I saw this new release over the weekend, and the only disappointment I had was in the small number of people who were there. This is worth seeing, and you really should go see it soon because it probably won’t be around long. I am a scientist by training, and it has always bugged me that ‘scientists’ neglect their own rules when it comes to Intelligent Design.

I’m proud to announce that the programmers have churned out yet another update to the Covenant Eyes Accountability and Filtering Software! This time a mere month has passed since the release of 4.2.8, so we’re just going to call this release 4.2.8a . . . since, I mean, come on. It’s a month. It doesn’t deserve it’s own number.
