Comments on bible reading

I’ve been reading through the book of Joshua in the bible and it’s a pretty violent book as Joshua slays the kings and kingdoms around him. I frequently see the term smote with the edge of the sword. However this is in stark contrast to what Jesus says in the new testament that he who lives by the sword will perish by the sword. I don’t see how these two events collaborate with each other. I still believe the Bible is the word of God but I have some difficulty in understanding these opposite actions found in the bible.

Ran a backup on server

Had one of the drives on the server go offline in the RAID for some reason. Almost appears like the drive got loose or pulled somehow. Once resented the drive and rebuild it to the raid everything was back to normal however there was some MySQL database corruption on the /var file system. fsck reported the file system as clean but the database refused to come up. Once I ran newfs on the file system and ran the backup everything was ok. We may get a cover to avoid someone pulling the drive in the future as that is what appears to have happened.

Website work completed

I have been working with my father on a website design for several weeks and yesterday we finished. Glad we were able to complete it as it was a lot of work but the results show for themselves as it is a good site. I haven’t been posting on here as much as I would like but for whatever reason I haven’t been logging on here as much. I will do something about that and be more disciplined in my posting.

Birthday Post.

So it’s my birthday today and boy is it cold outside with one degree Fahrenheit.  My family and I went to Texas of Brazil were we had a great lunch which filled me up for the rest of the day. I’m glad both my parents where there and I enjoyed there company very much. I had a lot of postings from Facebook as well like cousins and friends. We are doing my birthday cake tomorrow.

Post from iphone

Well I am making my first post from my iPhone.  Typing on a touch phone is great for short entries not long ones as it is tedious to type long messages on here. Here is a picture from Lincoln park zoo Christmas lights.


Starting the New Year.

The new year has started and I am welcoming the changes it brings. I am very much ready for these changes and I’m looking forward to seeing them in action. Sometimes it appears that things from previous years have been lingering around but hopefully that will not be the case this year.
