The Ultimate Proof of Creation

This is a review of the book, The Ultimate Proof of Creation by Dr. Jason Lisle. In his book, Dr. Lisle attempts to give a wholly rational accounting as to how fundamental creationism is the only rational conclusion given the evidence that we have. In this review, I will note the (remarkably many) errors that Dr. Lisle made, and explain how these lead to a falsification of the premise that Dr. Lisle sets forth in the book.Read More

The BookStop Coffee Shop

Maryville has one coffee shop that I know of that is not on campus. I decided to pay it a visit today to see what it was like. The Book Stop Coffee Shop delivered the coffee and managed to do it well. Situated on main street between 2nd and 3rd, the Book Stop is right on my way to work! They have a decent but simple setup with good coffee and excellent service! As you walk in, you seem to get both the smell of coffee (yum!) and books. The majority of the shop is set up for books and antiques, but there are plenty of tables set up at the front for patrons. If you're in town visiting, go ahead and stop by. You won't be disappointed!

Ubuntu 9.04 RC - First Thoughts

I had an extra hour to spare a couple of days ago so I thought, “Why not install Jaunty?” Why not indeed! Well, now my laptop is running jauntily through its paces under Ubuntu 9.04 RC.

Unlike other releases, this one was a pretty easy upgrade. Not quite as easy as installing the 9.04 remix on that Eee PC, but close.

The only problem that I ran into was that my Broadcom wireless driver was not working out of the box, but after a little tweaking, it was fine. Ubuntu recognized that there was a Broadcom driver available and downloaded it, but for some reason, it wasn’t being used. The Hardware Drivers dialog showed that the Broadcom driver as “This driver is active, but is not currently in use.” Well, after deactivating the driver, then reactivating, it was fine.

Other than the wireless driver, the rest of the install and initial setup went quite smoothly. The new themes are quite slick, and the wireless drivers now connect to WPA2 corporate networks without a problem (yay campus secured networking!).

Check out some screenshots below and let me know if you have tried 9.04 yet in the comments.
