Have you ever had the need to get to the task manager on Windows XP, Vista, or 7?
One way to get to task manager, is to press CTL+ALT+DELETE (make sure that you hold down the previous keys that you press) on your keyboard and click on the button that has Task Manager on it.
Another way to get to the Task Manager for Windows 7 users (not sure about Vista or XP), is to right-click on the task-bar and click “Task Manager”.
Hope this helps somebody!

“1 In the beginning God
created the heavens
and the earth.
2 The earth was barren,
with no form of life;
it was under a roaring ocean
covered with darkness.
But the Spirit of God
was moving over the water.
The First Day
3 God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining. 4 God looked at the light and saw that it was good. He separated light from darkness 5 and named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Evening came and then morning—that was the first day.” – Genesis 1:1-5 CEV
“6 God said, “I command a dome to separate the water above it from the water below it.” 7 And that’s what happened. God made the dome 8 and named it “Sky.” Evening came and then morning—that was the second day.” – Genesis 1:6-8 CEV
“9 God said, “I command the water under the sky to come together in one place, so there will be dry ground.” And that’s what happened. 10 God named the dry ground “Land,” and he named the water “Ocean.” God looked at what he had done and saw that it was good.
11 God said, “I command the earth to produce all kinds of plants, including fruit trees and grain.” And that’s what happened. 12 The earth produced all kinds of vegetation. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 13 Evening came and then morning—that was the third day.” – Genesis 1:9-13 CEV
“14 God said, “I command lights to appear in the sky and to separate day from night and to show the time for seasons, special days, and years. 15 I command them to shine on the earth.” And that’s what happened. 16 God made two powerful lights, the brighter one to rule the day and the other to rule the night. He also made the stars. 17 Then God put these lights in the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to rule day and night, and to separate light from darkness. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 19 Evening came and then morning—that was the fourth day.” – Genesis 1:14-19 CEV
“20 God said, “I command the ocean to be full of living creatures, and I command birds to fly above the earth.” 21 So God made the giant sea monsters and all the living creatures that swim in the ocean. He also made every kind of bird. God looked at what he had done, and it was good. 22 Then he gave the living creatures his blessing—he told the ocean creatures to live everywhere in the ocean and the birds to live everywhere on earth. 23 Evening came and then morning—that was the fifth day.” – Genesis 1:20-23 CEV
“24 God said, “I command the earth to give life to all kinds of tame animals, wild animals, and reptiles.” And that’s what happened. 25 God made every one of them. Then he looked at what he had done, and it was good.
26 God said, “Now we will make humans, and they will be like us. We will let them rule the fish, the birds, and all other living creatures.”
27 So God created humans to be like himself; he made men and women. 28 God gave them his blessing and said:
Have a lot of children! Fill the earth with people and bring it under your control. Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds in the sky, and every animal on the earth.
29 I have provided all kinds of fruit and grain for you to eat. 30 And I have given the green plants as food for everything else that breathes. These will be food for animals, both wild and tame, and for birds.
31 God looked at what he had done. All of it was very good! Evening came and then morning—that was the sixth day.” – Genesis 1:24-31 CEV
No one has any excuse, whatsoever, for not believing in Jesus Christ. He shows Himself through His creation. No one can honestly deny this fact.
“God’s eternal power and character cannot be seen. But from the beginning of creation, God has shown what these are like by all he has made. That’s why those people don’t have any excuse.” – Romans 1:20 CEV

I have used FPS Creator, off and on, for years. It is a neat program for people who want to make FPS (First-Person Shooter) style games. While FPS Creator is not perfect, and it does not blow your socks off, it is handy for people who like making games.
Stability is important when creating video games. You do not want a game making system that crashes on you ever five minutes. FPS Creator is pretty stable except for a few instances when it would just randomly crash (like when building the finished game), or you do a CRL+ALT+DEL on your keyboard and it semi-crashes on you. However, for what FPS Creator gives you (which I will discuss later) it is certainly worth putting up with, if you are determined to make a video game with little experience.
FPS Creator gives you the user a lot of control over your video game. While it does not give everything and the kitchen sink, it does include support for shaders, multiplayer, adding your own media (very important), story zone (plays a video), win zone (finishes the level), sound zone (with a script that allows for 3D sound), lights, etc.
Ease of Use
FPS Creator is very easy to use. You literally paint your levels on the screen! When is the last time you heard of that? A person with little to no experience could potentially have a whole level completed within a few hours. Most game making systems, the user would have to speed several weeks (even months) to just make a half-decent game that people would purchase.
The current price for FPS Creator (at the time of this blog post) is $49.99. That is not bad, considering the ease of use and features you get. There is even a demo you can download.
FPS Creator is not for everyone. Check it out and decide for yourself.
Unfortunately, the product FPS Creator was discontinued. However is was open-sourced a couple of years ago. You can get the source code here: https://github.com/TheGameCreators/FPS-Creator-Classic

People for years have said that there are more than one way to get to Heaven. The fact is, the only way to get to God the Father (which, of course, will get you to Heaven) is by asking Jesus Christ to save you from your sins.
The Bible says: “I am the way, the truth, and the life!’ Jesus answered. ‘Without me, no one can go to the Father.” – John 14:6 – CEV
Jesus Christ loves you so much, that he died on the cross to take the punishment for your sins. All you have to do is accept His free gift of salvation.
If you are looking for a purpose in life, someone to love you, and eternal security, Jesus is the ONLY way to get any of those.
“God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die.” – John 3:16 – CEV
To have your sins forgiven and for God to come into your life and accept you into Heaven, you must confess with your mouth and really and truly believe in your heart that Jesus came to earth, died on a cross, and was raised to life on the third day.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9 – CEV
