Changes ...

Monday is the last day we use Numara Track-It! They have a decent enough product but I have found their development team slow to listen to users and the maintenance cost way over priced.

Of course a good IT department must have help desk software ... so what are we going to do and how much is it going to cost?

I'll start with the second question first ... FREE! That is right FREE. Let me introduce you to
Spiceworks. Spiceworks is FREE help desk software. But it is also so much more ... it is a community of IT professionals. Over 1.7 million to date.

Spiceworks has been running in my lab since May. It is easy to install and configure. The interface is intuitive. The community is helpful. Those are three things I could never say about Track-IT!.

We go live with it and our end-users on November 1st. I am looking forward to it.

Why I hate religion ...

Here is a great ten minute video from Mark Driscoll on the subject "Why I Hate Religion". I love what he says near the end, "Religion only leads to pride (I did it!), despair (I can't.), it never leads to Jesus."

I love the way this is shot and edited. Great effects too.

When we're generous, we are often surprised by the blessings that are showered over us in return.

This is from Granger Community Church ...

These guys don't do anything half-way. Awesome. Now I just have to convice my worship pastor to do this...

Almost forgot how to login and other things ...

It has been so long since I have posted here I almost forgot how to login. Things have been crazy busy at work for me, Leann is drawing again, Josh graduated, Isaac is now a senior, Kyle is back from Iraq and I AM FINALLY FREE FROM AT&T! That about sums it up.

Next week I'm going to post about the new Droid X and how it compares to the iPhone 3GS. There is no comparison between AT&T's network and Verizon's so I'm not going to go there. Let me just say that 5 days now without a dropped call ... first time since I swapped over to AT&T almost 2 years ago that has happened. Very glad to be back - and Verizon I am truly sorry I left.

Hello old friend ...

It has been ages since I last blogged. Life is pretty good. Josh graduated high school early. Isaac is playing football again and really liking it. Katie's husband Kyle is back in the states after a year long deployment in Iraq. Leann is getting back to her art. For me work has been crazy busy but good. That's all for now. It seems that Twitter has replaced my blogging. I tweet all the time. Feel free to follow me: twitter.com/dean_cooper.
