“Given that Rorate Coeli and Shea are mad at Fr. Z, I think it proves Fr. Z knows what he is doing and he is right.”
"Let me be clear. Fr. Z is a shock jock, mostly. His readership is vast and touchy. They like to be provoked and react with speed and fury."

I’m sure my countryman James Joyce would have reJoyced in the possibilities of the Net, but that offering would puzzle even him in his most extreme Finnegan’s Wake mode
Eeek! Prayers being offered up for you, Father.
That can be Christine O’Donnell’s new campaign slogan.
LOL. I understand that perfectly, and yeah…there’s a lot of magic going on there.
I have no need for a svn repo. Do you speak Botchi?
“I think it was Arthur C. Clarke who said that technology which is sufficiently advanced is indistinguishable from magic.”
That is true.
But my favorite tech comeback is this:
“Any technology which is distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.”
Mario Bird: Do you speak Botchi?
No. But I’ve played bocce.
I’m aware that I’m geeking out with this upgrade – an upgrade to a shiny wordpress 3.0.1 install, latest versions of plugins, etc.
wo bu ming bai……
Re: Do you speak Botchi?
That gives me an idea. So many of our computer problems would be solved if someone could invent a real life R2D2…that little guy could fix anything.
I love the way the blog looks this evening. I hope you have reached an end to the difficulties.
Hey – I kind of like that header! Vincenzo needs to photoshop Fr. Z walking away, but , up closer on that path, wearing cassock and cappello romano!
Oh no…. It’s gone. I’ve broke Fr. Z’s blog-header. :(
Yes, it was Arthur C. Clarke. But I believe that it was technology that is sufficiently beyond the understanding of the audience. I could be wrong, though; it’s almost 50 years since I read that.
A GBS quote springs to mind – “all professions are conspiracies against the laity”.
Hahaa, that’s a great sentence! It took me a minute or two to figure out what it means, but I’m thinking that the sentence has something to do with a version control system. GIT is a type of version control system, for example, and a git-clone is when one clones a GIT repository into a new directory. Where I work we use an SVN repository, so methinks that “svn repo” may be what that refers to…
So I guess the sentence is saying that “someone” is using a git-clone (a clone of a GIT repository) as a SVN repository (version control system)…which is weird because that basically means “someone” is using a version control system as a version control system…I guess…haha. :-P
I do speak that language. I'm guessing tortoises were involved.
(Just to confuse things further.)
Is there an option to view the responses in time sequence rather than threaded? I prefer the threaded view for the initial reading, but it is extremely difficult to subsequently identify new responses.
