Yep, but according to Brother, none of the drivers for that printer were ever signed.

Installing unsigned drivers

A few years ago, a ward purchased a Brother MFC All-in-One laser printer for the clerk's office, mainly so they could make copies of receipts without having to use the library copier on the far side of the building. Because of the new paperless finance system, they asked if I could install the scann...

I still have some Netgear consumer routers repurposed as AP's working in a couple of my buildings. They were installed back when we first got permission to have WiFi in buildings.

Re: Moving MLS access to another computer

Note that the Security Token reset can only be done when support is open. Typically, that doesn't include Sundays. (Maybe Sunday night when Australia starts their workday.) They have a limited crew there on Sunday, starting around 5 pm Mountain Time, mostly to reset MLS tokens and other minor help....

Re: Clerk Computer Provisioning / No Sophos

I would leave it be. If Sophos turned the firewall off, then it has replaced it with something else.

Re: Meetinghouse Internet Problems

These forums appear dead... Not yet. The forums are more active then they've ever been. ...all three buildings (2 with Comcast, 1 with ATT dsl ) have this nearly useless internet connection.

Re: Computer Startup Time

I was notified recently that our stake clerk PC was running slow and asked if there was anything I could do. Once it completely booted up, it ran fine. I didn't trace it down to Sophos (which doesn't surprise me), I just put a note on it to logout when finished, but leave it running. That seemed to ...

Re: Erasing hard drives with BleachBit

It is possible that the church has some system set up for recycling old equipment - I would expect the FM group would know if anyone does as they are the ones who change out unit computers. Yes, I'm referring to the recyclers the FM Groups are contracted with. The fact is, the hard drive isn't ours...

Re: Erasing hard drives with BleachBit

The ability to wipe a drive you booted from isn't covered in the BleachBit documentation, so we have to assume it was written by the church. I think their assumption was if all the folders that can be shredded are shredded, the only thing left is the OS, which doesn't have any sensitive data. Obviou...
