I love Vincent. Best animal character ever.


Got paid by Gardner-Webb today. I think I’m making about $2.23 an hour to teach!  Yay capitalism.

Fraser’s Affiliate Marketing Blog Podcast

Fraser does a great podcast show out of the UK and interviewed me on my online marketing thoughts earlier this week… In this interview I had a great chat with Sam Harrelson from Cost Per News about many aspects of affiliate marketing and more. I’ll let the related links part give you an idea of what we talked about. Interview with Sam Harrelson – Cost Per News – Fraser’s Affiliate Marketing Blog

Mysterious Universe

I listen to a lot of podcats. I’ve done a lot of podcasts as well. I’m always getting asked which marketing podcasts I listen to. My answer is none. They all suck (well, except for Fraser’s and Shawn’s). I need to give WebMasterRadio a try again, I guess. But, I do love Mysterious Universe. I’ve been listening since last summer and the show only gets better each week. Great stuff and very well produced. If …

This is What the Kingdom of God Looks Like…

This is just an amazing picture and story. Taman Safari animal hospital in Java, Indonesia have four babies in their care who normally wouldn’t get along. A pair of baby orangutans and a pair of Sumatran tiger cubs both endangered species were rejected by their mothers, and are being raised in the hospital’s nursery, where they became inseparable friends. In the wild, tigers eat orangutans. Neatorama » Blog Archive » Unlikely Friends.

I’ve Unleashed Waynebuntu

I’ve converted my wife, my mother in law, potentially a Lutheran priest and now Wayne Porter.  Ubuntu will never be the same again after Wayne gets through with it.  What have I done? I need to send him a hat 🙂 My old IBM Thinkpad X40 (story below) now sports this O/S and it screams like a bat out of hell (you might try Ubuntu 6.06 if your PC is rather dated)….so far so good…. …

Dura Europos Synagogue Paper

Here’s a paper (and the basis for my PhD thesis) I banged out covering the issue of Midrashic understanding of the paintings in the synagogue at Dura Europos… dura-paper-spring-2007-williams-february-26-2007-gwu-2.pdf What is Dura Europos, you ask? Ah, well… you have homework!

NPR : Creating Our Own Happiness

NPR : Creating Our Own Happiness I believe we have the power to create our own happiness. I believe the real magic in the world is done by humans. I believe normal life is extraordinary – Wayne Coyne I love the Flaming Lips and Wayne Coyne. I want “Do You Realize?!?” played at my funeral, btw.

World Of Warcraft on Ubuntu

Thunder and Snow?

Mom just sent this over on email… “It thundered in the winter time yesterday so that means so said papa carroll that it will snow or sleet within two weeks we will see.”

It Don’t Get Easy

I don’t even feel like writing today at CostPerNews. It’s not burn out or disillusionment… it’s just my own reservations about the place becoming something other than a blog. Is it already too late? I’m having to watch my tongue there and keep on the correct side of the line. Is there room for honesty when you have paid placements, or do the people paying (and reading) want honesty? I’m guessing they do since they …

Marketers Disappoint Me

Where did it all go wrong? Affiliate marketing, especially.  So much promise and potential there.  So much good that can and should be done with such a powerful, democratic and individualistic platform. Stupid money. Someone restore my faith in marketing (online or offline) … please?


Wayne is thinking of switching one of his boxes over to Ubuntu. What are you waiting for, Wayne?? Even Anna uses it and seems to like it. At least her laptop is much quicker than it ever was with XP and she can do (just about) anything with it that she could do with Windows. Most of all, it’s fun to watch her play with tarballs, sudo apt-gets and compilers. That’s what technology is for… …

Finishing Paper on Deuteronomistic History

Specifically on the importance of 2 Kings in the DH.  Read up on chapters 22 and 23 of 2 Kings if you haven’t done that in a while.  Fascinating stuff… Deuteronomist – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia King Hezekiah centralised the religion and destroyed places and objects of worship that were outside of the control of the Jerusalem Temple and its priesthood. The Assyrian empire invaded Judah shortly after Hezekiah died, and gained suzerainty. Subsequent kings …
