C, AKR and I all worked together tonight on UI tweaks, bugs and text edits for the alpha. Full day of it planned for tomorrow too. Revenue here we come…
Still lots to get done
Working hard to whittle down the list of To-Do tasks to get ready to pull back the curtain a little on the Genlighten Rails Alpha. Definitely feeling the pressure to get it out there, combined with the realization that the many “little” remaining items represent a large amount of effort that will probably drag on much longer than I’d like. Ah well… no one said it would be...

The bishop of their new ward in Arizona asked him if he and his wife would speak in sacrament meeting. Husband said yes. Wife hates to give talks. Was mortally ill at the thought… dreaded it every moment. Sunday morning, she just...
South Davis Family History Fair wrap-up
Lowlight: Determined lady who had to have her drawing entry stamped right this second and couldn’t wait until I had my Genlighten sign duct-taped up. She eventually came back while I was talking to someone and snuck around behind me to get to the stamp. Forgive me, but I sure hope she didn’t win anything. Highlights: Strong attendance in each of the three talks (especially the...
Last-minute talk preparation
Heading to bed… almost midnight in Woods Cross, Utah. Cloud-family-tree-website talk and Twitter talk are basically ready to go. Footnote talk is in good shape but I could stand to go over it again for the new audience. Up at 5 am tomorrow… set up from 6 to 7 am. First talk at 10:40. The booth will be largely unstaffed for this one. Tomorrow night: Sizzler for dinner!

Now on to preparing the two new talks for the South Davis Family History Fair next week: one on Twitter and the other on Ancestry Family Tree vs. Geni. I want to make these really enjoyable and worthwhile...
