May 10, 2003  

Been more-or-less consumed with the job start-up stuff, filling my head with Trends in Technology stuff... not much writing, but hopefully 'discretionary bandwidth' will emerge after another month or so...[starting to work again on the Competing Revelations series though...getting cranked back up on that one recently... several 'urgings' from the e-suggestion-box...smile]  



April 26, 2003    
Added the third installment on "How non-Jesus was Paul, really?"--dealing mostly with Paul, his opponents, his rhetoric, and the 'Jerusalem leadership" [144k]

(not much produced--the new job ramp-up, plus being away from my resources 80% of the time, has ground the output down to a trickle...hopefully I can get caught-up and off the ramp within another month or two.)


Mar 18/2003  

Added a theodicy-related question: Would the culpability of human non-intervention in violent crime imply that God's non-intervention (due to theodicy reasons) was proof that God was either malevolent or impotent?[84k]


Mar 5/2003  

Just added a next installment (Deut) to the low-brain-activity-level feature (STILL using most of the brain for the in-process interview cycle for a CTO-type job--I appreciate your continued prayers for His perfect and good-hearted will to be done.): "Notes from the Edge of my Bible"


Mar 1/2003  

 Made the (obvious) changes to the front page/entrance, in hopes of increased usability and lowered maintenance hassles. (Cleaned up a few files in the process, too)
Added some more material to "Does the NT contradict the Hebrew Bible by saying that the 'eternal law' has been annulled or changed?
(now 490K)
Updated my prayer requests.

(I intend to go through the larger files of the Tank, filled with "Save as web" bloat, and try to 're-save' using Open Office (openoffice.org). I have noticed that it reduces file sizes (for me) by at least an order of magnitude (sometimes 1.5x)…


Feb 24/2003  

Added an important piece on "Does the NT contradict the Hebrew Bible by saying that the 'eternal law' has been annulled or changed? (434K)

[I will link it into the indices later this week--I just wanted to the draft up soon--its been cooking a while]


Feb 17/03    
Just added a next installment (Leviticus) to the low-brain-activity-level feature (STILL using most of the brain for the in-process interview cycle for a CTO-type job, final interviews are this week--I think--smile--I appreciate your continued prayers for His perfect and good-hearted will to be done.): "Notes from the Edge of my Bible" in the Lessons I have Learned section (basically, tables of minor observations of mine, written in the margins of my bible--nothing heavy or surprising there, probably).

[I AM working on something heavier--and have all the research and outlining done for it, but have been working non-stop on tech-update issues. I HOPE to get to the article this next weekend/week…It’s a real exciting/important one (suspense building…smile), but I have been de-railed before on pre-announced 'products' so I will wait until its posted before I announce it…(wise chuckle).]

Bought two books since last October--great ones, actually.
Updated my prayer requests.
