The Christian Carnival has hit the big 200 this week, and it fittingly resides this week at the blog of its founder, Nick Queen.

The 200th Christian Carnival will be taking place this coming Wednesday at, NickQueen.com, home of the Christian Carnival founder. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see Matt Jones's list of previous Christian Carnivals.
 
To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Select only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from the last Wednesday through the coming Tuesday). Then do the following:

It's been really busy with grading and applications the last few days, and I haven't been able to finish my post about torture and legal definitions, but I can post at least something in the meantime. Here's a search that came in recently:

Can the Holy spirit create feelings of attraction that never existed in a marriage

We are talking about an omnipotent God, right?

600,000

About an hour ago, my sitemeter rolled over to 600,000. As is often the case with momentous numbers in my sitemeter, it wasn't a very interesting circumstance. Someone in Puerto Rico wanted a picture of Barack Obama.

HugeURL

TinyURL is a very useful site. You can take a very long URL and create a tiny one that will forward to the huge one. Then you can copy it into a document that doesn't handle HTML (which could encode it so it's not visible), and it can take up a pretty small space.

Now I can understand the desire to find other useful things along similar lines, since this one worked so well and has been so valuable for so many people. But I didn't expect anything like HugeURL, for those who want ridiculously long URLs. [hat tip: GeekPress]

Since parableman.net is pretty short, short enough that making a TinyURL out of it actually results in a longer URL. So I thought it would be nice to give myself a HugeURL intead. Here, then, is your new alternative way to end up at this blog:

Maybe I should discontinue parableman.net in favor of this. Imagine if I sent this to everyone who links to this blog, asking them to update their links.
