    I escaped the tower before they had windows. I went to an old style hall that had windows. But they didnt have any computers to put the windows in.

    I think the softwear games are the ones to be found found in a Kingdumb Hall and for use on a very rainy day but they would be theocratically biased of course.Once loaded they would have ------

    Games such as "Buckaroo." This would be for the players to stick on to the mule as many as 12 new light segments without making the mule buck.

    "Operation." This would involve taking body parts out with tweezers without making the buzzer sounding and making everyone jump.The theocratic version would be played while a simulated blood transfusion was taking place on the pretend patient with the red nose.

    "Monopoly." Would keep them entertained for hours. New World edition would differ somewhat for instead of collecting houses and hotels they would collect bible studies. The Governing Body being the banker means the players have to pay all money back to Brooklyn ; every time they passed go instead of the players being paid the GB would receive payment.Water works would be counted as baptisms, electric company would be new light each time they stoppped on the square.Go straight to jail would be for refusing millitary service unless they have a get out of jail free card, you get that by promising to do alternative service.No free parking space, you land there a during an assembly but pay Brooklyn the fee.The players would need to stop on a railway station in order to travel to the assemblies.Pay income tax square is ignored as we all know The Watchtower don't do that sort of thing. Chance cards and community cards would throw up such things as : You have been found guilty at a judiciary be shunned pay all your money back. ,Property repairs mean a large bill to pay for Kingdom hall rennovation, You gain a large inheritance give directly to GB.You have returned your ministry hours form in and it's padded (not a disfellowshipping offense) miss a turn.You owe Bethel a large some of money for literature which means no new books and mags this in turn means no bible studies until you throw a double six.

    Thank God it's only a wet day dream.

    i'm sure there are geek elders that maintain fancy excel spreadsheets, or sql datbases but i don't think there is a WT approved or proprietary software that they run or mandate.

    Not WT sanctioned software, but it is still used by many techie dubs...

    Some examples :

    The Pocket Library Assistant for Windows Mobile

    A free tool for Jehovah's Witnesses
    (for use with your Watchtower Library CD-ROM)

    The Pocket Library Assistant program lets you transfer nearly all of your Watchtower Library CD-ROM (published by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania) to your Pocket PC. It is very helpful for personal study, at the meetings and daily Bible reading. The program was developed by a brother of the San Rafael English Congregation who, along with help from Brothers and Sisters worldwide, continues to enhance the program. Great care was taken to protect the integrity of the source data. It is very easy to use and adapt for one's personal study preferences.

    While it will never take the place of the Bible and the original publications, it is similar in nature to using the Watchtower Library CD-ROM on your personal PC - only now its portable!

    This program is available only to Jehovah's Witnesses who will enjoy the many features packed into this new study tool. To use this program you will need a Windows Mobile device with a touch-screen and also a 1GB or larger external memory card. You must also own and keep in your possession the original Watchtower Library on CD-ROM.

    slightly off topic but since the homebrew software was brought up. is that company still around that marketed personalized brief cases, bible holders, etc specifically for JWs. it was mail order back in the day, over 10 years ago, i'd imagine they have a website now if they are still around.
