Granger Church IT Roundtable tomorrow!

September 16th, 2008 at 11:49 pm » Comments (0)

My wife and I drove up to South Bend, IN today so I can attend the Granger Community Church IT Roundtable tomorrow! We’re staying with Justin Moore and his wife Bonnie, along with Dave Mast and his wife Jess! It’s a house full of laptops…and people of course! It’s going to be a great day […]

Fall Church IT Roundables: Be there or…don’t see me!

September 1st, 2008 at 5:00 pm » Comments (5)

I’ve gotten approval to go to the midwest regional Church IT Roundtable at Granger Community Church (organized by Jason Powell) on September 17th! I always love visiting The Jason, Ed, and now Justin Moore too! (Read about Justin joing the GCC team here, here and here.) And Dean Lisenby‘s going to be there, taking the […]

Don’t Buy An EqualLogic SAN…

July 31st, 2008 at 7:00 am » Comments (0)

…Unless you get it from Jason Powell! He’s the IT Director at Granger Community Church, but when the moon is out he’s selling EqualLogic for VR6 Systems and he loves giving churches and non-profits good discounts! (He’ll probably give you a good deal even if you’re not at a church, too, especially if you get […]

Using Free Wireless and VPNs

May 31st, 2008 at 11:23 pm » Comments (5)

I read Tony Dye’s post on Wireless Safety: The VPN Question and wanted to share a comment. It turned into a post of its own, so I’ve moved it into one :-) Read his post first so this makes sense. If a laptop user establishes a VPN connection to your corporate VPN server, and doesn’t […]

Best Videos Ever for Facilities Managers – Or IT Managers!

May 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am » Comments (0)

The two videos that Tony Dye posted about the Juggling FMer are quite possibly my two favorite videos of all time (although my wife would prefer I put our wedding video at the top I think :-) Although related to Facilities Management, they apply equally well in most cases to Information Technology, and are thus […]

My Three Awesome Moms

May 11th, 2008 at 6:25 pm » Comments (0)

Well, it’s Mothers Day again. It didn’t used to be quite as big a deal as it is now. There are two reasons for that. One is that growing up, my Dad always made sure my brother and I had something nice for our Mom for Mother’s Day, and did something nice for her. Go […]

JesusGeek Podcast Interviews Me about WordPress for Church Website

May 5th, 2008 at 11:16 pm » Comments (7)

Given that I’ve never been interviewed before, I’m probably taking the risk of sounding incredibly dumb in public (well, I took that risk already but now I’m doing more damage by telling you about it!) by mentioning that I was interviewed for the JesusGeek Podcast. John Wilkerson, aka Jesus Geek, was interested in how we […]

My First “Indy Christian Geeks” Lunch

April 30th, 2008 at 8:46 pm » Comments (5)

This past Friday I attended my first Indy Christian Geeks lunch, where I was invited a couple of weeks ago by Dr. Thomas Ho from IUPUI’s Computer Information Department (where I’m currently a half-time student). I hear the group is bigger, but there were six plus me last week, and we ate at the food […]

Post Roundtable and MinistryTECH Thoughts (Spring 2008)

April 11th, 2008 at 8:31 pm » Comments (0)

Both MinistryTECH and the Roundtable were, again (for the Roundtable), well worth the trip in more ways than I can express, but since this is a blog I’m sure you expect me to try anyway (I won’t disappoint). There’s always something new and different going on (this time it was some video experimentation and the […]

Gold Star For You!

No, not really you, unless you work at Lakeview. Then, maybe. I recently added a custom field to our HelpSpot helpdesk application that’s very simple: it’s a checkbox. When I’m working on a request and a user solves their own problem, is extra helpful, or makes a brilliant observation (the details boil down to “I’ll […]
