How many has God killed?

If you summed all the people killed by God (either directly, or at his command) how many people would it be? Steve Wells of Dwindling In Unbelief counted all the deaths for which the bible gives at least an approximate figure. By his count, God has killed 2,270,369 people. Note that this figure only includes deaths for which a number is given in the bible. Deaths for which no number was given, such as from the worldwide flood, are not included.

Before and "8-week” photos of Vincent Regan, one of the actors in the movie “300

What can 8 weeks of the Gym Jones 300 workout do to a man’s body? This:

Vincent shed about 40 lbs and increased his deadlift from 205 to 355. About half the crew was able to do the following “300″ workout by the end of 4 months of training:

“300”
25x Pull-up +
50x Deadlift @ 135# +
50x Push-up +
50x Box Jump @ 24” box +
50x Floor Wiper @ 135# (one-count) +
50x KB Clean and Press @ 36# (KB must touch floor between reps) +
25x Pull-up
300 reps total

Now to actually do it.

GEEK: Thunderbird IMAP slow

I’m using Thunderbird (version 2.0.0.0) on a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (1 GB Ram) running Mac OS X 10.4.9. When I connect to my account at fastmail.fm via IMAP, it frequently takes several minutes for each folder to open, and when I send mail, it often takes several minutes to copy the sent mail to the Sent folder (and sometimes it fails altogether.) Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any suggestions for what I might do to debug it?

[Edit: This has been going on for a couple of weeks, and happened when I was running the previous release of Thunderbird. If I stop and restart Thunderbird, it goes away for a while. ]

Thanks!
