I suspect that just banning men from serving in primary is a more common response by stake and ward leaders than we might suspect. It's a really natural response to a risk management issue to just ensure that there is no chance of the risk event occuring. I can't find it online anywhere (although I'...

It also may be a better product or better meet the Church's needs...? :) Perhaps the Church gets a better discount or something with Joel's connections?

I do understand the lag time. I assisted in filing the original paperwork. My issue is that after eight months, we are still getting the same responses from the help desks. We haven't had problems with transmission of MLS data, our issue has been with recognition from technical support. There is a l...

In the building that our stake opened this spring, I asked the FM group to put a shelf next to the panel for the ethernet connections in the building. The ASA5505 and all the other associated hardware sits on that shelf.

That and the whole confidential reports issue seem to be the big problems. There have been a fair number of updates to MLS in the last year or so.

Perhaps we're getting off track here. A discussion of the scope and limitations of the duties of a Stake Technology Specialist probably belongs somewhere else.
