Teds get to I.T.

“I cannot find my work on my laptop and the internet has stopped working!” was the message I got from L one of the church wardens of a neighbouring parish. As I used to have a proper job in the I.T. Industry (and she knew it) I offered to pop around and see what was what.

Turns out the wireless driver had failed on the one laptop and so needed reinstalling and the lost file was not really lost if you looked at ‘recent items’ in file explorer, it was just saved in an obscure place.

While I was there I also solved a ‘logon service’ problem (just needed a restart to get the service going again) and downloaded an adware cleaner to speed up another laptop that was running slow.

We then had a chat about life the universe and training for the church and had a cup of coffee and a pray for a shoulder problem.

Then I said “Right time for a photo with the Teds as they are following me everywhere I go.” which was met with a scream as apparently you cannot have your photo taken unless you have washed your hair! Hence the boys got a photo with K, L’s dutiful daughter. Hmmmmmm.

Computer or laptop running slowly? Try this :

Teds listen in

I remember back in the year 2000 that this feeling that God wanted me to be a vicar was not going to go away and needed to be investigated. Work was quite quiet as we had fixed the Millennium Bug so I started to investigate by chatting to a few vicar friends I knew about what it was like to be a vicar.

Nothing has changed and today God is still calling people to be vicars (actually if you want to get technical he is calling people from all over to be all kinds of things) and so that means the need for us who have been around for a few years to have a natter over a cup of tea to those who are at the early stages of their investigation.

As such tonight the Teds met H who came for a natter about life the universe and everything. Some say that God is not real and the church is dying – I don’t think so and H, amongst others, is the proof.

Let us know if you fancy a chat and I’ll put the kettle on.
