553 records loaded
Updated: Sun 17th. January 2010
One advantage of a prolonged and bitter winter is the fact that I cannot do any outside work thus leaving more time to spend on the computer. Records in the system now exceed the 500 mark with hundreds waiting to be added but it still surprises me as to how long this takes when photos have to be processed and details checked.
The Range table has now been brought into use and the next step is to redesign the browse pages and make the records fully searchable, but there is still a lot of work to do behind the scenes before this will happen. There are now quite a large number of photos in the system waiting to be sorted and listed but this all takes time and I must ask you all to be patient. At this point I would like to thank all those who have sent me photos for use on the site and these will all be incorporated at some stage.
Eastgate fans may be pleased to know that John Worsdale, MD of Eastgate has loaned me a number of archive photos from exhibitions as well as providing me with many facts regarding some of the rarer pieces. On this note I have begun putting the correct names to the various patterns used. A few are shown here and while it is going to take some time for me to go through the complete listings, I would appreciate it if Ebayers could use the correct names listed here in their descriptions.
- Continue adding records. (Ongoing)
- Fill in the descriptions and titles where missing.
- Build basic search facilities. (In hand)
- Allow for multiple backstamps per record. (Database ready, shame about me)
- Input designer details where known.
- Redesign the display system. (In hand, hopfully by Feb.)
