Brett Was Here

January 31st, 2008 at 1:02 pm » Comments (0)

Brett and I had a great time hanging out, eating lunch (thanks!), and taking a tour around Lakeview on Wednesday! Brett is the full-time Church IT staff member located closest to me that I know personally, and I didn’t even realize until Tuesday that he worked at a church (Christian Life Center) that my wife […]



Hide and Seek Mouse

January 31st, 2008 at 12:29 am » Comments (1)

Yesterday, I was packing up my laptop from the coffee table to take with to work. I had placed the wireless mouse I use into its case and on top of the mouse pad I use, next to the laptop (I pack the mouse after my power cord, which was still plugged in). When I […]



Brett Anderson, Live Tomorrow

January 29th, 2008 at 10:28 pm » Comments (3)

Is it just me, or do my posts have a lot of “live” themes lately? Well, this one’s different at least. Tomorrow (Wed.), the Worship and Fine Arts staff from Christian Life Center in Dayton, OH are coming to visit the Worship and Creative Ministries team here at Lakeview. Apparently they know each other. Brett […]



Typed LIVE on the Nokia N800!

January 29th, 2008 at 10:49 am » Comments (5)

As promised, this post is coming to you from my new Nokia N800. When I received it on Saturday the 19th, I immediately spent the entire rest of the day examining it and testing it in many ways. Like Christmas in January! I was so busy playing with it, I neglected to post about it […]



Nokia N800 Internet Tablet: On Its Way!

January 17th, 2008 at 8:00 am » Comments (6)

Quite a lot going on at the moment! I spent nearly all of yesterday (Wednesday) working on several helpdesk issues ranging from setting up two new Palm Centro cell phones to diagnosing a sound card issue on a laptop to stuff I can’t even remember at this point! It’s the longest I’ve spent away from […]



The MySQL AB “sequel”: Acquisition by Sun!

January 17th, 2008 at 1:24 am » Comments (0)

Wow. I didn’t see that coming, but I suppose I didn’t watch all that carefully, either. MySQL AB is the company behind the exceedingly popular MySQL database engine, which powers this very blog and all other WordPress blogs, among practically millions of other websites and software (including the helpdesk application we use, HelpSpot). I’ve been […]



Ministry Technology’s First Class, Church IT Podcast, and IRC’s #citrt

January 16th, 2008 at 5:16 pm » Comments (3)

The Ministry Technology Institute just had its first class yesterday afternoon! I’m on their Advisory Board and I’m also taking advantage of the opportunity to go through their classes as a good way to both provide feedback and of course, learn something new, which I manage to do just about always and everywhere. They are […]



iTunes Store breaks, ISA 2004 SP3 to blame

January 10th, 2008 at 12:39 pm » Comments (3)

This past Tuesday, I installed ISA 2004 Service Pack 3. I’ve got a recent configuration backup from the last time I had some SSL certificate issues (that was fun enough I think I’ve blocked it out too much to blog about it!), so I figured trying it out couldn’t hurt, and it had a lot […]



How to Schedule Weekly Email Reports to Staff?

January 2nd, 2008 at 1:46 pm » Comments (3)

We have at least one weekly email that gets sent out to staff members each week. It’s a short report that each person fills out and sends to their immediate supervisor. It is supposed to be sent out early Monday morning every week. The administrative assistant that has been tasked with sending these to everyone […]

Happy New Year plus One Day! I didn’t get my promised new year post out yesterday as planned. That’s OK, the day was as uneventful as this entry :-) Back to work, with more post fodder! I have another one I need to write right now; that’s one reason this is short. I’m not making […]
