Re: Should Faith Play a Role?

An emphatic NO!.

With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden,
the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably. (JLP SD 2423.3)

If America is guided by religious dogma and doctrine,,,,,,,
we are doomed.

We stand upon the shoulders of giants. Those giants created a constitution that called
for a separation of church and state.

Re: Konquerer Improved Because of Apple

Allow me to rewrite your article:

Apple has saved itself millions of dollars in development by building on the
khtml engine. In return Apple has complied with the terms of the GPL by sharing
it’s changes to the code.

Despite all the benefits Apple has reaped from open source, it has failed to release
Quicktime, or Itunes, or anything for open source OS’s.

I’ll take Apple over M$ any day of the week – but I’m still waiting for them

Re: The Oscars

You pegged this years ago. FOTR and TTT had respectable oscar showings, but
ROTK cleaned up – a well deserved reward for the series as a whole.

It was good that ROTK was such a strong movie – arguably the best of the three.

For me, it is tough to beat the feeling of seeing Gandalf ride up to Bag End. I don’t it really
was really surpassed until the charge of the Rohirrm(sp?) on the Pellenor fields. Or Gandalf
riding into Minas Tirith, or the Witch King watching his hosts issue forth from Minas Morgul,
or the showdown between Eowyn and uKnowHoo, or the absolutely stunning scene at
the Grey Havens, or … and then there was …. – you get the idea.

Mike – will you reset the them of my account to the site default – my current aqua view
is dorked – doesn’t really work right.
