Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument  about who was better on his computer. They had been going at it for days,  and God was tired of hearing all of the bickering. Finally God said, "Cool  it. I am going to set up a test that will run two hours and I will judge  who does the better job."

So down Satan and Jesus sat at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mail.  They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded.   They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They  did every known job.

But ten minutes before their time was up, lightening  suddenly flashed across   the  sky, thunder rolled, the rain poured and, of  course, the electricity went   off. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed. The electricity finally flickered back on, and  each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically,  screaming, "It's gone!

It's all gone! I lost everything when the power  went out!" Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files  from the past two hours.

Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait!   He cheated!  How did he do it?"

God shrugged and said, "Jesus saves."

My computer crashed- some funny vibrations causing the hard disk to scratch. It couldn't be fixed, only replaced. I had only partially backed up my files. Bummer. Lesson to all: back up your files. Immediately.


Been looking at the bookshelf at home and realized that there's quite a good collection of books (most of them left behind by Markus). Realized that the books are severely underutilized so I made some time to sort the books out. So here's an addition to the blog: bookshed. Just a list of books for borrowing if anyone is interested. The link is also on the right of the page.


Work is currently becoming more and more interesting. Currently assisting part-time on a project: the oil field is in Vietnam. I really thank God for such opportunity and if I do the job well, I'm hoping to get on the team full time. There's so much to be learnt! 


Christmas is coming soon. Happy times of course, but there's quite a bit of work to be done for Christmas prep. Gotta learn how to juggle all these responsibilities whilst remaining fair to myself at the same time. So help me Lord!
