I’ve had to divert my research and writing energy to the family website www.mcwieser.info Somehow while downloading an update of the software I use to create the site ToWeb by Luayun Software I overwrote the file copy of the site AND the backup copy of the site. I suspect a flawed download but the brute fact is I am having to rebuilt the site and that is very tedious. I began the site in March and have several hundred photos and 3 long articles posted there. Since I am not a natural coder, it takes me a long time to tweak things. The good part is I am happier with the rebuilt design, the bad news is that I might just reload without some of the current photos since they take the longest to annotate and post. In the meantime the existing site has some broken image files that I can’t fix so I apologize. Instead of recreating things I had planned on adding a family wiki site for my husbands mother’s family the Anstoetters. They are becoming ever farther flung and a wiki would be a great way for them to stay in touch and also manage their regular family reunions. I guess that project will take a back seat for awhile. Sigh.
