My twelve year old computer recently crashed. It ran Windows 2000. I bought a new computer loaded with Windows 8. I've gone from driving a Model-T Ford to a fully loaded Lexus. There are more features than I need or would ever want.
Three days after I set up my new computer the modem light turned red and I had to replace the modem. Now my system is infected with Adware and I haven't been able to get rid of it. All this to explain why I haven't been posting much at Just Genesis.
A few thoughts.
I miss my old computer and system which was much more suited to a scholar doing research. I don't want games. I don't want Amazon.com or e-Bay. I don't use the computer for entertainment or to make purchases. It sickens me when students fall asleep in class because they stayed up to 3:00 am playing computer games.
I hate pop-ups. I hate advertisements. Since the inception of this blog over seven years ago I have refused to load Google Adsense which I regard as clutter and distraction.
I have persevered through 35+ years of research on the book of Genesis and many years work in Biblical Anthropology. God grant me patience to endure the challenges of this new system.
