Finished up watching all of The West Wing just now. I’m two episodes short of finishing up the entire Star Trek: The Original Series.
There are a combination of letters on a table that sits at the front of First Presbyterian in Golden that look like this:
I puzzled over it for a while and finally asked Earl Palmer from University Presbyterian in Seattle.
One of the things I like about talking with Earl is that he just doesn’t give you the answer. For instance, Earl could have just said, “It means Iota Eta Sigma.” But no. He explained that it’s one of the Greek words for Jesus, coming from the Greek word Î™Î·ÏƒÎ¿Ï…Ï‚ (Iesous) which translates to ‘Jesus’, but is often just shortened to Î™Î·Ïƒ. To get from Î™Î·Ïƒ to IHS, make the former all upper case letters: Î™Î—Î£. Almost there, the last thing you need to know is that Î£ is the letter Sigma. So, take the ‘S’ from Sigma and you have IHS.
Earl then went on to explain Î§ÏÎ¹ÏƒÏ„Î¿ (Christos) that means Christ (natch) and is often abbreviated to Î§Ï.
And finally, Î‘Î© (Alpha/Omega) which refers to Revelation 22:13:
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Here’s the site I used to lookup the exact Greek definitions/spellings of what Earl gave me: http://www.htmlbible.com/sacrednamebiblecom/kjvstrongs/STRINDEX.htm
Wikipedia also has an article on the Christogram.
I can’t vouch for him or the laptops, but they appear to be decent deals. Gary Anderson, my math teacher from SAAS also owns an Acer Tablet and as far know likes it a lot.

Good news everyone! Straight from a one-eyed alien’s mouth – 13 new episodes of Futurama have been confirmed by Katey Sagal on Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show. All the original actors have signed up too.
I use 30Boxes as my calendar and it’s been work really well, until I got to Boeing. I couldn’t see my calendar! The site would load and I could see the header and footer, but the actual calendar was nowhere to be found. Curious.
I had no idea why this was happening, except maybe the proxy server was tweaking some of the HTML on the way to my system. So I tried using the Mines HTTP VPN portal to see if that would make a difference. It did: I could now see the default calendar. But I couldn’t log in.
So I tried to view the site straight
up , and it worked! Weird.

Dad finally called Magnolia
Hi-Fi Audio/Video and they’re going to send a tech out on Friday to fix it, replacing the convergence board. Sounds like this is one of the more common parts that goes wrong when things go wrong (which isn’t too often).

Just saw Dr. Davis (my pediatric dentist) at The Home Depot.
The television downstairs is broken. It doesn’t want to converge the colors which is bad. Can’t use it for anything!

This one is for the new interns:
When you go outside of the Boeing premises, take your badge off or stuff it in your shirt. No one told me this at training until our group went out for lunch today. It’s not a big deal, more for personal safety.
