Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re #1725

Thanks for taking the time to show that post repaired properly.

The double quote is ** not ** a bug ... the author had quoted something that itself contained a quote.

Good Grief!  Ok ... I'll take that command out of the script.

However, now that you've repaired 37001, I can't use it as a guinea pig << grin >>

I'll pick another post with lots of bandits.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair initiative

I found your first post!  #44000 in 2004, on the same day as you registered! You were talking about Hubble.
From now on, I'll be finding lots of your posts, and all I can do is to point them out.

WBA test is showing progress... The new version is close to right.

The bandits are detected and removed, except for the right bracket.

An adjustment of the location pointer should correct that.

A run to 45000 will start shortly.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair ...

The latest test shows that the new function appears to be working,  but ** now ** I'm discovering situations that were not seen before....

Original:



Text direct from Clipboard in Step: 22

[ c o l o r = 663300:p o s t_uid0][q u o t e]If we allow even the appearance of impropriety, from the Arab perspective, we have already lost that battle.[/ q u o te:p o s t_uid0]

Result of processing:


[c o l or=663300:][q u o te]If we allow even the appearance of impropriety, from the Arab perspective, we have already lost that battle.[/q u o te:]

Please note that the color parameter does not inlude a pound sign, as the early examples showed.

In addition, the quote close is followed by a colon, because the script did not include a colon in the search argument.

***
This is more complicated than I had been expecting.

I'm surprised to see the color parameter change from the beginning, with =# before the digits, to the current format without a #

My solution to that is to adjust the script to look for color= and just hope that the change does not delete the string where someone wrote that for some reason.  Hopefully no one did something like that.

The ** other ** concern is the colon showing up after a quote close, because the script is looking for post_uid.

It is not a problem if ** very ** post_uid string is preceded by a colon.

I'll adjust the script to see what happens.

It is still ** way ** too early to be performing actual updates.

All these tests are being run with reporting but no updates.

Re: Housekeeping

The latest version of color is = to the color in words
So if the word color shows in brackets removal all of it... simple and that has already been said....

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re #1729

Thanks for helping with the problem ...

I am trying to write a function that can be used for more than the specific application we are dealing with here.

A human being can "see" that the word color is inside brackets. 

A computer can figure out that the word color is inside brackets, but doing so is far more sophisticated than is needed for this procedure.

The latest test seems to have worked.

I'll run more tests tomorrow so we will have a reasonable number of samples to study.

Re: Housekeeping

Yes it is harder but I have seen that you do have those skills required in programing to over come the issues.

If nothing else we can flag the posts that need human intervention which will be many...

I will begin reviewing my posts and can alter them if it will help to get them out of the way or do you want me to wait.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re #1731

Thanks for the encouragement!

If you want to start working on your posts, that would be good, because I am not going to be able to help much.  All the program can do is to identify posts that are "owned" by an Administrator.

***
In the regolith harvesting topic, I've made some progress in understanding what you've been wanting to do.  Somehow I got the idea you were thinking of harvesting the water that is chemically bound in the regolith.  However, now that I understand that the Martian regolith is functioning as a desiccant, then the procedure you are considering is equivalent to the procedure used on Earth to refresh a desiccant.

Once you have "cleaned" the desiccant, you can lay it back down and it will immediately go back to work collecting useful molecules from the atmosphere of Mars.  In other words, you would be working with a renewable resource.

Update next day ... preliminary results of a test run with 10 posts indicates the Delete Text function may be working.  I'll spend some more time on it today, and if it holds up I'll send the log to you by email. 

One thing to keep in mind is that the scans we've been doing capture the contents of the post in raw form. I'm thinking of making a USB stick with the entire collection and sending it to you for your backup repository.

The collection is keyed by Post ID, and NOT by topic, author, date or anything else.

SpaceNut arrived and the number of posts per 1000 went up steadily.  The number of 138 seems to be holding.

The run to 49000 will be interesting, to see if 138 repeats again.

HO ho!  SpaceNut increased his production from 138 posts to 142.

I'm taking bets now ... Will SpaceNut deliver more or fewer posts than 142 next series?

The laptop it taking a well earned rest after working this problem for several days straight.

I know it is time for a rest when the browser disappears.  There's no error message. The browser instance is vanished.

WBA reports the error (no input) and stops.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair initiative...

The log file that goes with the test reported earlier (Post 1734) should show up in your email.

The program appears to be working well for these conditions:

color=#
/color:
post_uid
[]

However, this latest test shows a variation on the color parameter:

[c o l o r =663300] << this ** did ** cause a problem for FluxBB

It appears I'll have to add an additional script line for color= if that bogie causes a problem for FluxBB.

For SpaceNut ... TestID00001 was upgraded to Clinician_Antilles.

Clinician_Antilles has more than passed all qualifying tests.  I am hoping he will accept the challenge of helping to recruit others to help with the challenge of settlement of Mars.  It's a big job, and a lot of folks are needed to put it all together.

