  3. Website (10 hours per week)
    1. Own Website: Priority 1 Items By Category:-
      • Architecture
        1. Compact and Repair Problems
          1. On compacting and repairing my main database I sometimes get the error "The query cannot be completed. Either the size of the query result is larger than the maximum size of a database (2 GB), or there is not enough temporary storage space on the disk to store the query result".
          2. It happens 3 times while the database is re-opening.
          3. There is lots of space, and the database is only 600Mb (and the error started when it was under 500Mb).
          4. This mostly happens after I've run long processes, so I usually close the database, re-open it and then try the compact and repair. Usually this works, but not always. But I then try again and the message disappears.
          5. I strongly suspect that this is MS Access itself re-indexing tables, and blowing up a temporary database, but I can’t find any evidence for this on-line. Or help, other than suggestions to split databases and do other sensible things. Given that the error occurs when the database is re-opening, with no temporary file visible, is very strange.
          6. 17/04/20 - set MaxLocksPerFile to 1,000,000 (from the default 9,500). Sadly, it doesn't seem to have made a difference.
        2. Complete XRef-re-engineering project:-
          1. Ensure all links and link-pages use the new XRef table, and pension off the old tables.
          2. Look into writing out specific object-identifiers, and linking thereto for Citations, rather than paragraph references. An issue is multiple instances of the same object in a document.
          3. Check all link-types still work and fix any errors.
          4. Complete the auto-triggering of regeneration of “associated” link pages.
          5. Fix update bug in Convert_Webrefs.
          6. Fix Bug whereby PaperSummary pages seem to have “Works-” and “Books/Papers-” Citings that refer to the same link-pages.
          7. Document the process!
        3. Document, Repair & update my Website site-map
        4. Review effectiveness of hyperlinking method in the light of PhD and Philosophy of Religion experience.
        5. Where possible, use ID rather than NAME for in-page hyperlinks
      • Backups
        1. Investigate Record-count discrepancies:-
          1. How do website files work as far as counts are concerned?
          2. Why aren't they recorded in Backup_History, nor the fact that the website was backed up?
          3. Different counts depending on whether new or old laptop is backed up. Investigate 63k discrepancy - lower on new laptop.
        2. Review architecture to improve performance; Need to document first
      • Books
        1. Further improve the time to regenerate Book Summaries. Now takes about 21 minutes, but should be under 5 minutes!
      • Books/Papers
        1. As revealed by Spider: Spurious BooksToNotes and PapersToNotes links produced (45 items)
        2. Investigate whether multiple Subject/Topic/Subtopic usage leads anywhere (ie. are just the first (of 3) actually used). Fix anything amiss.
        3. Reformat the BookCitings and PaperCitings pages:-
          1. Detail PaperCitings Pages: Include only useful information on the detail pages; but if there are multiple links from the same object, include them on the same line as 'extra links' as in BookCitings (copy the code: or, better, combine the two subs).
          2. Summary (Author Letter) pages: Include counts (as in Authors' Citations).
          3. Ensure uses the Cross_Reference table.
          4. Document!
      • Bridge
        1. Develop auto-reconciliation routines vs EBU results download
      • Documenter
        1. Investigate the error reports from the Documenter, especially unused variables & queries.
        2. Provide Functional Documentation for Website Generator (using Notes)
      • Education
        1. "Sitepoint (Learnable) - Sitepoint Learnable Web Development Courses": Membership cancelled, but plan what to do with the eBooks in my possession.
        2. Read "PC Pro - Computing in the Real World".
        3. Read "White (Ron) & Downs (Timothy Edward) - How Computers Work: The Evolution of Technology".
      • Infrastructure
        1. iCloud for Windows: Re-install & solve 'The upload folder for iCloud Photos is missing' problem. Try on new Laptop.
      • Notes
        1. Add "Note Alternates" to Note pages.
        2. Add option in Auto-Reference Notes to automatically ignore words containing certain strings that include the key-word (eg. ignore 'grace' and 'trace' when indexing 'race')
        3. Add option in Auto-Reference Notes to only confirm new items (leaving previously-flagged items untouched)
        4. Allow the option to concatenate Notes in the Printed version (ie. linearly embed them essay-style), rather than treating the hyperlinks as footnotes – but still keep the hyperlink & cross-referencing in place.
