Old and New: Major Life Transition

January 27th, 2010 at 4:43 am » Comments (15)

I’m excited, nervous, and sad all at the same time. And busy. I’ve decided to leave my awesome, comfortable, flexible, almost-7-year job/family of seven years (as an employee, my family will still be attending Lakeview) and jump into a scary, new position with a small-but-growing local IT service company. Why? Well, Lakeview is running smoothly […]

Comcast Home Internet without the cr*pware

February 17th, 2009 at 12:48 pm » Comments (0)

This morning we switched at home from 1.5Mbit AT&T DSL to 6Mbit Comcast Cable internet (yay!). I remembered from last time we had Comcast that they (like AT&T) like to send a CD that you are required to use to activate your modem, but also happens to install things that no sane IT person would […]

My Tasks, Projects and Stuff (now playing: Toodledo)

September 22nd, 2008 at 2:03 am » Comments (14)

“I’ve been, searching, for that missing productivity application.” OK, it doesn’t end with quite the same rhythm as Michael W. Smith’s “MIssing Person,” but it rings true for me anyway. Sometimes I think I’ve tried nearly every todo, productivity, and Getting Things Done software or web application invented. Then I look around the web for […]

First post from my iPhone

July 30th, 2008 at 11:33 pm » Comments (0)

I know, it’s just the obligatory first post from new mobile device. Nothing special. So far I’m enjoying the iPhone immensely, and typing isn’t great but it’s not bad, especially in text fields where you can type a word and hot space , and let the phone autocorrect your spelling! It’s pretty smart but not […]

The Day of the iPhone Has Arrived!

July 30th, 2008 at 12:22 pm » Comments (4)

Yesterday, my iPhone shipped to the AT&T store where I’m going to pick it up. It ships overnight FedEx, which I’m very happy about, because it means I can go in the store and pick it up today! I’ll be going after work this evening. The FedEx tracking number shows that it was delivered at […]

iPhone has been ordered!

July 18th, 2008 at 1:15 am » Comments (1)

I ordered an iPhone 3G today! (Well, yesterday technically…on Thursday) Should be here in less than a week supposedly, and I’ve already downloaded 71 of the free applications from the iPhone App Store in iTunes, ready to install! The WordPress app is done (Matt Mullenweg posted about it) but hasn’t been put in the store […]

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 […]

I’ve intentionally stayed away from using Twitter for a while (not that I haven’t had an account!); it’s just one more thing to deal with and I already have enough profiles, blogs, and other random accounts. But it seems to be getting more popular among some Church IT bloggers, and I’m starting to miss things […]

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 […]

Typed LIVE on the Nokia N800!

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 […]
