Whether it’s your home or your work network, it’s always a good idea to block material that should not be viewed. And the best way to keep such material off your screen is to block it before it even gets to your router. A great resource for doing just that is OpenDNS. You can find a guide to setting things up here. I recommend blocking things at the router level, but that can be a bit more complicated. Setting it up on a computer-by-computer basis is not difficult, though, so it’s your choice. Regardless, it’s worth the time to do it!

Specifically, the texts will include pages from Oxford’s Bodelian Libraries and the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana (BAV). The digitized pages will include early printed books—called incunabula—from Rome and the surrounding area; Greek manuscripts including early church texts and works by Homer, Sophocles, Plato, Hippocrates; and Hebrew manuscripts from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. “With approximately two-thirds of the material coming from the BAV and the remainder from the Bodleian, the digitization effort will also benefit scholars by uniting virtually materials that have been dispersed between the two collections over the centuries,” a statement from Oxford read.

Rod Decker has compiled a list of typical fonts that support Polytonic Greek. Under normal circumstances you should pick the font that is most convenient, but for things you expect to reuse or publish, I recommend Gentium or SBL.

The folks at Crossway want you to have a very Merry Christmas and so just now released a beta version of their popular ESV app for Android. I’ve been doing a little poking around on it and it’s almost identical to the very nice iPhone version. Search the Android Market and you’ll find it (Crossway is the publisher, so don’t get distracted by 3rd patty apps).
