So if I appear to be a little ***, it is because 30+ years of 100% success tends to give one confidence!

Failures are often better teachers than successes.  imho

Didn't a wise man once say, "if you have never failed it is because you did not try hard enough?"  hmm.. maybe they were wrong, but it certainly does show there are at least two sides to the coin...

Let me get this strait; you all go to work everyday expecting to fail?

Just because I have delivered 100% on every SW project I have worked on for the past 30+ years does not mean I have not experienced failure; as a matter of fact, I use mathematics to analyse the requirments of the job before I even agree to do it; relevance, I know it can be completed and I know how long it will take because my methodology works.

Do I fail as I am writing the code or doing the analysis, yes I do; though, it does not effect the outcome of the project because I build failures into the schedule.

This is kind of funny because I believe the only way you can increase your success rate is to increase your failure rate; I try hard and often and am willing to fail time and time again until I get it right and on schedule Wink

Ken,

For the record can I just say I respect the knowledge you bring to this discussion. My programming goes no further then my pathetic Office VBA code, which any true programmer would look at as the scribbled picture of a child, pat me on the head, and say "that's nice dear."  While I can get it to do what I want to to do, It ain't pretty :-)

Thanks for bringing your experiences, knowledge, and opinions to the forum.

Thomas, you can find some prepackaged compassion here... just not sermons. :-)

 

Oh my goodness.  I thought the link was satirical - until I clicked on the link to the Logos web product.  I can see purchasing membership tools, including form letters, to announce a building campaign or a fall sermon series, but Condolence Letters?!? 

Ick.

If this sort of thing continues, we're soon going to see the unveiling of "Pastor-in-a-Box" software v.1.0.  Pick up one of these http://www.hymntechnology.com/  and you eliminate the musicians, too.

Pretty soon, the only people that will need to show up at services are the congregation - and eventually they'll start connecting remotely too.  A true virtual church.

This borders on creepy, IMHO.

In rural churches that are only served by volunteer lay-pastors this might be a welcome tool. In many mission churches in Japan they use a digital hymnal because they lack a musician. You just punch in the hymn number and how many verses to play. It is better than nothing.

We already have that too in OKC.  One such church meets in several states and at "satellite" locations. Shut-ins can still attend church. It isn't really any more creepy than all of us on the forum; sharing, admonishing, teaching.

Just barely better than nothing. Attended a Church here in the States that (temporarily) uses one of those. Even someone as musically illiterate as I am felt the pain of that experience. However, as you say, it was better than nothing.

BTW I am also having a problem with the Title bar being black instead of the normal windows color. This is a bug and it is known and hopefully will be fixed.

Kevin,

I've NEVER had that issue with my install of Win 7 UNTIL today.

I updated my direct X to version 11 and it began.

I'm not saying that it's your problem, but it could be related.

I do have DX11. Could it be that Logos?

I agree with you. No on is being forced to buy Logos 4.  I am amazed at what Logos 4 is able to do.  Try to do a word study by the old book mode and see how long it will take.

not trying to hijack this already hijacked thread but....

Kevin...

Can you tell me if this is what you see?

 

Just wondering...because it's a normal tool bar with the gamma adjustment in the video card turned down too low

No. Thiat's close. But here is what I'm seeing.

Notice how there are no icons in the upper right corner.

Just FYI for troubleshooting, I have DirectX 11 and Win7 64bit and do not have a black bar.
