I am in the last fase of my technical course and I need to program a software as an "Course Conclusion Project". I have the idea to create a Resource Center software with the same characteristics of MLS, like appearance and disposition of contents. Obviously I can't submit to the community the soft...

I'm seeing an attractive street price of under $200, but how do you get from the device to DVD? Are you then walking the drive over to a computer? Amazon currently has them listed for $160 right now. Basically, you have the right idea. What I have done in the past is I have recorded the videos usin...

Neuros OSD

I am going to be recommending to our Stake soon to purchase two Neuros OSD devices with two hard drives (we have a Spanish Speaking Branch). I can then take the files recorded by those devices and create DVDs really quick. Having them in a digital format allows me to quickly create them into DVDs wi...

MythTV

My first thought when I saw this idea was to setup a MythTV system (see http://www.mythtv.org/ ). What this would allow you to do is create a backend server that contains all the content, keep it in the library, and then as people need content, they can use a MythTV front-end to show the content. I ...

Google Chrome

Just as it is with other projects that get rushed out the door, Google Chrome is having some issues. (See http://blogs.zdnet.com/security/?p=1858 ). Sadly, these are problems that have affected other browsers in the past. Like most of Google's products, this one is in an early Beta and it needs time...

Sourceforge

I looked at this page but I don't know how to use it to join the project. To be honest, I don't know how to join a project either at this time. I will let you know when more information comes up. There isn't much there right now. I was talking with a friend about the features and such, and his firs...

MythTV solution

Or better yet - but probably far future - a media server in each chapel that hosts a copy of videos, materials, etc... downloaded from Church HQ servers. Then networked classrooms that you can plug a display into and show the appropriate materials in class... I like that idea. One quick way to impl...

Resource Center Tracking System

I am looking for a way to track all the material in our building's resource centers (or library if you wish). We are wanting something along the lines of freeware and something that will work on Windows 98 (sad, I know) or Linux. If there wasn't anything available, I was going to look into making a ...
