2006 Communication

April 30th, 2006 by Admin

Honestly, I do not remember each instance my mother and I talked, because we would start talking about something else (and I’d forget to record it!). But here is a list of things we did communicate with her about (after the “first date”):

  • The results of the printer research (which the church later decided not to purchase)
  • My results of internet research (which will be implemented at a later date)
  • The printer server pricing was not relevant; the church decided to attach their existing printer to only one computer.
  • The wireless card pricing was not relevant because the plan to use the elementary school’s wireless fell through. That may have been for the best anyway, since the lab was in the basement of the church (little reception).
  • We found out more about the church programs and how many people made up the congregation.
  • We found out that the existing lab already had a 16-port hub, so buying a new switch wasn’t necessary (or so we thought! )
  • We informed the church of when we’d be there for the second trip.
