Back in 2005, I visited St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York with a friend of mine. Recently he asked if I remembered a quote engraved on the floor, something to the effect of, "Forget the [...], take up the chorus". While this sounds very familiar to me, I can't recall the full quote or the source. I remember it was part of a series of quotes engraved on the floor, mostly from (I believe) 20th-century writers and thinkers. Other than that, I'm stuck.

Help me understand the essence of The Cathedral and the Bazaar
in order to apply the understanding to an entirely different scenario where there is a struggle between top down and bottom up design. I have no programming knowledge after BASIC on DOS 1.0 [more inside]

Why would a Catholic or Anglican choose to use a cathedral as their regular church over more geographically convenient parish churches? How would their religious and social experiences differ as a result?

My dad is collecting images of paintings of "the miracle of the black leg" as supposedly was performed by the Saints Cosmas and Damianus
. He's looking for a good color photo of one that's in the Cathedral of Mexico City. Right now he only has a black and white image
. Does anyone have a really good quality color image of this painting or has the ability to make such a photo? [more inside]

My dad, a lifetime Liverpool FC-supporter, passed away a few days ago. Before his death he specifically requested a special version of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' to played at his funeral.
The problem is we can't find a recording of it.
The one he wanted was the acapella version of the song that was performed by a nine year old boy in Liverpool Cathedral as a part of the Heisel dissaster memorial service.
If you know the name of the boy or any other information about a recording of his performance please help us.
