  • Re: Custom content on the Home Page

    It's funny you mentioned Microsoft since I used to work there. And that opened my eyes to what goes into making seemingly simple decisions. I was stunned at how many different people and product teams (both inside and outside the company) had input into our software decisions. (I was on the Windows team.) I don't disagree that there are times where

    > You get my point. Well, I get that you're passionate about this and want to see it. And I respect that. But I don't believe anything you've said would make a strong enough business case for this. You're creating a lot of "perfect" scenarios about how things would happen, and "sophisticated" users. And, yeah, if it worked like that at least 90+% of

  • Re: Custom content on the Home Page

    I agree with M.J. Logos already takes shots for slow loading of the home page. Allowing third-party content is just asking for trouble, either in load time, or when those links change and you're getting error messages on your home page because a link is broken or changed. And strictly from a business perspective, I'm not sure why Logos would allow other

  • Re: The Future of Logos for the Mac User?

    I appreciate the links to the logging procedures, Jack. It confirms what I thought I had remembered... a process that is longer than it should be. It takes about 15 steps to report a problem when it should only take two or three. And these steps don't even guarantee anything since you have to hope your problem is one that can be recreated each time

  • Re: The Future of Logos for the Mac User?

    My experience since switching to a Mac is the opposite... for the most part they're very good about feedback and sending in logs, at least with the software I use a lot. But I wonder if that's where a problem is. I use Adobe products for my work and when something goes wrong, I get an automatic pop-up to send a log or crash file. I don't have to dig

  • Re: Bible Study Magazine

    Beyond archive issues one day, I've given up thinking we'll ever get current issues within Logos. The lack of BSM in Logos used to bother me (plus the silence from Logos on why this hasn't happened despite saying it would.) My guess is that digital editions would not include ads. And without ads, the magazine (and most magazines for that matter) would

  • Re: Exclusive Benefits For High Resource Customers

    Overall, I'd say no. It's a nice thought that if you buy X amount, you get more benefits. There's even a certain logic to it. But there's usually a bigger risk by the people who bought X minus some small amount who feel that the amount they have spent entitles them to all the bonuses. Those people start to complain and don't take kindly to being told

  • Discipleship Journal question

    I had never heard of this magazine until a few days ago. ( https://www.logos.com/product/8581/discipleship-journal-anthology ) I'm intrigued by the magazine, but since it's not published any more, I can't find any samples of the magazine. Even NavPress has pretty much scrubbed it from their site. And, sadly, the Logos link doesn't include any sample

  • Re: My students don't know what carbon paper is.

    What I learned through buying the same music first through an LP or 8-track, then a cassette, then a CD, then a digital download is that it's the content that's important, not the platform it's delivered on because the platform will change. I was thrilled with 90-minute cassettes because I could make a great mix tape that might have held about 20 or

  • Re: Any recommendation of any sort for studying the book of James

    I'm doing a study of James as well, with a plan to teach it later this year. I picked up a number of Logos books on James late last year, but have only read through one so far. One of the most enjoyable resources I've found is the free videos through Sacra Script: http://vimeo.com/sacrascript The guy covers a number of books, including James, and goes

    I grew up listening to Wiersbe. I like that plan and may use it myself one year.

  • Re: Plan A or Plan B 2014?

    My plan is to spend more time in certain areas or books rather than a more traditional plan of jumping around the Bible or even a read-it-in-one-year plan. Nothing wrong with that at all. I'm just wanting something else. Later this year, I may teach on James. So it's interesting you should ask this question as I'm, at this moment, setting up a layout

    My daughter (11) has done some of the Kay Arthur Inductive Bible Study books for kids. I know they Daniel as part of that series although it's not one we've bought yet.

    I might have been tempted on a couple of the items, but neither had previews of any kind which surprised me. Before I unleash the credit card, I want to have a look at some of the actual content of the books. And I must have been confused about some items in a Wish List getting a discount. Don't see any on my list indicating a discount. I guess it has

  • Re: Is Logos 5 Mavericks Ready?

    No initial problems, but I just installed Mavericks and now I'm updating Logos 5 on my laptop. Haven't run Logos 5 there for a while, so it's downloading about a gig of info. At least it opens without a problem. The trouble is, as anyone here can probably attest, one person having or not having a problem isn't a perfect indication of what others will

  • Other resources with slides like Studies in Faithful Living series?

    Teaching from this series ( https://www.logos.com/product/31438/studies-in-faithful-living-patriarchs-collection and the Mary book), I enjoy having the ready-made slides. It's a nice addition for people who prefer to take in info visually. Are there other Logos products like this that come with slides? I could make my own basic slides (and have with

  • Re: Do Update In The Background!

    Auto-update in iOS7 was the first thing I ensured was turned OFF. Can't tell you how many times an app developer got sloppy and uploaded an update that had serious bugs. (Kindle and Evernote come to mind.) While I love the idea of auto-updating, I can't run the risk with apps that I depend on. I've found it wiser to monitor things for a couple of days

  • Re: Is Logos 5 Mac Slowing Down

    I'm actually working in Logos (Mac) right now and had such an annoying slowdown, I had to Force Quit and restart. For me, it tends to happen when I'm using the Right/Left arrow keys to cycle through resources such as commentaries. My guess is that as I cycle through resources in the same windows, it keeps them open even if I've moved on to another.
