Hi All,

Happy Easter.

I've just release BPBible 0.2, my Python based Bible viewer.
It's homepage has moved to bpbible.googlecode.com, where it is being hosted.

version of BPBible, so that it will have a remote install manager.

God Bless,
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness,
but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish,
but that all should reach repentance.
2 Peter 3:9 (ESV)
