As for the shortcut. You can just directly run the program. Or edit the shortcut. Or create a new one.
No, I haven't been able to run it directly either going to start up and hitting run or from the menu of programs. Neither options have worked. They work when they want to, or when the computer's brain is back from lunch or coffee or messin' around with the cute laptop in the next building. I still catch the computer every once in a while still putting back on it's outer case. Friggin' perv!
What lesson did you learn from that....?
Don't buy cheap programs. If there's a $30 to $35 version and a $99, then wait until I can comfortably buy the $99.
ISA2 is free so should work
Still doesn't. But I'll mess with it later when I really have an interest in having a Bible on my computer. I've been sharing the Gospel online since August of '01, (I'm thinking that's about when AbbasChild ran across me and joined the mailing list at the time.) although I think others had snuck a thing or two of mine online previous to that. But in the time that I've been online, have always just used my spirit's memory, my Bibles, and biblegateway.com and in more recent years studylight.org Usually if I want to mess with Greek and Hebrew beyond my current at home resources, then I'll wander over to a really great Christian bookstore called Mardel that's a couple of miles from me or so, and it's an excuse to look through everything from the Reference section to the devotionals to the current debates about stuff to whether or not there are any Bibles worth buying and to hang out in the music department listening to CDs I don't have in case there's either anything I want to buy or come home and download from online.
If I could have my internet connection in the middle of a Mardel, I'd be extremely happy. It's like a Christian version of Barnes and Noble. A bit bigger than a lot of the other Christian bookstores I've seen. Homeschooling supplies for kids of all ages from really really little to ministerial stuff like communion sets, baptismal certificates and blank ordination cards and certificates, to all of the light pop Christian reading and music to the various types of Christian artwork someone might want to accent their home with is all right there. I'd rather hang out there, to be perfectly honest, than to even be online. I've offered to work there several times even if it was just minimum wage, but never have been hired yet. I genuinely love the place THAT MUCH. Funny if they happened to google applicants or if I was more notorious than I realized locally, but perhaps God keeping me from working there to keep me focused on what I'm doing right now.
God's kept me online for a reason, and I'm starting to understand what He had in mind all along as His primary reason, besides the ultimate of ministering to a wider selection of people from all walks of life. I could hang out there all day everyday and never even miss the internet in the slightest with one exception that I won't get into here. But I'll mess around with the downloadable Bible software every once in a while as a possible teaching tool for helping my roommate the brief moments they're open to my sharing anything, since they're a bit leery of the flow my Biblical understanding has been taking this decade. Dumping Hell, they could kinda see, but dumping carnal rapture and some other stuff and now I've really crossed over the line supposedly!
