This day in history from:


Finally had that date in Gateway a little while ago.

Only this time, I took my kids with me and bought a gift for their grandmother's 67th birthday tomorrow.

Again, I fought the urge to purchase an LCD TV... but at the store, I got the chance to take a machine running Vista Basic for a spin (think it was one from HP).

All I can say is it has the same "feel" as Mac OS X but of course, they cannot copy the "looks" as they may run into intellectual properties issues with Apple. Also, a machine with that caliber should already have Aero simply because a Mac with comparable specs (or even lower specs) runs the same "glassy" OS X already.

But in fairness, it really looks and feels like a better OS than XP. But of course, I just handled the thing for a few minutes...

But with the need to purchase a brand new machine, not to mention the prohibitive price of the software itself (and the lack of resale value thereof), I think I'm better off getting Lindsay 2.0 first before I go on board with Vista.

Of course, if someone gives me a Vista machine, I wouldn't refuse it (because Office 2007 looks impressive, albeit totally redesigned). But if I had to spend with my own money, I'd still put it in a Mac.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
