I'm not too surprised that I came up as some sort of a tech since I've been doing a lot of tech work at the church recent. This gives me techie instincts, and I know what a gobo is.

In fact, this weekend we had the most technically challenging event since I joined the crew a few years ago. The church (Wheaton Bible Church) ended its capital campaign for the funds to build a new building on a (IMHO) very nice piece of property just North of North Avenue near Carol Steam by having a single combined service in a tent yesterday (Sunday May 15, 2005). Doing this quiz/meem reminded me of a couple of tales. I served as part of the volunteer crew who ran the technical production (with the two church staff people responsible for the tech work). Specifically I sat backstage running the videos and graphics.

At one point during rehearsal on Saturday, a tremendous amount of feedback was heard for a second or so. After it stopped I noticed that I had instinctively removed my headphones -- which were actually the headset for the com system. I then looked over at the two sound techs working on the mix for the recordings and the "family tents" and noticed that one still had is headphones on. Fortunately for him, he was not listening to the channel that fed back, or he might have had hearing damage.
