Disappointing Day
  30th October, 2018
I struggled to achieve anything of use yesterday.


The SoCoder Ajaxification stuff is kinda working to a degree, but I need to figure out a way that I can post hundreds of "Chat" elements into the database without it completely filling up with millions of tiny one-word SQL database entries.
I'm currently thinking of setting up a secondary database to hold just the specialist "chat" messages.

I used to have one for the old MudChat, but that was only temporary, and would clear itself out every day. If I want to integrate chat directly, as though it were a forum topic, then I'd need a lot more elements to be permanently in the SQL database, and that's going to be a little bit hectic!

Meanwhile, JNKPlat level designs are starting to slow to a crawl. They're all getting rather samey, and I need to spice things up a little, but ideas for new tiles have all but stopped!!
Maybe I just need to come up with a few alternative tiles.. The same sort of tiles, but with slight tweaks to make them a bit more varied.


Meanwhile, meanwhile, I didn't even bother with the Advent Collexion at all, yesterday. Instead, I grabbed my current book (Railway Adventures, still unfinished, but I'm about 3/4 of the way through) and spent a good couple of hours reading about different trains!

A nice gentle end to the day.
