We used the fifth Sunday in September for have a combined Relief Society / Priesthood meeting to 'introduce' what is available to the members (and non-members). I emphasized 'ministering' vs. 'administering' (see Alma 22:23-25). I tried to cover much more than just the logged in accessible items (di...

We have done our first stake conference broadcast with pretty good success. I am a counselor in a branch that is 85 miles from the stake center which is why we started to do this. We have a bilingual stake, with two Spanish speaking units and our branch which is bilingual (about 30% Spanish and 70% ...

I have not yet set this up, which do you recommend? The electrician will wire whatever I ask him to do. I would like to be able to control it from a laptop. If I don't have to buy a Sony RM-BR300 I don't want to. That's one expensive controller. I had another suggestion earlier in this thread (May ...

I use Excede for my personal internet. So far, my experience has been acceptable. Having said that, if I had other choices, I would use them. I have used satellite internet in the past with marginal to poor success, but so far, Excede seems to have solved many of those issues. There are several limi...

One possible downside to combining schedules for RS/HP/EQ is that in many wards, the first week lesson may not be the same for all the auxiliaries. The auxiliary leader can be given the responsibility for selecting the topic for that day. For example, I have seen a High Priests group focus on home t...

You might want to consider using RS422 even if the cable length is 'close' to being too long, since it will be much more reliable. Or you could use the suggestion I made in another thread and use a RS232 to Ethernet or RS232 to WIFI adapter and connect the control signal into the building network. T...

I would like to get a third party opinion on our brand new ward website. What issues may we have here? Just a comment about your page. I noticed that the picture on your home page and at least one other page appears to have the official church logo on it. From what I understand, that can only be us...
