10 Reasons To Learn Social Media if You Are a Christian

How to Fix a WordPress Blog that Keeps Getting Hacked with Malware

I've been blogging for over 10 years now, and after a while you pretty much go through every hosting account, every possible theme, and eventually you will probably get hacked (if you run a self-hosted domain) at some point. Of course, my last theme, the one I have been using on this site now for…

This Time Next Week We’ll Be Over the Atlantic

I'm still finding it hard to believe that in less than a week our team will be en-route to Uganda to the scene pictured above. Our church has a team in Uganda right now that comes home on Thursday and that photo was one that was taken and posted a few days ago when they…

Our Life of Multitasking and Skimming in Search of Productivity

Maybe its photography over the past 20 years that has made me over sensitive to our cultural demands for productivity, which in turn has given way to our two worst developed habits in search of better productivity, multi-tasking and skimming text.

Review of the AT&T MicroCell or Personal Cell Tower?

I finally had a chance to get around to doing a review on the AT&T MicroCell, but in the end, the MicroCell review was different than I had anticipated.  I was so excited when I found out that AT&T's MicroCell had come to Auburn a few months ago, especially because I have been desperately wanting…

In the Beginning, ARPA created the ARPANET

I love this quoted poem below.  You probably won't appreciate it unless you are a ham radio operator or understand the language but if you do, it's quite something.

A New Website About to Launch at Cornerstone Church

It is not to much of a surprise (outside of the actual look) that Cornerstone is about to launch a new website.  I had the privilege of working with Brad Ruggles, a website/graphics designer and creative developer, on the launch of this new site.  Two of my three earthly passions are faith, technology, and photography,…
