Aside from the fact that the patriarch may want company, unless the blessing was given recently, patriarchs send the official copies of their blessings to CHQ on a regular basis and do not keep copies of them after CHQ verifies that they have received them.

But my twisted clerk's mind says there is much to be said for a central mailing to the whole ward -- not just for delivering the message content, but for the practical purpose of putting all MLS addresses th...

A quick look in Windows Media Encoder would seem to indicate that you will need at least 1 Mbps for DVD video (640/480, 30FPS) and at least 5 Mbps for HD (1080/720, 30FPS). So, I guess it depends on how much resolution you want. Also, you might be able to ring a little more quality out of your bandw...

For example it is not easy to ...

I notice that the forum does not yet have an audio captcha. I think that comes in the next version. Any idea when we might be seeing that feature?
