” I will weep for thee;
For this revolt of thine, methinks, is like
Another fall of man.”
– Henry V, Act II, Scene II.
Actually, I weep for my MacBook. It won’t power on. I suspect that it has a bad battery. I’ll have to try to have it fixed as soon as I can afford to.
For now, my iPad will suffice. Then there is always my (gasp!) Windows laptop, which I normally only use for work.
Why did I quote Shakespeare? One, I am sad that my trusty MacBook is possibly dead, and it is revolting against me by refusing to power on when I push the power button. Two, it is one of my favorite quotes from my favorite scene from Henry V. Finally, it’s William Fucking Shakespeare! Do I really need another reason?
I tried posting a link to this on Facebook, but they pulled it because they don’t appreciate anything with nipples, no matter how artistic. So, here is the link. It’s really pretty, go have a look!
I’m trying out MacJournal for the iPad for my blogging. I have MacJournal on my MacBook, but haven’t used it for blogging for a while since I’ve found that I like Mars Edit better. Unfortunately, they don’t make Mars Edit for iPad, so I’m trying out MacJournal.
Does anyone out there know of any good blogging software for the iPad?
Unfortunately, for this Mac guy, I am sometimes forced to use Windoze. Windows Live Writer comes bundled with Windows 7, so I’m trying it out.

This is italic.
This is underline.
This is strike through.
This is block quotes.
Yea! It works decently enough. Hopefully I won’t have to use it much. I still love my Mac for most anything.
I recently discover a very nice site, Jesus Never Existed, that provides a plethora of information showing that Christianity is a manufactured religion (but aren’t they all?). They provide sources for much of their material, which is a good thing. Some of what I’ve read I’m familiar with, but a lot of it I haven’t encountered before.
If you are interested in the history of Christianity, check them out.
The organization Recovering From Religion has started a hotline for those who are recovering from religion. This is in response to all of the “…countless emails and phone calls from people seeking help on their journey away from faith, at all hours of the day and night”.
If you are recovering or have recovered from religion, you know how terribly painful a process this can be. Not only are you abandoning a life-long set of beliefs, but you face ostracization from friend, family, and co-workers. You also live with the fear of the negative reactions you may receive when people find out you are an atheist.
I have applied to answer the Hotline and to help out with their Facebook page. If you are recovering from religion, or are an life-long atheists, and want to help, go and apply. It is a great cause that will help the millions who are struggling with losing their religion.
I read a lovely blog post. It is about people with disabilities. Please read it.
My comment on this:
I grew up with a learning disability. I was teased, bullied. But I’ve succeeded beyond what any of those people who made fun of me, or even most of the teachers and guidance counselors could. My son has autism spectrum disorder. Family, friends, strangers in the supermarket, all would try to tell me how to handle him, how to raise him, how to “fix” him. He is not “broken”. He never was. He is his own person. He is my son.
