1. Saying Goodbye to a Great Staffer: Edial
    Please help me wish Edial a wonderful blessed journey as he steps down from CF staff.
    His footprint on our ministry will always remain but his presence will be greatly missed. I'm sure he will come around as a member to all his favorite forums but for now please join me at his profile page to wish him many thanks for the years of service he has brought to us all.
    All of us on CF staff will miss him dearly!!

    Hi :wave:

    I am wondering if the Orthodox Church has a patron Saint for fixing things, or repairing things? I looked around on the net but could not find any information. Thanks!

    Too bad Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman aren't Orthodox, or in a hundred years or so, we might have a couple of Saints of Free Software? (Unmercenaries?) ;)

    It's funny you mention Linux because I'm starting a PC business and I cannot think of a name. This is why I was wondering if there was a Patron Saint of repair.

    Hmmm...a "PC" business. Does that mean computers or that you plan to try not to offend anyone, ever?

    I'm not a big fan of blind "patronage". Read the lives of the saints. Get to know them. Then if a certain saint comes to mind in a certain situation based that relationship, that is one thing. Creating "a list" for people who don't know anything else about that saint is another. Just my 2 cents...

    Good point. I have decided on a name that is non-Saint related, which I think is for the best. Thank you everyone for your input.

    My company is called Eikona IT Services.

    Years ago, I was going to start a company, Extol Data Networking. That one never got started though.

    St. John of San Francisco has always come to my aid whenever my computer or computer-run appliances give me grief.

    France? We'll then he's neither Catholic or Orthodox!

    French are kind of... unique. I used to room with a French guy...nice guy, we bonded quite a bit, we both hate Protestants. :p