          1. For use as "disclaimers" - eg. for "Plug Notes".
          2. For Thesis / essays: the difficulty here is the need for linking passages to make the text run smoothly.
        5. As part of the Cross-Referencing project, check out the consistent treatment of Note 875, which should be universally ignored. Recently, links to it appeared on Book-Summaries, Book_Paper_Abstracts and Note_Book_Links, as a Note referencing a Book. The critical item was a row on the Note_Book_Links table.
        6. Determine why very long printable notes (eg. Level 3+ for Note 170) are being truncated. Probably suppress them in any case, as they take far too long to load.
        7. Fix bugs in multi-level footnoting in Printable Notes – the referencing is going wrong.
        8. Full Notes_Link Pages Regen: Determine why it takes 108 minutes (and climbing) and see if performance can be improved.
        9. Investigate Note_Links: Section references seem to be incorrect
        10. Printable Notes: fix the bug whereby the “private” flag is round the wrong way.
        11. Split Aeon Page into multiple sub-pages (either by topic or by priority)
        12. Suppress the publication of the Printable versions of Temp Notes
      • Papers
        1. The monthly regeneration process for Paper Abstracts was still takeing just over 5 hours. Problem is with Cross_Reference_Deletions and Cross_Reference_Additions. I thought it could not be fixed until the cross-referencing project is fully complete and documented. However, it spontaneously improved to 1.6 hours in the August 2020 run. Monitor!
      • Photos
        1. Develop software & procedure to make adding more content to the photos pages easier to undertake.
        2. Timeline software: Add photos for Holidays & Family History
      • Process
        1. Determine why Recalculation & Changed Book/Papers produce unneeded regeneration.
      • Spider
        1. Analyse the results of the data collection exercise and design a plan of campaign to fix broken Internal links and prevent recurrence.
          1. Correct the code so the problems discovered by the Spider don’t recur.
          2. Delete 'orphan pages' that are never linked to, ie. Use the Spider to prune redundant pages81 automatically where possible.
          3. Fix the historical data where errors are uncovered by the Spider. An easier task now the site has a full-regen function.
        2. The size of the main database bloats to over 1.5Gb during the spider run, so is approaching the 2Gb limit.
          1. Use Check_Database_Size, with a parameter, to monitor the size – output a message similar to those reporting the compact / repair of the Slave database.
          2. It looks like the bloating occurs after the return from Spider_Scurry: add a check before each message is output.
          3. Put checks in to STOP if over 1.8Gb.
          4. Determine a solution as the limit is pushed. Some tables are “local” for performance reasons and are later copied to the Slave … maybe move them?
        3. The Spider was generating WebRefs. Procedurally, this ought not to have been possible.
          1. The major problem turned out to be because unprocessed82 URLs got added to the end of the last WebLinks_Tester_Brief page, which then got Spidered. I've stopped this happening, so hopefully the problem will not recur. The fix was made in 18Q2.
          2. However, 4 other creations appeared - dated 18/05/18 - from the run of 10/07/18. The creation date was from the previous spider run, but the IDs show that they were produced in the latest run.
          3. I've re-opened the case! But now Spider_Ctrl outputs the message 'Check Webrefs_To_Be_Added_By_Spider_Detail and run Webrefs_Add if necessary.
          4. The August 2020 run produced a list of 163 items. I think these are all down to fixes undertaken following a full WebRefs check run. I need to check and find out why the lists appear.
      • Technology
        1. Look into Sistrix Smart83. Errors and warnings itemised are:-
          1. Duplicate content: seems to be variants on theotodman.com
          2. Title Tags: Empty, too long, identical
          3. Page Not Found
          4. Filesize in excess of 1Mb
          5. Meta-Description: Empty
          6. Few words on Page
          7. H1: Not used, used multiple times per page, identical across pages
          8. Pictures: Alt attribute missing
      • WebRefs
        1. Documentation & Bug-fixes: Phase 2
          1. Re-document the procedures in the light of recent changes.
          2. Resolve issues generated / revealed by the spider.
          3. Investigate - and fix where possible - broken links.
        2. Improve WebRefs checker (Webrefs_Update) further to check for Error 403 "Forbidden". This will often involve finding way of checking pdfs where the returned page is in fact HTML or XML (see DevLog Ref 379).
