5093Re: [fhctech] Inventory of FHC Computers
- Jun 2, 2003You will find the inventory request, along with attachments for the
instructions and the necessary software, on the unit email account at
webmail.ldsmail.net, so if the director does not check that account
regularly he/she may not know about it yet.
I know the stake clerks for computers have recently received a couple of
directives asking them to make sure there is no unlicensed software on any
of the computers in the stake. The inventory software the Church is sending
will make a report of both hardware and software, so part of the reason may
be to make sure we are "clean".
