But I'd like to see this idea expanded - content available based on callings.
I was ecstatic to find beta.tech.lds.org today. I've begged both MSR support and CCN for more documentation about policies and procedures. Their help has been very limited -- frankly, unsatisfactory. I thought this site would be the answer. Though still encouraged to find tech people working for the church, I don't find much more documentation about what matters to me.
I'm the stake tech specialist. I am very capable of implementing the latest and greatest tech stuff. But, I'm sensitive to the fact that, at least on the East coast, the Church is very conservative about rolling out new tools.
I'm in the process of upgrading all administrative computers to Desktop 5.5. In an email from MSR support about the slowness of modem transmit and receive, they suggested more RAM but also casually touched on using the DSL connection. I had NO idea that this was permitted, despite the 'Internet use policy' that came with the upgrade procedures.
My point is that I'm in dire need of documentation about what is permitted and suggested with regards to my calling as stake tech specialist. I am particularly concerned about the administration of MLS (admin) computers. I wholeheartedly believe that I have outdated policy and guidelines. More frustratingly, this 'policy' is in the form of piecemeal memoranda which I found in a drawer at the stake office.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a list of effective publications, guidelines, and policies accessible via the web. I feel that the calling of Stake Tech Specialist would especially benefit from this type of resource, as technology changes rapidly.
Perhaps there exists such a site already. As other threads mention, the stake website has a few (outdated?) notes. But, I don't believe these notes are accessible outside the US, if that matters. I'm in Georgia.
Thanks for any thoughts, suggestions, or work towards this end.
