Hiya y'all,

Messaging you guys from my workplace.
Last night the OE on my 7 year old PC crashed royally.
Glad I took a backup last month, and also got the system stable enough to
get another backup last night (now on CD).

Our new PC systems are on order, and I think I will take this time to grab a
break from being online (also speaking at Church this coming Sunday).

Rest assured I will soon be back online at home, and with a brand new
Athlon64 PC!! YAY!!!

Have a great 'Saturday 25th December'.

Come now Bob. You'll know that it isn't PC. In America they just have so
many different religions that it isn't practicable to list them all and for
every happy Christmas there is a merry hanica - however you spell it.
America is so multicultural Happy Christmas is just inaccurate.

(Never mind that Christmas trees are a pagan thing, as is Christmas cakes,
present giving, Santa, Yule logs etc and Christmas day was moved to coincide
with a pagan festival..... and so on.)

Whatever, spend some time with friends and family and enjoy yourselves.

What about those religions, groups and nerds who don't believe in
or celebrate *anything*, maybe even never takes a holiday? ;-P

BTW, when randomly surfing around last week I came across a number of
web pages about the cloudy and horrible origins of modern Christmas,
how it came that the Roman church once begun celebrating the birth
of the Christ at that time of year[1] and advice how a good Christian
should relate to the general celebration of the holidays.

[1] According to historicans, Jesus is more likely to actually have
been born in the late summer or fall, maybe July - September. In
order to convert heathens celebrating Babylonian sun god around
the winter solstice, the celebration of the Son was introduced
to replace the former.
