Hello to all and thanks for the kind comments. I started the first page of this project two weeks ago simply as a kind of “can I do this?” - type of problem and it quickly escalated into the three pages you now see. Each time I solved one problem I would ask myself if it could be taken just that little bit further…
OK, to the errors and bugs found so far:
fixed problem of invalid summits;
most recent summit activations not appearing - this is down to how often a data update is done. At the moment, this is weekly, but that could be improved (Andy?);
the problem with the W0, W1,…, W6 Associations is down to the fact that these associations do not have unique/distinct Association names (they’re all called “USA”), in contrast to all the others. And I’m keying on the names…
the problem with the “missing” Slovenian peak S5/CP-006, and others, is down to the fact that several Slovenian Regions names are empty. Fixed the dropdowns so that the summits in those Regions may nonetheless be accessed under the “(unnamed)” pseudonym;
Points 3) and 4) could be fixed either by:
a) contacting the managers responsible for the Associations / Regions in question and asking for their assistance in assigning distinct names, or
b) the MT making arrangements to provide a better/more accessible data-dump (to be discussed: Andy?), than the present CSV file; or both.
So choosing not to download a browser which could well provide you with a better functionality, or faster loading of web pages, or better adherence to accepted industry standards, or possibly a more completely rounded and satisfying browsing experience (and NO, sorry, IE doesn’t provide you with any of these) seems a little perverse. And I know this for a fact, because I’ve been there - I personally resisted downloading other browsers for a very long time, before a kind friend introduced me to the Wonderful World of Browsers… But seriously, as Andy has hinted, the IE product range is unfortunately badly flawed and has been since it was introduced, and that’s a shame since Microsoft have certainly produced one or two stunning software packages (MS SQL Server, anybody?).
Enough from me, I need now to recover from this weekends’ contest…
