I’m listening to the New Scientist Magazine’s podcast interview with Richard Dawkins. It’s really interesting stuff and it looks like a bunch of secular scientists from around the world are getting ready for the latest round in the Great War between Science and Religion for the minds of the human race. I’m personally one who agrees with Dawkins that the battle needs ramping up.

Speaking of religion… Father Bob Maguire wants me to help him set up a webcam in his church to record his Christmas Eve sermon. He’s the one priest I don’t mind helping out. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good webcam which could capture a high-res image inside a church? We need to somehow set up a simple capture system that Bob’s people can operate. They will need to be able to focus, capture, save the file, and then I’ll help them figure out how to upload it to our servers.
