The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Feb. 6, 2016

I completed a few more housekeeping tasks this week. I "chunked" the "Authors" page into 6 smaller, hopefully more manageable, pages. And corrected some typos in the pdf version of Mein Kampf.

I then started work on redesigning the "chunked" HTML versions of each of the 23 books currently stored on the server. Part of that task involves updating the social media "share" buttons to make them more useful, but that has proved to be very time-consuming, so I'm going to put that part of the redesign off to a later date.

I updated the "copyright" bar at the bottom of each page. It took more than two weeks to do a similar update for the "search function," so, I looked for alternatives. Which meant sculpting a one line Bash script that did the trick. That took me 3 days, but it was better than the alternative of two weeks worth of "finding and replacing" each individual file.

I also figured-out how to "secure copy" the entire website up to the server, rather than uploading one file at a time.

Finally, I also changed the subject of a couple of book pages: Essays of a Klansmen from "Race" to "White Identity" and March of the Titans from "History" to White Identity."

Next week I'm going to "chunk" the "Authors" page, correct spelling of "Adolph" to "Adolf" in the PDF version of Mein Kampf, convert the site to HTTPS, and anything else I might get to.

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Jan. 23, 2016

It took two weeks, to do it all by hand, but the search function has finally been restored on all HTML pages (except printable pages, which don't have a search function).

I also set-up remote login so I can more easily update pages, without having to resort to uploading 1 page at a time.

Next week I'm going to work on updating the copyright for the site and, if there is enough time, I will add a "Site Map" and "About Us" page, otherwise, I'll do them the following week.

I continued work on the search function this week. I updated approximately 1,300 pages by hand with the new code. All of the top-level, subject, and author pages are complete, plus about 250 (through the letter "G") of the book pages are finished.

I have about 700 pages left. Hopefully, they should be done by the middle of next week.

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Jan. 9, 2016

I got back to the "housekeeping" by starting the project to add links to the "Similar Titles" list for each title page and the "See Also" list on each author profile page. After a couple of days I had completed seven title pages and realized it would take about a year-and-a-half to do all 879 title and author profile pages. Here's an example of what the pages will look like with the lists: Aesthetical and Philosophical Essays by Frederick Schiller.

So I shelved it and began work on fixing the search function for the website -- which hasn't worked in a long time. After three days I finally got it to work, you can check it out on the home page. Now, I have to add that same code snippet to all 1600-1700 pages -- probably by hand. That'll probably take a day or two.

Also, on Monday and Tuesday, while working on the cross-linked lists, I started work on creating an Aryan Homeschooling Curriculum page. I've set that aside until the housekeeping bits are done.

There's a lot of work yet left to be done on the redesign project. To learn more about our plans for The Collection please see our "road map."

I hope everybody's having a Happy New Year so far.

I took a vacation this past week so there's nothing to report. I'll be back to editing the Collection on Monday, there'll be more to report next week.

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Dec. 26, 2015

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.

I finished updating the "Books By" and "Books About" sections of the last 146 author profile pages this past week, adding the first published date to each title.

I'm going on vacation for a week, when I get back I'll start working on updating the "Similar Titles" and "See Also" sections of the the individual book pages and the author profile pages, respectively.

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Dec. 19, 2015

Another slow week.

I updated 150 more author pages. There's, roughly, another 150 to go. I'm hoping to finish this phase of the "housekeeping" by Christmas; after which I'll start on the next phase, which is to add links to the "Similar Title" and "Similar Authors" section of the author profiles.

December 12, 2015

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Dec. 12, 2015

Not much to report this week.

I continued re-ordering the "Books by" and "Books about" lists on the "Author" pages; changing them from their current alphabetical listings to one based on first published/written dates. I did another 135 pages this week. At this rate, it should take another two weeks to complete.

I also made some small changes to the style of those lists; changing the text alignment from "justified" to "left," which should make them slightly easier to read.

The "housekeeping" chores I originally thought would take a week or two are proving to be a lot more onerous than first thought, they'll probably take another 6 weeks or so. I should be back to posting new books around the first of February!

December 5, 2015

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Dec. 5, 2015

On Monday, I put the finishing touches on the list of 101 Books Every White Man Should Read.

Then I started working on rearranging the bibliographies on the "Author" pages, changing them from their current alphabetical listing to "first published," with dates. (Here's an example of the Hilaire Belloc page.)

I'm averaging about 40 authors per day so I figure it will take appox. another two weeks to finish. Then I'll start adding cross-indexed links to the "Similar Titles" and "Similar Authors" lists, on the "Author" pages.

November 28, 2015

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Nov. 28, 2015

This past week, I expanded the "Must Reads" section from 12 books to 101, creating a list of the 101 most important books to the survival of the White race.

Such a list is extremely difficult to compile with seemingly three books left off the list, for every one on it. Many others could have been included, in most cases, I listed the book that was the most recent title representative of its topic. And I included at least one book from the most important topics.

Also, the books are listed roughly in the order they should be read for someone who is new to the Truth. For those more familiar please read in any order.

November 21, 2015

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for Nov. 21, 2015

I started the "housekeeping" work this week. I restored and updated the home page and created a separate page for the "road map."

Also, I updated the "Must Reads" page, which currently contains the 12 books that I think every White man and woman should read, in order to understand the current geo-political situation. I also worked on expanding that list to 101 books. I vetted all 879 books in The Collection and selected the 101 most important, then placed them in the order I think they should be read. Next, I'll create the page with links. That should be available by the early part of next week.

There's a lot more "housekeeping" to do. I originally thought it would take a week or two, but as I got into it, the "todo" list got longer and longer -- currently I think it's going to take another 3-5 weeks to finish. At that point, I'll start Stage 3 and add more books to the list.

The Colchester Collection of Pro-White Books Weekly Update for November 14, 2015

Phase two of The Colchester Collection website redesign project is finished!

This past week, I cross-linked the final ten titles from the original catalog pages for a total of 879 books in The Collection, at this stage. All of which are now linked to their respective Amazon hardcopy pages, and to any Kindle, PDF, and/or HTML pages available on the web.

Some of the titles added this week, include:
I'm going to do some housekeeping, like redesigning the home page, fixing the search function, and a few other small tasks -- that I've been too busy to get to over the last 18 months -- then I'm going to begin Phase Three, which will be to add another 600 or so titles. The housekeeping tasks should take about a week or two to complete.

I added another 15 books, this week, to the new and improved catalog pages, for a total of 870 -- all cross-linked to their respective Amazon hardcopy pages, plus any Kindle, PDF, or HTML versions available on the web.

There are an additional 11 titles in the original catalog pages which are linked to their Amazon hardcopy pages, for a total of 881 books in The Collection. We're hard at work linking them to any electronic versions available on the web. We hope to have all 881 books linked by November of this year (2015).
