Giving Thanks (Thanksgiving)

By |2020-12-03T14:02:46-06:00December 3rd, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

I’m writing this entry just prior to the Thanksgiving break here in the United States and by the time you read this, most of you will have already eaten your fill of turkey, ham, and all the sides. But today, I can’t help but to reflect on the past calendar year. I’m sitting here thinking about how my family rang in the new year [...]

To host or not to host? That is the question—

By |2020-11-02T08:41:24-06:00November 2nd, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

“Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of hosting, or to take arms against a sea of on-premise servers, and, by opposing, end them?” Alight, alright, I’ll quit. By now I’ve butchered the words of the great playwright Shakespeare, but by the same token I’m sure you know where I’m going with this blog [...]

I.T. Landscape

By |2020-09-23T08:25:11-05:00September 23rd, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

Has anyone noticed a change in the I.T. landscape? I’m not really thinking about the effects of global novel Coronavirus pandemic, but rather how I.T. work has been shifting over the last decade from 2010 until now. Gone are the days of scheduled onsite customer/client support where I.T. providers and MSPs had face to face in person interaction [...]

Fire or Hire Your Firewall

By |2020-08-10T07:59:34-05:00August 6th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

Why was the I.T. engineer in the hospital? He touched the firewall! It’s Ok, boo me off the stage!   All jokes aside, ACTS Group regularly recommends pfSense as our firewall/router solution to current and new clients. pfSense is developed and supported by Netgate, but pfSense is open source so the total cost of ownership is usually just the hardware [...]

Flipping the Switch

By |2020-07-03T08:59:29-05:00July 3rd, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

Given the global pandemic times we’ve been living in, I’ve been writing posts about how our work has changed. I’ve written about video conferencing options, streaming church services, and my last post asked questions about how your church is planning to open up, if at all. Given our current times, many of you may be like me and have [...]

As We Open Up

By |2020-05-28T12:46:51-05:00May 28th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

As many of the 50 states begin to enter into phase two of opening up, what will gatherings of your church look like? This is no doubt a question that’s been on all of our minds for quite some time. All of us have desperately missed the fellowship we enjoy when we gather together and we’ve been chomping at the bit [...]

Your Church & “The Cloud”

By |2020-04-30T13:10:34-05:00April 30th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

By now I’m sure you’ve heard the term, “The Cloud”, but really what does that term mean to you? How do you react when you hear it? I’ve heard it said that the cloud is just someone else’s computer and to a certain extent that’s an accurate description, albeit a very simplified description. Everyone is in fact participating in [...]

A Jeep and Your Church I.T. System

By |2020-02-13T07:22:48-06:00February 13th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

By the time you read this, the Kansas City Chiefs will have already won the Super Bowl and Patrick Mahomes will have already been to Disney World. The fanfare and championship parade in Kansas City will be over and, if you’re an avid NFL fan, you’ll no doubt be looking forward to the upcoming NFL season. [...]
