Boxes and Arrows contest results

A few months ago I entered the Boxes and Arrows website redesign contest. Each entry consisted of an home page, an article page, and a search results page. You can view mine at the end of the entry.

The results of the contest were released today. Sadly, I didn't win, but it was enjoyable to be a part of the contest and to try to help out the Boxes and Arrows editors who do their work essentially for free.

The winner of the contest does make good use of color and heirarchy. The cleanliness of the design is also a plus. So long as the site isn't fixed width, I'll be happy. :)

Congrats to Alex Chang of

Below is the design I entered in the B&A contest:

In Memoriam

did you ever find that friend you sought?
the one you looked for in all of us?
the one I always hid from you
   and gave to others?
did you find that friend?
did it cost you more clothes?
another iMac?
   or something greater?
matt, rory, friend,
forgive me for keeping love from you
for guarding it in the tomb of my mind
  to keep for another less grateful:

Firefox 1.0 - Here at last!

Firefox 1.0 is available now! All those who have been waiting for this major, now is the time.

You may find that is running a bit slow. I guess I'm not the only one who's be counting down the days. :)

Thunderbird 0.9

Mozilla Thunderbird 0.9 was quietly released a few days ago. There seem to be some promising features. Message grouping and saved search folders look particularly promising.

I've just installed it, and everything went smoothly. They've also addes RSS feature which might be fun.

If you're still using Outlook and living in fear of viruses, I highly recommend switching to Thunderbird.

Entire Sanctification?

Maybe someone can help me understand this quote from "The Disciplined Life" by Richard S. Taylor:

"Bu the Corinthians, though truly converted, were still eak; they were far from the strength of mature, disciplined character. In fact they did not posses even the minimal foundation of entire sanctification."

Entire sanctification? Is sanctification ever complete on this earth? Can it really be attained? If it can, is it minimal? Maybe he's using the term differently...

If any one can help clarify this, I'd be grateful.
