    I am currently researching elements for a project that I have had in mind for a while. While version 1.5 of Xenforo, the software that "powers" Wondercafe2, is still being supported, version 2 has been out for almost a year (released last November). A major upgrade of 2, version 2.1, is imminent and seems to hold promise for adding some cool new features. So, I am finally seriously looking at what we need to do for an upgrade. It's not a huge project by the standards of my day job, but will...

    We have decided to implement Xenforo's "Staff" feature, but with a small hack to change the name from "Staff" to "Council" to fit our model.

    On the Members tab, it will auto generate a list of Council Members. so you can easily find out who is on Council. It also means I won't be maintaining a manual list in Council News & Business anymore since the list on the Members tab will update automatically when we add or remove moderators and admins. You can see the list in two places on the...

    Two weeks ago I made a resolution to read the Bible through this year.
    Someone mentioned 'Cherry Picking' - reading only the parts that I like or agree with.
    I'll deal with that by following a plan that covers the entire Protestant Bible; I don't want to read it cover to cover, front to back. So I searched the internet and found a plan for reading chronologically.

    Someone suggested that I should use a commentary. But what commentary. Again I turned to the internet;...

    On the radio today, I heard a speaker/writer (when I'm working around the house, I only catch parts of the radio commentary) suggesting that we should work to 65 and beyond, for both financial reasons and general well-being reasons. I stopped at age 60 because, although I didn't have a full pension, I felt that we older people needed to open up spaces for younger workers. I still 'work' as a volunteer, and as a LLWL, and occasionally at my brother-in-law's shoe store. Thoughts?

    From another thread, quoting myself,

    "...A more interesting question, to me, is "can you choose your belief system"? I don't think it's possible. I believe what I believe, not because I chose it, but because this is the vision that life has unfolded before me, based on what I have received via my senses in the past, and how my brain has organized that information. And I'm not entirely talking about our five physical senses. I believe we have at least one more sense - call it intuition,...
