Well, I finally have Blosxom set up and configured. It took some work because it is written in Perl and meant to run under Apache. My hosting plan at Halfprice Hosting runs IIS on windows. It seems that IIS has some problems with the PATH_INFO variable.

Initially, I tried to get Halfprice to change their server configuration. I didn't give them much time because I decided it was easier to edit the code. I only had to change one line. When I get time, I will put my updated code in my store for download.

I only really have one more thing to do, and I'll be pretty happy with the layout of this blog, and that is to add a calendar plugin to the right-hand side of the screen showing dates I have made blog entries. That way, as things scroll off the bottom, you can still get to them. Since I'm talking about it, why don't you send me an e-mail and let me know what you think. My contact information can be found here.

I don't really know what I'm going to talk about in this blog. Proboably anything that interestes me at the time. I set it up more just because I was interested in seeing if I could set one up. The challenge now is to keep it up to date so people want to read it. I'll probably blog a bit about religion, computers, politics, anything I can think of. Just to let you know ahead of time, I probably won't post more than once a day (hopefully I can keep that up!). If you have anything in particular you want me to talk about, just send me an e-mail. My contact information is here.

I started Christian Computer Solutions in 1999 (I think. Man does time fly!) to provide computer consulting services to churches, christian organizations, etc.... Since then, it has allowed me to be involved in some interesting things. If you are curious what I have done, just take a look at my projects.

My real employer NiSource recently announced that they were looking to outsource all of Corporate Services. Basically, that includes everything not core to the company (HR, IT, Accounting, etc....). They made the announcement on the most recent Wall Street earnings call. A link to the call can be found here on the Yahoo! finance site.

So, while I'm not out of a job yet, I soon may be. If you, your church, or other Christian organization needs any kind of IT assistance, feel free to contact me. Again--I know, it is getting old typing it too--my contact information can be found here. If you want to have a peek at my resume, go ahead. You will need Adobe Acrobat reader to view it. If you don't already have it, you can download it directly from Adobe here
