Website Update - NRSV Bible Chapter Listing

BibleI've put a new page on the static portion of tihs site - Bible Verse Listing - New Revised Standard Version. It provides links to all the chapters on the NRSV hosted by the Oremus Bible Browser. The Oremus Bible Browswer is a very useful site that presents the NRSV in a very readable format. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the easiest navigation. I'd found a few sites that had provided links to the different chapters, such as GodWeb. However, none of those sites that I found included the Apocrypha in their listing. BibleStudyTools.com also has the NRSV, but their formatting isn't as readable as Oremus, and they don't have the Apocrypha, either (though that site does have some really handy tools). So, I took it on myself to create a listing that lists all of the books of the Bible. I checked it fairly thoroughly, but not every link. If you find any problems, please let me know. Otherwise, I hope this is useful for people wanting to read the NRSV.

There are other translations of the Bible available. BibleGateway.com has many of them available, and their navigation is superb. But they don't have the NRSV, and for a variety of reasons, that's the translation I prefer to read. For a discussion of why, read my entry, Friday Bible Blogging - Introduction and Picking a Translation.

Website Update - Top 10 Page List for February 2013

Top 10 ListI'm a little late getting to this this month, but now that February's over, it's time to look at the server logs and see how things went on the site last month.

Most of the pages that made the list had been on there before. In fact, most made it to the list last month, in nearly the same positions. However, there were two surprises. One blog entry, Texas Board of Education in NY Times Magazine, had only made the list a handful of times in the past. An another blog entry, Email Debunking - 1895 8th Grade Final Exam made the list for the first time ever.

Here were the top 10 most popular pages on this site last month.

  1. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  2. Autogyro History & Theory
  3. Blog - Response to an Editorial by Ken Huber

Website Update - Top 10 Page List for January 2013

Top 10 ListThe first month of the new year is over, so it's time for me to check the server logs to see how things went on this website. My Autogyro History & Theory page got a bit more traffic than normal, keeping it ahead of the MBT Shoes blog entry which also got a bit more traffic than normal. Every page that made the list had made it before, but one of them, Rotorcraft Speed Limitations, had only made it one time previously way back in December of 2007.

Overall traffic has been steadily increasing since August of last year, when the site had lower traffic than any month from the previous two years. It's now back into the range consistent with what it's been for the past couple years.

Here were the top 10 most popular pages on this site last month.

Website Update - Reorganized 'God- or Gorilla?' Entries

God or Gorilla PicWhen I first posted the entries in my 'God - or Gorilla?' series, I posted them in both my Books and Skepticism, Religion categories. But just playing around and looking over my site, I realize that the 'God- or Gorilla?' posts kind of clutter those categories if you're just wanting to browse. So, I decided to make a subcategory under books called God - Or Gorilla?, and to move all of those posts into that new category. I left the first post in the 'Books' and 'Skepticism, Religion' categories so that people browsing through those will at least know of the existence of this series. So, if you're really interested in the 'God- or Gorilla?' posts, you can now find them all in one place. And if you don't like them all that much, you don't have to wade through them when reading the other entries.

Website Update - Top 10 Page List for December 2012

Top 10 ListI'm back. I realize it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything, but what with the holidays and then getting hit hard with the flu, I just haven't had time. Anyway, I'm feeling better now, and I'm back into the normal routine of things, so expect new blog posts to be forthcoming. I should be back on track with the Friday Bible Blogging this week, too.

Since December's over, it's time to look through the server logs and see what pages were most popular on the site. There were no only two small surprises. The blog entry, Response to an Editorial by Ken Huber, made it to the top spot for the first time. And another blog entry, Book Review - God- or Gorilla?, Appendices, Part II (And the End of The Book), made it to the list for the first time. In fact, that's the first of any of the installments from my God- or Gorilla? series to make it onto the top 10 list.

So, without further ado, here were the top 10 most popular pages on this site last month.
