With my attachment you can view Him in my 4th period class as i have advertised him by drawing him on the board. My teacher was very kind to it, and today when i came to class i realized someone had erased it so i re-drew Him. I am going to begin sending out flyers and have currently converted one serious member to His greatness.
please get back to me. RAmen. –Matt

Jolly Roger Banned

Published June 8th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

flag_jolly_sm.jpg

Some neighborhood council in Hampshire banned a man from flying the Jolly Roger at his son’s birthday party.

The article doesn’t mention if he was a Pastafarian, but I would not be surprised. I doubt this was an issue of religious discrimination, more likely just an uptight council. It sounds like he’ll get permission to fly the flag after filing for some permits, but if not, I suggest that he plays the religious discrimination card.

The article is here.

(some) Religious leaders testify in Senate on Global Warming

Published June 7th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

From Reuters:

Several religious leaders — Episcopal, Catholic, Jewish and evangelical Christian — agreed on Thursday on the need to confront global warming, while other faith representatives questioned the climate change threat.

I’m a little annoyed that no one thought to ask for OUR opinion on this. Pastarians had a view on Global Warming long before it became trendy. And OUR theory is backed by hard science. And a statistically significant graph, which, by the way, has been printed in more than a couple textbooks now.

Anyway, you can read the article here.

Stolen Laptop tracker

Published June 5th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

This is a free service for Pastafarians:

Register your laptop here. You’ll be given a unique “home page” address for your internet browser. When you connect to the internet, your IP address will be recorded, and then you’ll be redirected to google.

In the event that your laptop is stolen, report it to the police, and then email me. If the thief connects to the internet, we’ll have their approximate location, and their current Internet Service Provider. There’s a decent chance of getting your laptop back.

It’s still in experimental stage but it’s fully functional. I wish I made this a couple weeks ago (before my laptop was stolen).

Anyways, try it out here. Let me know what you think.

More on the server issues

Published June 5th, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

Things are still broken, I’m sorry. They’ll be fixed soon. Here’s what happened:

The Church of the FSM site lives on a dedicated server, hosted by one of the largest hosting companies in the US. We get a lot of traffic, and the site runs off database-driven dynamic publishing engine (nerds, read: wordpress/mysql). Whenever we are linked by a site like digg or reddit or boingboing, the server goes down. We were stable unless traffic was unusually high. We upgraded memory and tweaked the settings. That helped but didn’t fix the problems, the server still went down a couple times a month.

We reprovisioned the server, installed a newer OS, moved to a faster machine, but it’s not enough. We’re still bogged down.

So, we’re moving to a new hosting company that has built for us a very powerful server. We’re making the switch today or tomorrow and then things should be finally stable.

Thank you for bearing with me.

The 4-Hour Workweek

Published May 22nd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

4hourworkweek.jpg

I just read this book titled The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. It’s by far the best business/productivity book I’ve ever read. It’s all about cutting out the garbage that robs your time, and pursuing the things that matter.

I think maybe I liked it so much because I’ve been trying to avoid a “real job” so hard for the last couple years.

There’s a lot of really important, counter-intuitive ideas laid out in this book. Like, for instance: Busyness is a form of laziness to avoid doing the important things you need to do. I have days where I check my email 10+ times a day, and get nothing done.

If you’re interested in this kind of stuff, and I suspect a lot of Pastafarians are, check out Tim’s blog here. Or go buy the book here.
