The Temple in Jerusalem


I love BLDGBLOG. It's the greatest. In a recent interview, there is a Roman wall carving showing the sack of Jerusalem. It's showing an event from Biblical prophecy from another side. It makes it more real, a stereo viewpoint that makes the flat pictures seem to exist in space. It makes me think about other stories, and what the people involved thought. What did the people in Jericho think when they were attacked by the Israelites? What was the Egyptian impression of the Exodus? I've wondered about the centurion who nailed Christ's hands to the cross: did he realize, as he felt for the gap in the bones in the wrist, that what he was doing would become something sacred?

Free software

Have you ever wanted to record a video of what is happening on your computer screen? There is a free program to do called AviScreen it that works very well. I use it to make better presentations at work.
Some other useful programs are Neat Image, to remove noise (aka "grain") from images and Superbot, to download an entire website at once. To get rid of spyware, I recommend Spybot.
If you want to know what's taking space up on your hard drive, try WinDirStat.
Let me know what other things you want to do, and I'll tell you what free software is out there. I've tried a lot of it.
