tell me what your avatar is?

I think I got it from Office 2007.  You can find a bigger picture on my website http://www.believershome.com/html/christian_brethren.html and a bigger picture in the pdf file "The pilgrim;s plough I" on the website.

didn't know it was there. I like it.

 

Interesting bio.  Tried to figure out how to email you.  Couldn't.  Have been pondering an MA in TESOL.  Wondering about it career wise (not secondary ed, more adult classes)

If you sign the guest book at believershome, I can email you back. I you dont want your signed guestbook on the website, I will get your email sent to me and then I can delete your post without it ever showing in the guest book. If that makes sense, that is the way to get an email to me.  Then I can email you back and we will have a connection.  For privacy reasons, I would rather do it this way.

My wife doesn't.  She avoids it like the plague.  Seems too complicated and overwhelming for her to even look into (and this is a woman who was tops in her class and aced anatomy, biology, etc etc.

Same here. My wife is a nurse, artistic and an artist. Creates slides, does powerpoint presentations etc. Also can program and repair computers.

Her opinion of both Libronix 3 and Logos 4 has NOTHING to do with the wide variety of resources (and yes she had her own subscription and copy etc which she finally scrubbed from the computer)

And as she "has a life" and is not a "geek" she has NO time for Videos or "Morris" etc.

As for Biblia.com, don't even ask...you don't want to go  there...

Oh well

Regards, SteveF

I hope that we do not hear the same sexist statements made here like what is being posted on Facebook.

This is a very valid question that I believe only women can answer.  

I find those comments very very sexist.

My wife feels the same way. She's perfectly competent with computers, and uses Adobe Premiere, which I won't even go near. But Logos doesn't seem to make sense to her. She could learn it, if she took the time, but she finds it a lot quicker to ask me to get something done for her whenever she needs it. Smile

It's interesting that we seem to be going against the trend. I am the Logos user in our family while my husband prefers paper based books and Bibles for studying.

Blessings to all

Unfortunately, I wouldn't even be that kind. I'd call it totally counter-intuitive. At least for someone like me who's always been on Mac. I don't know what it's like if you're used to the Windows way of doing things.

I do not believe it is a windows/mac thing.  I have said more than once, "I do not know what this is telling me."  I have read some Logos power users postings say, "it is unusual behavior" and "It is not intuitive at all."  How many times has it been said that Logos has a huge learning curve?

All of the ladies that I know who are ordained and use computer software with their study use Bible Works.  Why is this? Is it the cost?  Is it the UI?  The next time I see one of them I am going to ask because I am now curious.

Maybe we are all being a little myopic. Truth be known, there are probably as many different types of women users/non-users as there are men. To announce a single reason why some women don't use Logos is like Mattell marketing the mathematically challenged Barbie doll.

My wife and I are both in seminary (actually I just finished my last class). When there is a required book I am disappointed if it isn't available in LOGOS. My wife will order a hard copy, even if we already own it in LOGOS. Sad

It would be interesting to see the actual stats for users of other Bible software programs. Most of the Bible Works users I know are men, but where I went to seminary the platform that gets pushed most is Accordance. 

My personal feeling is that Logos is the best of the lot in terms of breadth and depth of resources offered, but having started with Libronix/L3, I know my wife didn't like the usability of it. She does use my Logos 4 more now, and likes it a lot more. She still asks me a lot of questions about how to use it, but then again she hasn't fiddled around with the program nearly as much as I have.

I actually find Logos 4 highly intuitive. When I want to do something, it usually turns out that the way I think it can be done is the way it can be done.

this is descending into a touchy theological discussion that is not conducive to the Logos forum policies or medium

 

Or perhaps, ascending into a touchy theological discussion?

And as she "has a life" and is not a "geek"

Huh?   Geeks have lives. Geeked I have been known to sit in bed with my laptop for days on end. Now if that isn't the "life of Reily" I don't know what would be.

 

Did you know Logos can read you to sleep?
