I finally started working on Sat Nav app last night.. Not having maps is getting tiring specially for testing.. i guess i will have to download at least a big chunk of maps and set up my own map service so that i can keep testing – its getting very very annoying.
Apart from that i have been reworking on my second favourite topic.. Frequencylists. One of the chaps asked me a couple of questions and i must say good questions… the word count, the file count etc etc. In fact if it wasn’t for him i personally wouldn’t have bothered with this whole – how true is the corpus. I remember talking to a greek user about a greek list on similar lines however this time it was english and i could deal with it easily :)
He cleverly pointed out that on opensubtitles.org each movie at times had multiple subtitles and i check my repository and that was true… i reworked the algorithm to pick up only one set. Before i left for home, i kicked off the code and the frequency lists should all be built by now.
I might just upload the whole lot instead of only sharing 50k. People can deal with large lists :)
Besides all this, i finally fixed my dishwasher. It was a leak in water reflow system ? took the gasket off, cleaned it nicely… bit of rust, cleaned that and put it all back togather. My tests showed that second time around i did a pukka job. Well done me :) Guess i can concentrate on coding fully now.
