Well, I'm back from staffing another Cursillo weekend. As usual, I'm completely exhausted, but it was a wonderful time. You can get some sense of that from the picture at the link on the right. I leave it to you to figure out which one is me. ;)

Star Trek and Monty Python - what could be better?

I found this to be wonderfully funny. Of course, I was always a fan of Star Trek and Monty Python.

Now for the real question: how many of the episodes can you identify from the clip? ;)

Another BlogWatcher?

Well, this is sort of cool. I've been lead to an article about writing an RSS reading using Ajax and PHP, which is exactly what BlogWatcher is. I've only skimmed it so far, but it looks similar to what I've done, at least on a basic level. Maybe I'll be able to get some pointers to improve my code.

Respecting others

Anyone who reads both my blog and Aaron at two or three . net will know that we're pretty much at opposite ends of the political spectrum. I'm very much a liberal, and he's a self-described conservative. But his post today entitled "What is compassion?" echos a lot of what I've been saying and thinking. Now, I'm not calling Aaron a liberal.

More BlogWatcher name ideas

I've come up with some more possible domain names for BlogWatcher. Your comments are welcome:

Self-imposed pigeonholes

Brandon at a badchristian blog has written an interesting post on identities. He writes about boxes and labels being used as a shortcut for thinking. It's a common enough thought, but he has what I found to be an intersesting twist on it. It's not so much the boxes and labels we put on others that concerns him, but the boxes and labels we put on ourselves.

Jesus in support of gay marriage?

Zeus has wriiten an excellent, well thought out post on homosexuality, Christianity, and the Bible. It's not anything in particular that I haven't seen before, but it's so well written that I had to give it a bump.

I especially liked the comment:

BlogWatcher bugs fixed, plus a question

OK. I think I've gotten the last of the Internet Explorer related bugs taken care of in BlogWatcher, my Ajax-based rss/news reader. I've got a lot of work to do to optimize it so that it runs faster, but I'm not planning on more features at this point, and I don't know of any pending bugs. Please let me know if you encounter any.

Around the Dinner Table | CrossLeft

Kety at has written about a dinner recently between a group of people which was, apparently, specifically set up to encourage a dialog between people of faith and those with a secular point of view.
