If the Church's CD-ROM-based product would work... The scriptural text and footnotes are there, just need to figure out the file format and come up with a more powerful viewer. I would prefer to have my notes on my local machine, where I can easily make multiple backups. I like to read the scriptur...

Let you see comments from friends and friends see your comments. My personal set of scriptures is full of annotations that I have written in the margins.

If you could explain what a non-MLS user might do on the computer, I would appreciate it. Troopmaster or Scoutmate software for tracking Boy Scout rank advancement. Calendar Creator. By the way, I think there might be a need for an LDS-specific calendar program...something with LDS clip art, and re...

During idle time we could have the ward computer access the genealogical database to determine the level of cousin-hood between any two members of that particular ward, for all members of the ward. Knowing how closely we are related could enhance our interactions with each other. For example: if I k...

Proxy access to blocked sites...causing a slight delay Doesn't MStar's filtering service employ proxy access to cleared sites, with staff on-hand to pre-browse URL requests that don't yet appear in the database? How long would the delay be if a site did not appear on the cleared or the prohibited l...

...decide for themselves Most people would say they are installing the filter for their children's sake, but assuming that at least five percent of otherwise good dads have a problem, and even a few moms, I would want to recommend a solution that didn't have an override option.

Recommending Internet Filters to Church Members

The Relief Society president in my old ward once asked me if I would address the sisters on the issue of blocking pornography on home computers during a special meeting.

What if the library specialist in the unit isn't ready for a computer? About computers in the gospel study classroom, if you had gone to a lot of trouble to build a Powerpoint presentation, how much pride would you have invested in it, and what would you do when the Spirit tells you to abandon the w...

Archives of stake conferences, regional conferences, etc... could also be included. Searching these archives could be enhanced by incorporating notes taken by the stake clerk: the speaker's name, date of the address, perhaps a brief outline of the address.
