I was inspired from on high once again! It came to me in a dream:

"Open Standards = No Standards!"

That morning I called up Rabbi Mortergenserstein and asked him if I could have the Synagogue for a few Sabbaths, I made it clear that there would be more than ample compensation, but he refused. So I called my cousin the good right Reverend Cleophus Ballmer and asked to lease out his mega-church on 5th Sundays. He was leery at first, then I told him about his compensation. He then told me:
"Brother Ballmer, I cannot resist this word which thou hast been inspired from on high to spread to the lost sheep of the house of Redmond, nay the world!"
Thus I have started "Vista Chapel nondenominational Church of Windows!"
Services begin next year, I don't have a lot of details yet, but keep reading this blog for them.

My first sermon though will definitely be:
"Open Standards = No Standards!"

At Vista Chapel we believe in the power of Vista, the second coming of the Zune and the infalibility of MS management!

... I can't wait either.

...and lo, Steve Jobs said unto me, "The number of the beast shall be 64 bit, SP1 and the name of the beast shall be Vista." And so it came to pass, the 64 bit, SP1 Vista was released unto the world and wreaked havoc upon all downloads and caused all processors to bog down at startup.
