Website Update 06-23-2020

24 Jun

When I first began posting these Website Updates it was my intention to provide a daily listing of the changes to the data in the website, photos, videos and maps added, locomotives whose information had been editted and so forth. This soon became an issue because my pencil and paper record keeping skills leave a lot to be desired, and my memory isn’t what it never was. So…a nefarious plot was hatched to use a computer (gasp!) to do my work for me.

Steamlocomotive.info collects two kinds of data in this regard. Each locomotive’s record contains information about the most recent change made to it. And a database table called WhatsNew tracks major changes. So using these two piles of information, I wrote a system I called Change Reports. There’s a button on the front page called, “Change Reports” cleverly enough which will let you explore this system. You can choose any date or any month back to the middle of 2016 and see what was done on that date or in that month. And now for the fun part: I’m going to publish a link to the day’s report in each of these updates, so you can see what I and the other editors have been up to. The remainder of the updates will deal with new features, new content, new interesting things, etc. So without further ado, here’s a link to today’s report. I hope you enjoy it:

    Your efforts to update and continue to maintain this site are very much appreciated. It is always my first stop when i travel somewhere new, to see what is around. If there is any help i can give you with regards to Swedish entries, just let me know.

    Best regards from Stockholm, George!

      Thank you for your kind reply. It has been four decades (or more) since I last visited Stockholm, and I recall it as a beautiful place. I will keep your offer of help in mind when next I review our information in Sweden.

      Warm Regards,
      Doug
