I am sort of sorted out on my new computer.
I spent today re-compiling a spreadsheet for my dividends. I was a bit dismayed that I had lost it but then remembered that it was out of date with many alterations as I traded and then I remembered that I had totally messed it up and had intended to re-do it anyway. So I felt better about it and I have entered the dividends from the last six months and it all seems to be working. It was, in fact, good because I haven't done a spreadsheet from scratch for ages and it is something which a lot of the COTA clients want to learn.
Luckily I had already printed off last financial year's data so I organised and sent off all my tax stuff to my accountant .
Then I contacted Avanquest Software, gave them the details of my recent download of Family Tree Maker 14 and they immediately sent me a link to download it again - so I did that. Then I did a search for the FTM data download which Techie put onto a flash drive yesterday but couldn't find it and so I went to Ancestry.com to see if they would sync my tree. They refused on the grounds that they didn't recognise the computer despite the fact that I was logged in. So I started putting in my family back to my great-grandparents and suddenly it synced itself so that is up and working. I started doing that on the grounds that if Ancestry.com synced from my tree I should be able to sync back to my computer and that is what happened.
And I managed to do an hour's spinning - but it was a fast day so I didn't have to stop to eat - just coffee on the run.
