Again I'm a little confused. It sounds like your idea is that anyone can translate, while I'm suggesting that the system be limited to those the Stake President or Bishop approve. The idea is to get programs, announcements and other local documents translated. I assumed that a different access syst...

... I don't know if others will think this is useful. The Mormon Translation wiki does some of this already, and I've already had a request from the person responsible for translation in our stake to look into setting up a version for our stake. What do the rest of you think? Is this a worthy proje...

I kind of think you are both mistaken. My impression was that Church IT is putting something together for the LUWS, not MLS. It didn't appear to me that the project was dead either. I got these impressions from this thread: http://tech.lds.org/forum/showthread.php?t=141 I agree entirely with this. ...

As of today I am leaning in that direction. I likely will do so within a week or so. ODBC and its cousin OLEDB would be my choice. The question is what ODBC/OLDEB should connect to. (Actually, even my current VBScripts use ODBC. They connect to Microsoft's native Jet 4.0 engine, which allows me to ...

I would prefer NOT to open new threads for each bug but rather keep them in one thread. It makes it tougher to discuss other items with so many "1 post" threads. So I would ask that you do one of two things: 1. Either post all to one thread. 2. Or even better, batch your posts so that one post has ...

I think if I were to take on the task of creating a real application, I would convert the VBScript to Visual Basic for the front end, and use a public-domain SQL engine on the back end. That would require installing one or more .dlls. It also is more work than I really want to take on immediately, ...

...After working with OTSS technicians we determined that power grid interruptions in the area cause momentary power loss, a second or less, which in turn cause faulty operation of the PIX. There is a program in the PIX called websense that provides the filtering. It can be knocked offline and the ...

Well, this is a concern. I would not want to have folks trying to access inappropriate sites just to find out that websense on the PIX is not working. Is there a better way to know when websense gets knocked out? Or is a reboot of the PIX after a thunderstorm a better way to go? If your power is an...

That's what I am asking for -- an official statement. CuriousGIS mentioned above that CHQ would not release its own GIS file formats of the maps created there. CHQ's practice instead is to send printed maps and .pdf files to local units for the asking. CuriousGIS also implied, without citing an aut...

I thought that's why Linksys came out with the WRT54GL - to allow open source. However, one question that should be asked is how hard would it be for the next STS to support a Open Source router as opposed to a "normal" one? All of the older Linksys routers (pre 5.0) run Linux, with a Linksys UI. d...
