Also, just because you are more tech-minded than others, doesn't mean everyone is as distracted as you are. Exactly. That was one of the points I was trying make in the second post. Is it possible to be tech-minded to the degree that you can make constructive changes or suggestions but not to the d...

Maybe us techies have an added challenge when it comes to the tech world crossing over into the domain of spiritual things. Many folks can sit through a presentation blissfully unaware that tech is going on, but if you're like me, you're wondering what model of projector they're using or where they'...

Too Much Tech?

I recently noticed that the media presentation at one of our places of worship is now in surround sound. I think they have been fiddling with the settings now for several months. Most people probably don't notice or care, but I did. Sometimes I am not looking for a totally immersive media experience...

Ildasm didn't find any recognizable header information in those dll's. I think the door might be closed to us for developing something around the electronic text on the Church-distributed CD, but you can find more information about Wordcruncher at: url=http://wordcruncher.byu.edu/wordcruncher/ Other...

How do you tie into the CD version? Is there some API you can call when the CD version is installed locally? Are you referring to the CD version the Church distributes? Yes, it's the version distributed by the Church. As far as I can tell there are three dll's: VPgmEN.dll, VProdEN.dll, and VPub.dll...

Re: The Crab

I got the EJ-2 Plus.

My mantra over the years has become: if the meetinghouse library has one, I'll be needing one.

I think the CD version to which I keep referring is closely tied to Hamilton-Locke's Wordcruncher software. The viewer is "free," but to get the added functionality that we're talking about, you'd need at least the writer module, and that's $1000. Maybe our Odn friend represents Hamilton-L...

In order to use it offline I would have to get the Churches permission to store the HTML stripped files locally since the material is copyrighted. I'm not sure if that would happen. If they didn't allow it, the project might as well be an online only thing - if we can take the files and store them ...

It's cool how the forum site can fix typos like that. It's called repentance, and I've been doing it a lot lately on this forum. Like repentance, if you catch your typo quickly enough, you can fix it without too many people noticing. However, if you wait to edit your post, you get a nice little &qu...

This talk about the PA systems reminds me that when our building was remodeled and fitted with a new system, we got an adapter box that let us plug an unbalanced input such as CD player or DVD audio into a balanced mic jack. This box came in handy for playing ambient music in the multipurpose room. ...
