My genealogy day - 11 February 2011

I really didn't get much done today, except for blogging and getting ready for the SDGS talk on Saturday.  I spent all day wishing I was at RootsTech.

*  Jumped on the RootsTech site to watch Curt Witcher's presentation, and I'm glad I did.  I tweeted some too.  Excellent.  Read my email and blogs during the next presentation about Cloud Computing - not genealogy, so stopped it eventually. 

*  Wrote Curt Witcher's Presentation at RootsTech Conference using the Twitter feed.  Ate lunch. 

*  Went off at 11:45 a.m. to pick up George for our weekly walk on the bayfront. 75 F today, no wind, CAVU from bay to mountains.  Wish we had days like this in May and June!

*  Home by 12:45 p.m. to read everything, then research and write Italicizing Source material in RootsMagic 4.  Went in at 2:15 p.m. to read the paper and take a nap, but I didn't.

*  Back online at 3 p.m. to watch Josh Taylor's PDF presentation by replaying it and advancing it.  Not bad, but not genealogy either.  Checked Twitter feeds.

*  Set up the laptop, made one final pass through the presentation, saved it, copied it to two flash drives and then to the laptop.  Checked the presentation thing to make sure it works, and packed up the laptop.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, finally got my nap, and eat dinner.

*  Back online at 6:15 p.m. to write the Surname Saturday post, then checked Twitter feed for RootsTech and checked Facebook.

*  Watched WDYTYA? at 8 p.m., gave it only a C+.  They made it look too easy, and there was no great emotional find this week.  Liked Tim.

*  Back online at 9 p.m. to write the SNGF post for Saturday, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook again and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours on Twitter/Facebook, 1.0 hour working on presentation, and 1.0 hour on WDYTYA?
