While I was surfing around the Short wave radio bands, I keep finding that US based stations fall into 2 main categories. The first category is the nut job Radio evangelicalisms who think that they know when the rapture will be. And the second category nut job paranoid stuff. I am not saying all Short[…]

I find this new name for the next version of windows funny. Why would I say this. Well the last project I worked on at work was called VISTA and it was an acronym for “VISualization of Threats and Attacks” and I think that is almost correct for windows, windows is a threat to computers,[…]

Pastor Stiegemeyer, a pastor here in Pittsburgh (LCMS) found an article about Frogs exploding. Exploding frogs, I wonder if we could use that on our war on terrorism.
