MakingEME: Tweets and wordcloud

At AB's request, I've done new versions of the WordCloud from tweets during the conference. One includes all retweets and the content is relatively un-curated; in the other two, I stripped out all the retweets, got rid of &, URLs, "th" and "st" after numerals, hash tags, and handles, and expanded "St" to "Saint" (some of these requested by AB). The sites I used were: https://tagul.com/create and http://www.wordclouds.com/

The way to deal with Pausanius' historical errors

After a consultation with Dr. Bowman this afternoon, it has been decided that we are not (at this point) to correct the errors Pausanius makes in his text. Dr. Bowman wants to stay true to Pausanius' "truth" so that we are aligned in our transcription of his work.

For the moment, we will make a note using xml comment:

And then go to the blog post for Ptolemy errors and record our findings.

There has been a blog post created just for the identification of Pausanius errors. In this post, we will indicate

a) section of text
b) error made
C) citations to back our claim
d) affirmation a comment has been added in the encoded text

At a later point, these errors may be gathered and provided in a reference site for the transcribed text or if it becomes problematic there will be another discussion on how to move forward.

Server down issue

Our MySQL server was down ("too many connections"); spent some time reporting, investigating, and fielding and responding to queries from users. In the end a restart fixed it.

TCCD: Meeting and conversion of Convention of 40 docs

Meeting with GL and DH; following that, I used a range of hacky approaches to convert Word doc content from the English and French Convention of 40 docs to basic TEI, for GL to split out into debate days.

Mariage app now deployed

RE fixed the ACL issue that was blocking our access, and although it's still nailed down to the HCMC VLAN, it's working well. Fixed a couple of bugs in the controller.
