As part of my sabbatical, I've had the chance to spend 10 days in Israel and Palestine. I'd highly recommend it.
I'm a fan of Cashback websites. They let you buy things online that you'd buy anyway, but you earn cash back for doing so.
I'd like to share a new cashback website I've found. It's called KidStart. It works in a unique way compared to other cashback sites you may have heard of. Because of this unique flavour, it is possible to earn cashback shopping on websites that don't offer cashback anywhere else.
I often hear it said that if you join a local church, you haven't just joined a branch of the church, or a part of the church. You are a member of the church. Each local church is the church. At the same time, the church throughout the world is one.
One thought just struck me that makes this clearer.
In the book of Exodus, the people are told how to build a tabernacle, a tent in which God can live. One of the pieces of furniture in that tabernacle is a golden lampstand. It symbolises that God lives amongst his people.
After over 10 years of development, SuperTuxKart has released version 1.0.
It's been a long road. In December 2009, the long task of porting over to an entirely new codebase, Irrlicht, was complete. In December 2014, a new version was released with a new graphics rendering engine that made the 3d graphics faster and a lot more realistic. But still the versions were numbered 0.x.
In my earlier post, I outlined my plans for a sabbatical next month. Part of the plan is for study. I said I'd explain what I plan to study.
In brief, I want to study two things, and they interrelate.
