Remember he has to pay at least double for the Mac developers gear over what he pays for the PC guys and gals stuff.

You'd be surprised. Once you throw in the cost of software for development machines, Windows development boxes cost more (last time I checked).

MAtthew Henry quote very apposite and, having been burgled years ago, I add my dismay ot the violation and recognise the emotional damage can long outlast any physical issues. So very interesting to me ... and I looked for the reference. I could not find it, though I did find this:

"March 8, 1713, London.—I preached Mr. Rosewell's evening lecture, Ps. 89.16, 'The joyful sound.' As I came home I was robbed, The thieves took from me about ten or eleven shillings. My remarks upon it were,—1. What reason have I to be thankful to God, who have travelled so much, and yet was never robbed before. 2. What a deal of evil the love of money is the root of, that four men would venture their lives and souls for about half-a-crown a-piece. 3. See the power of Satan in the children of disobedience. 4. See the vanity of worldly wealth; how soon we may be stripped of it. How loose, therefore, we should sit to it."

Perhaps he later reflected on the event, and summarised it differently. Would like to know the reference if possible.

It reminds me one situation I have experienced some years ago when on Sunday morning worship service I used an illustration in my sermon about one man who was robbed but as he faced the damage, he said: "its nothing important, it's just money. All important things remained safe. I am still saved, I have my loving wife, my children, my health..."

On Wednesday, just 3 days later, our house was robbed. As I entered house and called police, I remembered that illustration and, believe me, it helped me so much, I repeated to myself: "it's just money, it's just money... all important things are OK Smile

Just got home from church and found this news. So sorry for the inconvenience. Couldn't help but think of Matthew Henry's quote at a time like this. On the night he was robbed, he wrote:

“I thank Thee first because I was never robbed before;

second, because although they took my purse they did not take my life;

third, because although they took my all, it was not much;

and fourth because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed.”

What an attitude! Glad no one was hurt.

B. J. Clarke

 

What a great quote...I'm going to remember that.

Couldn't find the other version of it, but the bit you quoted above is from p. 13 of his memoirs, which are available in entirety on Google Books.

Wikiquote has a little more info about the attribution of this quote:

Misquoted

I thank Thee first because I was never robbed before; second, because although they took my purse they did not take my life; third, because although they took my all, it was not much; and fourth because it was I who was robbed, and not I who robbed.


First reported in Arnold Gingrich, Coronet, Volume 17‎ (1944), which characterizes the quote as a diary entry. A much earlier report in "Life of the Rev. Matthew Henry", in Christian Biography (1799), p. 66, has Henry writing:


What reason have I to be thankful to God, that having travelled so much, yet I was never robbed before now. 2. What abundance of evil this love of money is the root of, that four men should venture their lives and souls for ubout half-a-crown a-piece. 3. See the power of Satan working in the children of disobedience. 4. The vanity of worldly wealth—how soon we may be stript of it, how loose we ought to sit to it.

I guess to check it out for sure, one would have to visit the Bodleian Library and request to see the "Papers of Philip and Matthew Henry" which contain his diary from 1705-1713. These papers were only given to the library in 1949, which might explain why Arnold Gingrich could have had private access to them already in 1944, but the Christian Biography account from 1799 might not have (Henry had died in 1714, so his descendants might have still had tight control over his papers). So it remains a mystery...  I love this kind of mystery! (Unfortunately, I don't think members of the public have access to the Bodleian; I think you have to be an Oxford student, faculty, or staff member.)

Actually, we have more developers assigned to the Mac team than the Windows team right now

 

Well, I WAS happy... Angry

Perhaps we should ask, "And where were you when the crime occurred? Can anyone verify that you were not in Washington?" Big Smile

Maybe the Windows developers just borrowed them to see how a good app is developed. Big Smile

Remember he has to pay at least double for the Mac developers gear over what he pays for the PC guys and gals stuff. In fairness the PC developers gear should be shiner. It'd still cost less.

While still popular among the PC-faithful, the "Mac hardware is wildly overpriced" assertion was debunked about 2 years ago here: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/apple-mac-leopard-windows-vista,1985-2.html I suspect the assertion is less apt today than it was then.

Yes, you can get low-end PCs that are cheaper than the lowest-end Macs, but if you actually talk about outfitting a PC that is comparable to a given Mac, the price differential FOR JUST THE HARDWARE is minimal. The article linked above actually does a part-by-part breakdown. And that doesn't even take into account the fact that Apple's cases and overall build quality are far superior to that of most PC manufacturers.

While the situation is sad, my gut reaction was another Mac Bible Software company had stooped to espionage. Big Smile

I thought the the same thing. I saw the A-Team this weekend and thought maybe the other bible software company hired them to get the laptops to see how a real program is made. (WOW did I really just say that?)

On Earth know not why.  In Heaven, robbery permitted.

Wonder about glorifying answers for Logos prayer requests ?

From past experience, know God works in wondrous ways (with perfect timing).

Brutal.

Anyway, just so everyone's fantasy worlds are moderately accurate, they were iMacs, not MacBooks.

I pray for the CSI's and police as they investigate that You would lead them to the right people.

This may prove fruitful. Taking into consideration that all processors are electronically branded these days.

Additionally, the office that was robbed is getting back up and running as we speak.
