The FCC is updating the definition of broadband that I posted back two years ago. It’s gone from 4Mbps/1Mbps to 25Mbps/3Mbps. Windstream (and many other DSL providers) don’t provide broadband to most of their customers, nor did they with the previous definition.
I recently emailed the entire committee that was reviewing this bill. This bill did not pass but I think it pertains to a larger discussion – what is broadband and why are companies in 2013 still offering top speeds below this?
So I’m a slacker. I haven’t blogged recently, since life’s been insane. Yup. But what else is new. Just a quick life update: this last year and a half has brought us a new church, a new job, a new house, a rambunctious toddler, some sorrow, quite a bit of sickness, yet overall a blessed time. I’ve had a great time redesigning our church’s website (cfcnga.org) although it was really just loading content into WordPress and applying a template generously donated by our last church home (takeajourney.org).
Update: I’ve now redesigned the site with another template, but thanks to Journey for allowing me to use the template for the time that I did!
Good old double entendres. I finally have a chance to blog again, as I have a new job. I’m back at North Georgia College and State University in the Information Technology Department, now as a full-time staff member. I’m the Technical Support Technician I – I do classroom technology support as well as various other things (video editing, computer images, etc.) I’ll try to get back into blogging and micro-blogging now that I’m in this new position.
So, we’re getting settled in here in good ol’ GA. We’re in the Lawrenceville area hanging with my grandmother-in-law and aunt-in-law (whom I usually speak of as “my wife’s grandmother and aunt” since the alternative is a mouthful). I’m looking for jobs in the area, if anyone is interested. I have my portfolio here on the site, if you’re curious what I’ve done. The strange thing about looking for jobs is I have a very diverse skillset. For example:
- I’m finishing up my Master of Divinity with Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and would love to work in a church or a parachurch ministry giving counsel to people from the Bible.
- I’ve been on staff and before that volunteering at Journey Church (and also working at my seminary) doing production stuff – video and audio editing, lighting programming, web, and all that sort of stuff. I love tech.
- For over a decade, I’ve built websites (sometimes for fun, sometimes as a job or part of a job) and I would consider myself an advanced dabbler. Along with a friend, I’ve maintained a web host for a few years now.
- Another area I love is making computers and tech stuff in general work. While in college, I actually was one of the first employees of the NGCSU Help Desk.
Diverse, huh? If anyone reading this knows of any jobs in the Atlanta (especially Northeast GA) area, please shoot me a note.
