Just learned that I can blog from my phone. 🙂 Sweet!


Ubuntu

Well, I am trying to build a server for my church. I could not decide on what OS to use. Do i want to go easy and purchase Windows or do I want to go challenging and use Linux? And then I see Ubuntu now has a server edition! So this next saturday I am going to give it a shot. Does anyone know how easy or good Ubuntu server edition is?


Hello

I thought I would write a blog just to say I am alive and I will try to get this blog back rolling. I know its hard to believe since I have let it go so bad, but I really love to blog. Life is just more fun living then blogging. 🙂


Google this? Yahoo that? AOL everywhere? Vista only?

Now don’t get me wrong… I like Google! I just think that there is too much gadgets being shoved down our hard drives! First I can not get an ISP without downloading a bunch of junk from Yahoo or AOL or somebody else. Now I cant get an OS under 10 gigabytes! What happened to letting me decide what I want on MY PC! First there was Konfabulator which I loved. Then Mac stole it and put it in their OS NOW Microsoft has their version on Vista, which comes no where near to what I loved about Konfabulator!

Well, I just got the new Vista OS (HP gave it to me for free) for my new HP Laptop and this thing is HUGE. Loaded to the cooling fans with gadgets galore. I have already lost 30 gigs of hard drive space before I can put any of what I want on my laptop. Forget saving pictures and movies for the “media Center” because my 80 gigs isn’t going to last long before its max. Memory is already a waste because just sitting it is using over half a gig of ram! The sad part is this … I am not allowed to remove what I will never use. Do I want Windows mail? NO but you must leave it on your machine wasting space. How bout this Media Center? NO I watch TV in a box with an antenna! How bout IE? as pretty as it is I only use it to update Windows because I love FIREFOX! What about Windows Messenger? No thanks! I use Trillion because there is so many stupid messengers out there all my friends don’t know what to choose! All I want is an OS to be simple and secure! Let me decided what I want to install to decorate it! Let me decide what I want my laptop to do. I am an intelligent human that can decide what I like and what I want without a big giant corporate identity telling me different.


Our Great Savior

top notes

Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

 

Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.

 

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

 

Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.

 

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

 

Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high,
Storms about me, night overtakes me,
He, my Pilot, hears my cry.

 

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

 

Jesus! I do now receive Him,
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.

 

Hallelujah! what a Savior!
Hallelujah! what a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

There is a lot you can learn from Hymns. Especially when they are base on good sound doctrine as this one is.


A new name for a old blog

I have been thinking for about a year now on losing the name chriscrucified. Today is that day. Chris under grace is now what my blog will be known as and chriscrucified is no longer. I feel I do not need some fancy name to tell you who I am. You can learn by reading my blog. For those who have known me as chriscrucified, nothing has change cause you always just called me chris anyway. 🙂

What is in a name….. (last blog from chriscrucified)
I have called myself chriscrucified ever since I started this blogging thing. I have own a domain name called chriscrucified.com for five years. Last year I switch to just a blog on wordpress. Now I am losing the name chriscrucified. It is not that I don’t like the name but it gets confused with Christ crucified. I in no way want to put myself above what Christ has done for me and others so I am losing the name. My new blog is called chris under grace. This has the same idea behind it as chriscrucified , except more defined. It is by grace i was saved and by grace I now live in Christ. I hope you will remain an avid reader even though at times I am not an avid writer. thanks and love


Finally

Well, Laurie and I finally bought a digital camera! Only after talking about it since we broke our last camera on our honeymoon. I had a nice Olympus that I really loved. It was a great 35mm point and shoot. While we were on our honeymoon it started flaking out and then would not close. The cost to fix was outweighed by our thought of buying a digital. That was four years ago!!! LOL Well, our tax return finally got something good. We got a Nikon Coolpix S10. So I have been playing with it this week! I hope to get some cool shots up on Flickr soon.
