Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-146: Headlines: E-mails Don’t Crash

I am not following with great interest the current scandal about the lost e-mails.  It is following me.  The problem is we are on the road and my wife has TV on in the hotel room and the radio going when we drive.  I can’t avoid it.  It is just another example of media foolishness.

Think about your e-mail account.  We are traveling.  I can take my computer and, over the hotel wifi, access my wife’s e-mail account.  All I need are passwords and such.  The reason I can do that is all our e-mails are stored at the G-mail site, not on our computer. 

I would hope that secure government offices don’t use G-mail but I think the principle is the same.  It doesn’t really matter if the hard drive crashes.  The e-mails are stored and backed up somewhere else. 

Also one of the reasons we are seeing so many scandals out of Facebook it that once something is posted on the internet it is around forever.  You can’t get rid of it.  That means that no matter what the tech or non-tech does to get rid of the evidence, if it went on the internet it is still out there.

You want to find the e-mails?  DEFCON is coming.  Ask the hackers to find them.  Give them a few minutes.  No problem

If we have not e-mails it is because no one wants the e-mails.
