Thread-topic: [CRTech] Equipment bugs just before pledge drive.

To all experiencing problems you are in my prayers. We all know, but sometimes forget that our God is the master of all technology. He knows the tech better than the people who think they created it and He is ready and able to get it working.


I pray our Lord bless all stations on this list and give special protection to those who are raising funds. Lord, I pray you give their staff members and volunteers Your peace.


On the good news side, we had our fundraising drive the first week of October and met our goal. And we had no noticeable tech issues.


I shouldn’t gloat, but I will. The local NPR station had their fundraising the same week. Their goal was about 2/3 of ours and they missed it by quite a bit. The last number I heard was a few hours before they ended and they were at less than 3/4 of their goal.


So we remember that God is the one in control and He has the resources to keep His ministry going. Even if you do not reach your goal, know that God is with you and will keep His ministry going.


Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,  who daily bears our burdens. Psalm 68:19


Have a great weekend in Him!

(Yes, I'm venting) This is going to probably sound pretty normal, but we are heading into our pledge drive next week and yes, at 4pm yesterday, our Voice Track/On-Air Backup computer decided it needed a new CPU fan AND a new power supply. After making those repairs, I also had to re-seat the PCIe sound card in another slot so it would show up, which also meant I had to reassign all my audio paths in Zetta. Somewhere in that process, I clicked the wrong thing and somehow took over control of the on-air computer and took the audio off the air. Not knowing what I did, it took the Zetta people almost 30 mins to figure out how to reset it. This morning I had to call them again because I had no record input to the voice track program. These are not things I have time for!!!!!
