Quotes of the Day Mailing Archive
Quotes of the Day is, basically, a daily mailing of quotations, but it is convenient for some to access them from a web browser. Like when one of the quotes contains a naughty word and corporate e-mail systems decide you shouldn't read it!
Due to an injury that shouldn't really have been that big a deal, there were no quotes mailed for several months starting in late summer of 2012, and only a few in August and September. Normal distribution resumed in late April of 2013, only to be interrupted by another health issue in August. Things really went south in January 2014 with a cancer diagnosis requiring surgery, chemo, and radiation. Only in late November was I able to return to my duties as Quotemaster.
My very first issue, 9 June 2000 — QOTD is Back
The most recent archived issue, 22 May 2015 — Arthur Conan Doyle
As of March 2009, I'm starting over. It's still a little rough at the moment, and I've only entered about 450 issues here. (That leaves a staggering 2,000 to go, but it's about ten times faster than the old way so I think it's going to get done.) All the navigation isn't in place, so you almost have to stumble around for things. Because the issues shown above are already available, I'm filling in the database from both ends. The existing pages will remain until they are replaced by the new system.
I'll have better index pages in the next few days. Hooray! As of Monday (23 March), the monthly index pages are working, including previous and next month links! (As long as you don't go past either end of the total date range.) I'll be working on a full layout by year and month a bit later, for now I'll focus on getting more issues in here, I'm up to 654 as of this morning.
Tuesday evening (24 March) About two thirds done, and I've overlapped the old archive on both ends. Every issue ever mailed is now here. Haven't fixed the "out of range" problem yet. Moved the new archive to the top of the page, as it's now the much larger part.
Wednesday night (25 March) Several hundred more issues posted in the new format, only one year (2004) left to go. I might even get that done after I put out tomorrow's quotes, but I doubt it. I did get the menus fixed: When you get to the first or last page, either of the daily issues or the monthly indices, there isn't a link that takes you off into a black hole.
I didn't note the date, but this was fully caught up by the end of March. We curently have 3,795 of issues archived.
