Why donate to PTM?

We support those who do God's work. We offer websites and technical consulting at prices that let churches and ministries save hundreds or thousands of dollars. These savings can then go into their ministry, rather than into the pocket of a for profit technical company. Technical Services aren't cheap but they are necessary. That's why PTM was founded - to give churches and Ministries an economical alternative.
 
Won't you help us continue to provide thse services? Right now, we are just making enough to pay our expenses. Our staff is currently all part-time volunteers but if we could afford a full-time staff, we could help many more churches and non-profits than we can now. You can make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation. Even $5 or $10/month would help!
 
 We know times are tough. But they're even tougher for non-profits and churches. By donating to us, you can help us help dozens, maybe even hundreds, of ministries!
 
 

PTM Hails FCC Ruling on Net Neutrailty

Pittsburgh Tech Ministry is delighted at the FCC ruling protecting Net Neutrality by declaring the Intenet a Public Utility! This will protect the openness of the internet and allow small companies and innovators to continue offer new and unique services without being priced out of the fast lanes by the "big boys." Without Net Neutrality we wouldn't have the internet we have today. Thank you FCC for listening to the millions of people who sent emails, letters, etc!

Cool Tools Spotlight

Omni Outliner

Type: 
commercial
Platform: 
Mac
Omni Outliner by The Omni Group is one of my favorite programs - and no - I don't know of an equivalent program for Windows. I have however, seen many requests for one especially from people who use Mac at home and Windows at work. So what is it? Its an outline on a grid - kind of a cross between a word processor in outline mode and a spreadsheet - only better! If you are the kind of person who likes - or needs - to get organized, its a great tool. If you spec out things to do, or need to organize things like who will do what task and by when and whether or not its completed - its a great tool. You can easily add in more items at any level without messing up all the formatting and having everything go weird on you like in a word processor. Its easy to indent and doesn't mess things up to add in another level - like on a spreadsheet. And it's easy to use and easy to learn.

Most users don't have to worry about that because they don't change the software - they just use it. The "community" is the developer community that wrote the software and which continues to update it and make improvements to it.
