May iGod be with you

You probably think I'm being facetious and even blasphemous against The Cult of the iJobs with this post, but no. Instead, it's the Anglicans at St Matthews who are taking a somewhat modern approach to sermons using... podcasts. In fact, it l (read the entire post)...

I don't think I'll ever be able to get used to the idea of Flash being a development platform but... OK, it works for some, so who am I to say anything? Baa Camp continued unabated throughout Saturday - in fact, it's still going on as of (read the entire post)...
