John became a Muslim in 1995 in search for God even though he was born into a Christian family. He eventually gave his life to Jesus in Dec 1997, and has been running a recording studio dedicated to the Gospel from 1998 to 2004. John has a dream to reach the youth through music. He loves to play a mix of Blues and Jazz. Professionally he is a hotelier. He was at college in Switzerland after completing high school in the US and now lives in Cochin, Kerala, India, with his wife and three children.
Installed GIMP today. Wanted to get away from photoshop, mainly because the ones available are pirated.
Downloaded Grokking the GIMP. Just what I need to get going.
Having made a decision to not use any pirated software, I am pretty happy with where I have reached so far. Learned to do websites with HTML-kit and NVU, CSS with notepad2 and Topstyle lite and now with GIMP, I'm hoping to get creative.
Living in India, going legit with software is not an easy decision to make, but the laborer is worthy of his wages. Taking or using something that the owners require payment for basically qualifies as theft. This is no deep revelation but it has become a conviction which has lately given me the strength to make sacrifices.
Life is not living with truth in the inward being. I must practice what I preach.
