Hearing about your job in conference

One of the neatest tidbits from conference (for me) was hearing President Hinckley talking about the new genealogy software. That's the project that I work on, and this was the first time I've been in a position to hear the prophet talking about my day to day work during conference. It sure left me feeling excited to get in to work on Monday.

On a related note, we're still looking for some good technical people. I'll try to blog a bit about what's going on here, and lay out some more information about the kinds of people we're looking for.

"Brother" Eyeler, your pridefullness (if that is a word) converns me. blogs are all about ego and 'getting ahead'.

do you reall need this? do you really need two homes? do you really need a camera phone and all the worldy things you now accumulate?

Close this blog. return to your faith. repent.

The church dispanded your former ward due to corruption. You are part of the problem!!

Stop! focus. EVERYTHING you author reaks with personal superiority.

being Mormon is not about you!!

even your blog picture! trying to look like Bringham Young? such disrepct.

Well if that comment isn't a silly piece of satire -- it's a good facsimile of one.

I was excited to hear Pres. Hinckley mention this project and hope it works well -- it will not only save duplication of effort, but will help with the Church's PR efforts.

To anonymous:
Who gave you the right to judge Pat, or anyone for that matter? You obviously don't know Pat very well. Pat is a very "behind the scenes" kind of guy and does an enormous amount of work for any one man.
As far as worldy things are concerned, do you "really need" a computer to criticize those that are trying to put out a way for us to communicate about our beliefs. Let me guess, you give in a cave and the only worldly posession you have is a computer.
Matthew 7:3-5
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

John 8:7
He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone...
