LOTR: Started book 5, being the third part. Shelob, Samwise the tall elf warrior and such. Only 7 days left!
Rare minor database corruption bug. Not too bad, it just inserts characters onto paths which shouldn't be there. Been almost 4 years since I wrote it, maybe the encoding part needs an overhaul. I found "A Text Compression Scheme That Allows Fast Searching Directly in the Compressed File" by Udi Manber. Maybe I should give it a test. See how it compares to the incremental encoding (frontal compression) algorithm currently used. This would allow me to move on to v3.0 Anyone know of any other algorithms that might be usable?
