Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during July – September 2014
  1. This project received a lot of attention – and quite a lot was achieved – over the last quarter, though I back-pedalled a bit to rein in the total annual effort.
  2. However, again it was disappointing that I didn’t pursue my web-training with Sitepoint.
  3. During 3Q14 I expended 120 hours on this project (494 hours YTD , where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2013). That’s 76% of planned effort, 112% YTD. Overall, 17% of my project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this Project (making 19% YTD) – as against 22% planned (16% YTD).
  4. Major developments included:-
    • A suite of programs to extract data and calculate Butler-IMPs and Cross-IMPs from the travellers on Bridgewebs Teams events, and output ranking-lists to the Web. This was useful for diagnosing a bug in the EBU’s NGS system.
    • Further work on Colour Convention display.
    • A progress-tracker5 for my Thesis.
    • Improved the encoding of Weblinks, and Object to Note links.
    • Started to split Paper Abstracts from Write-ups.
    • Continued working on my Spider and started to use it to clean up my website by diagnosing broken links.
  5. Further details are given below:-

Plans for the Near Future

Given that activity on this project is high at the moment, and to avoid a long straggle of items on this report, I’ve created a document6 listing outstanding items, together with those completed since the document was created. As a result, only the more important items likely to be addressed shortly appear here.
Summary of Progress to Date

This is hived off to a separate document7 (which requires updating). A summary of time expended across the years developing my website8 is at "Software Development - Website - Development".
