Topic tags/keywords: site question

I am a programmer by trade who hopes of being a decent woodworking hobbiest one day. I truly enjoy perusing this site project list.

I am in the process of writing a database for my own use tracking the projects by project number and page. This is tricky because of the shifting numbers of projects , pages, and dropped projects. I believe I’ve worked out the process to handle the shifting factors but the dropped projects after they are entered still eludes me Once I get projects entered into the database is there a site area were data on dropped project numbers are listed so I can easily adjust the inactive number list?

Hopefully a site mechanic is listening and give a poor ol’country boy some help here.

Or maybe this has already been done?? Is such a database available?

I wasn’t aware that there was a considerable number of dropped projects. If you find any dropped hand plane restores, let us know! :)

I’d humbly suggest that “page” isn’t really a useful thing.
I crossed a few of these bridges whilst writing my own web interface to the LJ projects.
The “project number” is golden – for example, “52584” uniquely identifies this (jolly cool) project.
So I don’t really see why you need to mess with fluxing page numbers.

I was a programmer by trade – now I’m a programmer for fun – if you’d like to start a discussion in private, feel free to fizz me a PM
