A message, direct from Gods mouth to George Bush’s ears

My New Year’s resolution: Make George Bush be more Christian, like Gerald Ford

If a born again Christain evangelical like Bush, is as close to god as he says he is then he will take the death of Gerald Ford as a sign. Evangelicals like George Bush (43) feel they have a special relationship with God and that if you haven’t gone through it yourself, there really isn’t anyway to tell you what it’s like. I have no interest in finding out myself. I’m not into that whole self-discovery, epiphany seeking kind of lifestyle. I’m pretty happy with the way things are. So that’s why I’m begging Bush (43) to read the signs God is trying to send him, and moderate. Be nice. Don’t be evil. Everyone, even the press say over and over again Gerald Ford was the nicest person they ever met. Why is Bush such a hater. Please George Bush, stop being a hater. Get out of Iraq, leave Iran and North Korea alone, and wrap up Afghanistan. Please for the sake of all that is sacred, and holy at this time of year be more moderate. Thankyou, that is all.

Word 2007 test post

I’m recommitting myself to my podcast, Carpet Bomberz Inc. I’ve been too timid in publishing regular podcasts due to worries over whether or not I had waited long enough for interesting things to happen in my life in order to report on them. I have been reading Michael Geoghagen’s book Podcast Solutions in the early chapters where Geoghagen says to follow your bliss when it comes to the topic of the podcast. While I admit to being somewhat vain, and like reporting one what’s been going on, something more topic driven might prove to be a better vehicle for me podcasting-wise. I ran through about 20 topics, some of them related to musings about how certain inventions could have been improved, some of them comedic attempts at story telling, and others just straight discoveries of some obscure techno logia (technology and nostalgia). This list will now be the driving force for this next phase of the podcast. I’m going to also follow some other pointers like registering a domain name and putting a WordPress blog into production to support the Podcast. Blogposts, podcasts, Flickr galleries, del.icio.us tags will all combine into what will be a base for some Google Adsense banner ads for the Blog. If Adam Curry, Dawn and Drew can do it so can I. All I’m looking to do is support the cost of the website, domain registration and pay for the audio equipment I’ve already amassed, and nothing more. Fame is not an option.

Test of Contribute and WordPress

I just wanted to see if this would work. It appears that Contribute 4 from Adobe has three main pre-configured blog authentications setup in in it. Blogger, Typepad, and WordPress. Since I’m testing this WordPress blog, I thought I would devote a few entries to interoperability of the new Contribute and WordPress. So far so good. It seems pretty seamless, but it duplicates a lot of the web interface within WordPress. So I don’t know if it’s easier or not. It may be the case that hardcore Contribute users would easily move between blogs and websites due to the integration. But I doubt you’re going to get one to start using a blog simply because it supposed to be easier to use Contribute. It doesn’t hide the forms heavy interface of just about every templating/blogging/content management software out on the Internets.

And to my New Media Centers compatriot on Prince Edward Island: Can’t Stop the Back Channel! Link-tribution you all!

Test no. 3

Since I first fired up this Blog to tryout WP2.0 I haven't tried very hard to put it through its paces. Some things like plug-ins are what I find most facinating about WP2.0. I know some big bloggin websites that have relied heavily on plug-ins for their functionality. What plug-ins do you think are the most valuable for folks running blogs off of WP2.0?

Shuttle PC

Every so often, Shuttle tries to compete directly with Apple. I’m sure that now when Apple has started its migration to the dual core Intel machines, they really will have to turn up the heat. If I ever buy a PC for the home, I’ll be torn between a Dell and Shuttle PC. Who knows, it may happen. But I have also just recently purchased a new Intel dual core iMac. So I’m tapped out for now when it comes to computer purchases.
