Keeping Commitment (Sunday School, 8-29-10)

The Lord has blessed me with another opportunity to teach his word this Sunday, and I have decided to post my notes for this lesson again.  The name of this lesson is “Keeping Commitment” and comes from Acts 28:16-25b, 28-31.  As usual, you can find the link to my notes below.  It is a Microsoft Word document in the 2007-2010 format (Docx).  I hope that all who this are blessed by it as well.  Thank you.

Custom AR-15 Build

Updated (12-8-2010): My suppressor is now currently on order.  I’m waiting on the serial number so the Form 4 paperwork can be filled out and submitted to the ATF.

This is for my first custom built AR-15.  This shoots 5.56/.223 ammunition along with .22LR with the .22LR drop-in conversion kit.  This has been a very fun project, and wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought it would before I started.  This has been a long time coming, as I’ve had my lower receiver for the better part of 2yrs now, and am just now getting around to finally building the thing.  Of course prices are a little bit higher now, but they’re not too bad if you know where to look for good deals.

Most of my parts are from either DPMS or Yankee Hill Machine (YHM) with a couple of key parts from Spike’s Tactical.  The lower assembly has a DPMS lower parts kit and Pardus butt-stock assembly.  The upper receiver is made by Aero Precision and has a DPMS forward assist, charging handle and ejection port cover, while the bolt carrier group, barrel and rails are from YHM.  Also from YHM are their QDS flip up front and rear sights, phantom flash hider and ss phantom sound suppressor (on order).  I have my parts list below for those that are interested, and the gallery is after the jump.

WordPress 3.0.1

Just a quick update. The site is now running on WordPress 3.0.1. I updated using the auto-update feature of WordPress, and everything went smoothly until I tried to test the site after the update. There was an error on the function require(./wp-blog-header.php). FYI to others who may experience similar problems. If you get the following error:

Warning: require(./wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

Warning: require(./wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in C:\HostingSpaces\ericg\\wwwroot\index.php on line 17

You may have the same problem I did.  To solve this problem, I had to modify the index.php file.  If your WordPress installation is running in your root directory, then you need to change the following line:


To this:


That’s it.  After I changed that, things worked normally again.  If your WordPress installation is not running in the root directory, then you just need to insert the path to your header file.  Hope this helps someone who has a the same problem.
