Am I back?

Sorry for having been gone for a long period of time.  I started what I thought would be a simple update of the blog software.

As with any computer upgrade, there may(will) be unexpected complications.  The new version of the software required an upgraded database.  Upgrading the database required creating a new database, exporting the old database data and importing the data to the new database.  That sounds simple enough.  HA HA!

How to export the data?  Check the FAQ files and find instructions.  That did not work.  I sent a message the the support staff.  I received a link to a different FAQ file.  That worked, so now the data is exported.  Check the FAQ files again for importing the data.

The exported data would not load into the new database.  I sent another message to the support staff.  I received a link to the same FAQ I had followed, so I sent a detailed message to the support staff.  This time I received specific instructions on editing the export file to remove the old database information.  This time it seemed to work.

When I tried to log in to the newly upgraded software, I had forgotten the password.  Seems frustration deletes memory.  After a few days away from the upgrade process, I remembered the log-in information, and now I am creating this post.

Next, I need to get caught up with the happenings around the family.
