Going to Church Regularly

Have you, as a Christian, woken up one Sunday and thought that you would skip church just for one day?

Have you stopped going to church regularly?

Did you know that the Bible talks about not avoiding getting together with other believers? The Bible says: “Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.” – Hebrews 10:25 CEV

So remember, as a Christian, skipping church for just one day, or just plain not going to church anymore is not only not good for you, but is what God says not to do.

Loving People

I’m sure just about everyone on this Earth has heard the word love before. However, do you know that people today have different meanings of the word love?

One example is someone saying “Wow! I love that XBOX 360!” or “I love chocolate-chip cookies!”, but do you know that this is not real love?

Real love is when you actually want to take care of someone, will not talk bad about someone, forgiving others for their wrongs against you, not holding grudges against others for wrongs they might have done to you, etc.

The Bible very clearly says that if you do not have love (true love, that is), you are pretty much wasting your time.

“What if I could speak
all languages
of humans
    and of angels?
If I did not love others,
    I would be nothing more
than a noisy gong
    or a clanging cymbal.
What if I could prophesy
and understand all secrets
    and all knowledge?
And what if I had faith
    that moved mountains?
I would be nothing,
    unless I loved others.
What if I gave away all
    that I owned
and let myself
    be burned alive?
I would gain nothing,
    unless I loved others.
Love is kind and patient,
never jealous, boastful,
    proud, or rude.
Love isn’t selfish
    or quick tempered.
It doesn’t keep a record
    of wrongs that others do.
Love rejoices in the truth,
    but not in evil.
Love is always supportive,
loyal, hopeful,
    and trusting.
Love never fails!” – 1 Corinthians 13:1-8 CEV

Remember to truly love others, just as Jesus Christ truly loves everyone!

Video Card – Memory Bus Width

When you buy a video card, have you ever considered looking at the video card’s memory bus width? Did you know that a video card with a higher memory bus width can draw faster to the screen (of course, assuming that your monitor has a high enough refresh rate :-]  )

Let’s say you buy a video card that has 1 GB of on-board memory and has a 900 MHz core clock. However, the video card only has a 64-bit memory bus width. Your cost for your video card is: $250.00

Now your friend across the street bought a video card that has 768 MB of on-board memory, and it has a 750 MHz core clock. Now his video card has a 256-bit memory bus width. Your friend’s cost for his video card: $180.00

Now which of the two video cards would be the best for your money?

While the one you bought looks “better”, in reality, the video card that your friend bought is the better choice because of the higher memory bus width (this is assuming that both video cards have the same type of video memory). Hence his video card will draw faster to the screen than yours would.

Always be careful when buying a new video card. You may end up spending a lot of money for something that is supposed to be “better” but really is not!
