Christian Youtube comments

"Scrolling through the comments and noticing one thing: Christians fighting with each other  simply because you are from different denominations. Satan doesn't even need to do anything, you people just do it yourselves."
Youtube commenter
Seriously guys - no matter how wrong someone's belief or practice is, do you really think spewing hate-filled bile over Youtube is going to achieve anything whatsoever?

We do not need to agree with someone's theology. We do not even need to accept that their version of 'Christianity' is legitimate at all.

But we do need to always behave in a Christlike manner.

Because God is Love even if your gender (or personal taste) is not attracted to pretty hearts, lace, fluffy bunnies and folk art birds with patchwork effects :-)

Seriously, though - there's a theological problem if love is always portrayed as sweet and fluffy.

And we do boys a disservice by designing so much kids' Christian stuff to look girly.

Children of different races.
Jesus loves us all.
OK - this does have hearts, but it's no toooooo girly.
1 John 4v16 - God is love.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

"Why did the chicken cross the road?
It begins over five thousand years ago with the domestication of the red junglefowl in southeast Asia and the development of paved roads in the Sumerian city of Ur."

Updated website

I've just updated my portfolio website:

It really needs a proper redesign, and I'm working on that. However, it's proving rather tricky. Being a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades makes it more complex than if I just did one thing.

So I thought it was more important to update what I had, instead of waiting until I finally got the new one figured out.

What I've done:
  • Changed the logo.
  • Done some tweaking to the design (removed shadows, added lines, etc).
  • Most importantly - made sure it actually has some of my recent work on it!

Zeta Maths

I've been having fun :-)

They are little characters for a kids' maths book.

"The characters have two main purposes, firstly to bring a bit of interest to some otherwise pretty boring books and secondly [...] a good educational opportunity to teach at least some of the Greek alphabet, which they will use later, at an early age."

All the personalities are based on some of the maths or science uses of the letters.

Alpha and Beta are twins. They like reading mystery stories, and writing secret codes to each other.

Gamma loves comics and old sci-fi movies. She got a science set for her birthday, and wants to invent a real ray gun.

Delta likes practicing conjuring tricks.  His favourite films are Shrek and Harry Potter.

Zeta’s favourite subject is maths. He likes watching videos about strange weather, especially tornadoes. And he loves sleeping. Zzzzzzz

Theta likes watching snooker with his grandad. His favourite foods are Doritos and cheese triangles.

Lambda loves swimming and surfing. Summer is her favourite time of year. Wherever she goes, she’s always listening to music.

Pi likes pies. And pizza. And cakes... When he’s not eating, he’ll usually be playing football.

Mrs Sigma is the school secretary. She adds up the number of children at school every day, and checks that the right amount of dinner money has been collected. She likes doing Sodoku.

Phi is always very elegant. She likes flowers and shells. She wants to be an artist when she grows up.

Mr Omega is the children’s teacher. He seems strict, but is nice when you get to know him. In his spare time, he likes making electronic gadgets.

Not procrastinating

"I am not procrastinating
I am simply wisely waiting
In case some magic pixies come
and do it in the night."
