Sign outside Bear Flat Valley, Arizona

Wednesday, July 16, 2003

OK, to appease certain complainers (shane) I am actually posting a real post. One I made up myself.

I need a job. Badly. I signed up to work with a temp agency this morning, so at least maybe I'll have something. Temp agencies like me because I'm a geek and can do stuff that most temps can't. Mainly because most other geeks have real jobs and can't temp. So I am sure they'll call me soon.

I've been praying about what to do after seminary. I am finally getting through the "Go to seminary" command, but the question is what do I do after that. There is no question of whether or not I will go overseas. Just where and with whom? I think I am finally coming to a conclusion though, based on a phone conversation I just had. I won't reveal it right now, per my phone discussion, but I can say that I think I finally felt something click in my heart. I will continue to pray about it though.

If you think of it, pray for me. Pray for endurance and for peace. And for trust. I've been stuggling with some things that I don't really know how to deal with. I think I am starting to come through the other side, but this whole past year has been rough. Reminds me of Derek's song Thankful, "..ran across a old box of letters...you know I had to laugh at the same old struggles, that plagued me then are plaguing me still. I know the road is long, from the ground to glory, but a boy can hope he's getting someplace...". I take strange comfort in the verse that there's no sin uncommon to men (not sure where that is). We may look at others and think that they have it at least more together than we do, but it's completely untrue. Either they work very hard at hiding it, or you don't know them well enough.

Government Warns of Mass Hacker Attacks

Wednesday, July 02, 2003



WASHINGTON — The government and private technology experts warned Wednesday that hackers plan to attack thousands of Web sites Sunday in a loosely coordinated "contest" that could disrupt Internet traffic.

Organizers established a Web site, defacers-challenge.com, which was shut down early Wednesday evening. Before it was removed, the site listed in broken English the rules for hackers who might participate. It cautioned that "deface its crime" — an apparent acknowledgment that vandalizing Internet pages is illegal.

"The FBI is taking this very seriously," FBI (search) spokesman Bill Murray said. "Hacking is a crime and those who participate in this activity will be investigated and brought to justice."
