jesuxI really wish that this was a joke, but unfortunately it’s not:

Jesux (pronounced Hay-sooks) is a new Linux distribution for Christian hackers, schools, families, and churches. There is already a core distribution being prepared, based on RedHat’s distribution.

Jesux will aim to be an environment that is pleasant for Christians to work in, with all the amenities a Christian might expect, and when possible, free from worldly influences.

That last post was my first ever post from a Mac, making this my second. This week, I became the proud owner of the older model G5 17″ iMac, thanks to the fact that Apple is clearing them out right now. I am still heavily tied to my Dell laptop, and it is my main work computer.… Read more

Finally got a chance to see Episode III: Revenge of the Sith today. It still misses some of the chemistry between the characters in the first trilogy, but overall, I give it a big thumbs up.

Mars Hill in Seattle has a podcast of their sermons. In fact there are a number of churches doing this in the ipodder podcast directory. This is such a natural marriage of ministry and technology, and it is good to see some have already taken advantage of it. Kudos to each of these churches.… Read more

I’m sitting in the Spotted Cow. Coffee, ice cream, comfy couches, a fireplace (although fake), free wifi, and less than a mile from the house we put an offer on yesterday. (The caramel macchiato is a little on the sweet side for me, but I think we can probably get that worked out.) Sounds like my new office!… Read more

I thought this paragraph from Urban Tribes was worth noting:

History had proven, apparently, that this social bond dramatically diminished when individual fighting units exceeded 150 men. The 150 figure was not an optimal size of human groups, but rather the maximum size of human groups — the point just before, as Dunbar put it, “complete social collapse.” The optimal size of a human group would some something less than 150 and would vary depending on the demands of the particular environment and needs of group members.
