This link (courtesy of Piers Young at Monkeymagic) will be sacrilegeous to some, and funny to others. Some programmers have developed a little applet called iGod, tagged ‘Repenting made easy’. This sort of program can trace its development back to early text editors—I remember in DOS there was one called Jive, where it would translate basic English to jive. Here, the theory is you talk to God and He replies, in Frutiger Light Condensed, although you can eventually catch out the program when it gives you a non-sensical response.
The program does state that it is strictly for humorous purposes only. My view is that the Big Guy gives us all inspiration—to make others laugh, to help other living things—so something which touches my funny bone, religiously themed or not, gets my vote. Christ is risen! Posted by Jack Yan, 03:41
Happy Easter to you, too, Peter!
It’s been a pleasant Easter day. No TV ads allowed today, so happily there are some shows that don’t have interruptions …
No TV ads allowed today -- really?!? That sounds fantastic! Is that a local or a country-wide restriction? (Or were you being facetious and I’m just utterly naïve?)
Thank you, Randy! And Peter, I wasn’t kidding. It’s a nation-wide restriction on Christmas Day, Good Friday and Easter Day here. Technically, I believe shops have to be closed as well or face prosecution (though there are exceptions like petrol stations).Post a Comment

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
