November 21 data update

I was hoping that by now I could say the email backlog was resolved, but alas, this is not the case. Each email is turning out to be a major case that needs resolution and a complete layout. Unfortunately, Friday I was stuck inĀ  bed and unable to get to the computer, so this update is a day late and the hopes of doing a lot of last minute updates of little things failed. Just the same, there is a huge amount of data over the four weeks that is part of this update, so it needs to be done!

We remain anxious to reach the end of the email project so we can move onto other projects that are hovering. One of the ideas is getting location and places to have the descriptions online. Another is to get the places to all include the updated gps information. Naturally there are some large photo groups waiting our attention and some large amounts of data awaiting to be loaded, including the rest of the old website.

November 14 progress report

Last week we allowed ourselves to get bogged down in a Douthitt project, instead of pushing so hard to the goal. The truth is, it needed to be done right in order to be done at all, so no matter what I probably would have bogged down hard. This week we hope to really make a major dent in the last months of emails and get things ready for the following week website update. I cannot wait to have a huge update for this month, and so far, things look good on that front!

Project Work

Quick changes

For years we did not allow comments because spam was such (and is such) a major problem. We recently opened things up and are proud to announce we approved three valid comments! Once a person gets a comment approved, the process of commenting is much easier for them in the future. The comments were very important, and we look forward to more being able to use this vital tool. Thanks for those using it, and keep it up! We welcome you!

December 2013 emails

This is the last of the really behind emails. Once this is done, I will only have the October 2014 emails to do and the whole backlog of years of emails will finally be closed! Now the question is: Can I keep ahead of the pile or will I lose traction and fall desperately behind again? I rather figure the later, but for now, I celebrate as we do these last ones!

November 7 progress report

This week we got bogged down in emails, I guess the fact that the end is in sight, was enough to let us slack off a bit. I began looking at other projects to take on, and am excited, but still have two more months of emails to clear and the third month is coming in fast. November is when things start to really pick up and on into December. The end of December is usually really intense, with people turning in their major projects before the Roman new year. Then the spring becomes impossible! Kind of funny, but it seems to be the pattern. If I don’t get these emails finished, I may not recover! Will see, but at least things don’t get bored or let up on this project!

Oct 31 progress report

This week started with serious problems with the Legacy Family Tree Software, a piece of software I would love to throw away and never have to look at again! It is the most miserable mess I have had to deal with in several years (and that says a lot!! Not being able to run the data check on the family tree, makes me very nervous, but we will plow ahead and hope it does not become a problem. I have gotten very cautious lately about adding external trees, so that helps keep down a lot of hiccups too.

We have since fixed the problem and can run the data checking system, although it sure takes a long time to do it now!

Project Work

General Data fixes

While waiting the typical hour or so for Legacy Family Software to try to check and repair my data file, I took the time to do a project I did not expect to get to for at least another year. I do miss programming, so revised the Jewish Date system. I was able to update the code and remove the bugs and get it working! So the website may be confusing now to people, but it offers both the American and Jewish dates for each event that can be converted! Kinda Great! Now I can see in the Jewish calendar how things line up better! I’m a bit curious to see how our users will feel about it, but figure I’ll hear!
