Uploading Files To Bs01: Why I'm So Slow At It

Posted by Swert , Apr 07 2012 · 283 views

So, this is mostly a post about apologies, especially given I'd rather have had it done weeks, even months ago. But, this is what held me back.

I can only explain via visual aid, so here they are.


Posted Image


On picture one, you can clearly see 16 folders. These are labeled 0-9, and a-f. Now, these are the base folders BS01 images were under. It is all sorted in this format. Were all the files in these 16 folders, I woulda been finished a long time ago. Sadly, this is not the case.

Posted Image

This is Folder 0, which has folders 00-09, and 0a-0f. So that's 16 folders extra. Whoops. No biggie, right?

Posted Image

This is folder 00. I even unblurred the folder name so you could see that. So now in lies the problem. I have to enter all 16 folders, in order, and upload them to BS01 directly. Then I can use a script on the site that imports them all to BS01's database. Simple, yes?

Posted Image

This is the folder I'm currently on. images/b/b0/. So, by the math, I have already gone through 176 folders just to get to THIS ONE. This is not counting the original 16 folders, by the way. That would make the count 187 (11 folders to get to B ). I have 256 folders in total to upload.

So, with that knowledge and those visual aids, plus my hectic work schedule, can I honestly and realistically be blamed for this upload taking so long? Probably, but at least now you all know why it takes so long.

No! You need to work harder for our benefit! Your life is unimportant! Only we matter! Get to work or you're fired! Fake! Get a life! And by get a life, I mean, do everything we ask!

I don't actually mean that, of course, and even though it's disappointing, I can live without the pictures for now. No, you know who really needs to get back to work? Greg.

This is how MediaWiki organizes files, actually. It probably is the simplest method beyond a doubt.
