Wow! Great idea, Tim! Your scripts are helpful machinations indeed.

Finally got around to doing "Battle of the Falling Cherry-Blossoms". I was hoping someone else might take a crack at it, but in retrospect the contents of the article isn't immediately obvious based on the name.

Tobun = done. Been meaning to do that for a good while. I like creating things!

I just read that through; it's quite good.

Looks like the Wiki algorithm considers letters ''and numbers'' part of the AutoLink thing... easily fixed..

that's actually supposed to be "Una Hora de Acción con los Wizbits!".. It seems as though the C# code has some trouble with the ó, and I think I've seen an issue with ' as well.

There's something odd about extended characters... I think the ' thing is when someone actually types an extended single quote character... eg like Word SmartQuotes... It's like there's unicode mixed in with ASCII or something. To be fair the C++ code throws some odd characters in there too when there's an extended character in the text file. I'm going to do some research on this and see what I can find out.

Hmm... I Googled a bit and I believe that changing the Encoding format to the System Default, eg using Encoding.Default.GetString() instead of explicitly forcing ASCII with Encoding.ASCII.GetString() will fix that problem. I've changed the source code to reflect this.

What OS are you running? I noticed that the broken link lists you generated on your machine with my code had strange problems with ', but the same lists with the same code (i believe), didn't appear to exhibit the problem when I compared output.

Windows XP with SP2... but I have all the language/locale settings on UK and UK English... don't know if that would make any difference.

interesting.. good find with the encoding, I'll update my copy of the code over here too...

I've done Rickett's and Toby's Guide (had a lot of fun with that one) and Narlon of The Eighteen Wounds (likewise, but it's much shorter).

yeah, good article. I really like their method of building an encyclopedia. it also contrasts nicely with aardnarsh. it's an excellent example of serial vs parallel.

Speaking of Aardnarsh, just finished his entry. That one took way too long. Might be time for me to take a break from the wiki for a couple of days...

I think that this new layout for most wanted is a step in the right direction... thoughts?

Anonymous said

A step in the right direction... but the formatting demands a lot of scrolling to get through the list, which makes it a bit harder to read.

perhaps some variation on this

Does anybody remember anything about the description of the snorkiepie?

w00t... ok.. so now I can generate these pages without downloading the pbwiki backup zip...

Awesome. Nice job.

Tim said

at 7:46 pm on May 2, 2008

so if you grab mindlessotto.exe you can re-generate the most wanted/least wanted pages whenever u want

Cool. Can it also do all the other styles of Broken/Stub link lists?

Tim said

at 8:52 pm on May 5, 2008

yeah.. I'll set that up now

Tim said

at 9:53 pm on May 5, 2008

so right now it's doing "most neglected", most wanted, broken links, and list of stubs.... any others that it should take care of?
The nice thing is that if you download this latest version, we should be able to change which pages it maintains without having to get a new version of the executable since it can download the script to execute from the web page.

I think all those should be good. Nice job.

Least Complete would also be good too.

Tim said

at 11:15 pm on May 6, 2008

ok.. least complete is there now... also added some additional script side functions so that it should be easy to build pages like that completely through script in the future (so a new version of the executable should be less likely)
