From Gnome to XFCE
PoeticIntensity

Okay...  As most of you know, I use Linux for pretty much everything I do which requires a computer.  When I started using Linux, I waffled between KDE and Gnome for probably 6-10 months when I finally settled on Gnome.  I haven't looked back since.... almost. About 6 months ago, Gnome came out with a release which implemented the...

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 ...

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. We have both seen and helped with dutch oven cooking before, but have never done it without the help of someone more experienced. 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...

Hail OpenOffice.org!

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...

Last week, PoeticIntensity decided to join us again, with an interesting concept.  He had spent the previous evening playing some chords, and decided to make a song out of it that evening.  So we spent an hour coming up with the concept, and another 2 hours tracking it.  We then spent a few more minutes mixing it down until it sounde...

I've been working on getting my inactive Laurels, trying to get them to come back to church.  Well I set up a class in my last BYC that I'd teach them all the Cha Cha on the 3 so I spent a lot of time getting ready, then once I had everything prepared I went to go have a tooth pulled and they used Latex! I don't do well at all with latex. So I...

2nd Nephi : 2 - Part 2

Something in verse 13 struck me as interesting, even though it probably could be considered common knowledge among the LDS population. I never remember seeing anything quite as obvious relating to happiness as Alma 41:10, which states "Wickedness never was happiness".  Well...  It's easy to inverse-ify it and say "If wic...

Let Isaiah begin! This chapter is a great pre-cursor to the chapters to follow.  Nephi explains why he like the words of Isaiah, as well as the fact that he likes to bring people to Christ. Interesting in verse 3, Nephi says he'll send the words of Jacob to his children for the purpose of reinforcing his own words.  The reason being b...

Things that impressed me for this chapter were different than any time I've read it before (that I can remember), and that, being as simple as it is, is a testament to me as to why we should continue reading the Book of Mormon throughout our entire lives. Interesting how Laman and Lemuel consider the spiritual visions of Lehi to be "foolishn...

I decided to get back into reading the scriptures now that I've finished the last conference talks.
