Technology:

  • Windows makes it easier to preview apps — article by Daniel Cooper
  • A cyber attack at the Winter Olympics — This is not surprising, to be honest.
  • Speaking of the Winter Olympics, this is how you can watch it online
  • I use Chrome as my default browser.  However, it will eat up a ton of memory if you have numerous tabs open as I usually do. Currently, I am running 23 open tabs with some of them pinned (which means they are always running).  I have been experimenting with this Chrome Extension to see if it will do what it proclaims to do and so far I have been very pleased. I have tested it against a memory use graph to see if it does give me back the RAM as it promises. So far it is working as advertised.

Daily Roundup for January 16, 2018

Theology/Christianity:

  • A Catechism on the Heart — This is excellent.  Written by Sinclair Ferguson. 
  • The subject of church discipline is one that I have found, in my short experience as a pastor, is woefully misunderstood. Mark Dever writes on the subject.  Do you agree with him or disagree?  Perhaps a discussion on the merits of this article is in order.

  •  Four Reasons God is Not Answering Your Prayers — There are some weaknesses to this article, but overall it is good. Written by David Qaoud.

Technology:

  • I use Google Photos exclusively. In my opinion, it is the best way to store your photos because it does not tie up space on your phone.  Once the photo is uploaded to the server, you can safely dump it from your device. PC Mag has 25 tricks and tips for you to use if you are using it.
