Church

Return to Home Page

A am a member of Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville. Recently (February 1, 2002) I became Head Usher for the church. So what is an old Information Systems hack supposed to do when he takes on a new job like being head usher? He figures out a way to automate the scheduling and coordination process.

The link below points to a web page that I use to publish the usher schedule. I created a Microsoft Access database of ushers, and a table with the upcoming service schedule. I can very easily update the database, and then all ushers can check the page to see when they have to usher. It was all writen in VB Script using ASP (Active Server Pages) on my web server in the office.
