But back to the issue at hand. I can send/receive changes. Then make one single change (say a spelling correction), then send/receive changes again, and its very slow.

And sending/receiving after the clerks count donations is getting longer and longer.

Well, it is my responsibility to interpret. If I am misinterpreting, I apologize. We all have to do what we have to do. I just ask that you be cautious. I feel your points can be made in more of a constructive fashion; Probably. I just personally don't know how though. I tend to be direct in all de...

I also ask you not be so assuming and negative about the development practices and technologies currently in use at the Church. It was meant as constructive. And, this is *how* I talk and *am* in real life. Perhaps that alone will keep me out of heaven. I'm sure it will make for an interesting deba...

If that is how you wish to interpret it.

Its certainly not my intention.

Its an obervation across an entire district, nothing more.

You should not make assumptions about those whose role yours is to moderate :)

heh, I should hope you could not push test data to a live database. But he asked about installing it, not pushing data to CHQ.

You are assuming that everything should have been solved using technology that is available today. Remember, we have MASSIVE amounts of data that we carry forward. Changing everything over to use MySQL is a HUGE undertaking at the Church. rsync ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rsync ) was wrote way b...

Recursive database synch?

[edit]Hrmm, I didn't mean "recursive"[/edit] I've noticed that doing send/receive from MLS gets progressively slower as the weeks/years pass by. With the original initial install it was very fast. Each week thereafter it has gotten progressively slower to send/receive changes, even when th...

I think you misunderstood what I meant. MLS uses a proprietary windows application (not written in java) to talk with CHQ. This application (not written by Microsoft) manages creating the connection, transferring the data, verifying transfer status, closing the connection, etc. Yes, it could be rep...
