I bought a copy of Compton's Interactive Bible several years ago. It was
15 (British) pounds reduced from 30. I still see piles of the boxes in
various computer stored. The thing about this CD-ROM is that the text of
the NIV is unencrypted. The interface is awful and the search engine
slow. As I no longer use Microsoft Windows I've copied the text to my
Linux workstation where I make us of it for my provate study. That said I
tend to use the Web searchable version more.
British Sign Language is not inarticulate handwaving; it's a living language.
Support the campaign for formal recognition by the British government now!
