The Gorse Fox's iMac "Condor" is sulking because of the new laptop. As a result it seems to have become fairly unstable today and the Gorse Fox has had to intervene and reboot it several times. Top add insult to apparent injury he has been unable to restore a backup taken on "Merlin" to Family Tree Maker on "Condor". This should work, and certainly works in the opposite direction. In its own right, this has caused consternation and frustration. It has wasted most of the day with very little to show for it.
One thing the Gorse Fox was able to do was to create a book of the Silver Vixen's ancestors. This, hopefully, will trigger some more memories and provide some additional stories and and some corrections.
Now, back to the debugging.
