Please be careful about condeming the compentency of the Church technology people. This is not our purpose in these forums. Step back and look at the work that has been done to get where we are today with the proportionately smaller manpower resources the Church uses to accomplish significant strid...

If you follow the setup instructions found at the MLS download site (requires username and password that STS should have) there is no requirement to install Desktop 5.5 on a Dell Optiplex 740 - Probably because of the difficulties similar to what you experienced. The Security Suite, Symantec Antivi...

It sounds like you got some support people who were trying, but didn't really know what they were talking about. As I understand it: ⋅ There is a mechanism for pushing updates through LANDesk, but it hasn't been used yet. I would theorize that this is dependent on more units being on broa...

I'll admit I have the same concerns. This is especially true in our Stake Center where the wireless was installed at the time of building construction and is managed/administered by Church headquarters so I can't even do mac filtering. I'm worried the password will get shared beyond where it should ...

Church is also offering a third tier that is even less restrictive. Basically it seems to be equivalent to the filtering that the Family History centers receive. We will choose that for most buildings simply because we want to make sure no BYU content is blocked.

Something you might check is if there are any limits on the service. I've heard that "unlimited" service for mobile phones is limited to 2GB/month. Go beyond that and the service gets canceled. Since this sounds like the same technology, it might be wise to read any contract very carefully. I asked...

One of our buildings might have to go this route for the same reasons. My question is what has been your experience with the Sprint service so far? Data rates you are actually gettting? I'm skeptical but might have no choice for this newer building as it was built in a lightly populated area, but do...

I'm curious what part of Georgia you are in. BellSouth was recently bought out by Southwestern Bell (SBC), ... er ... AT&T so there may still be some things in transition. When I went to att.com and used an Atlanta ZIP code (30301) to set my location, I got this information for residential DSL Dire...

Well, all of you should count yourselves lucky. Here in Georiga AT&T will give you dry loop but you pay more for it than having a phone line included. Xilec has been a big help in getting things started but also unfortunately in Georgia AT&T is insisting on a business rate. That means we will be pay...

This is unfortunate. It will severely limit the kinds of help I can give as over an hour is a long ways to go to give support. They may have to call someone directly in those wards to do the support.
