    Recent Effort to "Retranslate" the Bible.

    So, I was on the internets today and saw this. Here is said group's website (as badly as I do not want to link it, I will in the name of bias and balance). Is it really necessary to make the Bible read more conservatively? In some instances they are fundamentally changing the words or...

    Tablet + 3G Service Thoughts....

    My mom wants to ditch Comcast but still wants internet. All she does is browse the internet, Facebook, and email. She also likes to watch Hulu. I told her that she could get a tablet from Verizon (she loathes AT&T, her words - "I'll go without internet before I pay AT&T again") with 3G...

    Elder Scrolls Online

    Is anyone planning on playing this? I know I was interested for a while. What appear to be the pros: ESO is being led by Matt Firor (who helps DAoC). So it should have good PvP. It's an Elder Scrolls game. Other things that I have forgotten... Input! Go! :D

    [Updated]: Hulu Plus vs Netflix vs Cable; Smart TV vs Roku

    Does anyone here have any of these three items (specifically Hulu Plus or Netflix)? How would you rate the content they offer and are you satisfied with it? Personally I'm thinking of getting Hulu Plus and want to know how it fairs in comparison with the other two.

    Ok, so I'm in the process of packing and I stopped to send a professor an email about a graduate assistantship. I hear back from him and this is what he said: "We'll spend 15 minutes or so together - then I can walk you over to the dean's office to complete the paper work and such." It sounds...

    Final Fantasy VII on Steam

    ... for $12. I call myself a gamer, well... because I game. But when I tell people I've never played a single Final Fantasy game they tend to discredit my self-imposed status. I've also heard that FFVII is the best Final Fantasy game there was. Worth it? Dunno, but talk about it.
