Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October - December 2014
  1. This project took a bit of a back seat in the last Quarter.
  2. Again, a particular disappointment was that I didn’t pursue my web-training with Sitepoint. I have – in anticipation – extended my membership for another couple of years.
  3. During 4Q14 I expended 74 hours on this project (74 hours YTD , where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2014). That’s 80% of planned effort, 80% YTD. Overall, 13% of my project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this Project (making 13% YTD) – as against 14% planned (14% YTD).
  4. Major developments were few and far between, but work included:-
    • Improvements to my Butler-IMPs and Cross-IMPs calculation routines – different formats, including the Jeff Smith format, and extension to Butler-scored Pairs events. This work has been taken up by the ECBA selectors for county-team selection.
    • Made improvements to the regeneration and referencing of archived Notes.
    • Fixed the bug wherein the Spider ran out of system resources on large runs: now compacts & repairs the slave database as it does along (every 200k links; parameterised)
    • Rolled my database over to the new Academic Year.
    • Otherwise, mainly minor fixes.
  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 document8 (which requires updating). A summary of time expended across the years developing my website9 is at "Software Development - Website - Development".
