Atlantis ‹the domain of the Stingray›
Our kids are learning Algebra and Calculus, are expected to memorize the periodic table and to read Shakespeare. Their marching-band routines are ever more complicated, and they are supposed to know all the plays in the playbook. But when it comes to church, we say, "Don't bother me with the details."

My Own Linux Box

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

For a while, now, I've been "around" linux users. They talk up the OS like its the best things since the invention of the personal computer.

While I was at the University of Florida, I got my first taste of using *nix, as my internet account was on a unix machine. So, I was able to learn some basic *nix commands. Ever since then, I made it a point to keep a unix shell account somewhere (something I still have with Freeshell).

Now, I actually have a linux box to call my own. I ordered a nice little laptop off of eBay and loaded a Ubuntu linux on it. I've kinda always played around with the idea of having my own linux machine, but couldn't pull myself away from Windows (and, for some things, I still feel more comfortable using Windows). That's why I got this computer.

For the Ornithologist in All of Us

Hungry Little Birdies

A little over a month ago, Genevieve noticed that some birds were building a nest right under the eaves of our house, atop the house number. It was a muddy contraption suitable only for small birds, especially since there was little room upon the house number for anything larger than a canary or parakeet.

For a while it seemed as if the nest was abandoned, so I decided to take a look. I grabbed a mirror, stood on a chair, and peeked in. I saw four little, blue eggs.
