November 24th, 2007 at 6:05 pm » Comments (2)

I finally did it. I can’t think of one Apple product I own — except for the new iPod Classic I just bought yesterday on Amazon for $228 as part of their after-Thanksgiving-day sale (aka Black Friday in the retail industry — they’re finally in the black for the year!). Now, to wait the 1-2 […]

Church IT Podcast Episode 15: Complete

September 6th, 2007 at 4:06 pm » Comments (0)

Well, Church IT Podcast Episode 15 is in the bag, with some good discussion on VLANs, DHCP Relay, and web content filtering. I got the show notes wiki page updated with some notes and links I remember now, having just finished the podcast, but others will hopefully fill in the blanks I forgot about! To […]

I Finally Got my Wife to WordPress: “Check Out” Library Gal!

August 15th, 2007 at 10:30 pm » Comments (0)

My wife has been a social butterfly at several social networking sites for a while, but she’s finally ready to branch out with her own WordPress blog: LibraryGal.com: The life of a librarian. Besides being a great wife and mother, she’s a librarian with a graduate education. When I want to find something, I’ll often […]

No Searching Google Reader!?

August 5th, 2007 at 10:34 am » Comments (1)

Why can I not search my feeds in Google Reader? I’ve noticed over the past several weeks, every time I think “now where in my feeds did I last see x?” I can’t just pull up Reader and ask. Ironically enough, before I started this post, I decided to see what others were saying about […]

Pastor Nathan LaGrange Gets Absorbed

July 31st, 2007 at 12:57 pm » Comments (3)

Pastor Nathan LaGrange is the Worship Leader at Lakeview Church, and he’s also the former college-age pastor. He’s also an all-around around awesome guy, and the pastor who married my wife and me almost two years ago! I guess if I had to play a hypothetical “favorite pastor” game (not that I would generally recommend […]

Important IT Email, or: That which Users love to Ignore

July 4th, 2007 at 2:20 pm » Comments (11)

Barry Buchanan over at Church IT Help posted an entry yesterday that resonated strongly with my own experiences and frustrations. His gist? Staff members don’t read IT emails with important information that they very badly need to read. I’ve notice some of the same things he’s mentioned, and I haven’t found a solution. However, I […]

Good Reads keeps track of your books

June 13th, 2007 at 7:05 am » Comments (0)

Have you ever not wanted to forget about a book you never quite had time to read but want to, so you kept the book out from the library (if your library allows) for more than a year, renewing it over and over again until someone puts it on hold and you have to return […]

Mozilla Thunderbird vs. Google Reader for Feed Reading

June 4th, 2007 at 12:34 pm » Comments (4)

I’ve been using Mozilla Thunderbird for quite some time for reading RSS feeds. The RSS functionality has improved in each new version, and there are a couple of features that have kept me from changing (I tried a bunch of feed readers, web-based and thick client, before settling on Thunderbird, which I also use for […]
