?
