Only one God?

It's very irritating, when you're reading historical stuff, and they 'reveal' that early Israelite religion was polytheistic, or that they worshipped a goddess. The implication is that the Bible gives an innaccurate view.

But the fact that the Israelites worshipped many gods is not news. The Bible makes this very very clear.

What the Bible says is that they should only worship one God. Not that they did. God didn't make laws to ban people from doing things they wouldn't have thought of doing anyway.

That says '1 GOD', not 'I GOD', as several confused people read it :-)

Sort algorithms

Computers need new sort algorithms.
Specifically:
  • Dates as normal humans write them (year at end) - preferably with months written in words.
  • Seasons - spring, summer, autumn, winter would sort in that order.
  • Books of the Bible. Acts should not come before Genesis.
Any other ideas?

Double vision

I had a dream in which there were people whose eyes looked a bit like this.

That jewellery was fun to do!

Procrastination

"No one “builds a house.” They lay one brick again and again and again and the end result is a house. Procrastinators are great visionaries—they love to fantasize about the beautiful mansion they will one day have built—but what they need to be are gritty construction workers, who methodically lay one brick after the other, day after day, without giving up, until a house is built."
Of course, the ironic reason I was reading this random page on the internet... ahem!
