A database could be designed to accommodate events quite easily -

That sounds very interesting. We're starting small here, it's a bit of an experiment to see how we can work without a formal web interface, so that might be more than we need for now. Hold that thought, though, because we'll probably need something more powerful than a spreadsheet when things pick up.  8) ;D

Also, keep in mind that isn't a one shot program development.
The system will improve as we learn.

Remember how our transcriptions improved as we learned? ;)

😆 I've designed about 3 different versions of Old Weather over the years. Each version is an evolution of the one before based on our collective experiences.  ;D

Hi Kathy, I'm awestruck by the talent we've had here waiting for a chance to shine out.  :)

Are you bored?   Are you out of ideas for Christmas presents?

We don't have the new OW running yet, but you could still walk through some pages and try find some ice for Philip and Kevin ;)
You can find the links here, and if you are really enthusiastic you can stake out a claim for pages and/or report pages searched.
