Guten morgen, y'all.

I've been up since 5 AM and I'm working with my eyes closed. Is that a bad thing?  :D

I knew I was forgetting something!

I am a contract transcriber, so while I can technically close my eyes while typing, it apparently isn't such a hot idea. Hmph!

Who can't type with their eyes closed? How much can you bring down while transcribing on contract? I wudda figured that would have been one the first things outsourced to India or the like.

I could easily transcribe at times whiling working this contract. Might even give me reason to break out my dvorak skills or revisit the stenography I would watch my mother do.

EDIT: I actually doubt I could it very well after my last head injury. Killed my ability to type. Well hamstrung it at least at times.

I can type with my eyes closed, but I was so sleepy that I started nodding off and missing snippets of audio. That's the problem, not just typing with my eyes closed (although i made an error or two while doing that because i was typing so quickly).

The problem with growing up, is it traps the childlike imagination in a rigid box of logic and reason, try thinking outside the box, theres more color out there.
Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

ARGH!!! I just spent half an hour making a post on another forum, and when I tried to preview it I got an error message, and then got another message saying that they were upgrading the forum. "We apologize for the inconvenience." So I lost the post. Gee, thanks for the apology. A WARNING would have been more helpful.  >:(

Been there, done that. I had this amazing (prideful, much?) post for a woman who was losing faith in God and the website did the same thing. I was so frustrated that I walked away.

I'm glad this website will let me copy my posts, even as it is trying to post my response.

Firefox (open-source browser) has a free add-on called 'Lazarus' which saves everything you type for just such instances.

When something unexpected like that happens... all you have to do is right-click in the (now empty) form field and Lazarus will 'resurrect' your lost posting.

It has saved me at least twice recently that I can recall... just another reason why I love Firefox.

Ankh symbolises both life (original meaning) and freedom (Loghan's Run).

OK... But wouldn't an actual Christian Cross better represent a software add-on called 'Lazarus'?

On a somewhat related note, I kind of like ankhs. I used to pray that I was Egyptian goddess when I was a child (see how much sense that makes for a child in Catholic school  ::)).

Don't get me wrong - I don't really particularly have any problem with the ankh in and of itself...

I just don't see how it has anything to do with Lazarus.

Lazarus was raised by Christ -not some Egyptian goddess!

Isn't it funny though how the dreams of little girls can bring a smile to your face; and to your heart?

Some ancient Egyptian Christians seemed to have "Christened" the ankh, as is noticed here in this Coptic Christian codex in the 4th to 5th century:

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.

To most, Lazarus is merely a literary allusion now.  Who performed what doesn't matter. 

The Ankh represents more than just the biblical story, it represents the philosophy of Firefox, in addition to the purpose of the extension.  Plus, sci-fi references are always welcomed, rather encouraged, within the open-source world.

We just got coupons to Steak & Shake in the mail they expire after Pascha! Yay! Cutting them out immediately.  :D

I also got my Mad Men Season 4 DVD in the mail yesterday (the only DVD I've ever pre-ordered...well, besides NCIS Season 7!). Hopefully after work I can watch an episode or two.

My son who is in his last semester of college goes to Mad Men parties. Everyone dress in period clothes as best they can. Thin ties for the guys, lots of makeup and pearls for the Women, etc. Then they all watch the show together when it comes on.

I would love to be in on that! I love the big skirt/crinoline look (Trudy Campbell is my fashion idol  :D) but I think that I would stand out if I wore that anywhere else.

Had to look it up. Can't believe there's a Wiki page on "Steak and Shake". We are a pathetic species.
