Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Here's another picture in Cairo:

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Beautiful,  someday. I'd love to see the Northern lights like that.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

I really am very bummed that being a "nerd" now means little more than just consuming one or more of some predefined "nerd" products: Star Wars, anime, comic books, etc. It's very rare that one comes across a "nerd" who is actually smart.

As a note (with little information), I tried NCSA Mosaic a couple of years ago on a Mac to see if there was any compatibility to the internet and there wasn't. I can probably make a screen shot of Mosaic , but it is not clear there is any interest in nonfunctional images.

By a nonfunctional image do you mean an image of it not working... or just an image of when it was working (even though it doesn't work now)?

I meant you cannot even get to www.google.com. Your questions are more mindboggling, and therefore worthwhile pondering their meaning.
