It is simply our miopic perception that leads us to believe that the universe is infinite. There was a time that this very vision was the one that had led mankind to consider that the earth was flat. It was after extreme effort and was only when man learnt to swim the seas with vessels that they realized that the earth was round and that it consisted of unventured continents and seas. This was a time when mankind considered it impossible to cross the sky to reach for the stars. Time moved on and man is currently at at stage where it has crossed the skies and entered into the realm of stars and galaxies. The spaceships are now the vessels that have taken over from the boats that use to swim the seas of the Earth. The spaceships are boats looking at galaxies which are the continents within the sea of the Universe The Universe is as infinite and as round as the Earth.Our space is a sea. Miopic science is currently unable to realize that the space we are travelling on is the sea, the galaxies its continents and if we were to keep travelling we would eventually come back to the same spot in the universe that we started our journey from.Its is only then that we will realise that the Universe is indeed is round and that the galaixies are the continents within the finite Universe. Sura 65:12 "God is He Who created seven Firmaments and of the earth a similar number. … "

I would have incorporated videoconferencing with the current Facebook Chat. This would make Facebook video conference ready and thus allow friends and family to conference and video chat via Facebook. By developing this I would eradicate the need more people to look for other options like MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger or any other video conference/chat etc outside of their Facebook page. The only thing I would have to know as a developer is which company would like to incorporate video videoconferencing an integral part of the Facebook Chat that is currently provided.

So perhaps as I write this I too am subject to being a Blasphemous person. The entire note I am about to write is making be remember the song by Depeche Mode called Blasphemous Rumours.
The lyrics go something like " I don't want to start any Blasphemous Rumours, But I think that God's got a sick sense of humor and when I die I expect to find him laughing"
Unfortunately the note is not about the song, It about the law behind being blasphemous a crime punishable by Death
I remember as a child a parable that was repeated to me time and time again, about a lady who was blasphemous.
It narrated the story of the Prophet Mohammed and his daily interactions with an unruly female neighbour who used to curse him violently and then proceed to dump garbage onto him every day from her perch-top window each time he would ever walk by her house.
One day, the Prophet noticed that the woman was not present to throw garbage outside of her window. In true prophetic kindness, he actually went out of his way to inquire about her well-being and then proceeded to visit this unfriendly neighbor at her bedside inside of her own home when he had found out that she had fallen sick.
Shouldn't this story indeed act as the basis of leniency and kindness toward unfriendly, hostile and blasphemous acts and should this not be the way to react within our collective lives towards those who do not know better.
If death sentence against blasphemous people was to be the norm wouldn't the neighbour in the parable have been hung?
If the Prophet had over looked the silliness to the blasphemous acts, why is the current so called Islamic lawmakers resorting to threats of violence aimed at the silliness of blasphemous acts which in turn are aimed at inciting a provocative response around the world.
I wish every Muslim around the world should take a very deep breath and simply ask themselves one basic question:
“What Would Muhammad Do?”

Open your eyes to the World of Free Software.What is Free Software?
“Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech”, not as in “free beer”.
Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study and even have the abilty to change and improve the software.
Mr. Stephen Fry introduces you to free software, and reminds you of a very special birthday
Here is a glimpse of how to locate, download and even develop open source software. There are endless possibilities in the world of open source software. You can venture the World of the Free software revolution by going to the Free Software Directory.
For those who are using Windows or Mac OSX you may be surprised if I inform you that many users within these operating system are currently using open source products like Firefox Web Browser or VLC Media Player or perhaps even an open source office productivity suite.
