Y'all like horse races - no?

You've maybe seen the win in yesterday's Kentucky Derby. Now here's a slow horse but plodding along. After 7 weeks on this new project (last report here), I have made a little progress.
Books % In data Draft Final % Complete
Chapters by verse Verses Chapters Verses Chapters Verses
Torah 187 25% 5853 27 455 27 455 1.5 7.8%
Former Prophets 147 18% 4317 12 107 12 107 .2 2.5%
Later Prophets 166 17% 3926 22 262 22 259 3 6.6%
The 12 67 4% 1050 25 399 25 399 8 38.0%
Books of Truth 223 19% 4509 193 3624 193 3618 156 80.2%
Scrolls 39 4% 850 39 745 39 745 17 87.6%
Other 100 13% 2979 2 12 2 12 0 0.4%

929 23484 320 5604 320 5595 185.7
23.9% 23.8%
This is not discouraging, though I am occasionally discouraged. (Final is never really final of course.) I am up from 19.8% to 23.8%. Hey! at 4% every two months, that's only 3 years to completion. But there will be long periods when little happens, like when we are on holiday, which will be a substantial part of the last two months of this year. [Actually I am not up I am down - 19.5% is done, 23.8% is ready to do - quite a difference]

I have caught up with myself with respect to the music data - almost all up to date for all the pages in my database. Samples there are galore on Google Drive but these are from a period extending over the last year, so not all of them were produced with the same version (current 3.1).

Work days remaining 7 weeks ago was 1350. Now the estimate is 1278 work days so maybe this will start to go faster. I don't track my time but I have not worked 72 3.5-hour-days in the 42-day period. (At least I don't think so). [Your editor says slow down].

You can see the progress on the Kata Bob page. 

99% of my current input text is up to date with the music - only 2 chapters left in Qohelet that I will do a bit at a time. Job is now all done so I can do some stats on ole-veyored and atnah in 2 of the 3 books of truth. See next post.
