    myself and the SOR staff at school are compiling a website with all 95% and above assesments with full notes on the 3 foundation studies. Should be finished during the Xmas break. Will keep you posted

    New Studies of Religion Resource

    www.metatemporal.com

    My SOR site that I have been (slowly) developing over the past year and a half (*in one form or another)

    Many things to see and do!

    I recommend "notawiki" if you are into the wiki thing (slowly building up) and there is "phorum" (which is a bit dead at the moment but has lots of potential) and of course my notes section (but it is really only for my students)

    Feel free to contribute stuff (especially to the wiki)


    That is all!


    Note: it is run off my old laptop so the speed varies depending on what I am doing at home. (I only have a SDSL 512 each way so dont expect lightning fast when Im doing work or Im Skypeing with my Dad and the rest of the clan!)
