Web Editors in Linux

I just got done lightly scanning over this article before I shook my head in disgust and decided to write this entry. Let me say this first.  I've been professionally employed in web development now for 6 years, and am by no means a genius on the subject, but I think I may have a clue or two. I have absolutely no idea why Bluefish seems to...

I'm gonna step out on this one because this topic has been a hot one in my head for quite some time now.  Not only with AJAX, but frameworks in general. To Framework, or Not To Framework...  That is the question... When I began programming, there were no frameworks for PHP, JavaScript, or AJAX (not sure if AJAX even existed back then...

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,...

DSpam and Postfix

For the last few days, I've been fiddling with my new postfix installation (which has been working quite well), trying to figure out how to even out my current 200 to 1 spam ratio. I'm now trying out dspam, and I have all the routing working, and the web interface is working (finally), but the only problem I'm having is, well...  All the tr...

Collin's Testimony
PoeticIntensity
5 comments
During last month's testimony meeting, our wonderful Luci whispered into Sarah's ear, as the church members were expressing their feelings about Christ, that she really didn't want to go up there.  It was totally unprovoked, but as she is somewhat frightened of unfamiliar situations, was totally understandable. We told her that it was okay ...

I've just got to put this somewhere so I don't forget it.  I just finished installing postfix / dovecot using postgres on my home server by following this wonderful tutorial.

Ya know...  I really wasn't planning on writing anything today, but ah, what the hey.  It's 5:30 and I'm not going to be doing anything else within the next 20 minutes. So, lately I've been pondering this whole "ILoveMyJournal.com" thing I've created, and where I should take it.  So far, there aren't that many users, but ...

I really don't know how to begin this entry - at all.  I'm still sort of in shock, to be honest. I came to work today with no anticipation other than finishing a project I began two days ago.  Seemed like it would be a normal day.  That is, until a co-worker of mine came in and showed me some keys which had a BMW logo on them. ...

Who Uses Linux?
PoeticIntensity

I was reading this article a few minutes ago, and a conversation I had with a potential employer popped into my head. It was an interview for a Microsoft ASP programmer I responded to about 3 years ago.  They wanted a senior web engineer, and I responded with my PHP credentials, and for some reason, that led to an interview. The intervie...

Yup.. the Jones' family is now over its span of multiple-month's good health and have plunged into the wonderful month of January's sickness.

When will I ever learn to trust my wife, my brother, and my instinct?  Probably never.

Okay...  Since I had recently returned from my mission in 1996, I knew I wanted to learn how to record music.  Recording music swiftly turned into wanting to be able to record my drums.  A couple of years ago, I was able to put enough money away to buy a load of recording equipment for my drums. I've recorded quite a few diddies in...

Alma : 46 - Amalickiah
PoeticIntensity
0 comments
Haven't even started reading this yet, and I know I'm in for a doozie.  Amalickiah, in my estimation, is one of the truest Nehor-ites in existence.  Absolutely no morals, no regard for anyone but himself - even if it means killing many people who he claims to love.  One of the most dispicable humans ever to live on earth.  Now, ...

This entry begins the documenting of my studies of the Book of Mormon in my "journal".  One of my new year's resolutions for 2008 is to read, study, and write about every chapter in the Book of Mormon.  I figured today was as good a time as any to begin. And so I begin with the Introduction of the Book of Mormon. --- I nev...

Verses 5 and 6 are cause for simple reinforcement that external events do not necessarily cause internal changes.  Yes, they had a horrific war which caused the death of so many husbands, fathers, sons, etc...  And yes, that caused a lot of people to become baptized.... but, that didn't seem to matter much.  The very next year, it se...

I cannot remember the last time it actually full-on snowed on Christmas day.  For the past 5 years or so, there have been seasons where it almost snowed and threatened to snow, but it's always been a disappointment. This year, however, I believe there's hope.  At least that's what the weather people are saying.  Let's cross our fi...

Anyway, I woke up at 6,...

2nd Nephi : 5

First thing which caught my attention this time around is verse 6. I relate that verse to the way the Lord works.  Basically, God lets everyone know about his plan, and those who believe Him will follow him. This makes me wonder if Nephi, through some sort of parable, told Laman and Lemuel what he was planning to do as well, but they didn'...

 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."

Since I purchased my 2007 Mustang GT in January of 2007, I've been putting 85 Octane gas in it. I didn't notice any pings, nor anything else to make me think I was putting the wrong gas in it.
