Today was my day for my volunteer researching at the Church Archives. My friend and I were both going to register for a class. She wanted the class Determining Kinship Reliably with Thomas Jones and I wanted Advanced Land Record with Rick Sayre.
At high noon sharp we ready with our registration page in place. According to the clock on our computers it was 12:00 we started clicking. She got in and in a few seconds submitted her choice and to her dismay it was closed at 12:04. ??????? How did that happen? She opted for the waiting list.
I could not get connected by hitting register and I tried another computer that we had the home page up as a back up. With a few click of my mouse I was ready to go and got in the class by 12:06. Was the problem with too many people trying to register or was the computer too slow?
It really was sort of frustrating for her to get in by 12:04 and be too late. I was happy I got my choice. I can only imagine the trauma if you had to submit your credit card information with the registration. I am glad we can pay by check within 30 days.
