  Stubborn & faithless people
In the ongoing parallel gospel study - I hit this these passages about a demon possessed boy. the thing that really hit me this time was about us being stubborn & faithless people it just stuck out to me because it shows how just like a real Dad gets irritated by his kids doing stupid things so does God with us. The thing is sometimes we need to be shouted at to realise we are doing something wrong rather than just being molly-coddled all the time. If you read the verse out of context - it would look like Jesus was really looking forward to leaving us!!
I really like verses like this because it shows how real Jesus is, as a person - not the namby-pamby wimp that he was often portrayed as, to me as a child. Another one that I like is when he throws the money lenders out of the temple - but you will have to find that one for yourselves!! As usual these are my opinions - and I by no means claim to have inside knowledge on God and what his views are beyond what I read for myself in His word. I would however love to hear your opinions on the matter. especially if you think I am missing something obvious or I am totally barking up the wrong tree!!

  CEIVA Sender Upload Tool
okay all you people with digital camera who haven't been keeping G up to date - you no longer have an excuse download the CEIVA Sender Upload Tool and use it to edit (including cropping, red-eye, and text anywhere in any font you have) and send pictures to GG's frame - it's dead easy to use and way faster than online. So get ready to impress her with all your pictures. By the way this is a windows only tool.

  Text anyone
do you want to text someone in the states - have their cell number - but have no idea who their provider is? then you need to use
Teleflip this service forwards any email to the numbers respective service - ie put in the 10 digit and it will go to their cell - just remember texting is limited to 160 characters - so don't get carried away!

  Glimpse inside the virtual church
the BBC has an article about a new virtual church being run by the Ship of fools website you can read about it but you will have to wait till May before you can attend. What do you think of this? I know that GG (Rachelle's grandma) would love it from the point of view that actually going to church takes way too much out of her - but to be Honest I don't see her using it as it would be way to technical for her. Keeping her ceiva running is complicated enough. However I do see its potential for other people who can't or won't go to church. What do you think?

  $14 Steadycam
feed up with those shaky movies, bugged that shooting from a kids point of view isn't exactly painless - then maybe you should consider a $14 Steadycam. This guy designed & built this and judging by his examples it can work pretty well - the other advantage of this is that it will keep your finger off the zoom button - another big contributor to sea sickness when watching home movies!!

  Shootout at Blackwater
This is cool - in a teenage high powered weapon kinda way - reminds me of how I was when I was in high school. In reality it's sad how much time effort and money we put into being able to kill each other

the HIWS video is pretty funny
