I am in Shock

I had heard on the news that a vaccination had been found to prevent HPV. If you don't know HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that "can" cause cancer. Ok I understand the want to prevent cancer but this is absolutely crazy. I have a sure fire way that will prevent the spread of this type of cancer. It is call don't have sex if you aren't married and if you are going to then at the least don't have unprotected sex PERIOD. This vaccine is 99% effective, well with abstinence or not having unprotected sex is 100% effective. Now I would not be on a soap box about this except for one thing. The government "could" make this a requirement for all girls and boys who wish to be admitted in to public schools!!!! So we have gone past the diseases that kill themselves, such as polio, to required vaccinations for things that "can" turn in to a disease that kills! The government would be over stepping its bounds if it required this for kids. See this article below if you are interested in this at all.

** Addition to Original Post **
I best be stating something about this post. I am not against a vaccination that will help with the reduction in cancer but what I am against is the government telling me that my kids, when I have them some day, they have to have this vaccine because they "will" be having sex. I hope and pray that my children will adhere to the teaching of Jesus Christ and keep themselves pure and holy for the spouse that God has put on this earth for them. It is my responsibility to teach them this lesson and do all in my power to prevent harm from coming to them. What requiring this vaccination will do for parents is undermine the lessons they are trying to teach with regards to purity and holiness. Do I not have a right to not have my authority undermined by the government? Please if you read this start a little fire in your circles about this....

How Great is Our God

There are times when our days are crappy and there are days when our days are great. But I just came back from lunch and as I walked in my office this song was on the radio. Now normally this would not be a big deal but I could almost have sworn that I turned off my radio for lunch. If I didn't, which is possible cause I am not claiming a miracle or anything like that, this song playing was divine intervention. No matter how bad or how good my days are he is still the Name above all names. He is great to you, to me, and to the world. I don't care if you don't believe me because someday, all be in maybe judgment day, you will realize how Great is Our God. Thank you Jesus for loving us.

"The splendor of the King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God "

Idiot on ESPN

Ok I have been absent from the posting world for a few weeks. Mainly because I didn't have anything good to write about. Not a lot is happening in my life that is really worth talking about. The only thing in the past weeks that has happened is that Crystal and I celebrated our two year anniversary. BUt in the grand scope of things we are going to be married for 50 + years, baring good health and fortune, so 2 is not that huge of a deal. so i was sitting at my desk this afternoon catching up on the news and sport when I can across an article on ESPN that just ticked me off.

Idiot on ESPN

If you read this article you will find a guy who expects something out of the NBA that the NBA is not going to produce. Lets think about you think high school kids want to be Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Shaq or do you think they want to be Jason Terry or Tony Parker. People don't watch the NBA for team play. Lets face it, we watch the NBA for the ENTERTAINMENT. If this guy is so concerned about "team play", which i don't see how you can say no team play is on the Miami Heat because they heat the "Team" in Detriot, watch College sports. Professional sports are not about team. They are about individual and money. I don't care what anyone says. It is entertainment. So I think Wade hitting 20 ft jumpers and slashing to the basket and dishing to a big dunk for Shaq is awesome and what the NBA is about and should be about. I won't go off about Jordan era bulls but lets look at the Bird Celtic's or the showtime Lakers. They where entertaining and good basketball. But in the concept of team they lacked compared to most college basketball teams. So this Idiot wants the NBA to become college basketball and limit guys like Wade, James and Bryant. Hey jerk! we, the younger dreaming generation, love these guys and what they do.

Ok I am not a huge Linux buff or anything like that...I like what it offers but I understand and use a lot more on Microsoft than Linux. But here lately I have been testing Red Hat 9 and have grown to love it. I like the GUI for Linux and I like that I can customize it and make it what I want. One of my biggest complaints about Windows is the fact that you have to go thru a ton, or install a bunch of software to make everything do what you want it to do. With Linux out of the box you can configure the darn thing the way you like it. But a couple of things are happening or are going to happen in the near future that are going to make my use of Linux go up so I thought I would list them.

1) The Mozilla Corp. keeps on putting out a just flat out better web browser and email client than anything Microsoft offers, PERIOD! Some nut is going to say, "ooo IE 7 is so great and IE Vista is going to be even better." Well I am testing Vista and have IE Vista on it and I am not impressed...It is clunky and hard to get around to say the least in my opinion. Firefox is just flat out better. I don't use IE unless I absolutly have to and the only thing I have hit that I can't do to this post is adminstrate my companies Call Mananging system. THAT IS IT!!!

2) IBM and SUN. This partner ship means big things for Linux because both companies are rock solid and make great products. The Lotus Suite soon to be out, code named Hannover, will be running on Linux for the client and the server already runs on Linux. And now with the inclusion of an office suite built in to Lotus Notes using the open document format means a revolution is coming for Office Products. Now I will give Microsoft props here because I am testing Office 2K7 and it is really sweet. The GUI is eye candy and it is very good at what it does. But lets face v2 will do 95% of what MS Office will do and OpenOffice is FREE. Will since IBM will be including an Open Document format in Notes and OpenOffice is free I can see some companies who have been Microsoft locks on the office suite considering a move to OpenOffice which in its self is a BIG thing.

3)Finally GOOGLE! This company is the lovable company for IT people around the world in my book. They do alot of thing REALLY well and the things they don't they have bought. Let us take for the example Picasa. It was a great little photo program that google bought and Googlfied it. Now they are coming out with a Linux version of this program. I have heard, not 100% on this, but google does not use the microsoft os and that the majority of things they write and produce are going to be able to be used on LINUX because that are pushing for completly web based services. This will push the envolop for Microsoft.

Don't get me wrong Microsoft does some good things and they do some not so good things. On a whole MS is the best product for basic ad beginner computer users but as more people enter in to the life of computers they are going to want more flexiblity in what they do thus MS will not prosper in this type of world because they are very closed off. They want you to do it their way or no way. GO LINUX!!!!!!!