        3. Investigate defunct items. Populate Defunct_Explanation in WebRefs_Table and include in relevant WebLinks_Tester reports. Consider use of FairUse (Link - Fair Use) for documents no longer available that I'd downloaded.
        4. Reformat WebLinks_Tester.htm, WebLinks_Tester_Map.htm, WebLinks_Tester_Full.htm & WebLinks_Tester_Full_Map.htm
          1. Clarify 'truncated': Display, not link
          2. Allow more space for 'link returned', 'issue' and 'display text'
          3. The 'As Above" lines waste space. Only for Notes Archive? Consolidate onto single second line.
        5. Reformat WebLinks_Tester_Brief: Allow more space for 'link returned', 'issue' and 'display text'

In-Page Footnotes

Footnotes 23, 35: Footnote 33:
  • This paper covers the 'Loose and Popular' vs 'Strict and Philosophical' senses of identity, amongst much else.
Footnote 36: Footnote 41:
  • Neither sub-topic is really part of my research into the metaphysics of personal identity, but it's become such an important topic of late - one on which I'm largely ignorant and need to have a considered opinion.
Footnote 63:
  • Also look through other works by Andy Clark to get a handle on what he means by 'patterns in information space'.
Footnote 75:
  • While I couldn't submit to Michael Alter's deadlines and the amount of work required, I ought to at least read these books.
Footnote 81:
  • Note that Backup_Prune_Ctrl deletes (relevant) pages that weren't regenerated in the last full site-regen, but this isn't the same thing.
Footnote 82:
  • These are URLs that were used in web pages but hadn't yet been converted to the +WnnnW+ format, so appeared at the end with no WebRef ID.
Footnote 83:
  • See Sistrix (https://www.sistrix.com/smart/)
  • This used to be called Optimizr, see Optimizr (http://www.optimizr.com/) (which now auto-forwards to Sistrix).
  • A quick look doesn’t show it to be an obvious scam, but I need to double-check.
  • An unsolicited analysis of my site turned up monthly from Optimizr from January 2015 to October 2017, listing a large number of “problems” that I think I know about, but which are in the queue to address.
  • It restarted in February 2018, under the Sistrix name (this seems to have been associated with Optimizr since November 2015).
  • The free version of this software is restricted to 1,000 pages, which is a very small proportion of my Site, though I may be able to point it to difference base-URLs.
  • But I do need to address the problems validly itemised, and a sub-set is still useful.
Footnote 85:
  • Well, maybe with the occasional holiday, and excluding days on which I have a lesson or the Enigma Ensemble (currently in hibernation).
Footnote 86:
  • I don't intend to present these for the Trinity exams, as I can present Orchestral Audition pieces instead; but they are essential for technique.
Footnote 87:
  • I've yet to decide which to present for the Exam, so this long list will get whittled down in due course.
Footnote 88:
  • These are just the ones from the Trinity schedule that I happen to have. Some look rather fearsome.
  • The only one I've had assigned is the Second Movement of the Saint-Saens.
Footnote 89:
  • The earlier grades are very elementary, but I need practice writing musical notation.
Footnote 90: Ie. The following:- Footnote 94:
  • And consider migrating from Chess.com (https://www.chess.com/), which requires Diamond renewal on 29th August, costing about £80.
Footnote 95:
  • This used to say "full participation", but I've let the team captain know that my 'mind games' focus is Bridge, and that - while I'm willing to "fill a board" - I don't want to take the place of anyone more enthusiastic.
  • In any case, there's now no 'over the board' chess to be had.
Footnote 102:
  • Though I will probably book the time against my Thesis, as it involves what it is to be a person, transhumanism and the like.
Footnote 103:
  • I had a quick look at entry requirements, and - while I scored 30 on the Mega Test - so comfortably met the 24-mark threshold - this was marginally after the January 1995 cut-off (I think - I'm not sure where I've filed the letter from Ron Hoeflin [see Wikipedia: Ronald K. Hoeflin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_K._Hoeflin)]).
  • They don't automatically accept members of comparable societies, so that's that.
  • I didn't check out whether the society was worth joining.
