A .cvs file should work just fine. If I can't get the age information from there, that's okay. The Bishopric knows who the youth members are, so that'll work. As the Ward Clerk, I should too, but I'm gosh awful with names which is why the age would be nice. Anyway, thanks everyone for the quick resp...

Accessing MLS information externally

I'm curious if it would be possible to access member names in MLS from a separate program? The reason I ask is that I would like to write a little app that can be used to track sacrament meeting assignments and provide Bishopric members information on who has and hasn't prayed or spoken in church. H...

Worth noting

Although PGP is a very effective way of securing your data, please remember that it is intended to keep your data secure while in a powered down state, not necessarily while the computer is running. Most software encryption tools maintain the key in memory, so if your system isn't secure, the key ca...

While I agree that both of these would be useful, I don't think their development would be practical. The development of such a router would take some time, and the resources necessary would additionally drive up cost. Most networked hard drives are well over $100. Add to that the cost of a signific...

I don't see the quoted passage ("Getting root on a Unix box or taking full control of a Windows machine is just a matter of having the patience to find a soft spot in the operating system or one of the applications and then moving up the stack from there.") in the article I see at the supplied URL....

To modify BIOS firmware (now almost all build in flash technology) viruses has to access directly the hardware or use the embedded software. Both operations rely on OS (at least for the installation). Actually, that's not true. A hypervisor can install anything it wants regardless of the OS running...

This study puts the number at 92%. Still an impressive number. Thanks for the update. I knew it was in the 90's area, but I guess I thought it was a little higher. But like you said, still impressive. The biggest problem with trying to run Windows this way is that Administrator is a separate accoun...

Linux is not invincible because we leave in a FUZZY (not bivalent) world. So "everything is a matter of quantity". How many server run Linux? How many windows? How many Linux servers fail under attack, and how many windows servers does? Your resoning could be rigth for desktop market (could be) but...

Not at all, I thought it was very well put. I feel a similar thing is happening on the Firefox v IE front. Every time FF came out then IE would get slaughtered but when FF3 came out and promised huge increase in loading time it felt very "flat" to realise it was only milliseconds. The no 1 reason I...

(Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion, not acting in any official capacity.) I had earlier thought it best to not post any detail lest it be seen as arguing. However, I think it is important that two facts be stated on the topic of security of different operating systems. Expressing one's opinio...
