2010's Hot Technology

A few times each year Steve Hewitt, Christian Computing Magazine's Editor in Chief and I have the privilege of speaking at conferences about what's happening in technology. We talk about the trends and products we think are hot and those that are not hot. I've just released an article recap of what I shared at a recent conference... click here to download a free PDF of it!

McAfee Causing Corporate Meltdown -- The Fix

Yesterday McAfee caused havoc in corporate America by telling Windows XP workstations that a necessary file was a worm!  If you’re running McAfee for anti-virus protection, at least some of your workstations may have been affected.  The symptoms are constant rebooting and/ or inability to do any work on them.

McAfee apologized by posting a fixed SuperDAT.  If your systems are unable to connect, click here to download it directly.

McAfee posted instructions on how to replace the file it deleted manually on their website... click here to access it.

In December last year we announced that we moved our anti-virus spec from McAfee to Sophos because of Sophos' ability to protect systems better in today's computing environment.

Great Fundraising Idea!

While at the CITRT Spring gathering last month at Saddleback Church, I was impressed by Saddleback's recycling program.  In the picture you'll notice they have trash cans with a lable on them stating their recycling ministry is able to provide a Bible for every 10 cans or bottles collected.

Turning trash into Bibles is a GREAT way to motivate me to recycle!  Sure, I care about the planet; but I care much more for the lost souls on the planet!
