The Global Service Desk link is still broken (at least for those of us outside the Church network -- my guess is that the URL http://magic/selfsupport/servicedesk.php would work inside the Church network, and that is why Church employees don't see the problem).

Personal Ancestral Files : There should be no "s" in the last word -- it is simply "Personal Ancestral File." Also, the word "genealogy" is misspelled as "genealgoy"

BO : "BusinessObjects" should not have a space between the two words (see http://www.sap.com/solutions/sapbusinessobjects).

CSV still refers to "ascidia" which is a genus of sea squirts. Try ASCII instead. But CSV doesn't technically have to be ASCII, so that's not really correct anyway.

Many of the terms in the acronyms page are explained well in the wiki. Just as some of the definitions link to Wikipedia, wouldn't it be helpful to link those clerk-related definitions to more extensive wiki articles?

Interesting. I took that directly from an internal acronym finder we use.

GIDS : There is an extra "to" in the definition. Also, the definition seems to refer to what has come to be known as LDS Account. Is that correct? If so, the definition should be updated to mention that.

Should this whole page be on the wiki?

This page has plenty of overlap with the Glossary wiki page, although the glossary does go far beyond simple abbreviations.

But putting it on the wiki would simplify editing and extending it. Is that good or bad? It seems good to me. If we did move it, should we merge it with Glossary, or keep it as a separate article, perhaps "LDS Tech Acronyms"?
