How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I was raised by Witness parents, stumbled a bit, hit my rock bottom, finally came to understand that Jehovah never caused my pain.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I am a religious Cat-holic*. (Addicted to all things feline. Thanks, Toxoplasmosis!)
    Some of my favorite things include computers, technology, gaming, pixel and line art, storytelling, tiny homes, and the inconceivably vast cosmic universe.
  • My favorite books
    I particularly enjoy campy, humorous and satirical writing, comics such as Calvin and Hobbes are my favorite. Your typical Sci-fi/Space Opera fare: Dr Who, Hitchhiker's Guide, Star Trek, Star Wars, War of the Worlds. I'm also partial to stories of tragedy and hope about common people, Ruth is my favorite book in the scriptures. Aside from the Bible, I haven't read any physical books in many years. I don't have the focus or patience anymore, so audiobooks if at all.
  • My favorite music
    Background music, scores and soundtracks, especially classic video game composers. More traditional styles I prefer are alternative, ambient, downtempo, epic orchestral, techno, and world music. Kingdom dirges, Blue Man Group, John Williams, Jake Kaufman, Manami Matsumae, Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Kanno.
  • My favorite movies
    Humor, tragedy, and science fiction. The Princess Bride, Cast Away, Jurassic Park, Star Wars.
  • My favorite quotes
    "In this world, you have two choices. You can either be insane, or /choose/ to be insane." - Myew
    "Yes, I am just a little broken." "As you wish."

  1. At this screen, is it saying "No command"? If it is, you need to hold the volume up key, press the power button, and the recovery options should appear.
  2. I wish I knew of an easier way to turn books into audiobooks. At first, I tried various accessibility methods in Kindle for Windows and Android, but neither were desirable or practical. I wasn't able to test it on an Amazon Fire Tablet either, apparently the text-to-speech is better there. Brother Walker, I want to sincerely thank you for writing this story. I was finally able to relax and finish it on rides to and from the convention... thankfully I was already past the parts that left me a sobbing mess. :> You've taken most of the scriptural concepts and speculations that I've struggled to put into memory or visualize for my entire life, and condensed them into the language of my heart so that I can meditate and reason on them. From the bottom of my heart I thank you, which nobody else has ever been able to reach in the same way that your illustrations have. I hope that you'll still be writing thousands of years from now. Spoilers: I found a few grammatical errors. These are the ones I remembered to write down.
  3. "Personal letters should be mailed no later than April 1, 2017." I'm pretty sure that about an hour ago, all times zones are now April 2nd... well done everyone! I'm sure the totals will draw worldwide attention. Now we must await and see what unfolds in Russia.
  4. (Exodus 32:20) He took the calf that they had made and he burned it with fire and crushed it into powder; then he scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.
  5. The mods finally got tired of double checking this cat's posts. This can't bode well.

  6. I can sort of understand using "JW" as a tag, it can make it easier for Witnesses to search for things they might be interested in.. but I am tired of seeing so many false advertising apps whenever I'm installing the official JW Language, Library, Sign Language apps on someone's new device. It makes it more difficult for those who are cognitively or technically challenged to have what they need for the meetings and service, and to stay safe. While 'JW' is just a moniker or nickname, the official logos such JW.org and JW Library are trademarked. Pretty much all images used by the branch are copyright protected, although I doubt they'd press a brother for the sake of love and peace. Sigh... I'm probably guilty of hot-linking images on this forum. https://www.jw.org/en/terms-of-use/#link0 "You may not: Post artwork, electronic publications, trademarks, music, photos, videos, or articles from this website on the Internet (any website, file-sharing site, video-sharing site, or social network); Reproduce, duplicate, copy, distribute, or otherwise exploit any artwork, electronic publications, trademarks, music, photos, text, or videos on this website for a commercial purpose or for money (even if no profit is involved).; Use this website or any of its artwork, electronic publications, trademarks, music, photos, text, or videos for any purposes related to marketing." I see nothing wrong with a person making a living around things that can benefit worship, provided they are extremely careful to keep business & worship in their proper place. https://stoopsmanufacturing.com/ns/trademarks-copyrights-and-licensing/ Brothers and sisters, please keep in mind how Jesus felt about the temple reflecting on Jehovah's name. (John 2:16) And he said to those selling the doves: “Take these things away from here! Stop making the house of my Father a house of commerce!*” (*Or “a marketplace; a business.”)
  7. "Letters should be one page in length"
  8. I apologize, feel free to ignore my overzealous obsession with trying to use the newest advancements in technology. I often speak without understanding and neglect older resources more than I should. I had seen that KM article, but assumed it was kind of outdated since it was made before JW Library was released in Oct 2013. Then came JW Broadcasting and Christian Life & Ministry. However, the current Life & Ministry still references that same article. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/202016204
  9. I definitely don't recommend downloading it from YouTube if there is any possibility to get the DVD, hence I put it as a last resort. I don't like people uploading the society's videos, it doesn't make for a very good witness. Granted, it is one of the better videos in my opinion, and most topics on scientific facts have been moved to the Was It Designed? articles.
  10. My bad indeed.. upon closer inspection of the DVD list, it should be in the "The Bible—A Book of Fact and Prophecy—On DVD (© 1992, 1993, 1996)" collection. http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200276738
  11. It's only on DVD from 2009, you should try to get it from your kingdom hall if possible. Otherwise you might have to buy it second hand. Someone uploaded it on YouTube as well.
  12. It's a 23 year old VHS cassette tape. If you can still order it from your kingdom hall, that would be the best place. Some people are selling it on Amazon... ugh. You'd need a VCR, VHS to PC adapter. and a PC... or you can Google it and use another shady website to rip the video off of Vimeo. All not technically legal aside from possibly personal use or fair use commentary and parody... It may be good for personal study, but I don't recommend using it with students, it's likely not been made digital for a reason. There are newer videos that are much simpler and better reach the heart. The faithful and discreet slave provides spiritual food at the proper time.
  13. Now all we need is an orbital elevator... a watchtower.
  14. I'm pretty sure that's what I did for my tablet, but I can't remember exactly now. I think I may have had some trouble restoring backups from Helium after moving the backups off the device and wiping? Helium makes standard android backups that allows you to use ADB restore commands on them, if you have any issues you may have to resort to that. Minimal ADB PC drivers: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790 ADB Backup/Restore guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-nexus/general/guide-phone-backup-unlock-root-t1420351 I really prefer MyPhoneExplorer now for non-rooted backups, it's free and clean of ads/bloat. It's meant to work with your PC and has a much better user interface. It allows you to make full or custom backups of anything and everything on your android device. https://www.fosshub.com/MyPhoneExplorer.html Titanium and TWRP are still best if you have a custom recovery/rooted device, but that's a lot more complicated to set up. Granted you may want to consider that if you are resetting your phone anyway.
