Vista

Even the Office 2007 box has a learning curve: I’ve been using Vista on my home laptop since it shipped, and can say with some conviction that nobody should be using it as their primary operating system — it simply has no redeeming merits to overcome the compatibility headaches it causes.

Opinions and Arguments

Fighting Over The New Testament: So our little slanted, incomplete, biased, and selective theologies are the best we can do. Given how our theologies are formed, it’s a constant wonder to me that people are surprised and even angered when they meet someone whose ideas about God differ from their own. I’d be more surprised […]

The Non-Maximizing Maximize Button

The Non-Maximizing Maximize Button: That’s my problem with Apple’s non-maximizing maximize button. Allowing users to maximize any window to a monitor has its problems, to be sure.

(Via rlp’s blog.) I like that a lot. Sad, but true. […]
