Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during October – December 2016
  1. This project retained some of its prominence, but not to the degree of previous quarters.
  2. A continuing disappointment was that I didn’t pursue my web-training with Sitepoint, despite having – in anticipation – extended my membership for another couple of years. I have, however, grabbed all the eBooks in their library, though haven’t catalogued them all yet.
  3. However, Nat discovered a course put out by Harvard - "Harvard University - CS50 Introduction to Computer Science" - which he has been pursuing vigorously and finding very helpful. I’ve taken a look at it and hope to take the course as well, though at a more leisurely pace over the coming year.
  4. I completed tidying up the work on "Mansell (Peter) - Bottom Up Reading of Acts".
  5. Otherwise there was rather a random scatter of stuff, as can be seen from the detailed list below.
  6. During 4Q16 I expended 153 hours on this project (153 hours YTD, where for “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year that commenced in October 2016). That’s 83% of planned effort, 83% YTD. Overall, 24% of my project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this Project (making 24% YTD) – as against 30% planned (30% YTD).
  7. Full details for 4Q16 are given below:-

Plans for the Near Future

I’ve retained the planned weekly effort on this project at 14 hours. My intention over the next two years is to reduce the amount of effort expended on other sites and focus on sorting out my own, together with updating my technical competence. To avoid too long a straggle of items on this report, I’ve created a document9 listing outstanding items10, together with those completed since the document was created. As a result, only the more important11 items likely to be addressed shortly appear below.
Summary of Progress to Date

This is hived off to a separate13 document14. A summary of time expended across the years developing my website15 is at "Software Development - Website - Development".

Footnote 4: Footnote 5: This is very tedious to produce and consequently is both incomplete and out of date.

Footnote 7: Footnote 10: This hasn’t been updated since the end of last year, but hasn’t needed to change much.

Footnote 11: This list has, however, got too long!

Footnote 12: Footnote 13: Footnote 15: As distinct from developing other peoples’ websites – time which is also recorded against this project, but not against this task.
