  • Re: Pre order: (ASOR) The Biblical Archaeologist/Near Eastern Archaeology

    the answer i received when contacting sales was only a very canned response that, no, the prepub price is the best price available, and will go up in the future... followed by a very lengthy generic, canned spiel that the rep would be happy to put together a bundle of resources for me at a great (according to him) discount. i'm becoming very disillusioned

  • Re: Andrews Collection

    My concerns are not theological... they have to do more with scholarship. Basically, the works are self-published and self-promoted over a very short period of time by a student who really is not a specialist in the areas that he is writing about (for instance, he is not a paleographer). There are no endorsements of his work by any scholars or professors

  • Andrews Collection

    I debated alot about whether to write this and what to include. I eventually decided that I should post something as a heads up to encourage folks to study a bit before purchasing these materials. I have a bunch of prepubs coming online all at once (I heard that Logos has hired a number of folks to speed up pre-pub production. It seems to be working

  • Re: Am I blind? The little Archaeology Bundle has the goodies!

    CORRECTION... I now note in my first post above, in which I gave my opinions of the various bundle levels, that I made a typo... just to clarify... the LARGE bundle seemed pricey to me, not the medium. I think the medium (and small) are really good deals. The titles in the large bundle tend to be of the minimalist school, and in any case are quite expensive

  • Re: Am I blind? The little Archaeology Bundle has the goodies!

    Denise, are you refering to the Yehud demographics title? That sounds like what you mean... and if I recall correctly that is the the XL bundle. A good title if you're interested in such a thing. The urban title I was referring to was the one in the M bundle... I didn't have much interest in that for the most part, and that is the title I referred to

  • Re: Am I blind? The little Archaeology Bundle has the goodies!

    Denise, you are quite right... IMHO, these are the premiere titles being offered among Logos' sales this year.... the real "treasures". I have also wanted the titles you mentioned for a long time, but they were locked up in the bundle that was crazy expensive. Having them released from imprisonment in the small archaeology bundle was a real Christmas

    Okay, wanted to jump in on this fun thread! I'm originally from USA (OH, KY, NM, PA and FL) but have been in gByEkLpAhRvUcS for about 7 years.

    Just as a follow up to clarify my last post... in any event, those of us who feel that way aren't saying that others have to feel the same or agree with us. If this form of community blesses you and you want to engage in it, then God bless you! I just as strongly advocate your right and opportunity to avail yourself of it if you so choose. Those of

    [quote user="Patrick S."] Also, with respect to where information is anonymised, if it is, is it anonymised on the Logos user's machine or once it gets to Logos' servers? Also Logos needs to be very careful with its' privacy position with regards European users. The European Union is not as lax as the US with respect to various aspects of computers

    Hi again Jon! It does seem like the user interface for the Little Snitch is fairly user friendly. I don't know what teh various button options represent in practice on your screen shot, but it looks like I can learn! :-) I was curious on your original screen shot, though, as it seemed like you were able to be more selective on what TYPES of data Logos

    Jon, I checked out the site for the software you recommended. Looks promising. To be honest, though, I'm like most here probably in that I'm not tremendously computer savy in this area... and I need to be. The screen shot is helpful... but how difficult is this for a knucklehead user like myself? I start seeing port numbers and such and my eyes start
