Merry Christmas everyone! (Well, it is boxing day already). Rejoice as the Lord Jesus Christ was born as the Saviour, Word becomes flesh, and destined to the crucifixion death on the cross. Because the importance of this events, several FOCUS bloggers have contributed their thoughts on this.
Scott wrote about his trip to the Christmas service @ St. Matthias, and the main points of Phillip Jensen’s talk. Stephen, in his usual fasion, greeted everyone ‘coz it’s the birthday of his (our) Lord and Saviour. Sui in his posting a while ago, talked about what Christmas is really about, with reflections from an TV ad he saw. Finally, Claudine in her two articles talked about the news reporter’s perspective of Christmas and the fact that God did become one of us in the person Jesus.
Wish everyone a merry Christmas.

Fellow Pelita engineer Claudine Ong is now setting her personal blog up, and she is setting out to have something different from what all the other engineering bloggers already have out there – a blog with girly theme. Let’s see…

There is a new weblog today on FOCUSer.net. Yes. Another Pelita engineer is now hosting his weblog over here on jthie.focuser.net. Johnson has been writing quite a lot of stuff in the FOCUS forums, and hopefully we will also see his PhD thesis first on his weblog site :)

Blogging has to be one of the biggest thing (I refused to call it a technology as it is so simple behind the scene) over the last 2 or 3 years. Blog sites have poped up everywhere on the Internet, and FOCUSer.net and its hosted sites are no exceptions. In this article, I will continue to gather information on the current blogging scene, and provide links of resources on blogging.

I have been blogging on the Internet for almost 2 years now, using different software at different places and time. Initially I have been using a portal site builder phpWebSite, then I started using a simple content management system PhpWiki. Recently I have started using MovableType, which is a dedicated blogging/publishing tool, and I found it a very attractive package.
So I thought, maybe I will share this with the rest of the FOCUS community – at least provide them the hosting and tool so people in FOCUS can also have their own ad-free blog sites. I registered this domain, focuser.net on 7 Nov 2002 with one purpose – FOCUS community website which everyone, either the current FOCUS partners/regulars or ex-FOCUS who have gong back home, can have their blog space here. People can keep an diary of their walk with the Lord on the cyber space for people to share.
How then is this different from the main FOCUS website? FOCUS website will continue to be the public face of FOCUS, where all the public announcement, sermon outlines, bible studies will be posted there. It will be a site of collaboration, where FOCUS members can come and meet and discuss with each other in the forum, and read about the latest event on the news page. However, FOCUSer.net is focusing on the individual – it will be your own blog space and you can write whatever you like (within limits, of course) in your own space. I am also hoping to design this page, the index page of focuser.net, to be a meta blog that shows all the updates of other FOCUS members’ blogs.
How then can I get a blog site? No automatic on-line tool at the moment. If you are interested, please contact me for more details.
