[bksvol-discuss] Re: being scanned list revision & how to search the list

Hi all,

I haven't really participated in this thread, but I am going to toss in my 
$.02.  Cindy works very hard to put this list together, and keep it updated  I 
think that we should think carefully before making this any harder for her.  
Cindy, you do a great job, and we all appreciate your work.  I would say, just 
do this in the way that's easiest for you.
Best,
Donna

Bob, I started to do that. and I put a sort of heading:title, autho, scanner or 
processor, froofread.I think it's a good idea, but some of the titles are so 
long, that the other sections dn't fit under the headings. I can, and started 
to, put the heading above the line. We'll see how ir works out, ie., what the 
reaction is, when I post the list tonight

Hi Cindy.
If you could separate the fields (author, title, scannor, and proofer) with 
tabs instead of spaces then those who wanted to use a spreadsheet could easily 
convert the file. Also, it would be fairly easy to sort the various fields such 
as title thus making it easier to look for duplicates, or for people trying to 
see what they are down for scanning.
 
I don't know how much trouble that would be but if it could be done I think it 
would make for a neat tool.
 
Just a suggestion.
Bob

Mayrie and Jamie
I think what I'm going to do is work on the list, a little at a time, as I have 
time between proofing and appts and other stuff. I'll work in Word (rtf) and 
double-space between entries. Book title, author, scanner and if someone has 
said  they want to proof, proofer will be on one line.
Maybe after I get rid of duplications ll will be well and the html I attach to 
send to Pavi won't be too large.  It was sending both the being-scanned and 
wish list at the same time that caused the problem. If it turns out to be too 
large I'll change it to html and save as txt and sent it.Jamie and I tested it 
out, and I think hat ill work.

In the meantme, I'll continue to post updates as they occur.

Someone asked how to search the list. Just do a Find for the title or author of 
the book you're considering scanning and you'll be taken to it on the list and 
will also see, at the end of that line, who's scanning it (some people like to 
proof books scanned by particular people--you'll also if somone has asked to 
proofread it

HI Cindy,
 
    The more I think about the size of your list, I see how much space it would 
save not having blank lines between entries.  I respectfully withdraw my 
request for blank lines between entries.  They look nice, but they do take up 
space, and are not necessary if every title/author/scanner is on a line 
together and only one book per line.

If I can set myself to try to  something new (not saying I will--I may just 
stick to Word and skipping lines between entries (at the age of 73, surely you 
can, Roger. I took a look at my document with the htm symbols instead of words, 
lines and spaces and it's not pretty. smile

Well, if it comes to learning how to do something then I suppose I do a better 
job of learning it by doing it myself, but that doesn't mean that a better job 
is a good job. That's a hell of a position to be in, knowing all kinds of 
things, but not being able to do a damned thing.

I am just the opposite. Chem and bio labs were great for me. Lecture was a 
nightmare. I have to do it to learn it. I can't just listen and learn or read
and learn (probably why I can't figure out how to replace the darned thing in 
Open Office).
