I talked with project management a little earlier today, since I had been out of the loop with some of the new developments. Someone else will be creating a new post to clarify the project, but let me just summarize it here. The LDS Tech article about the meetinghouse internet should not have been w...

* All users must use LDS logon or Family Search logon if not a member - no exceptions. I believe that access is generally restricted to members, but there are provisions for guest access. The guest will have to be "sponsored" by a member, and I think there will need to be some kind of approval by a...

For those of you who have still not wiped their hard drives, let me give a little piece of advice that will save a lot of time. You may have heard on the internet or elsewhere that you need to wipe a hard drive multiple times for it to be "really" erased. This is completely false. The theory that da...

The question is, is it permissible? Prior policy did mention a specific report software for "diagnostic purposes". The current policy omits any mention of remote software, but it does say "No other software should be purchased or installed on Church computers unless it is approved by the stake pres...

Thank you for doing this. I feel like the reason so many questions comes from the idea of us being network engineers and being security minded. I work on an enterprise network and so we are looking at all aspects of networking and security. So when I hear that the wireless being wide open it is a p...

Our computer takes so long to boot up that leaders have requested that it be left on (not logged in). And somehow I just can't picture a unit's full MLS finance reporting functionality available online. From what I understand, MLS functionality will eventually become web-based. I was told that long...

I'll quote kxcd and say "Eventually, arguing that these things work means arguing that modern capitalism isn't THAT ruthlessly profit-focused." ;) I love xkcd, but you'll have to tell me which comic that came from. I don't remember that quote :) I have to apologize. I just realized that I had gotte...

If you dig though the documents made public as part of the MS anti-trust legal action, you'll find that the church explored trying to do just that. But because of the way MS licenses to OEMs, they can not sell existing models without paying for a Windows license. I think they'd have to create a new...

Since there seems to be a lot of questions and confusion about this new system, here is what I'll do: Next time I talk to the rest of the project team, I'll see if I can learn more about the networking side of the project, along with getting some of these questions answered. After that, I will start...

It turns out that sessions expire when you go from https to http . There's a fix planned for this that will be implemented in Q1 of 2012. If you don't cross from https to http, the max session timeout is 10 hours. Idle timeout is 60 minutes. Right now, all the parts of lds.org that are SSO (single ...
