I’ve been working for the last month or two on some super cool mobile templates for a client. As I’ve mentioned in other posts, we’ve pulled out all of the awesome for this. If Tridion were a person, it would be peeing its kilt with excitement every day — even though it definitely isn’t wearing a kilt. Read More →
I’m a fan of Dexter. A big fan, actually. I’ve read most of the books. I’ve watched every episode, and again on DVD and BlueRay. I’ve re-adjusted my work schedule and rearranged my entire wake sleep cycle to make sure I didn’t miss an episode. And then the finale happened, and yes, I have some comments. Let it be known that this entire post is a spoiler. Read More →
A friend of mine asked me to come over and take a look at his WiFi situation. With him being a different flavor of nerd than I, I was happy to oblige. Everything went fine right up until we were trying to get his Samsung Blu-Ray player on his WiFi. And then I discovered something so bizarre that I have to share it with the internet Read More →
On Tuesday the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) started having hearings about same-sex marriage laws. In response, the Human Rights Campaign decided to change their logo, and it’s taken Facebook by storm. They normally sport a blue and yellow logo, but for the last few days, it’s red and pink. That new logo has been spreading all over Facebook as people change their profile pictures to show that they support the right for gays to get married.
Keith Miller,our pastor at Missio Dei Fellowship, wanted to take a month off to work on his doctoral thesis and generally get a much needed break from preaching. In order to afford him that break, January became, ‘guest speaker’ month; every Sunday either someone from either the church conference or the congregation delivered a sermon. The last Sunday in January was my turn, so I chose Grace.
This is short, sweet, and to the point. I have poorly thought out, weak, and unqualified opinions on gun control. But there are views on guns which match my own, but they’ve been formulated by someone who did think them through,who presents strong arguments, and comes with excellent credentials. Larry Correia is a highly experienced CCW instructor, competitive shooter, former gun store owner, and firearms instructor. He’s also a published author. So, as of right now, basically, if you want my opinions, I’m going to say, “What Larry said”. Read More →
When the shootings in Aurora happened, I stirred up enough trouble with an angry midnight rant and the unexpected attention that I hoped not to say anything else on the subject. But..I can’t help it. We have a shooting in Connecticut and once again, between a Twitter stream and a Facebook stream, I’m really fed up. So I’ll make this short, sweet, and to the point. Read More →
You don’t have to know me very long to know that I’m a native Texan who takes great pride in seeing “Texas” as the country of origin on my birth certificate. I love my state and I find it hard to imagine living anywhere else (though Colorado has definitely grown on me). Pride in my state, though, is waning on account of a recent online petition that we secede from the union.
Apparently, when you’re a democracy, and democracy happens, but democrats win, that’s justifiable cause to secede from the union. So if we’re seceding, I’ve got some ideas on how to git ‘r done.
I’ve loved learning languages for most of my life. Because I hold degrees in two languages and demonstrate varying levels of proficiency in several others, I sometimes get asked how many languages I know, or when, or how, I started learning them. Learning languages is such a passion that I’ve been known to stop anyone with an accent and ask them what they speak and if they can teach me a phrase. I’ve traded language lessons for…well, language lessons, just so I can learn a little bit more about someone’s culture. So I figure it’s time to explain where my love for languages has come from and where it’s probably going. Read More →
Four or five years ago when I was still considering seminary, I wrote on a few topics within Christianity for the heck of it. So I think it was a Wednesday night around 10:00 pm that I wrote this. About a year later I posted it on FaceBook in the “notes” section and then promptly forgot about it (with three or four others like it). This remains unedited; I just figure I might as well put it on the blog with all my other ramblings. Read More →
