My Friend Mike’s Miracle

God Running

miracle prayer

Last post we talked about one reason God was so responsive to Jesus’ prayers was because he loved God so much. And because he loved God so much, Jesus was always seeking to give Him glory. If you’re interested you can check it out here: The One Thing You Can Do To Give Life To Your Prayers

Well Monday, two days after that post I received a text from my friend Mark. He and another friend Mike host a podcast called Solomon’s Porch Radio. And Mark’s text said,

“Hey Kurt …..let everyone know to be praying for Mike….he had a heart attack. ..and just went in for surgery.”

So I just arrived home from Portland late the night before and I missed that text. But another friend, Luke Salyer, sent me a DM on Twitter about it, so I called Mark and asked him to keep me up to speed…

HP is trying to patent Continuous Delivery – here is how you can help block this madness

Matthew Skelton

Summary: Hewlett-Packard (HP) has filed several patents covering standard Continuous Delivery (CD) practices. You can help to have these patents revoked by providing ‘prior art’ examples on Stack Exchange.

On 1st March 2015 I discovered that in 2012 HP had filed a patent (WO2014027990) with the USPO for ‘Performance tests in a continuous deployment pipeline‘ (the patent was granted published in 2014). The exact search I used was https://www.google.co.uk/webhp?q=performance+testing++in+a+pipeline and the patent grabbed my attention almost immediately as it was around the 5th result (as I write this, it still is):

Search results for performance testing in a pipeline

I immediately tweeted and @-mentioned Jez Humble (@jezhumble) and Dave Farley (@davefarley77), co-authors of the foundational book Continuous Delivery, to alert them (their book was published in 2010, two years before the HP patents were filed).

My Year Of Stripping

Finally Free

SAMSUNG CSCCan a woman in ministry experience a year of stripping? Should she even say such a thing or talk about a subject so controversial? As I sit here at my computer during the month of March 2015, I can without a doubt say, Yes, 2014 was my year of stripping. I’m sure I’ll get a few choice comments about this like I do every blog I’ve written about the Stripped Free Ministry and going into the strip clubs in Indianapolis to minister to the women there, but I hope you’ll continue to read on to make a very important discovery with me. I had no idea when Stripped Free launched back in April of 2014 that God was not only going to do a work in the lives of the women in the clubs we were going to meet, but He was going to do the biggest work in…
