I seem to be in a Linux (Ubuntu) frame of mind lately, as far as blogging is concerned. Even though I am listening to American Vision's Gary DeMar speak about Matthew 24, I am still blogging the praises of Opera and Ubuntu (see previous posts). Both Linux and eschatology are fascinating and interesting.
Mind you, there are drawbacks to running Linux. There is no Internet Explorer in a Linux world (yet). There are limits to browser functionality in Linux versus Windows, which is why I praise Opera so much lately. I am finding out just how limited the other browsers are, and how Opera overcomes those limitations (usually).
Thanks for visiting.

As a retro journey to Linux excursions-gone-by, I am blogging about a pleasant surprise I experienced with Opera (the web browser) in Ubuntu Linux (which I have previously blogged about).

It seems that Opera has out-performed other browsers on my Linux desktop (Firefox, Chrome). In terms of media players (extensions/add-ons that play in the browser window), Opera is, well, a pleasant surprise. It has proven again and again that it makes playing media on different websites possible when other browsers fail.

Another key feature which has proven its functionality in this context is Lastpass. Opera installs this tremendous add-on for you, once you have visited the appropriate page and clicked on the easy-to-follow links and popup boxes. With the other browsers, you need a certificate in Linux-based file management to install this and other add-ons programs. :(

Well, that's all for now. Listening to The Antipodean Hour is one of my favorite occasional Preterist Pastimes.

The itch to blog is sometimes a difficult one to scratch. But I usually enjoy doing so at the playing of some video which I find edifying, such as that found at Mind you, this link will probably expire before or soon after you access it. 

"Ubuntu," for the unwashed masses, is a version of Linux which I installed (somehow) on my Windows-based PC. I am playing a video from Ligonier's Together for the Gospel 2006 Conference. Kind of boring, but it fills a void.

Well, thanks for reading.
