IP Six Day

I am such a geek.  Today is World IPv6 Day, and that is so exciting!  No really, that is exciting.  For, a geek this change in addressing opens up the internet for more and more stuff.  That’s a big deal in a connected world – I mean really having over 4 billion times more space is a great thing.

I was trying to think of some clever way to relate this to anything in the world, and I think I am failing this morning.  So, I guess, that fact that it’s IPv6 day is, well, a who cares moment.

But the fact that this day was made by the creator of the world, there is still life in the day!

So, change your IP addresses, and enjoy the day!

21-25 Thank you for responding to me;
you’ve truly become my salvation!
The stone the masons discarded as flawed
is now the capstone!
This is God’s work.
We rub our eyes—we can hardly believe it!
This is the very day God acted—
let’s celebrate and be festive!
Salvation now, God. Salvation now!
Oh yes, God—a free and full life! Psalm 118:24 The Message (MSG)

Hip to Be Square

Its Geek Pride Day!  Also know as Towel Day – a reference to “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”.  So the Daily Buffet will wear it’s Geekyness with Pride Today.  I think I will go march in a parade with all of my technology.

So for starters, here is the Klingon version of John 3:16

Klingon Language Version
3:16 | nuq ghajtaH moj vo’ the joHHom vo’ the heathen je such as ruled the Ha’DIbaHmey upon the tera’,

I guess!

Second, if you are really interested in tying the bible to Geeks and such,  there is a tween book at Amazon called Bible Freaks and Geeks.  Looks Great!

Third, back to John 3:16,  this time in three versions of Leet (1337), the hacker language from the New Hacker Version

And finally here it is from the LOLCats bible.  I am not kidding!

16 So liek teh Ceiling Kitteh lieks teh ppl lots and he sez ‘Oh hai I givez u me only kitteh and ifs u beleeves him u wont evr diez no moar, kthxbai!’

Ceiling Kitteh, are you serious!  What fun.  So pull up you waist band, wear your glasses with pride, enjoy the day, remember 1Cor 9:25-27

Happy Ada Lovelace Day

Its Ada Lovelace Day!!!  The day that girl geeks treasure!

Who, many of you ask, is Ada Lovelace?  Well, Ada Lovelace is the world’s first computer programmer.  Yes, that’s right.  She wrote software for Mr Charles Babbage’s analytical engine way back in the 1840’s!  That’s right again – the 1840’s.  It was really even more then that, she really developed software development!  Talk about bootstrapping!  Learn more about this incredible piece of geekistry here or here.

So all geeks of the world, I being one of them, raise their handheld devices today in honor of Lady Lovelace!

Also, there is a group called, that is rallying around this day to recognize women in science and technology.  So, I thought I could give a quick shout out, in honor of Lady Lovelace, to several of the great women who I develop software with everyday including a fellow daily buffeter – Lisa Ignaszak!  Thanks Lisa for all the great work that you do!  I will raise my sweet tea up to you today!  (Make sure baby-j takes you out to lunch! )

So today, don’t be bound by things that don’t bind.

27for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3:27-29 (New International Version)

Use the talents that you have been given, and make a difference in the world – one day at a time!

4There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. 5There are different ways to serve the same Lord, 6and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do.

7The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 (Contemporary English Version)

And to finish up a little bit of Ada to celebrate the day:

procedure Hello is

Random Thoughts <3 Day Edition

Its Friday again, and since this is a double bonus weekend- Presidents Day and Valentines Day, I thought I would provide some extra motivation

Hey Guys – need some Valentine Cards that will definitely keep the romance in the air.  Check these out.  I used them – the work great!

I remember making Valentine boxes. Well, I guess I remember just decorating a bag.  Not anymore, my oldest made a pirate ship one year for Valentine’s Day and this is what my youngest is taking today.  Complex:

And you know, no Valentine’s Day would really be complete with a reference to 1 Corinthians 13. Make sure you are doing everything with love not just this weekend but all the time.

1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
