Apologies if you're here because I followed you and you are trying to work out why - I followed you because I think you sound interesting. I'm not expecting you to follow me back - my interests are far, far wider than the stuff I talk about.

Sodom, which had no Bible,

no preachers,

no tracts,

no prayer meetings,

no churches, perished.

How then will America and England be spared from the wrath of the Almighty, think you?

We have millions of Bibles, scores of thousands of churches, endless preachers—and yet what sin!

Your Facebook activity could prevent you from getting a mortgage.

Almost 1/3 of 25-34-year-olds have had an issue getting a mortgage because of data from their social media. But do we value this personal data enough?

Doing development over ssh is painful when your internet bombs out for a minute or two every 40 minutes or so, unpredictably - and you lose all your ssh terminals and have to reconfig your firewall each time because static IP.

I wish someone would invent an android/etc app where you can put in days/hours where a person is busy or asleep (nap time!) And when you go to ring them in those hours, it pops up first with a message like "Grandpa is next door playing 500 until 9pm, are you sure you want to call him?" E.g. if you know that grandpa always plays 500 on Thursday evenings

"The program to leverage immunization as an opportunity to establish digital identity was unveiled by ID2020"

Please read the above sentence maybe 2-3 more times.

Only four weeks ago I was saying how our local congregation is so comfortable. If God turned up and supernatural things started happening and people were repenting and becoming Christians, most of us would be annoyed. We have this culture of "the show must go on" and act like we don't really need God to be involved in our 'church'... I wonder how much more uncomfortable we have to get as a community before we start getting a bit radical about praying more than five minutes when we need something! I wonder.

All the festivals are cancelled. Local gigs, cancelled. Bars, closed.

Today more than ever I am thankful for the Fediverse ability where users can mute terms but still find out what ELSE is going on in the world.

An Italian hospital ran out of ICU valves. A local biz brought a 3D printer to the hospital, redesigned & produced the valves in a few hours.

“At the time of writing, 10 patients are accompanied in breathing by a machine that uses a 3D printed valve.“

Ok. To counter the panic and bring us all a step back to normality, I propose #ShoppingDone. Where you post your successful shopping. Because supply lines ARE working. Here’s mine. Everything for the weekend. No problem. And yes, I’m not the healthiest foodie. Shrug.

"The God we worship can save us from you and your flaming furnace. But even if he doesn't, we still won't worship your gods and the gold statue you have set up.”

Kylie Moore-Gilbert is still stuck in Evin prison in Iran on fabricated charges. This isn't OK.

Has anyone else noticed from reading the old testament how often people whinge and grumble and how much God *doesn't* like it

I've discovered a new way to get people to leave me alone: start playing "Shine Jesus Shine". Incidentally why on earth is that still on the CCLI top #100

I love reusable mugs, like my KeepCup. Partly because it means less rubbish polluting our planet, and partly because reusable mugs are essentially grown-up sippy cups... and I am *over* spilt coffee
