I read the last several posts and recalled some things that were said as the NFS project was announced, and it was not with alot of fanfare either. It was announced at the time they closed Ancestral File to new submissions. What they said about NFS was that it would be a system that would have the b...

Barlin makes a good point. Right now, you only can download the entire thing, that whole book as one single podcast. But podcasting was created so you could send out individual 'episodes' of a show. In this case, the 'episode' would be the chapter from the President Kimball book, with the first week...

That message often has to do with PAF Insight or other third-party software items that remotely access data on familysearch.org. It is used to load-balance the user requests that are going through the servers at any given time. It is only temporary, and often resolves itself rather quickly. Usually ...

Digital signature? Yes in some cases, especially if the form were to be filled out and sent back to Headquarters. But if all you needed was a download of a form to print out, then that would not necessarily be needed as the paper copy would then be sent back to headquarters with a signature. But if ...

They have already done some things over at providentliving.org that have proven useful. One is the employment form a ward employment specialist uses to help a member looking for employment. It is an HTML form. The other helps fill a rotating database of new job openings. The employment specialist fi...

Yes, having a 'media server' is probably the best option in my mind. If you had one in each building, then all the Church would have to do is send updates either via the net or on other media which could then be loaded manually onto the server, then all the person would have to do is bring his lapto...

The people who work at the FamilySearch/FH suport call cente in Orem take calls over landlines, then when they need to communicate with others at CHQ they also use Skype to communicate via PC with some of them.

There's another hurdle to consider as well, and that is that no one wireless provider is in all areas right now, and there are different features on different handsets, or other equipment, and some of those features won't work on many other providers, maybe only the one for the provider that sold th...

Those are all valid concerns. I'm thinking though that the technology will advance where there will be a way to have an electronic version of the six-week planner (and as an aside, there are many who wish that some of the planners out there were as good as the missionary planner, as shown in Preach ...
