Skip 2 and 4 and eat on the run.
Well at least 3 out of 5 is fair.

From worrying about the future of Family Origins 10 years ago to producing what must now be the best genealogy software in the world by far is a nice step up.

Don’t get complacent, keep worrying about RM if thats the kind of results it brings (-:

I’m ready for the next reveal….

Let me see if I have this right . . . 5 or 6 new features to be revealed in the blog, followed by the release announcement, plus time needed to order and receive the new version of RM and only 10 weeks until 2009. Did I cover everything?

The user’s group meets tonight, maybe I’ll learn something there.

Just wanted to thank Bruce Buzbee for his great book “Getting the most out of RootsMagic 4″. I thought my Rootsmagic software was good but now I’ve got the book I realise just how good it is! The book is not easily available in the UK, I had to get my copy second hand mailed from USA.
Thanks Bruce!
