Re: New Internet Filter

Received updated email indicating that alternate DNS will be filtered sometime after April 21st. It also indicated that requests for new sites to be allowed are to be filtered though the STS rather then through a link provided by the block screen. I will be surprised if this actually changes anythi...

Re: LDS Account Authentication for Accessing Building Intern

I would quite happily do that. Most bishops I know are nice reasonable chaps, if one has a bit of a god complex that is his problem ;) I am sure they would understand that the church was just taking precautions, and as this would come down from the top I'm sure he would oblige. I may not have been c...

Re: New Internet Filter

The fhc sites are a good point. The rest I think people could either live without or use their 3g connection on their phones. For church employees on the road they should already have a 3g dongle for their laptop anyway. After all we all lived without access to our emails at church a few years ago. ...

Re: Wireless Access Points as Sensor Network

I can pull up the MAC list on our access point without logging in to any admin interface. You could also sniff them from the air if you are really sneaky. I think your idea sounds a bit dodgy though, people would be mad if they found out they were being tracked around the site. Do you work for Googl...

Re: LDS Account Authentication for Accessing Building Intern

Looks like mike knows his stuff there, it really frustrates me that the church doesn't seem to have the technical staff capable of implementing good tech. I am guessing the original WiFi signin project failed because the church didn't want to drop radius servers on their network and effectively crea...

Re: New Internet Filter

I'm guessing this has been suggested and there is a good reason for not doing it.... but shouldn't the internet access be limited to the IP addresses of lds.org and other church sites, plus Microsoft for windows updates? Then it doesn't matter what the DNS settings are. The church is currently open ...

Re: Any efforts for Windows 8 applications?

Sooooo many bugs, no updates, no magazines beyond may 2013. Pretty awful navigation. What is going on? Give me the source code, I will fix it faster than this!

Re: LDS Tools not accepting my user name & password

You are a genius! It worked, just signed in to lds.org as you said and went to calendar. I am guessing that the app can't handle the popup I had to click on using the website.

Re: Any efforts for Windows 8 applications?

Come on guys, just send me the sourcecode for the apps, i am sure i can move things along faster than the snails pace we are getting from the church. I have offered to help in the past, only to be ignored. Its not like these are complex apps, just textual display. Something needs to move before some...

Re: LDS Tools not accepting my user name & password

Same problem here. It was working on my htc 8x and now i log in and it says downloading info, then after download it says an error has occurred please try again.

There doesnt appear to be any way to help on the windows phone projects. I would be happy to troubleshoot and do some bug fixes.
