I'm reading one of Richard Dawkins's books. While some of his ideas are interesting, they don't seem to be an obstacle to my faith.
Maybe it's because he comes across as completely condescending. Maybe it is also because of the very broad brush he paints with, completely missing the details that make religions different from each other.
Going through the process of switching to Covenant Eyes for accountability and filtering.
It's ironic given my concerns about privacy lately. I allow people to see blurred screenshots of my activity and a history of my browsing.
However, I've had a long history with temptation and lust. Sometimes privacy is something you willingly give up in order to gain freedom from something else.
Just curious, what technologies, apps, etc. do you use to keep communication and browsing data private online?
Where do you draw the line between convenience and privacy?
I'm just trying to find a good middle ground at this point. I need to communicate with people and browse the web but, I also know how much data the big tech companies get about us on a regular basis.
@Cade_One Sorry I haven't gotten back to you re: the board game convention as of yet. Tanya and I are still talking/thinking.
Conventions/social events are not really a strong suit for us. However, we do often vacation in western PA so, there still might be something do-able there.
This is a very exciting and stressful time in my life. I've acted as a supporting member of the Attic Door Productions team producing The 13th Dol: A Fan Game of The 7th Guest for 9+ years!
The game is finally launching this Halloween! It's been a long and hard journey for Attic Door, a team of 7 on and off members building and testing the game in addition to their full-time jobs, etc.
If interested, please give the game a look by visiting http://the13thdoll.com and wishlist it on Steam!
Started watching Unplanned tonight. It's available on Hoopla Digital through many libraries. Was initially cynical because it is a lower budget Christian film, and even as a devout Catholic I have a hard time buying into their message.
Not so with Unplanned. Some of the acting isn't great and some of the music doesn't fit but, the movie itself is gripping.
Good morning everyone! 190930

Hey @Mastodon ,
Can Mastodon instances talk seamlessly with Diaspora* pods? Just curious.
@freedomboxfndn Didn't know you existed until today. Very cool project!
There is a great Android privacy app called Blokada that helps to block advertisements and app identity tracking. You can't get it on Google Play, you need to download it directly from https://blokada.org/ .
Blokada includes pre-made block lists that include common advertisers and trackers.
Just be sure to exempt "critical" applications from the blocks. I found some issues with my cell provider's apps until I exempted them.
@commandlinekid Speaking of adoption of Mastodon, do you have any ideas on how to increase adoption of Mastodon in general? How can we get more maintstream users to join these instances?
@commandlinekid You might want to add labels/sections to the mastlist which would make it easier to identify politicians, news sources, celebrities, Catholic users, etc. I know that would take extra time but, it might also increase adoption of follows by allowing people to find specific categories of interest.
@George I sometimes get 503 errors when trying to search for fediverse users such as atWilliamShatner@mastodon.club Is that normal? Had it happen a couple of times today
I struggle in having a regular prayer life. I know a variety of different prayers and also have apps to provide a lot more. Apps like Hallowed are pretty cool as well.
However, I can't seem to find a consistent prayer time that works for me. What times seem to work best for others with jobs, families, etc?
@commandlinekid Thank you for setting up the Fr. Peter and Fr. Schrenk bots.
Please pray for peace regarding the political situation in the USA. I don't think the end result of the impeachment investigation/process will be good for the country, regardless of outcome.
That being said, we never know what good God intends for us through suffering. I say that but, not sure i'm ready for the strong opinions and arguments in the coming weeks.
