Rationale for this Report


Projects in Progress
Planning and Actuals
Detailed Interim Activities

As these reports are now quarterly, at best, I’m including a link17 to a brief uncommented list of what I’ve been working on since the last report (ie. this one). It is generated automatically from my time-recording system. Its main utility (to me, at any rate) is as a quick jumping-off point for the various writings in progress or recently completed. The list will, in general, be updated every few days.


Plans for the Near Future

In the light of the segregation of my projects into three tiers, items for tertiary projects are only to be addressed if everything of higher priority is in shape.
  1. Personal Identity18
  2. Philosophy of Religion23
  3. Web-tools24
    • General Developments:
      … Install MS Office Professional Plus 2013.
      … Undertake a trawl through the code for all functions within the generator – making improvements for efficiency and function.
      … Supply rudimentary functional documentation as a spin-off from the above.
      … Undertake a trawl through all (categories of) web-page, making aesthetic improvements, and correcting content.
    • Specific Developments:
      … Split Book Abstracts from Write-ups.
      … Further work on Colour Convention data fixing.
      … Enable reproduction of archived “Printed Notes”.
      … Fix problem with bespoke links to Printed Notes from Archived Notes
      … Standardise on “Write-ups” for Paper Abstracts – so, change the routines and database elements that enable the display of Paper Abstracts and Book-Paper Abstracts to accommodate this.
      … Solve the problem of the size limitation for Notes by allowing their concatenation.
      … Consequently, remove all large “Comments” that have been utilised to expand Paper (and Book?) abstracts.
      … Utilise my Web Spider – in particular, regenerate and enhance the external links page, and see if I can get JSpider to work (or utilise some of its code) to check the links.
      … Enhance my backup routines to allow pruning of the backup disk itself, and easier location of items to restore.
      … Ensure FN referencing within Notes and referencing between Abstracts and Notes works for archived Notes.
      … Expand the link to Notes from Papers and Books to be two-way, so that it’s clear that a Note is referenced by my comments on Books and Papers.
      … Investigate all the automatic hyperlinking – eg. the automatic tagging within a document of points for “links in”, and the completeness of inter-object referencing.
      … Further improve the referencing of books / papers by author.
      … Fix bugs in multi-level footnoting in Printable Notes – the referencing is going wrong.
    • Education & Infrastructure:
      … Hutton Bridge Club Website (Hutton Bridge Club): Weekly maintenance.
      … |If confirmed, take on the ECBA website (Link).
      "Admin - Bridge - Joint Project": Continue data collection & modelling
      … Continue with "Sitepoint (Learnable) - Sitepoint Learnable Web Development Courses":-
      … Complete, "Allsopp (John) - Learn HTML5", and
      … Restart, and complete, "Weakley (Russ) - Getting Started with CSS".
    • General PC Education:
      Read
      "PC Pro - Computing in the Real World"
      "Couch (Andrew) - Microsoft Access 2010 VBA Programming Inside Out",
      "MacDonald (Matthew) - Access 2010: The Missing Manual",
      "Bovey (Rob), Wallentin (Dennis), Bullen (Stephen) & Green (John) - Professional Excel Development: The Definitive Guide to Developing Applications", and
      "Jelen (Bill) & Syrstad (Tracy) - VBA and Macros: Microsoft Excel 2010".
      Use the above books to remind myself of how to get MS Access and MS Excel to “tango” – by both writing out to spread-sheets, and using automacro facilities within Excel to allow Access to control Excel.
  4. Consciousness25. Note26.
  5. Bridge27
  6. Chess28
  7. Languages29
  8. Music31
  9. Mathematics32
  10. HiQ33

      … Sort through and review historical material.
