I am a web developer, family guy, singing fool. As my title says, so many websites, so little to say.
This is the story of how I got started learning about the deaf community http://deafpundit.wordpress.com/2007/05/05/subtitling-moviesvlogs/

A young violinist was giving a concert one day
in front of a large crowd. He ended his concert
with a flourish, and all the people stood up and
applauded, shouting, “Bravo! Bravo! What a
performance!” But the young man put his head
down. As the people continued to clap, his eyes
began to fill with tears. There was no smile on
All of a sudden as the applause began to die, an
old man sitting up in the balcony stood up and
began to clap. As soon as the violinist saw that, a
smile came across his face. He wiped the tears
from his eyes. He smiled and held up his violin
and walked off the stage.
A man in the wings said, “Why were you were
sad when the people stood up, but when that old
man stood up, you became glad again?”
“Because the old man was my violin teacher,”
the young musician explained, “and unless he
stood up, my concert would have been a failure,
because he is the only one who knows exactly
how each piece is supposed to be played. It does
not matter whether the people stand and
applaud . . . “
My friend, unless God is standing and
applauding, we really haven’t done anything.
Don’t be fooled by people’s applause. Make sure
that Jesus Christ says…
“Well done, good and faithful servant.”
You can catch me singing on the internet, sometimes in the choir (look for the mouth wide open in the second row tenors), sometimes on the praise team (ditto on stage), at http://calvary-church.net, look for the listen live on Sundays.
A favorite song by Keith Green says a lot.
