Well, friends, this marks the first of the changes about which I had promised. The Christian Geek has now moved from the free WordPress website to its own hosted site.

What this means is that for you to continue reading the ‘Geek, you will need to go to http://www.TheChristianGeek.net.

The truth is that many of you have already been doing this. I have always held the domain name. Up until now, it had simply redirected to the free WordPress.com site. You only need to make the change if you had bookmarked the WordPress.com site, typed that in for access or were following me through WordPress.com.

This is the first of the changes that will allow me to give more frequent posting, better performance and more goodies for you.

I will still be able to be reached at raul@thechristiangeek.net. If you have trouble accessing the new site, contact me ASAP. (And I already know the RSS feed is broken!)

God bless,
Raul

Changes are coming!

Posted: December 30, 2014 in General

Hi friends,

I know it’s been awhile since regular postings, but things have been insane the last 10 months or so. Not only work and health, but a podcast and other blogging duties have taken up my time.

The good news is that I am not only rested, but am taking the Geek to the next level. Expect some changes and much more regular postings as the new year rolls in. Most of the changes are going to be under the good to give a better running site

It you’ve been praying for me, and I know many if you have, thanks and do continue. It’s helped me through a rough year.

See you again very soon!

City of Houston demands pastors turn over sermons | Fox News.

This is something I’ve been warning about for a long time.  The question is whether these pastors are going to serve God or Satan?

One of the most unique aspects of the personal computer industry, I think, is the fascination of successful companies doing everything in their power to destroy themselves.  In the 1980’s it was Apple that threw away PC industry dominance by sticking to a high-priced proprietary architecture when the world demanded open systems.  Of course, Apple has largely marched to its own drum and has variously survived or prospered.  Blindly ignoring the Apple example, IBM did the same with the PS/2 in the latter part of the decade.  Lotus committed suicide with an insistence of a copy protection scheme that did nothing more than harass legal users until Borland took over the market with Quattro Pro and its “like a book” license.  Yes.  It was Borland that beat Lotus 1-2-3, not Excel.  Not many today realize this.   (more…)

A Personal Word On Where I have Been

Posted: November 27, 2013 in General

I’ve had a few questions about where I’ve been over the last few months, regarding the blog.  I’ve also been much reduced in my social network activity, doing little more than repost some articles that interest me on my Facebook page.  I’d like to take a few moments to give an update to my friends who may not know yet.

Welcome

Friends, I’ve been away for a bit.  If you want to know more, check here: A Word On Where I’ve Been.

Welcome to the Christian Geek. It’s pretty safe to say that this will not be your typical blog. Tech, gadgets, sci-fi and geekery in general are welcome here as well as Christian thought and perspectives. Though you don’t often see them together, there is no reason why they shouldn’t mix.

Before Reviewing the pages here – and especially before posting – I would encourage you to read the information in Welcome To My Sandbox. It will make all our lives here much more fun!

Just remember that this is a work in progress.  As my proficiency improves I will be changing the way things function here.  Don’t panic though, my goal will be to never make it hard for you to find the areas of your interest.

God Bless,

Raul
