Techsmith’s popular screen capturing utility Snagit finally debuted on the Mac last week. I’ve been beta testing it from its early stages, so Techsmith sent us early beta testers a free license. It’s been great seeing it through the beta and now as a final product. Snagit makes it easy to not only capture one’s computer screen, but also includes powerful annotation tools that make spicing up screen captures simple. It’s perfect for building written tutorials or in areas where one needs to visually enhance their screen captures and quickly send them to various destinations. For quick and easy captures, there’s of course their excellent Jing application, and for simple and powerful screencasting, there’s Camtasia Studio for Windows and Camtasia for Mac (I use Camtasia for Mac for all of my professional screencasting projects). As Logos Bible Software did with Logos 4 for Mac, Techsmith is celebrating the launch of Snagit for Mac with a giveaway. You can find all of the details here. Prizes include a MacBook Pro, an iPad, iPod Touch, and some Apple Store Gift Cards. So checkout Snagit for Mac today and enjoy powerful screen capturing as easy as a Mac!
DVQ’s lab has been decorated with a Christmas tree The children enter and sit while DVQ pulls out a Bible.
DVQ : And now I would like to read you all one of my favorite parts of the Bible. (Reads Matthew 1:18-2:12 ) The gifts that the wise men gave to Jesus are nothing in comparison to the gift that God gave to them and to all of us when he sent his Son, Jesus Christ to save us from our sin!
DVQ and Harold are standing beside a stable watching as Mary and Joseph are watching a baby sleep in a manger.
DVQ: Harold look! Over there by the shepherds in that field! Look at all the angels. Hey Harold, that angel looks just like you! And Hark! The Harold Angel Sings!
Harold : I know Doc, it’s amazing. Here come the shepherds now.
The shepherds approach down the main aisle coming from the back and cautiously approach Mary Joseph and the baby Jesus. All three shepherds look into the manger and then back away in awe.
Shepherd1: It’s him! It’s really him!
Shepherd2: It’s just like the angel said!
Joseph: Please, excuse me but my wife has only just given birth, but how did you know we were here? What angel appeared to you? What did he say?
Shepherd3: Just a short time ago we were settling in for the night watching over our sheep when quite suddenly out of nowhere an angel of the Lord was standing right in front of us.
Shepherd2: I don’t mind telling you it sure scared me.
Shepherd1: But the angel told us not to be afraid because today, right here in the city of David a Savior has been born for us: Christ the Lord!
Shepherd3: And he gave us a sign to know who it was, he said the baby would be wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. And would you look at that (motioning to the baby) a baby boy wrapped in cloths and laying in a manger of all places.
