    Oh dear :(

    Possibly time for a relational database so you can cascade updates to all the affected files and everything stays in sync?

    Just a thought...

    On spreadsheet is okay, list of planets in alphabetical order. The one where I have the planets listed by Column, Serctor, then Sub-Sector are where most of the problems are. And I found a planet article link that worked, but it had extranious info in the link... fixed it.

    I would have no idea in how to tie such a database between my blog and my home computer. I'll most likely stop work on this current checking when I get tired of it, make some maps, then go back to it.

    1024 planet profiles added, checked, or edited. About 550 pages/articles left to check. Not all of them are planets, some are just info on various things.

    Found a number of map errors in my Breloss Star Cluster, fixed many of them. I may take a break and do some mapping as I found text errors today in places I had edited just last week.

    Whew.

    Over 80% done checking the 1065 planets. Some parts of the site have lots of errors, some have next to none. I'll be happy when this is done.

    Then I'll start work on mapping downports.

    I've been drawing a very large multilevel building all day long. I think I was a bit tired when I scanned your last comment. I thought it said you had checked 1065 plants!

    That's a pretty big greenhouse, I thought. LOL!

    Good luck with the downports :)

    An incredibly large greenhouse. Well, not that I have ever used a green house, saw a few by the road though.

    I really have to stop watching Billy Connolly stand up comedy videos on youtube... I keep reading the posts here like he is speaking them.

    And now you have started an incurable fit of the giggles as I try to imagine speaking like Billy Connolly! LOL!

    1173 planet profiles checked, edited, etc. out of 1265 on my site. I realize this is likely boring to most here, but when I get these done I'll be back to mapping.

    Thanks !

    This just got weird. A search on my site for UWP: gives me 1219, a search for Planet: gives me 1265. Well, 1274, but thats planets with extra pages for a planetary survery. But when I count the number of articles left to check, I get less than 30. There are 1642 articles on my site. I have part of page 2 and part of page 3 article listings to check, each article list shows a maximum of 100 articles. I must have skipped some accidently. Oh, not all of the articles have to do with planets. Some are Sub-Sectors, Sectors, star ships, info about various non-human races and empires.

    I'll just compare the spreadsheets with no UWPs in them, and compare that with the articles on my site.

    And Textpattern calls them articles, while other blogs/cms systems call them posts.

    No big deal. I think I'll work on dungeons for my Tunnels and Trolls site on Thursday.

    Of course, I understood that perfectly!

    You do seem to have an inordinate number of problems with this just lately. I hope you get them all sorted out soon :)

    Well, I decided to look for all errors and typos. I found way more than I thought was there. The first paragraph is me mostly grouching about the disparity in uwp counts.

    And my computer is acting flaky today, no updates, so I'm checking for viruses. I'm just now able to get online... been trying for around an hour.

    Ah, got the whatever on my computer off. All fixed now.

    Well, isn't that spiffy...

    I have 1234 universal world profiles, and 1265 planets. All planet pages have a UWP. I double checked with my alphabetized spreadsheet of planet names. Nothing missing there now.

    Discrepency of 22. I can look for them later, it may be the lines in the spreadsheet where I just have a planet name, is one of the ones with no UWP. Maybe I'll check this over next month.

    Off to mapping I go !

    edit: 1244 profiles, not 1234. Found a few typos going back through my site. Editing so it wont bump up just for text.

    I finally got it all straightened out. The site software search searches the title of each post/article and the body text.

    Couting them by hand, and noting in my spreadsheet which planet has a uwp, I found there are 1246 of each. The number of planets was being miscounted by the blog software search. It looks like it looks at 'Planet:' and discards the ':' in the search.

    Now I can go back to mapping and maybe make more downports.

    edit: fixed some typos.

    I still think a simple database would do wonders, but if your happy... :)

    Happy, Happy, Happy. Tired, eyes glazed over, etc.

    But I got it done.
