Great weather, great God

Aug 07, 2009 in Personality

All this great weather gives me reason to sing, and so I recorded a quick worship set that lasts about 10 minutes. Of course, it took several hours to edit on Roxio VideoWave, because the program kept crashing at the most inopportune moments (also, it does strange things with moving video titles.) Lift your hands and worship with me, to the video below.

Live worship from my in-laws’ porch

I left some musical space at the end for you to respond to the Holy Spirit in prayer and thanksgiving from your own heart. After all, He wants to hear what’s on your mind. I’m just here to help provide some “atmosphere”.

People need to be TOLD?

Jul 28, 2009 in Society

This society scares me. Just the other day I went to my friendly neighbourhood Save-On Foods to pick up some milk, eggs, cheese, lunch meat, and several bags of chips: potato, taco, and sun. For a change of pace, I went through the Changes Recycling Centre in the middle of the store.

My eye caught a sign plastered to the middle of the door, at the level of my nose, advising customers that they would not accept any bags with ants in them.
I was at first shocked, because in B.C. the correct protocol when returning recyclables is to be sure to rinse them first. Did customers really need to be told to look out for ants?

Attention Customers: Changes recycling is not accepting bags containing ants.

tonychung.ca blog design 2007 to 2009

tonychung.ca blog design circa 2007 to 2009

It’s already June. I haven’t redesigned this site yet. At the time of writing it still uses the original theme I installed back in 2007. At the same time, I have also developed ideas for several blog entries that I believe many will find helpful to reconcile issues of life, faith, and vocation. I’ve started 26 draft posts and have a handwritten journal for two more. I’ll be completing these draft posts over time, so bear with me. Right now there is too much life to live to be able to dedicate any time to this blog.

We all stream for ustream.tv

Aug 22, 2008 in Creativity, Personality, Technology

As part of my volunteer activity for the Society for Technical Communication – Canada West Coast chapter, I offered to evaluate some streaming video technology we may use to kick off our program meeting in September. Since the spring of 2008, we branded ourselves as a virtual chapter, and shifted our focus from face-to-face meetings to online communities like a forum and wiki attached to our web site. One area we had yet to try was the notion of live video streaming. You can’t get more virtual than live video. On a recommendation from Bruce Sharpe, I explored ustream.tv tonight, and I got hooked. In 20 minutes I joined ustream.tv, set up a channel, and broadcast my first video from a webcam connected to my laptop. I even recorded a clip, if you’d care to look….
