Yes you read that right today is Reformation Day. This day in 1517 Luther posted his 95 Theses on the Church door in Wittenberg. Also if you have children I hope they had a good and safe Halloween, I do feel sorry for the kids in the Pittsburgh region, since it rained tonight. I also[…]

For the last few days I have been sick. I ended up having to take Thursday and Friday off. I am starting to feel a lot better, I did spend most of the day resting. And tomorrow after church I will probably will come back and just rest, and by Monday I should be 100%[…]

Last Nights South Park

Published on: October 5, 2006

I loved last nights sought park, in fact the primes of the south park is the exact reason I HATE online games and don’t play them. You know there is always that one person with no life that plays all the time, and gets some strange sadistic pleasure of killing new players. I like playing[…]

Today I was looking in the Caliban book store on Craig St. I was looking though the religion section and I find the book “Martin Luther’s Basic Theological writings” for only $12. What a sweet deal.

Organ Donation

I wish to pose a question. This question came from a response to this post titled “A simple ethics question” The person posed this statement “shouldn’t this be more strongly equated with organ donation from a dead adult without their concent (but obviously from their family) in order to save the lives of living people[…]

One of the episodes of South Park I got from the apple store is “Cartoon Wars Part 2” I can not believe that Comedy Central even blacked the image of mohammed on the for sell versions. They must really believe that the moslems are a major danger to them. I still say it is very[…]

I just got the new iTunes from the software from the software update, I think some of the new additions look nice, I like the feature where it will get the artwork for the mp3’s I have that were not purchased via the iTunes music store. I have ripped many CD’s to my iTunes collection[…]

I had to take my old iPod 2Gb Nano down to the apple store because the buttons where not working. If you tried to use the click wheel it would not respond. If I pressed any of the other buttons they would not respond. The only thing that would work is if I pressed the[…]

A while back I joined a group at work called Toastmasters. I joined because public speaking unnerves me, and the group is one that helps people develop public speaking skills. Today I gave my second speech, I gave a talk on the biking laws in PA. It was received well. I am going to start[…]

I have blogged about it before, about how I have had leg cramps. Since that time the leg cramps were getting really bad. Well I think I finally found something that helps with my leg cramps. I picked up some Protein drink mix, and it has helped. How did I come up with Protein as[…]

It seems the more I get caught up on things the farther I fall behind on staying on top of things. I keep getting things in my todo list, and it seems that the list grows faster then I can knock things off of it. One of these days, I will be able to site[…]

Camra Phones vs Digital Camras

Comments: Comments Off on Camra Phones vs Digital Camras
Published on: June 8, 2006

The BCC is running an artical about how camra phones are over taking more traditional types of camras as the camra of choice. To this I have to ask “WHY?” They have very low resolution, and lower amounts of memory so they can not store as many images, and they are very unlikely to have[…]
