Re:

I'm reminded of a story that a finance clerk once told about how his Bishop wanted the budget broken down to scrutinize how much money each auxiliary was spending on every little detail... like paper for the Young Men, paper for the Primary, paper for the Elders, etc.. Then cookies for the Young Me...

881W firewall not showing up on Technology Manager

I really like Technology manager. One question, though. We can view three of our 881W firewalls on tm.lds.org, but another of them is not showing up. Anyone know why that might be the case?

Re: FAQ for Supporting New Youth Curriculum Digital Media

To the people in charge of curriculum: Please print a full teacher's manual and make DVDs available which include all of the recommended media content.

Sorry but this last reply sounds too much like a shill for Sophos. If you are talking about their great track record of making machines unusable then I'm with you. If you are talking about their great track record of declaring their own update system a virus, then I'm with you. Otherwise, I pretty ...

This is very much like what I was getting while trying to discover why the Sophos system tray icon was missing on our administrative computer running Windows XP. I tried installing Sophos on top of the current installation but got install errors. Since I had not received reports from any other of t...

Microsoft Security Essentials

Sophos is a real system resources hog. Since the machines in our stake are low on CPU speed and RAM, running Sophos really slows things down. In contrast, from my experience at home, Microsoft Security Essentials does not slow down your computer much. I don't know if it is as strong a barrier to inf...

The FixIssues clears the quarantine list, but autoupdate remains nonfunctional (the Sophos shield icon in the system tray remains missing). I think it's because FixIssues is supposed to download deleted Sophos files, but they are not available from our computers, maybe because our updates come from ...

Is that legal for use in a church setting? I see it's not allowed for commercial use, but I couldn't find a license without downloading the product. Here is the relevant text. I just use it at home. I don't think that the license would prevent you from using it at church... 1. GRANT OF LICENSE. a) ...

They still rely on wireless, when doing events, one of the primary steps to success is to eliminate wireless to limit issues related to bandwidth being taken by numbers of members in attendance. I don't disagree that it can be useful in circumstances, but I'd never want to upload or download stake ...

It's worked great for me both at church and at home. You need to have both devices plugged into the same power circuit. YMMV, but it's definitely worth a try. The old 85 Mbps adapters are really cheap now, and they are plenty fast enough for church use.
