  1. I thought we should start out with a continuation of the Mormons and Evangelicals threadjack. My understanding is that Ken Jennings is a good democrat and a good Mormon.

  2. Suggestion: Rather than threadjack, why don’t you or Tossman submit a guest post that addresses the issues that you want to talk about. I’ll post it, and you can have an on-topic discussion.

  3. What, you don’t want another post threadjacked?:) Sounds good to me. I’ll write a guest post sometime next week when I have a little more time on my hands. If somebody wants to do one before then, so be it.

  4. He is also a good Evangelical, and a good threadjack.

    Discuss.

  5. I’ll take “Stretching Your 15 Minutes of Fame to 25″ for $200, Alex.

  6. Re #5, Let’s modify that to “His 15 minutes of fame already ended and he’s trying to rewind the clock.”

  7. I feel touched by greatness – I was in the same branch / ward and attended the same school as Ken Jennings for several years. He was a little young then though. It is his parents I really know – some of the kindest members I have ever met. I was in awe of his father’s intellect, faith, and erudition as a middle school student.

  8. Holy crap, you’re that Mark Butler? I had no idea. You were into computers before it was cool, right? Or am I thinking of someone else?

    As far as 15 minutes of fame go, hey, I’m just trying to clean out the garage. You have no idea how much space a huge styrofoam head can take up.

  9. Is Jennings really evangelical? There are so few of us in this mostly self-salvation church.

  10. Ken, if you are that Ken Jennings, yes I am that Mark Butler. I talked with your father about theological topics quite often between meetings, and he invited me and my brother Wayne over on several occasions, mostly due to our shared interest in (Apple) computers. In fact, when my parents went back for the temple dedication, he went out of his way to help them find a replacement Apple II clone motherboard for me.

    I still have the letter he wrote – he said I would particularly like the one he selected because all the integrated circuits were socketed, so it was easy to repair and perform other curious hardware hacks. (Apple IIs were nearly all common LS TTL logic for those who know what that means).

  11. I can tell that you are a specialist at the field! I’m launching a website soon, as well as your info can be really useful for me.. Thanks for all you help as well as wishing all of you the achievement in your company.
