Maybe CHQ will eventually be able to be more selective.

MLS 3.2.0 - Backup to File

Before download of MLS version 3.2.0, "backup files" were usually about size, 1,778KB. MLS version 3.2.0 now creates "backup files" with size 642KB. Why such a large difference? Because I'm serving as an Assistant Clerk for Membership Records, am I now only backing up Membership ...

We are aware that during a visit to a specific address by HT, VT or "Bp-ric rep" those who respond to our queries might not be telling us the truth. The very member we're looking for might be standing in front of us and telling us that no such person lives at their address. In this case, H...

Uninterruptable Power Source (UPS)

Two versions ago, we decided to always do clean installs to avoid problems caused by receiving MLS version updates via modem. Continuing in this defensive manner, we've recently added a UPS to make sure we can finish a financial batch and transmit before having to hibernate, due to loss of local ele...
