December Results & PreviewPosted by Paul S on Mon December 18, 2000 at 0h00
December tournament results are
now available. I'm sorry for the delay. This time, it wasn't my
fault! For some reason I was completely unable to login to the web
server to update the site. The web site was still viewable, I just
couldn't get in to change it! Then just as strangely the problem
stopped today for no apparent reason. Oh well.
Now, here's a quick preview of some of the changes to the site that
will be made in the next few weeks:
- Ladder Archive will be caught up. This will happen in two
stages. The first stage will be to catch up to September, for
which I have the sheets and images of the official ladder book.
Then I'll have to obtain the sheets and the ladder book for the
rest of the year and update using those. Fortunately, though, I'll
be back at the club on Thursdays so this won't be a problem.
- Site restructuring. I'll be organizing the site's
directory and file naming structure to make it a little more
logical, as things are getting a little cluttered and awkward for
me to manage. As a result, those that link to pages directly may
find the pages are suddenly missing! This includes major
indexes like the Results and Ladder Archive indexes. For this
reason, please remember that if you suddenly find a page is
missing, the proper course of action is to go to the main site
page. I'll try to provide redirectors but I can't do this for
every page, obviously. Also, when accessing the site's main index,
use http://www.calgary374.org/ WITHOUT
SPECIFYING A FILENAME. The name of the main index page may be
one that changes, and I'm not sure I'll be able to provide a redirector
for it due to the nature of the changes. Thus, if you have this
site bookmarked, change your bookmark to access the above
address exactly as it appears if it doesn't already. You
may have to manually edit the URL in your browser's Bookmark
Properties to do this.
- I'm hoping to give the site a small makeover in connection with
the above, but I'm not sure I'll have the time. If I do, the
changes would involve an appearance change as well as providing a
better way to get around the site.
- Score Sheet Archive. I'll be setting up an archive
where you can view and download Scrabble® score & tracking
sheets that various players have generously provided me with. This
will be a great resource for anybody trying to find a system that
works well for them. I have the score sheets, I just need to scan
- Virtual Tour & More Pictures! I bought myself a cheap
digital camera and I'm willing to use it to take pictures for this
web site too. In addition to the Virtual Tour of our club that I
promised two years ago, I'm hoping to expand the pictures section
to include shots from tournaments and other club events.
- In addition, I'm hoping to make a few other site enhancements.
I won't say exactly what because time will be short, but hopefully
I'll at least be able to implement a few neat things.
I'm not giving a timeline on any of the above due to my apparent
lack of ability to stick to one, but I can say that large quantities of
Ladder results should start to appear by the weekend. After that, I'll
play it by ear!
