Re: Housekeeping

will need to followup with James for the data base access to the lost crash data which I think he has on another data base as seen via the old format before the current design its still not going to be easy for indirect methods to restore those posts.

Gmail accounts are cross linked currently and will attempt again tomorrow to correct the issue.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re #1826

Thanks for updates!

A related question just occurred to me.... will the existing user names work for the posts to be recovered?

One of the first tasks that daGeck0 might undertake would be to perform a validation run to compare the user names in the lost data to the user names in the current FluxBB database.

***
If existing gmail accounts are cross-linked, why not just forget them and create a new one?

One possible answer is that it is already difficult to keep track of all the email addresses that exist.

I can relate to that << sign >>

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair ...

This post is reserved for reports from a run from 3001-3300.

As a reminder, we have on your agenda resolution of your difficulties with Google and your intertwined/cross-linked gmail accounts.

As soon as you can resolve whatever challenges exist, the liberated gmail account(s) can be used to access the logs of updates.

Alternatively, a new gmail account, created just for interaction with NewMarsMember, can provide access to the logs immediately.

Update at Noon+ local time:

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re #1831

It looks as though 12,000 is your next mini-milestone !!!

***
Just left the NSS meeting ... the main presentation was on James Webb telescope.

The presentation will be stored on YouTube within a day or two, if anyone is interested.

The Webb part of the meeting starts on the button at 1 hour in.  It was still going when I left at 2 hours.

The presentation contained a lot of material that was new to me, so I found it worth while.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut ....

Out of curiosity, and in a spirit of learning about jobs in the current time, I asked Google what it might be like to work in a bakery at Walmart ...

Google came back with a flood of answers, and I thought these seemed closest to the mark:

Is Walmart bakery a good job?
According to online reviews, it's a combination of good and bad things (via Indeed). It can be very stressful, or it can be a great learning experience. A former employee at Walmart wrote about their experience and said, "The pay was good. I would say it was a decent first job to have.Feb 28, 2021

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re gmail account ....

Do you need more time to solve the gmail account problem?

I understand that getting gmail working is a low priority with everything else going on, but on the other hand, it appears to be the ** only ** way that you can supervise work being done on the forum database.

If there is a reason why gmail is NOT an acceptable solution, please share what it might be.

From my perspective, you already have at least two gmail acounts, because they are (somehow) cross-linked.

Again from my perspective, you ** could ** create a new gmail account and just ignore the old ones.

** And ** with experience gained from adversity, you ** could ** avoid cross-linking the new gmail account.

Tomorrow, with any luck, and if the creeks don't rise, SpaceNut will cross the 24,000 milestone.

According to FluxBB, which keeps track of such things, this post count is ** way ** beyond even the most prolific (other) forum contributor over 20 years.

For SpaceNut ... the logs of the update/edit runs are accumulating on the laptop.

They are all available for you to examine at any time, or rather, as soon as Santa Claus brings you a brand new gmail account, or if one of the Elves untangles the cross-linked old ones.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut ... This post has three items for your consideration...

We do not currently have a topic that contains the word inflation

Don't create one just yet ... please think about where such a topic might be a good fit, if Calliban is willing to tackle a subject that has bedeviled the world's smartest people (and everyone else for that matter).

2) The gmail account for SpaceNut access to the NewMarsMember Document repository remains a question

I understand there are at least two existing accounts that might work if they can be untangled, or a new account could be created.

3) This post will shortly contain the results of today's repair run to 4500.

The full run will cover 77,000 posts or so.  I can see the repaired posts on the screen, if the run ends on a post that needed repair. Hopefully NewMars members (and non-Member readers) will appreciate the improved display of posts from the earliest days of the forum.

Re: Housekeeping

Just cleared another hundred and the magical number is starting with 11200 and ending with 18344 still to process
now to work on my posts

kbd's posts can be copied back into Roberts topic by kbd or by other admins once one solves to which one goes where since posts were edited out with id locations still remaining in original topic.

I will wait until kbd adds then into the new topic.
