About Me: I used to believe that evolution was reasonable, that homosexuality was genetic, and that people became Christians because they couldn't deal with the 'reality' that this life was all there was. I used to believe, that if there was a heaven - I could get there by being good - and I used to think I was more or less a good person. I was wrong on all counts. One day I finally had my eyes opened and I saw that I was not going to go to heaven, but that I was certainly going to suffer the wrath of God for all my sin. I saw myself as a treasonous rebel at heart - I hated God for creating me just to send me to Hell - and I was wretched beyond my own comprehension. Into this spiritual vacuum Jesus Christ came and he opened my understanding - delivering me from God's wrath into God's grace. I was "saved" as an adult, and now my life is hid in Christ. I am by no means sinless, but by God's grace I am a repenting believer - a born again Christian.

The Buzz

Daniel's posts are almost always pastoral and God centered. I appreciate and am challenged by them frequently. He has a great sense of humor as well.
- Marc Heinrich

His posts are either funny or challenging. He is very friendly and nice.
- Rose Cole

[He has] good posts, both the serious like this one, and the humorous like yesterday. [He is] the reason that I have restrained myself from making Canadian jokes in my posts.
- C-Train

This post contains nothing that is of any use to me. What were you thinking? Anyway, it's probably the best I've read all day.
- David Kjos

Daniel, nicely done and much more original than Frank the Turk.
- Jonathan Moorhead

There are some people who are smart, deep, or funny. There are not very many people that are all 3. Daniel is one of those people. His opinion, insight and humor have kept me coming back to his blog since I first visited earlier this year.

Okay - New Template for a while.
Starting out all over again...You may have noticed a bit of a change on the blog. As I mentioned in my last post, sometime yesterday, I lost my template. I expect it happened as I was fiddling with the banner doo-hickey. I must have saved it at some point just after inadvertantly deleting most of it. I really don't know how that could have happened - but hey!

Being an IT professional, you would think that I would keep an up to date back up?


So this is going to be the template for a while at least. I am not so fond of the overly exotic CSS stuff, but once in a while I like to play a bit.

Let me know what you think. Er, except you Frank.

    umm, yuk...

    some random thoughts, from the hip...

    I am going insane with this stuff...having a hard time figuring it all out...that's what you get for mocking Libbie with your first banner entry (you probably didn't intend that, I know, but it was what I thought, my sin, not yours)...

    Mocking? I was .. um.. flattering her by my immitation... ;-)

    Those banners have been around for a while, and I just wanted to see if I could make one that didn't do anything - though I was goaded when I saw Libbie's...

    I knew it...SINNER!...

    oh, wait, that's me...

    well, it's all of us...

    amazing grace, indeed...

    I am no fan of it myself, though I do like some of the features, and will likely use them when I put a better template together.

    It seems I didn't save a copy of the former template anywhere (sigh!), so I have to do another from scratch. Hopefully it will be better than the previous one.

    Well, I think it is very interesting! wow.

    It's kind of nifty, but I don't like the fixed height - too much scrolling. Also, you should add titles to the image links.

  • At 7:20 AM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    Truth be told, after I lost my template, I slapped this up thinking I might keep it for a while - I like some of it - but like you David - I don't like the fixed scroll thing - and I prefer to have everything available on screen as opposed to "clickably available"

    Rose I am glad someone said something positive! Thanks!

    ok... them template is ok...

    however having to click on the banners to get a post to appear is annoying. because I can't view the posts in my rss reader... it only shows me the entry page :)

    Some more tweeking is needed for sure ;)

  • At 1:00 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    I wish I weren't so busy this week, I would put something up more quickly - but I will likely get to it later in the week.

    So, how exactly do you make a back up for your template? I thought blogger did that for you anyways.


  • At 1:25 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    To make a back up of your template, you go to your blogger dashboard, log in, go to your blog template - and select all the text in the template - and copy it into another application and save it in that application (a straight text editor is good enough).

    If blogger has a back up of my old template -I am not aware of it.

  • At 1:30 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    There I put it back to an older saved copy - it was annoying me too much.

  • At 2:06 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Fred Butler said…

    Save the template text in, say for instance, a word document?

    What about all your articles. Did they crash and burn also?


  • At 2:30 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    What about all your articles. Did they crash and burn also?

    They are still around - all that was lost was the template (the html that dictates the "look and feel" of the page.)

    I really ought to back up the sight though. I don't have any copies of any of my posts...

  • At 2:31 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    sight = site...

  • At 8:18 PM, August 21, 2006, Blogger Rose~ said…

    How does one back up their site? Do we do it one post at a time?

  • At 10:07 AM, August 22, 2006, Blogger Daniel said…

    Rose - there are some free products out there that let you "rip" a url - that is, they go to the URL and download everything they find. That would be quickest I suppose.

    The alternative would be to do it one post at a time.

    I would rather rip it, as I have over 250 posts already.
