  1. How to pronounce Amon

    That has to be the LONGEST pronunciation for such a small word that I've ever heard...and it doesn't sound a lick like it's spelled!
  2. Instruction Contrary to Knowledge

    This is one of the areas that resounds with me...teaching our children rather than just telling them...or as the article implies, just giving them a bunch of rules to adhere to without explaining why something is right or wrong. Granted, there are times when just telling them is enough; however, if all they know are rules of "do this" and "don't do that" without explaining the biblical reasoning behind it, they are left with a certain perception of Christianity and God. I failed in doing this too often with our daughter, but I'm trying to do better by our son.

    Just consider it as part of the game!
  4. Whats for Supper...

    Eating like a bachelor tonight at work... Spaghetti, Pringles (Ranch flavor), and a Nutty Bar. Yuck...reading that makes me feel sick.
  5. By the way, that was back in the late 1980s or early 1990s.
  6. Is that the church where Doug Fisher is the pastor? Nevermind...I looked it up online. It is the same church. I wasn't asking for the sake of gossip. I was just wondering if it was the same church/pastor that had an influence on me in the past. Many years ago when I was receiving the Sword of the Lord, that church's ad always stuck out with me. It included the catch-phrase "Where the shout has not died out!" Back then, I listened to many of Doug Fisher's sermons simply because that ad stirred my interest. After looking at their website, I see they still use that phrase too.

    I've noticed a delay like that lately, but it's been while using my phone. A couple of days ago, I made a LONG post in response to someone in the Computer least it was long for pecking it all out on a phone. Anyway, I hit the submit button...and waited...and waited...and waited. It finally finished post was gone. I'm typing this on my phone too. After that happened, I cleared the history, cookies, and cache from the browser. This is the first post I've made since then (on the phone) we'll see what happens. Edit... Still took a moment, but it seemed a little quicker...and the post didn't disappear!
  8. NOW what do I do...

    You might lose some of the money on the exchange, but there are "gift card exchangers" that give you money for the card. Here's one for an example...I don't know anything about it or any others. I'd just heard about gift card exchangers and thought it MIGHT be something for you to check into.
  9. windows 10

    Alan, You installed Wine...did you also install PlayOnLinux? That MAY allow you to use the other game CDs. As for the languages, I assume you installed the Chinese language with whatever language software app came with Mint? I can't help with that...sorry. I do know that there are some Chinese specific Linux OSs. If you go to Distrowatch on the internet and search for distros from China, you might be able to view their software, or visit their website to get information. Also, there is a free office suite for Linux called WPS Office. It's almost exactly like Microsoft Office in's from China. If you install that, it might help with the fonts. Not sure, but it might. I'm unable to offer any help with your website. I'll be glad to help with terminal commands if possible. If you have any questions, send me a message, and I'll be glad to help in any way I can. I'm not an expert, but I have a little knowledge and experience with Linux...been using it now for a few years.
  10. Arch Linux - Easy Installer

    Well, my preferred OS is Debian. I use both Debian Stable and Testing. Arch was more something for me to try, to play around with, and learn more. I've only been using it for a few months, so I can only give you my personal opinion based on my experience. From what I've seen, Arch uses a lot less disk space than your normal Linux OS. It also uses less resources than a normal Linux OS. That's because with Arch, it only gives you what you need to make the system and software you don't have a bloated system with Arch. Also, Arch always has the newest software...some refer to it as "bleeding edge" software. So, you have a system that's not bloated, uses less resources, and has the most current software available. People claim also that because of that, Arch is blazingly fast when using it. I personally haven't noticed much of a difference in speed. Maybe it's a little faster, but not enough to make me go, "WOW!" However, since it always delivers the newest software, you run the risk of breaking a piece of software or even breaking your whole OS when you do updates. You have to really know your system AND how to fix it if something goes wrong... I've used it almost daily for about 3 months, and it has run flawlessly. But then again, I don't have a lot of software that I there's less to break. Now, with that said, the novelty of using Arch has worn off for me. Don't get me wrong...I still like it and think it's a great OS, but I still prefer Debian. I'll keep Arch on my computer (I dual boot it and Debian on one of my computers), but after years of using Linux and trying different OS's...Ubuntu and several of its derivatives (including Mint), Debian and several of its derivatives, Arch and a few of its derivatives, and many others including some little known ones, straight Debian is what I personally prefer. It's all I have on 3 computers (except the laptop that I dual boot Debian and Arch on). Arch gives you a light system that's light on resources, but I can get basically the same thing with Debian by doing a net install, only installing the base system, and then adding only the software that I want to use. The software on Debian Stable is older, but everything works and you don't have to worry about your system or software getting broken. Debian Testing gives you newer software than Stable, but you run the risk of something possibly breaking. However, in the years that I've used Debian Testing, I've never had anything break so that it wouldn't's plenty stable for me. The only problem that I can remember having with Testing is they replaced the regular volume controller with one from PulseAudio, and its icon's background wouldn't adapt to certain theme colors on the after messing around with it for a couple of days, I just installed a different volume controller.
  11. Put Your Bad Jokes Here...

    A photon checks into a hotel... Bellhop: Could I help you with your luggage sir? Photon: No thanks; I'm traveling light!
  12. Define for me "Winked At".

    Well, the way I see it is relation to the verse before and after, it's referring to people worshiping false gods/man-made idols; especially, in likening the Godhead unto a man-made idol. In the past, God winked at the ignorance of man in doing such. In other words, though it was wrong and sinful, God didn't hold them accountable right then and there for doing that. Kind of like if I came salmon fishing where you live. After a long day, even though they were spawning...I didn't catch a thing. As I made my way back to the car...lo and behold...I run into you and a friend that you were with. You asked me how I did fishing. Well, I decided to lie and tell you that even though you won't believe it, I caught a 200 lb. salmon that was 10 feet long! Rather than call me on it, you look at your friend and give him a show that it's understood between the two of you that you know I'm lying, but you don't call me on it. You just acknowledge to your friend (the wink), that you know I'm lying. God winked at it in the past, he didn't hold man accountable then; he didn't punish them for it then...though it was wrong... HOWEVER...NOW he commands all men to repent...Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. God is no longer winking at it, and it sure won't be a man-made idol who judges them.
  13. Words that give me a nervous jerkdown...

    ...or watching (what you hope to be) an informative/helpful video, and they use such words.
  14. Whats for Supper...

    Ham sandwich with Pepper jack cheese and tater tots...which brings up another word that I don't drives me crazy when people just call them tots.
  15. Why King James Only?

    I looked in my 1604 dictionary, but "church" wasn't listed. So, I looked in the 1650s dictionary, and it is listed. According to the definition of church then, it fits well with the context in which it's used in the King James. It still describes an assembly; albeit, for a particular purpose...but still an assembly of people...
