Posting from St. Louis

It's 10:38 pm on Thursday and I just left the late-night concert (KJ-52 and 7th Day Slumber) and I'm writing this from an internet kiosk here in the convention center. We had a great train ride in and I got registered here and then we went out to dinner with some friends here in town. The Adam's Mark is very nice, but I was a little disappointed that they don't have high-speed internet in the rooms. Sara needed it to get some work done. I just printed directions to a Panera that offers free wi-fi. Nice.To all a good night.

latest news

We've passed a little cold around our family for the last week.I had a fish die yesterday.I'm still waiting for my PDA.On Thursday morning we're leaving for the National Youth Workers' Convention in St. Louis. We're taking the train again, Emma's preferred method of travel.

why ebay is cool

I picked up a few books at a library book sale last week. They were fifty cents per hardcover and a quarter for each paperback. I listed a couple on Ebay, just to help defer the cost of my pda. I listed this hardcover book by Robert Heilein for $0.99, thinking that after paying the listing fee I'd make a cool 15 cents. Yesterday the auction closed and the book sold for $26!! Apparently it was a first edition and several collectors wanted it. I have the case and the 256MB Secure Digital card I ordered, but I'm still waiting on my pda.

Geeks of the world, unite!

After a week of practice, I'm finally ready to post some audio files of me playing my new accordion. The question is, are you ready to hear them? The answer to that question is "probably not." At any rate, here are two sound clips in mp3 format:Come, Thou FountSome song from a book (ok, it's called "Smoky, the Mouse Colored Pony," whatever that meansEnjoy!

new pda

I settled on the pda I want and I've ordered it. It's a Toshiba e355. It doesn't have wi-fi, but it does have mp3 player, voice recorder and a handsome, bright color screen. More when it arrives.

a good day

Yesterday was a fun day. My accodion finally arrived in the mail. I've been playing it some; it's certainly not perfect, but it works well enough for the price I paid (actually I didn't pay for it, it's a Christmas present- thanks Mom!). Maybe I'll post a sound file sometime soon.I picked up two new fish for our aquarium. The water conditions are finally starting get stabilized, so hopefully I won't have more floaters anytime soon.I've been doing some shopping for a PDA to replace the one that met an untimely end. I've got my eye on the Toshiba e755. It has a color screen, mp3 player, voice recorder, integrated wifi and bluetooth and two expansion slots. Its retail price is $499, but I'm watching eBay to see if I can get it for under $200. If you'd like to make a donation to the Rad PDA for Danny Foundation, then click here:

Halloween

Emma's Halloween

This Halloween Emma dressed up as Mothra, the giant evil moth who battles Godzilla in Godzilla vs. Mothra (released in Japan as Mosura tai Gojira). In the picture Emma is acting out a scene where Mothra takes a tiger from a cage at the zoo and bites its head off. Ok, actually Emma was a butterfly, but she really did bite the head off of a chocolate bat. Well, no, not really, but she did bite a Tootsie Roll in half. No, wait. Sara and I ate all of her candy. Happy Halloween!

R.I.P.

Sony Clie S320

Sony Clie S320 was born in the spring of 2002 in a factory outside of Tokyo, Japan. It was united with Danny Ferguson through www.pricewatch.com as a graduation present and it served him faithfully for almost two years. Its interests included keeping dates and addresses, reading e-books, and playing lo-res remakes of old arcade games. It passed away on October 31, 2003, in a freak accident that is still under investigation.

Clie is survived by its leather case, hotsync cable, A/C adapter and extra syli. It will always be remembered for the way it kept its owner from missing important meetings and helped pass the time if those meeting were boring.

Worldviews: Recomendations for further study, part 2

I wanted to include this in my post about worldview resources, but I wasn't able to access the website for a couple of weeks and I didn't want to recommend something that might not work for you. Here it isRavi Zacharias International MinistriesZacharias is a world renowned apologist and evangelist. The site has articles, bibliographies and, best of all, loads of mp3s from lectures he's given. These are free and legal, so you can download them, listen to them on your computer, burn them to cds, or put them on a portable audio device. I've learned a lot from those mp3s. If you have problems downloading them, I can always put some on a cd for you, just let me know.
