I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

@JeffreyBosboom Then rather than hijacking a mechanism to stand in for it, maybe the solution would be to make the existing correct feature more visible. (Also my experience is that new users do tend to read those messages as they show up in their inbox. They are confused about what to do about it because the edit history is a new interface for them, but they often figure it out. Reviewers is another problem, they have issues!)

comment Why does god harden the Pharaoh's heart in Exodus?
This is really more of a doctrinal question than a textual one. Unless your question is "does the text really say this", it quickly gets into a realm of theology that only a doctrinal framework can reasonably address, and that's generally beyond the scope of this site. On the other hand it would be fair to ask this on [christianity.se] instead, but only with the inclusion of a specific theological tradition which will limit the scope of answers to how that tradition deals with the issue.

comment How do modalists understand the role of Jesus as mediator?
@ fredsbend Actually we're up to 7 deleted answers on this post (some by owner, some by mods). That's why Community ♦ marked it as protected. It's going to take some actual expertise to answer, not just people spouting ideas.

comment How can I use the RDP client when logged in as Guest
@JackDouglas If all you're doing is RDP, why not setup a Linux image that boots straight to an RDP client? (Caveat: I use RDP all the time, but only for very specialty purposes and don't know if the Linux clients hold up in production.)

You just installed Vista? I'm sorry. 7 really is a lot better. It's at least a proper implementation of what they started to throw together in Vista. I can't say I'm a fan of 8, but Vista is the new Me.

comment A script that relinks double duplicates
@ShadowWizard Not saying your wrong, but off the top of my head I can't think of any. In what situation is this sort of duplicate chain ever better than pointing directly to an open question?
