To you and to yours, a grace filled Christmas. May you experience the richness of the Incarnation in the 8 days of Christmas.
Here is a newspaper article about my web design in the early days. The newspaper is from 1996. I spent many late nights, early mornings, typing all kinds of information not websites and using html. I started with a personal website, parish website, and the original diocesan website. So much has changed. Now I do it all the lazy way with WordPress. I like some of the changes but really dislike a lot of them. In those days there were few of us and only personal pages. No business had a website and when I stated building the diocesan website they thought I was crazy. “This is only a fad.” “In a few years the won’t be a World Wide Web.” They were all wrong. I’m are still here today with about a dozen websites. As I thought then, I still think now. We have to embrace technology for the spread of the Gospel. Unfortunately, liberals, heretics and perverts have also embraced it and now they control it. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…”
Merry Christmas! I remembered all of you in my Mass on the Feast of Our Lord’s Nativity.
I will carry you and your intentions to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass during this holiest of days. Below, some pictures of my trip to the Holy Land taken on January 17, 2020 in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
I’m just so tired of being ripped off for Laser Jet Toner. For years, I have been using HP Color LaserJet printers. And dread every time that flashing warning comes on telling me to replace one of the cartridges. It almost feels cheaper to replace the whole printer. At least you get the cartridges and the latest technology.
As I was doing some printing yesterday, my printer stoped printing and the warning started flashing “Change Magenta Cartridge.” And the led shows the other cartridges being closed to empty. Here we go again.
This time, I decided to go against the official warnings of the big tech companies. “Using toner from unauthorized sources can damage your printer.” At this point, I really don’t care. I’m tired of being held with the HP gun against my head. So I went to DuckDuck Go for suggestions. From there, I just went to Amazon. And after a lot of reluctance, I took the dive.
Normally, I just drive around the corner to Staples. It so convenient. You need ink right now, you come home with it in 15 minutes. Not this time! No, I’m not doing it.
Here is the comparison of prices:
- Staples – 1 Black, 1 Cyan, 1 Magenta and 1 Yellow all for a low price of $573.00
- The HP website is pretty much the same
- Greensky Remanufactured (Amazon) – 2 Black, 1 Cyan, 1 Magenta and 1 Yellow for a topping $69.70 with overnight Prime shipping
(There were many other deals on Amazon)
Thank you Greensky! I’ll never go back to the big tech rip off. Here are a few pics.
