How many top-level domains are there?

The actual number changes occasionally because new TLDs (top-level domains, also known as domain extensions) get launched on the internet from time to time. The current number of top-level domains can be found on this web page:

Email services with .email extensions

The internet now has this wonderful new domain extension so people can have email addresses that end in a .EMAIL instead of .INFO or .COM. What’s great about these new top-level domains is that they just make sense.

Here’s a real life scenario. You meet Joe and he gives you his email JOE@EXAMPLE.XYZ — and you didn’t quite hear what he said after the dot. Or, you forgot it. You don’t have to be guessing and asking yourself, was it .INFO, or .NET, or .ORG, or .CO?? When Joe uses a .EMAIL extension, he has an unforgettable email like JOE@EXAMPLE.EMAIL.

This list has email services I could find so far with a .EMAIL ending. Please add a comment with other ones you know of or find.

This kind of information is typically published on the about page, contact page, and also embedded in the terms & conditions and privacy policy, but not yet at christiannewspost.com.

What information about christiannewspost.com is there? Its donation page links to a PayPal page with “Business of Christ.” Its Facebook page has a team member named ZE Jameson, in Sarawak, Malaysia.

How to share a web page to Google+ from your browser?

It should be as easy as one click to share a web page from your web browser on your social media feed. Right? Who wants to copy and paste a link from the address bar? What average person (who is not doing social media as part of their job) wants to create a short URL and then copying and pasting twice to share? Ugh.

Share Menu on macOS

It’s easy on the Mac if you’re sharing to Twitter or Facebook. In macOS, the Share button IL_shareButton_osx  (first released in OS X Mountain Lion, August 2015), makes it really easy to share on social media—only to Twitter and Facebook—and other macOS apps that can be added and integrated.

But what about other social networks? Instagram and Pinterest pretty popular. The Share Menu says that there are “third-party extensions to customize your Mac.” Sure there are all kinds of app extensions, but I’ve not been able to find the extensions that let you share to other social networks.

How to share on Google Chrome?

The Google Chrome browser became the most popular web browser in May 2016, according to netmarketshare.com‘s Browser Market Share chart. But, have you noticed that there’s not an easy and fast way to share to Google+ in that browser? You would think.. and, it wasn’t until recently (in version 45) that Google Chrome added a menu item to Share, under the File menu. How long has social media been around? Surprising?

chrome 45 has share macos

I searched high and low for a Google Chrome Extension to share on multiple social networks, especially the popular ones. There are plenty of extensions that can share to 1 or 2 social networks; and some that can share on social media more widely. I did not want to install multiple extensions, like one for each social network.

And, I wanted an extension that’d be work similarly on both Google Chrome and Firefox. I use multiple web browsers occasionally.

I found 2 that are more robust browser extensions for sharing on social: AddToAny and Shareaholic.

How Asian Americans Can Gain a Voice in the Conversation

This is an important conversation starter, as Asian American Christian ministry leaders begin to engage in a public discussion about racial dynamics of evangelicalism. There’s a lot more Asian Americans have to contribute. I like his reflections beyond diagnosing the problems and coming up with several suggestions that could gain traction.. kudos.

If you’ve been following the conversation on Lecrae’s reverse exodus from white evangelicalism, you will know the following has taken place:

  1. Lecrae released his new album, “All Things Work Together”
  2. Lecrae mentioned his divorce from white evangelicalism on a Truth’s Table interview.
  3. John Piper wrote an article on Desiring God and Christianity today responding to Lecrae’s departure from white evangelicalism expressing his gratitude for Lecrae’s faith, asking questions about the role of racial identity development in the church, and asking what Lecrae’s loosening from white evangelicalism means for multi-ethnic relations.
  4. I responded to the question about what Lecrae’s loosening from White Evangelicalism means to multi-ethnic relations in an open letter to John Piper.
  5. Bryan Loritts’ responded affirming what was written in my open letter, while also expressing his exhaustion being in white evangelical spaces. He then called for people of color to create their own spaces and invite…

finding conversations about the Bible and about God

Did you find this blog post as one of the WordPress tags? Or because you follow this blog on wordpress.com? Or something else?

If you’d be so kind to add a comment and let me know how you got here, that would help me figure out how to better tag and present mu blog posts on the Bible or whatever topic.

There are so many ways to find content these days beyond the search engine. Different apps and websites call it Explore or Discover. I can’t count them all. I know lots of people are spending lots of time on Facebook, but that doesn’t necessarily means there are not people here browsing for content on wordpress.com.

Following WordPress Tags

Today I was intrigued by the WordPress.com tags and how you can click on popular tags or follow specific ones in your WordPress reader. This link to Bible shows you the most recent posts tagged with the Bible tag. Or, in the Bible category. Yes, tags and categories are almost interchangeable in the wordpress system.

Blogging my conversations with God

Started a blog at demystifying.bible a couple months ago. Yes, that is a real domain name, a real web address, pretty neat, eh?

I’m discovering that by using my own words in talking with God, that, this has helped me to be more engaged in prayer. And that’s a good thing. I’m finding that it’s boosted my spiritual life to converge prayer and writing and talking. Along the way, this has furthered a discovery of my prayer language.

If prayer can be thought of as having a conversation with God, then it should be okay to talk with God in my own words the way I talk and think and feel. After all, a number of people are doing that with the Bible, paraphrasing it and publishing new Bible versions to make the Bible more understandable. Surely, making prayer more understandable to the person that is praying can only be helpful.
