>From one old fuddy duddy to another, David, I was also quite content with the
old GAP and dreaded the introduction of the new one. Fortunately for me, I have
a young computer whiz kid for a co-admin who can hold my hand and help me get
up-to-speed on the new system and fix a lot of the glitches that have popped up.
I know there are many administrators out there who do not have that same
luxury, and I feel sorry for them.

Perhaps I am an old fuddy duddy (probably am), but I was quite content with
the old GAP. I am admittedly resistent to change, but the result will be
the same as it is for Word and Excel 2010 and FTM 2010 - avoidance. Some of
us are left in the dust and with apparently no means or option of meeting
our needs. Sink or swim.

FTDNA are merely trying to keep up with the times, and to address concerns
of many group administrators. Surely no one can fault them. However the
net result will be a great deal of discouragement on the part of some,
who probably have too much on their plate, and are unwilling or unable to
deal with yet another techno change that requires yet another struggle.
