Codex Sinaiticus

I guess I'm a part of the 1% of the population that thinks it really really cool that the British Library has scanned the oldest known copies of the bible... complete with 3rd century corrections and non-canonical sections/books.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/7651105.stm

Wikipedia has an article on it that helps fill in the back story of it's discovery and subsequent sale/theft by biblical scholars.

The website with the scanned images keeps crashing. It's either a bandwidth issue, or they don't know how to write XML.

When I turned 21 Phil took me to the Poet & Patriot to get a pint of room-temp Guinness... And Chris Matthews was the man who served us. Just a big, sweet guy who called you "Laddie" and always made you feel welcome in a pub that he considered his living room.

Chris passed away a couple of weeks ago after a long bout with Lung Cancer.

His Memorial is next Saturday at UCSC if you want to go.
