Re: New "directory".... a step back in usability

The new "directory" (really a way of bludgeoning some poorly-functioning directory functionality into the maps site) is a disaster. The rather reasonable printing / PDF export options from the old site are replaced by a print function which is useless. It won't print last names, it takes l...

Re: Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

Thought I should finish the story of what happened here. I informed a whole bunch of filtering companies ( malwarebytes , mcafee , norton , kaspersky , I think at least one other) about the false positive, and they all quickly reviewed it and unblocked the DDNS domain. Zscaler, which provides the Ch...

Re: Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

Looks like if I just provide the url with the my home IP address rather than using the DNS name it works just fine through both the Church filter and Malwarebytes; the overkill in the domain name space apparently doesn't extend to trying to find and block all the 22600 unrelated IPs associated with ...

Re: Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

yeah, the 'someone mistakenly blocked *.twilightparadox.com rather than unrelated_problematic_subdomain.twilightparadox.com' idea occurred to me before. I thought FreeDNS (which manages this and a bunch of other domains) was one of the most popular and well-known dynamic DNS sources. This domain nam...

Re: Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

Here's the warning in question: https://drive.google.com/open?id=15MqrJK70Co5p5ctVcVHL9U606dm_NVWS . The actual url people are trying to visit is the rot13 of srneyrff.gjvyvtugcnenqbk.pbz/choyvp_jjj/lfn259/pubve/ - I know it's silly to do that but these forum pages get indexed by Google &c and I...

Re: Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

Dropbox, google drive, etc will host a file but not a website. Having a simple handcoded page for each song and using the <audio> element allows people to choose an individual part (SATB etc) to listen to while looking at lyrics &c. I'm quite certain people were able to access my page from churc...

Home server blocked by filter - what can I do?

I'm a ward choir director, and I wanted to make recordings, sheet music, etc available to choir members on the web (nobody wants to deal with physical copies of things anymore, sadly). I don't have my own domain name or any nice hosting setup, so I used a freedns subdomain to point people to a home ...

Re: Address verification: why not get some help?

OK, I wasn't aware Leader and Clerk Resources had this kind of capability, and I'm sure neither the ward clerk nor the membership clerk are aware of it either. I'll mention it to them. Anything I can point them to that documents that this capability exists or tells them how to use it? Though I appre...

Address verification: why not get some help?

I'm in an elders quorum presidency and have been frustrated with address problems in our ward records. Too many addresses are entered incorrectly and don't correspond to any actual street address. Even in cases where the address is correct the formatting is wrong in ways that confuse those trying to...

No need to use commercial programs unless we're sure we've found one that's actually superior (and we aren't already satisfied by results we're getting from free tools). Audacity already allows you to change a frequency smoothing factor to have "bands" as narrow as will work with their tra...
