Good Day at the Office -- Both for IT and Website Work!

I had a very successful day at the festival office today! (woo hoo) One of my better days, ever, actually...

I got significant IT done before noon (!!!), including the project to update all the Auction software (and the database) prior to our upcoming Auction. We use GreaterGiving, and it seems to need an annual upgrade. Last year this was a huge issue. I'm not kidding! And I was dealing with it at the last minute, too. Now I know how to fix it for future years -- and it really didn't take all that long, either...

Kris came to the office by 9:30 (even though he was on the phone until past 10:00). He wasn't even there an hour today.

Aside from that, I got the software installed on the laptop that needed doing, moved the IFEA Auction database back to the Server and installed the new wireless mouse on Rich's computer. (Rich's computer needs a new power supply installed -- I hope to get Donn on that next week...)

Other than IT work, I also got a bunch of website updates done -- for both the festival website and the RHSAA website, too! I was worried I'd be doing the Court updates over the weekend, as they needed to be in place by October 1. This is the earliest we've ever had them done, so that's a good deal! Way to go, Ashley -- and way to go, me! (grin)

Well, I feel like reading and am tired, so I'm off to lie down and read. I'll probably drift off, though. (smile)

"Remington Steele" tonight was one of our fave episodes. We'll enjoy it less when there's no Murphy Michaels, as we really liked that character...
