They call him Dr Paul

It’s pretty lame when you have to reference a They Might Be Giants song to come up with a title… but what can you do. Two last phone calls from Dr Paul – more emails will be posted tomorrow.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

  1. Nathan, this is hilarious, particularly #3. Not a very effective crime fighting method, but I can fully understand the attraction.

    When Phil E had his FB hacked and they tried that chat scam on me, which was a hoot, but this even better.

    Sound quality of Dr Acquah is pretty poor though, is it skype/iphone/ or landline you’re using and what are you doing to record?

  2. I use my iPhone’s “voice memo” tool to record the loudspeaker of my other phone. There’s not much I can do about sound quality, I’ve tinkered around with it in audacity to get it to the point where he’s almost understandable. But he has a very thick accent and talks pretty fast and there’s not much I can do about that.

  3. In the “how geeky are you” stakes — for future calls you could set up a skype account for the email you’re using (or another voip/softphone combo) and use the record function.

    Or even geekier, use a linux server with Asterisk (Open Source PBX) and route your call through that – you can get this in pre-fab “trixbox”
