        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.
      20. Notes: As revealed by Spider: #Reference links: fail for Printable Notes. 24 items.
      21. Notes (In Progress): As revealed by Spider: Consciousness Status Report Achived Notes - sundry links failing. Live Note OK. 46 items. 24 items outstanding.

      30. Notes: Suppress the publication of the Printable versions of Temp Notes
      31. Photos: Add photos of Tom - Create Timeline software
      32. Photos: Develop software & procedure to make adding more content to the photos pages easier to undertake.
      33. Process: As revealed by Spider: Sundry uncategorised. Refs failing. 24 items.
      34. Process: Determine why Recalculation & Changed Book/Papers produce unneeded regeneration.
      35. Spider: 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 pages10 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.
      36. Spider: Determine why Full_Link_Up_Levels_Gen takes so long - approximately 3 hours. May need to re-architect.
      37. Spider (In Progress): The Spider was generating WebRefs. Procedurally, this ought not to have been possible.
        1. The major problem turned out to be because unprocessed11 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.
        I've re-opened the case!
      38. Status: Links occasionally missing from Summary Task List and Summary Task List (YTD).
      39. Technology: Look into Sistrix Smart14. Errors and warnings itemised are:-
        1. Duplicate content: seems to be theotodman.com and Link - Defunct
        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
      40. WebRefs: As revealed by Spider: WebLinks_Tester_Full_Map.htm (etc). Refs failing. 116 items.
      41. WebRefs: As revealed by Spider: WebLinks_Tester_Map_3.htm (etc). Refs failing. 21 items.
      42. WebRefs: 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.
    • Priority: 2
      1. Abstracts (In Progress): Ensure some minimal data on Abstracts for Identity Papers Read
      2. Architecture: Improve flexibility of password-protected areas (ie. multiple areas, with different log-ons).
      3. Backups: Determine why flag on directories "not to be backed up" gets reset
      4. Backups: Investigate historic error messages
      5. Notes: Add "Specific", "Contextual" & "General" Notes as an optional footer to all Notes. I think this is important – part of the difficulty in understanding some philosophers is knowing what their background assumptions are, as this influences what they take to be “obvious” or “a given”.
      6. Notes: Bug: "++ NP ++" links to previously linked note or to (non-)Note 0. Example!
      7. Notes: Check (in use) that the optional "don't print" feature for specific footnotes doesn't print other footnotes further down the chain. Probably OK.
      8. Notes: Enable reproduction of archived “Printed Notes”.
      9. Notes: Fix bugs in multi-level footnoting in Printable Notes – the referencing is going wrong.
      10. Notes: Improve Printable notes processing for "Temp" Notes (ie. produce a "_T" (& include all "_T"s), but leave standard prints free of "Temps".
      11. Notes: Investigate Notes Archiving - see if could re-create re-formatted if required from saved historical versions (but not fixed re directories)
      12. Notes: Reading Lists: Fix duplications:-
        1. Items "cited" and "categorised" (sometimes seem to) appear twice.
        2. Books and "single papers" of that Book both appear.
      13. Notes: Solve the problem of the size limitation for Notes (eg. by allowing their concatenation, but check in Access 2013 first).
      14. Papers: Remove all large “Comments” that have been utilised to expand Paper Abstracts (by moving them to Notes17).
      15. Papers: When "+PnnnP+" reference used in an Object, allow "#Reference" style to be more specific where in the Paper Abstract the reference is.
      16. Technology: Increase use of CSS Style Sheets
      17. WebRefs (In Progress): Complete investigation and correction of broken “External” Links.
    • Priority: 3
      1. Aesthetics: Undertake a trawl through all (categories of) web-page, making aesthetic improvements, and correcting content.
      2. Architecture: Add scrolling titles to Lists
      3. Authors: Enable "alternate names" for identically-named authors (to avoid middle-initial = X).
      4. Books/Papers: Introduce check that if a Book is flagged as "read" so are its Papers. Manual check completed in March 2018.
      5. Books/Papers: Review the effectiveness of the categorised reading lists for both Papers and Books.
      6. Bridge: Hand-Dealing:
        1. Some hands not showing in consolidated lists
        2. Bidding sometimes missing for SD (maybe connected)
      7. Documenter: Investigate & fix “Query Fragments” issue.
      8. Documenter (On-Going): Investigate the error reports from the Documenter, especially unused variables & queries.
      9. Documenter: Separate Documenter from the main database & code, then add a parameter so it doesn’t necessarily document itself.
      10. Documenter: 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 therefrom.
      11. Facebook: Upgrade my Facebook page ("Facebook - Understand Facebook & Build Personal Facebook Page") using "Abram (Carolyn) - Facebook for Dummies: Fifth Edition" for inspiration / guidance.
      12. Notes: Determine why very long printable notes (eg. Level 3+ for Note 170) are being truncated.
      13. Notes: Fix problem with broken bespoke links to Printed Notes from Archived Notes.
      14. Notes: Improve flexibility of reading lists attached to printable version of Notes (different sort orders, priority items only, etc).
      15. Notes: Improve reading-lists from Notes (ie. firstly PID, then all starting with topic from Philosophy Papers Full)
      16. Status: Check how "YTD Planned %" is calculated - seems incorrect early in the Quarter if the plan varies during the year.
      17. Technology: Investigate the use of RTF in memo fields, so that I can get round the 64k character limit.
      18. Technology: Read the Google documentation (Link (https://www.google.com/webmasters/)) to investigate where I’m going wrong in the (failure to) use META tags to ensure my stuff sorts correctly in the search engines.
      19. Technology: Use generated Javascript to allow multi-level expandable / contractable lists in Notes and Paper Abstracts.
      20. Technology: Very long pages (eg. Concatenated Notes and Book Paper Abstracts) fail to render correctly in Firefox (mostly OK in other browsers). Investigate whether it’s possible to subdivide them.
    • Priority: 4
      1. Technology: Add page-hit counters
    • Priority: 5
      1. Documenter: Technical Documenter:-
        1. Investigate possibilities of retailing the documenter.
        2. Enhance to document Macros.
        3. Look at ways of documenting other (MS Access) databases & trial on Northwind.
    • Work-arounds
      1. Books (Work-around): Book Comments: if there are explicit internal links to files in Book Comments, they cannot work both in the BookSummary and BookPaperAbstracts, which are at different directory levels. So, don’t put them in the Comments – only in the Abstract.
      2. Books (Work-around): Books - Referencing of Notes: The "+NnnnN+" method works from the Book Summary, "++nnn++" from Book Abstract, but neither vice-versa.
      3. Books (Work-around): Books by Location: the jump table led to an invalid location. I bodged the data, by deleting an unused location, and didn’t properly investigate.
      4. Books (Work-around): Books to Notes: There’s an issue if a Note changes from Secure to non-Secure, but I bodged the data and didn’t try to fix it.
    • Cancelled Developments

