What I've been working on...

Lately I've been keeping very busy with programming the "next" version of ExponentCMS that should become visible here later this year (if all goes well). Our site currently uses a heavily modified version 0.98 of ExponentCMS. All of my modifications are publically available as that version of the code is no longer being actively maintained (except by me?). (read more)

Advice for Androids

Having used my new smart phone for several weeks, I thought I'd pass along a few things I've learned. Though I'd like to narrow some of my suggestions down to one, I've not been using it long enough to make a definitive choice, but have narrowed it down to two in most cases. I'm also a "cheap-skate" which means I don't like to pay for something unless I have to, especially if it's available a no cost. (read more)

Worship Projection for the Ceiling Challenged - Part 3

In this third and final article, I'll discuss some minor challenges we overcame during the installation and implementation of using projection during our worship services.  It would be nice to believe that after all the time spent in paving the way and in preparation, we'd be almost finished, which is partially true.  The real gut-wrencing part is yet to come.

Various resources used at HHBC or on this website.

SongSheet - Convert MS Cues to Song Sheets

From "MediaShout"
File Size: 380.2 kb, 1256 Downloads, 0 Comments

This is a MS Word Template (XP - 2010) which takes a MediaShout script and creates a Word file with a list of cues and various selectiable information about the cues.  It can be used to create song sheets or other information sheets about an MS script.

Includes an installer.  This version is updated to work with MediaShout v4+.  It should work with any version of MS Word from XP onward, and MediaShout is NOT required.  The file is not protected so the code may be viewed or edited.

Original file available at www.rayonics.com

PowerPoint Briefing Assistant v2

From "Misc Files"
File Size: 452 kb, 1050 Downloads, 0 Comments

A PowerPoint (XP-2010) add-in to automate several tasks needed for presentations, particularly those with lots of pictures..  Includes features to easily add one or more pictures or an entire folder as full size slides, also can randomize all slides in a presentation and to export/import slide timings (which can be edited outside of PowerPoint as a csv file) Accessible source code in ppt & pptm formats is included. 

At HHBC we display slides in the 16:10 widescreen format, so this add-in makes it easy to create slides from folders of pictures with the slide size.  The "Photo Album" feature of PowerPoint builds standard format (4:3) slides which requires lots of interaction to adjust the picture size.

FAPGuard 9000 Windows Sidebar Gadget

From "Misc Files"
File Size: 44.24 kb, 745 Downloads, 0 Comments

(updated v0.5a) This is a simple Windows Vista/7 sidebar gadget that monitors a Hughes.net HN9000. Displays status, bandwidth remaining, signal level, time to full, and when undocked displays SW ver, SAN, Serial #, & Site ID, Flyout explains status and allows easy modem reset. Colorful icons quickly show bandwidth and signal status.

This gadget only works with the HN9000 modem.  If you still use a HN7000S modem, you can find a similar gadget in this vicinity.

- v0.5 updates to interface with a new (Sept 2013) HNS9000 software version.

- v0.4 updates to interface with a new (May 2013) HNS9000 software version.
- v0.3 updates to interface with a new HNS9000 software version
.
- v0.2 fixes display when modem is degraded or FAP'd and cleans up some other displayed info.
- v0.1 initial version, unknown how it will display when modem is degraded or FAP'd as I've not had my HN9000 long enough to test.
