Repercussions and Future Plans.....


Out the door and into the trash went two reams of hard copy proof for the numeric positional frequency charts - no longer needed. Through the Recycle Bin went 500 VBA programs - superseded. The only remaining thing to do is to take both spreadsheets, convert all the normulas to values and compare for accuracy. And with the checks and balances in place in both spreadsheets, there shouldn't be any problems.

Most of the work on this page has stopped when I go out on the road, and I do so frequently. It's not due to the software - I've got both the spreadsheet and the HTML editor on the laptop - but with the difficulty and inherent slowness of using a non-numeric-keypad computer. I always could carry and plug in a full-size keyboard but that's somewhat impractical. Through the dim past I remembered that there might be available a separate numeric keypad for laptops, and, lo and behold, there is. I ordered one Saturday night, should be here late next week. Got a USB connection and 19 keys.....

I hadn't planned on setting up a spreadsheet for the sums frequency charts/page but was fooling around with them last night and there may be a way to use overlays to compute the values I need for the charts..... More on this when I'm ready to start.

Entry #31

I got a numeric pad just like the one you're talking about. I used it at one point when I had to do a TON of numeric input, and I got so fast I couldn't believe it. Here's a link to a picture of the one I got:

Todd -

Same principle. The one I ordered is manufactured by Belkin. It'll not only help with the page, it'll make the spreadsheet and web page work I do on the road go all that much faster. And, being somewhat ambidextrous, sometimes I'll run into a situation on the desktop where I want to use my right hand on the directional keys and my left for numeric entry.........

ty for the info.

Decided to take a break from the heavy posting work this AM - posted 2/2 through 7/10 numeric positional frequency data along with an updated index table and main chart format to accommodate same.

Numeric keypad for laptop should be in later today or tomorrow.

x/77 through x/80 numeric positional frequency data posted. x/77 through x/100 tables complete. Closing in on 90% page completion.

Received numeric keypad today. Very promising on the laptop.
