A discussion of Christianity from a confessional Lutheran and humanitarian activist perspective, peppered with updates from my ray tracing computer graphics, usually using POV-Ray (povray) 3.5 or blender. Lately however I've been blogging about my frustrations and triumphs in setting up linux on my hobby PC's.
"This release, in my opinion, was the most over-hyped and bug-filled to date. You will have to really hit Technorati to see more of what I’m talking about, but Feisty is as buggy as the beta I tested a short time ago. After completely tossing into the wilds of the ubber-buggy "network-manager," anything running with Edgy supported RT2500 driver shows up, but it will not connect without a special script. Those of you who are on Feisty and need help with your RT2500 cards are welcome to e-mail me for the bash script."I do not suffer alone. Last month I was discussing the bugginess of Feisty (7.04) ubuntu linux with some geeks. I don't think they entirely appreciated that I could be making rational assessments of the OS release.
"Quest. IX. May we not hate the enemies of God? How then must we love them as ourselves?Wait a minute! Here we have an actual, literally Puritanical Sermon, "Cases and Directions for Loving Our Neighbour as Ourselves", by Richard Baxter, a man born in 1618, taken from the site, Fire and Ice: Puritan and Reformed Writings. Where are the mentions of racks and ethnic cleansing-- you know all those things that have led to the association of biblical literalism with sheer brutality?
Answer. We may and must hate sin in every one; and where it is predominant, as God is said to hate the sinner for his sin, so must we; and yet still love him as ourselves: for you must hate sin in yourselves as much or more than in any other; and if you are wicked you must hate yourselves as such; yea, if you are godly, you must secundum quid, or in that measure as you are sinful, abhor, and loathe, and hate yourselves as such. And yet you must love yourselves according to the in measure of all that natural and moral goodness which is in you; and you must desire and endeavour all the good to yourselves that you can. Just so must you hate and love another; love them and hate them impartially as you must do yourselves."

Aren't they cute?
“All of us standing here right now — anybody who exhales is polluting like mad,” Mr… Lutz said. “If we have CO2 limits, I think we should all contribute, and we’re all going to have to train ourselves to breathe fewer times per minute.”Yikes. Okay, let's have fun with the sarcasm in the other direction.
A person engaged in prohibited uses, continuously for one hour, could typically use 100 to 200 MBs, or, if engaged in prohibited uses for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, could use more than 5 GBs in a month.See further discussion at slashdot.

So who exactly is on EMI? That's the point of this blog entry!
Please see here for a list of artists in the EMI catalog. Favorites of mine found in the catalog include The B-52's and the The Psychedelic Furs. But wait until May when the new terms are announced!