We are in the back stretch of our run to 80,000.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the next scan shows!

For SpaceNut re #1738 ... Thank you for your welcome to Clinician_Antilles

I was curious about the Antilles reference, so I asked Google ... it turns out there is a medical institution located on an island in the Caribbean.  The island has a rich history, with English, Spanish and Dutch influences.

The next scan is an experimental attempt to cover 2000 posts in a single run.

The 7 hour 1000 post runs seem to be reliable, but they require operator attention every 7 hours.

That pattern is not necessarily convenient.

One 7 hour run and one 14 hour run might work better, from the operator attention standpoint.

Re: Housekeeping

Clinician_Antilles,

Welcome to New Mars Forums.

While most of us are painfully aware of the inevitability of our death, some of us feel that everyone counted amongst the living should focus all of their energy on what they can achieve prior to the hour of their death.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair initiative....

There will be no SpaceNut vs Bandits report this morning....

The laptop tells me when it has been running nonstop for too long ... The browser simply disappears.

The scan reached somewhere in the range of 700 posts last night and generated the Big Red Stop screen, when the browser went away.

I'll let rest and try again this afternoon.

Meanwhile....

The work of kbd512, to help with calculations to show that a nuclear fission power plant could provide fresh water to Phoenix, Arizona, has been forwarded to a citizen of that State who expressed appreciation for the calculations.

It turns out the citizen is interested in the problem of supply of fresh water, due to his participation in finance of agricultural activities in the State over several decades.

It ** also ** turns out that there has been an international/binational study of the prospects of pulling sea water from the Gulf of Cortez.  The study was completed in 2019.  An 800 page pdf document is available for study in case anyone is interested in the details.

Multiple sites on the coast of the Gulf of Cortez were identified for water intake.

Many of the binational concerns were addressed.  In particular I'd like to call attention to ** this ** one ...

The proposed desalination facility (there were five considered and more identified as candidates) would deliver fresh water to a reservoir on the US/Mexican border.  Water would be lifted/pumped up to the elevation of that reservoir.

If I understand the presentation (via Video recording) correctly, the negotiations between the US and Mexico led to a resolution of how to distribute the water produced by the facility.  The facility would be located in Mexico, and it would be funded by the US.  The water produced would be distributed in Mexico. The amount of water produced would be DEDUCTED from the amount of water from the Colorado River that the US must deliver to Mexico by treaty.

The net effect is that the amount of water produced by the facility would be available to consumers in the US.

Now comes the idea of the NewMars Forum (notably including calculations provided by kbd512) to build a duplicate of the Palo Verde nuclear power plant to provide power to make fresh water for both Mexico and the US from the Sea of Cortez.

I am hoping the idea will be fed into the thought process of decision makers in the US, but at this point it is in the hands/mind of the citizen who accepted the idea from NewMars Forum.  It is certainly possible it will go no further, but I am guardedly hopeful.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair Initiative ...

The laptop received several hours of well deserved rest.  It seems ready and willing to try again, so it is back at work, with a goal of reaching 57,000 by 19.0 local time.  If that run succeeds, I'll try again for an overnight 14 hour run.

There are metal coolers available for laptops.  I'll check the local computer store to see what might be available.  When I feel the table under the laptop after it has given up, I note that the table is warm to the touch.  Heat conduction from the laptop through the wood/formica of the work table may be insufficient for such long running activity.

Thanks for starting to work on the posts by Admin!

WBA appears to be ready to begin live testing, after you've had a chance to review the logs sent to you by NewMarsMember.

In the meantime, a scan to 57,000 just finished ... I picked up a laptop cooler fan, and will set it up for an attempt to scan 2000 posts overnight.

This post is reserved for an update on a 2000 post scan currently underway, from 57000-59000.

WBA appears to be ready to begin actual updates, pending your review of test logs and decision to proceed.

In the mean time, scans will continue, with the goal of finding the end of the Bandits some time in November on Earth.

Re: Housekeeping

Thanks for continuing to work on those!

Your mention of interesting ideas in 2004 reminds me of all the interesting posts I've seen while working on the scans.  i don't have time to read very many of them, but I always see a few (usually at the start or end of a scan).  One thing I noticed is that the group had women members before the crash, and apparently none came back after the recovery.

SpaceNut and the Bandits are neck and neck in the back stretch, on the way to a finish line of 80,000.
It appears that SpaceNut may be ahead by a nose, or perhaps by a whisker.

Re: Housekeeping

For SpaceNut re Posts Repair Initiative...

A scan to 64000 is in the final hours of an 18 hour run.

Meanwhile, here are the results from the run to 62000 ...

Oh oh! SpaceNut faded during this stretch, and the Bandits surged ahead!

If we take the Kentucky Derby oval as the (imaginary) course for this series of scans, then 60,000 was the top of the back stretch.

We are now solidly in the home stretch, with the field running well and SpaceNut near the front of the pack.

The laptop gave up after finishing over 24 hours of steady going.
We'll pick up again tomorrow morning.
