[Chuckle] I'm guessing none of us will get the $25, but you can tell many of us have used Accordance for a long time. We work here because we love the software.

If I recall correctly, that program disk would have set you back something like $150. I believe the initial price for Accordance was around $150 for the application, and $200 for the GRAMCORD Greek NT and a couple of English Bibles. Compare that with what you can get today with our $399 Triple Learner Collection.

It looks like all the Accordance staff are trying to get their hands on those $25 credits!  :)

 

Well, Accordance staff has been invited to tell their stories, too, but they don't get the $25 credit! And all stories need to be emailed to [email protected] --as a reminder :-)

I started using Accordance 5 on a PC using a Mac 0s 7 emulator... Basilik..Accordance ran like a charm, but there were limitations  with the emulator. Fortunately I went Mac shortly there after. I actually powered up the old Dell Inspiron to experience it again. Made me smile. Not a long time user like many, but determined to experience Accordance in spite of not having a Mac. I can post a pic if anyone is interested. Congrats on 25 years.

I remember being at conferences where almost all the attendees were Windows users. I'd have a stack of Windows laptops at the booth, all waiting to have the emulator installed.

I've always thought that Accordance really must be an amazing application if so many people were willing to use it in an old Macintosh os7 emulated environment.

I'm on a Mac most of the time, but It was a wonderful day for me when Accordance was released for Windows :-).

My story may be shared, but I've only been using Accordance for under a month I think. I feel really blessed that my story is probably going to be shared after seeing some of these other stories (which I have no idea what they are talking about, honestly). :)


New music I am interested in:

https://youtu.be/Y-ZiJmDOk2c - Matisyahu, Produces Reggae and Pop music as a practicing Jew. His song "One Day" talks about peace between the world at large

https://youtu.be/44S6vBveKZQ - Demon Hunter, Traditional Christian Metal/Rock band who just came out with 2 very successful albums, separately, titled 'War' & 'Peace'

https://youtu.be/R7REkjcwM_8- POD (Payable On Death), Positive Nu-Metal/Rock/Reggae band that gained popularity when they came out with "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation" off the album 'Satellite' which released 9/11/2001

https://youtu.be/Bz-g2tucn24- Project 86, Post-Hardcore Christian band. Andrew Schwab, the front man of the band runs a podcast (which I support through Patreon) dedicated to helping other creatives find their voice.

 

See my YouTube channel, and it's purpose! I am pretty underground now, but I think I am going to make it!

As I see John 6:29:

Joshua replied to all of them, "In me is the Work of God, in order that you [all] trust that I will send you."

 

Jesus started His ministry as a commandment of God through His mother, whom he obeyed, to urged Him to begin His ministry. What transpires from that is Him as the greatest light of the world that ever was and ever will be. As a representation of this, he did a miracle and from six pots of water He made into wine that represents humanity at large. He made the wine into the best tasting wine as a representation of what He does for those of us who believe He was God and did the Work of God so that He might send out His Spirit upon the whole world.
