A question of priorities

I cam across these two stories today

GOP moves to kill deal about the Dubai Ports World deal, and

Republicans Kill Request for Spy Program Inquiry - Los Angeles Times

Oops - I made a few typos

It figures. The day I send out an email to everyone who has used BlogWatcher in the past, asking them to come check it out, I introduce some bugs into the code. Anyone who visited BlogWatcher between about 2PM and 8PM Central time probably saw some weird stuff going on.

The good thing is that it's fixed now, and no data was actually lost. It was just "missing in action" for a while. So the only thing I lost is my reputation. :(

'Gay' penguins book frozen out in Missouri libraries

The Carpetbagger Report » Blog Archive » The radical gay penguin agenda must be stopped

OK. So, apparently, a book has been removed from the children's section of a library because it tells the story of two male penguins who adopt an abandoned egg and raise the chick. This is apparently too close to encouraging homosexual behavior!

Presbyterian Bloggers: Theological Question of the Week

Which church would Jesus go to? Presbyterian? Catholic? Non-Denominational? Mormon? Or would Jesus join a church at all? What church would Jesus never step foot in?

BlogWatcher changes again

Yet another enhancement to BlogWatcher. At least, I think it's an enhancement. ;)

In addition to the information you're used to on the view page, there's a new column running down the left hand side of the screen. Listed there will be all of your subscriptions which have any posts attached to them. The number in parenthesis shows how many posts. Clicking on one of the subscription links will filter the display, so that you'll only see the posts from that subscription.

One more BlogWatcher change

I've added one more piece of functionality to BlogWatcher. It will now automatically load new posts as they are detected. It isn't necessary (or even desirable) to refresh the list to get new posts.

I also recommend that you delete old posts that you don't care about. The fewer active posts you have, the faster your page will load.

New Blogwatcher UI

EDIT: I've realized that they way I worded this could lead to some confusion. The delete that I'm referring to isn't to delete the entire feed. You've always had that ability, from the "Manage my Subscriptions" page. This delete is for an individual post. It has no effect on the other posts from that feed. I'll be updating the layout of the page soon, to put the "Delete" link in a more logical place.

Original message: 

A good article on "objective" vs "subjective"

Alan Hartung over at A Different Perspective has written a good article on objective vs subjective. I was going to write a comment there, but it got too long, so I decided to post it here instead.

OYB Feb 17th

OYB: February 17th Readings

The one I focused on today was Mark 2:21-22, which speak of not putting new cloth onto a tear in an old garment, and not putting new wine into old wineskins. I'm familiar with these passage, of course. I've always seen it as a rejection of the "old" (the pharasees, etc) in favor of the new. Today, though, I had this gut feeling that I was missing something. These two verses seemed so out of place.

A personality test

Since I've been on something of a quest to be more "in touch" with myself, I decided to do one of these pop personality inventories. I don't know how much faith I put in it, but it might be interesting.