      6. General: Fix "American" date formats in Electronic Resources page
      7. Notes: Create "who's who" of respondents (will just be private notes)
      8. Technology: Create own local webserver
      9. Technology: Increase use of Frames21
      10. Technology: Investigate Wiki-technology (inc. Confluence, Plone CMS & Windows Help)

      1. Priority 1: Links occasionally missing from Summary Task List and Summary Task List (YTD).
      2. Priority 3: Check how "YTD Planned %" is calculated - seems incorrect early in the Quarter if the plan varies during the year.
    • Technology
      1. Priority 1: Look into Sistrix Smart39=14. Errors and warnings itemised are:-
        1. Duplicate content: seems to be theotodman.com and Link - Defunct
        2. Title Tags: Empty, too long, identical
        3. Page Not Found
        4. Filesize in excess of 1Mb

        7. H1: Not used, used multiple times per page, identical across pages
        8. Pictures: Alt attribute missing
      2. Priority 2: Increase use of CSS Style Sheets
      3. Priority 3: Investigate the use of RTF in memo fields, so that I can get round the 64k character limit.
      4. Priority 3: Read the Google documentation (Link (https://www.google.com/webmasters/)) to investigate where I’m going wrong in the (failure to) use META tags to ensure my stuff sorts correctly in the search engines.
      5. Priority 3: Use generated Javascript to allow multi-level expandable / contractable lists in Notes and Paper Abstracts.
      6. Priority 3: Very long pages (eg. Concatenated Notes and Book Paper Abstracts) fail to render correctly in Firefox (mostly OK in other browsers). Investigate whether it’s possible to subdivide them.
      7. Priority 4: Add page-hit counters
      8. Cancelled: Create own local webserver
      9. Cancelled: Increase use of Frames40=21
      10. Cancelled: Investigate Wiki-technology (inc. Confluence, Plone CMS & Windows Help)
    • WebRefs

      2. Priority 1: As revealed by Spider: WebLinks_Tester_Map_3.htm (etc). Refs failing. 21 items.
      3. Priority 1: Documentation & Bug-fixes: Phase 2

In-Page Footnotes

Footnotes 10, 35:
  • 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.
Footnotes 11, 36:
  • 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.
Footnotes 14, 39:
  • 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.
Footnotes 17, 34:
  • Once the size-limitation on Notes has been resolved.
Footnotes 20, 22:
  • I'm not sure what was intended here.
Footnotes 21, 40:
  • This is now archaic, and was subsequently largely abandoned, though useful at the time.
