Children Of God

Once, after inquiring the reasons why he believed Mormonism was wrong, a good Baptist friend of mine began telling me about Satan and his desire to take the throne of God before the world was. Everything he told me was true and accurate, as far as my knowledge goes.  Satan did try to take the throne of God and was thusly cast out of heaven ...

I'm referring to this "new and improved" piece of software they've recently released called Vista.  In all honesty, I hoped it would fai...

Ugliest Animal Ever

Okay...  This is an unusual post for me, but I can't believe what I just saw. For years I thought the hairless cat was the ugliest animal alive, but no - not even close to tell you the truth. Goes to show that mother nature really isn't discriminatory at all.  "Sickeningly ugly or average or whatever, come one come all", s...

My wife and I got a dutch oven set about a month ago. We finally decided to try it out.

Problem #1 You need to get the coals lit before you can cook anything. I tried a couple methods to get them started. Pile o...

To begin, quite honestly, let me say this: Without OpenOffice.org, using Linux in a professional environment (which I have been doing now for 4 straight years across 4 different companies) would have been, and would currently be, much more difficult at the very least. Those who have desk jobs, and more specifically programming jobs, know how...

Texture Extraction

Using The Gimp to remove low frequency data from an image. When I take a picture of something I would like to use for texture, there is often a slight change in the color across the entire image. I want to keep the detail, but make the overall color even across the image. This is a picture of dusty rain marks on the hood of my car: It is l...

Well.... Not much to write, other than this week's goal wasn't forgotten. :) I'd say that 5 out of the 7 days I had were a success of making at least 90% of the decisions during the day based on strengthening the family. My job is going well, although it's kind of scary because I'm the sole Linux guru of the company. They're putting a lot of fa...

Well...  I haven't written in awhile, and quite a bit is coming to a head soon, so I thought I'd just site down and write whatever comes out.  It may be a novel, it may end right now. Lately I've been focusing a lot of my time on music.  Our band Mimic, is in the process of getting gigs around Utah, so I've built a website for us,...

I enjoyed this talk, but to tell you the truth, I have no idea what to write about it.  I think it has to do more with my current mood than anything else. The talk made a great point that we need to live in the now.  We need to utilize the atonement of Christ in order to secure a great tomorrow. And as far as yesterday goes, I believe...

I've been using Linux now for long enough to have heard just about all the facts, opinions, babblings, and flame-wars about Linux security vs. Microsoft security. *sigh* It seems that every time I try to explain to people the added security inherent to Linux, they have all sorts of explanations why my explanations are bogus.  Some of my ...

 So, I was listening to, and reading, 1st Nephi chapter 4 in the Book of Mormon this morning, when a verse caught my eye, and my mind dwelt on it for a bit.  It was verse 6.  Verse 6 reads as follows: "And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do." Seems pretty ino...
