VCU’s Emergency Warning Sirens

Today at 12 PM EST. The VCU Emergency Warning Sirens will be sounded. This is just a test not a real emergency. Along with the sirens, text messages to student’s cell phones, display units and computer warnings will all go off.

Why does VCU see this as an important step to take? This past spring Virginia Tech was under attack by a student with an automatic gun. So many schools implemented emergency notification systems.

I am not looking forward to hearing the sirens and seeing people confused (even though they announced it for weeks).

Long time no post…

I am sorry that I haven’t posted in a couple of days… I have been very busy with the new job and church…

I do have some good posts but I just need to sit down and write them out…

I recently got a new cell phone (1st – Mogul 6800; 2nd (Final) – Palm 755p)…

I recently had 2 friends get the iPhone and they have mixed reviews…

I also started using some new technology like Brightcove.com and YouTube Developer…

I will post more later…

The stage is finished!!!

It was actually finished on Sunday morning at 8:46 AM (14 minutes before service)… 

Here are some pictures of the final stage…

I think it looks great…

iPhone Refund or not???

I picked this one up from the NY Times – Technology Blog…

Refunds and Credits for iPhone Owners
(http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/09/07/refunds-and-credits-for-iphone-owners/)

“While iPhone owners wait for Apple to give out more details about the $100 credit it is offering to those who bought an iPhone before Wednesday’s $200 price reduction, they might want to consider their other options.

And there are no clear answers. Apple and AT&T have said they will give $200 credits or refunds to customers who bought the iPhone in the 14 days preceding the price reduction.”

So are the iPhone owners getting a refund??? I hope for the sake of those people that they are getting a refund…

Well I wanted to put this out there for those who may have bought an iPhone in the past 2 weeks…

A very very very long week…

WOW!!! This last week was very long… My teams and me have accomplished so much this week…

Here’s what we accomplished this week:

Total Stage Changeover (Photos coming soon…) (Thanks Stage Team!!!)

Transformers Promo (Thanks Video Producers!!!)

Men’s Fraternity Promo (Thanks Video Producers!!!)

Officially launched the new HighImpact Living Website (www.highimpactliving.net)

Implemented a new Tech. Leader for our South Side Campus (Trevor D. – Thanks for helping out)

ONE GREAT VISION DAY (Thanks everyone for your help)

I know that it is the services like this morning that make it totally worth it… I think this morning’s service was great… I really love what I get to do in the local church…

“The local church is the hope of the world” – Bill Hybels

That quote is a great quote to remember on weeks like this one… It has been totally crazy but I know that we impacted peoples’ lives this morning and I know that this church will continue to impact peoples’ lives…

I look forward to a more normal week this week but I still have one more service (which we are currently doing right now)…

“Eh-Hee” and huh????

So I was recently reading one of my blogging friends blogs and he mentioned a free download on iTunes… I immediately jumped on it because it was free and Dave Matthews… After downloading it I watched it…

I thought some of his lyrics were very interesting but was kind of disturbed by the video…

Here’s the lyrics (I bolded the interesting parts):

Father gone and I’m heading
It’s a bold side of it again
When you decide to go to him
And the people toasting away
And the people all sitting there, c’mon

Everybody gonna come on in
Like, like c’mon in, yeah, yeah
Everybody gonna come on in
Y’all it’s you wanna c’mon, sir

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Sweet evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Oh God I’m avoiding the
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding God???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Walking along in this haze of confusion
Sometimes I collect, sometimes it takes all of my strength
Just to find enough reason to take the next step, step
But I will, but I will, till I do
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Praise God who has many names
The devil have many more
With the love that my mother gave me
I’m gonna drop the devil to the floor

I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Strange evolution how people have come to believe
That we are it’s greatest achievement
We’re barely, we’re just a collection of cells
Overrating themselves
Hello God I’m avoiding the truth
(Is Dave saying he is avoiding the Bible???)

Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana

Drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees
I’m gonna drop the devil to his knees

Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Brother, sister
Praise

I am still very confused at what Dave Matthews is trying to get across here… I like some of his lyrics but some are making me wonder “Is Dave Matthews seeking God?”… I am going to pray that Dave Matthews finds God and seeks the truth… I hope that someone in his direct path can lead him that way…

Here’s the link to download “Eh Hee” Music Video Free on iTunes (NOTE: The video is marked “EXPLICIT” due to a couple of curse words. I in no way support that kind of language.)… Download the video and let me know what you think…
