Why Use Gmail’s SSL?

A post over at hungy-hackers explains why you should active SSL for your Gmail account immediately.  Here is an excerpt:

The problem lies with the fact that every time you access anything on Gmail, even an image, your browser also sends your cookie to the website. This makes it possible for an attacker sniffing traffic on the network to insert an image served from http://mail.google.com and force your browser to send the cookie file, thus getting your session ID. Once this happens the attacker can log in to the account without the need of a password.

From Tominthebox:

Atlanta, Georgia — Note: TBNN is pleased to have Jeff Foxworthy as Saturday Morning’s guest writer.

Jeff: I’m happy to fill in to today for Brother Slawson.

You know, between Lakewood and Lynchburg, there’s over 30 million people who I’d call “my people.” Many of these folks are Calvinists, they just don’t know it. I’ve designed for today a few little test questions to help you determine if there is a large likelihood that you are a Calvinist. So, if sitting in a tub full of scissors sounds more appealing to you than listening to a Sunday School class share their personal gut feelings about a Bible verse, you are a good candidate.

If you have a Martin Luther Jell-O mold, you just might be a Calvinist.

If your child’s first word was “Westminster”, you just might be a Calvinist.

Or, if you send your mother tulips on Mother’s Day,

… you might be a Calvinist.

If you still remember the 8 speakers in order from the recent T4G conference, or

If a free Bible has ever arrived in the mail to you from John McArthur, or

If you have ever purchased 100 or more copies of the same John Piper book to hand out to random people you meet,

…you just might be a Calvinist.

If you purchased an MP3 player with the sole purpose of downloading sermons, or

If you were shocked to just discover that some people download MP3 files that are not sermons, or

If you have adjusted the default passage setting at http://www.biblegateway.org from “NIV” to “ESV”

… you might be a Calvinist.

Top Ten Reasons the Reformed Theologian did not Cross the Road

10. A woman already crossed, and he would be in sin if he followed

9. The road is not safe if it wasn’t built between 1500-1700 AD

8. He believes that “road crossing” has ceased

7. The crossing guard was only helping people cross from one side, so he suspiciously thought he was denying double pre-destination

6. Romans 9 says nothing about crossing roads

5. The “Walk” sign was gender neutral

4. The road was called Tiber Ave

3. John Wesley said that God’s prevenient grace would pave the way, but he had to take the steps himself

2. He wasn’t elected to cross before the foundation of the road

1. Piper said that God is most glorified when we are most satisfied where we are

Blogroll Updated

The latest post on the Logos Blog asks readers to add them to their blogrolls, in exchange for some publicity, and I believe, some free books:

We’ll even do you a favor in return. Our blog post on Monday, April 28, will feature all of the bloggers who have us in their blogrolls—at least all the ones we know about. Make sure to let us know by leaving a comment on this post and sending an email to blog@logos.com with Blogroll in the subject line. (Make sure to do both in case one doesn’t make it.) What if we’re already in your blogroll? That’s okay. We’ll make sure you make the list either way.

Quarter-Life Crisis

While not an authoritative post on the subject, I was pleased to see the topic brought up in a recent Boundless article, which I’ve cleaned up a little to present below.  Hopefully it should stimulate some thought.  All too often we stop at labeling or categorizing instead of digging deeper to find find the root or cause.  And here this article gives a good perspective on what might really be going on in our (my) hearts.  Then, we must make our own personal application and resolve to do something about it:

Briefly, the quarterlife crisis hits people sometime after college and before they turn 30 when they realize that, well … life is hard!  Tim Elmore, a protégé of leadership guru John Maxwell, says “It’s 25-year-old people who are seeing counselors and therapists because they haven’t yet made their first million, haven’t yet found the perfect career or the perfect mate,” Elmore explained. “It’s self-imposed stress and pressure.”  This age group, dubbed “millennials” by demographers, are “much less attuned to reality” than previous generations, Elmore said.
