May 21, 2011 On What Calendar?
FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2011
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
After Pastor Hammack mentioned Harold Camping put many of his books on his web site, I took a look at them. I can't comment on Camping's theological bona fides, but he seems to be confused about the calendar. I am surprised that none of his...

Alex Jones, Chemtrails, and Colloidal Silver
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2011
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..

My New Web Site!
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 08, 2011
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
I have revamped my web site to bring it into the modern "Web 2.0" look of CSS (cascading style sheets). I've given it a new professional-looking color scheme. It's much simpler than the old site and loads faster. Considering I'm not a graphic...

Apple's Success-Quality products
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Why is Apple so successful, even during an economic crisis? I think the #1 reason, and one that many pundits overlook, is that they make quality products. Laptops, MP3 players, etc. are so low-quality these days that they're little more than...

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2010
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
News from the UK: All Internet users are going to have to pay one-quarter of the bill to the big media companies as they try to stop people from sharing big media's content. This is all but a tax on Internet users, and the proceeds are going to...
