Churches With No Message
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. ~ Proverbs 29:18
Okay, so I’m taking that verse totally out of context, I know. Suspend judgement for a minute while I apply that statement to web design. Where there is no vision, websites perish. If I had a dime for everytime someone flippantly said “I need a website” and nothing came of it, I’d be able to pay off my student loans (okay, maybe not but you get the point).
Since everyone else seems to be giving these away like candy, I decided I should get rid of mine, though I rarely actually use my GMail account. So, if you’re one of the 10 or so people left that don’t have a GMail account, comment on this thread and I’ll getcha hooked up.
On another note, this semeseter seems to be shaping up to be a good one. After what was probably the worst semester in seminary thus far, this lineup of professors looks to be a breath of fresh air.
This isn’t to say that Dreamweaver itself is junk, by no means. In fact, I think it’s probably the best and most robust web-design program there is. That being said, I’ve found my attention being drawn to a lighter, faster program lately. It’s called Araneae, and is a freeware (that’s right, totally free) program from Ornj.net (pronounced Orange, I think). The creator of the program is Mark McIntyre, a Computer Science graduate student in Canada.
That’s great you’re thinking, but what about the program, right?
Welcome to the grand re-opening of SonSpring.com. Okay, so maybe it’s not so grand, because for those of you who have seen this site before, the look is pretty much unchanged. But, like a sports car with a new, revamped engine, this site now has something different under the hood.
I’ve adapted the site to run on the content management system called Textpattern. It’s a PHP/MySQL dependent system that makes site updates a whole lot easier.
If you’re like me, you probably have either Adobe Acrobat or at the very least, Adobe Reader installed on your computer. For the sake of compatibility, it’s hard to get by without being able to read PDF documents. And since the reader is free, most people just go ahead and download it.
