New Chapter

Well, I just wanted to give you a quick update. On Saturday December 29th, 2007, Jamey and I got engaged! We're both extremely happy and excited about starting this new chapter in our lives. I love her with all of my heart and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with her. :) As of right now, we haven't set a date, but we'll figure that out fairly soon, I'm sure. Anyway, more details to come!

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Good morning, and merry Christmas! I hope you are able to spend some quality time with friends and family, exchanging gifts with each other. In the midst of the excitement that this day brings for so many of us, remember why we celebrate it in the first place. 2000 years ago God gave us the ultimate gift, Jesus. (Take about 5-10 minutes to read the first few chapters of Luke.) For those of you who don't believe, consider this. The Bible says that God has set eternity into the heart of every man and woman (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Whether we're believers, agnostics, atheists, or something else, we've all asked (or will someday) ourselves about the possibility of some sort of life after death. Jesus is the answer to those questions. We've all sinned and fallen short in God's eyes, but He sent His only Son, as a free gift, to redeem us (John 3:16) keep us from being separated from Him in eternity. But just like any other gift, it's really of no use to us until we accept it. All you have to do is call on Him. Romans 10:15 says: "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." It's as simple as that. Merry Christmas!

Making Firefox Faster

Sorry if this is old news, but if you use Firefox and you're surfing via broadband, then you're in luck! (I must disclose that I still haven't made the jump to Firefox. Yeah, yeah...spare me. I'm just being lazy) There's a nice trick to make your browser faster by changing the way it works. Firefox, by defualt, is optimized for dial-up connections (56k modems). It loads one thing at a time. However, this tweak will force it to load multiple things at the same time. Repeat after me: pipelining! Click here to check it out, and be sure to let me know what you think! (Oh, I'm sure I'll switch to Firefox soon) :)
