So ... I don't always acknowledge every e-mail as it arrives, or even
every transcription. But, I'm documenting them as I go along, keeping a
scorecard of how we're doing & plan to write once or twice a week
letting you all know the nature of the progress being made.
Here are the numeric facts:
total pp %
Prov pp trans'd done
---- ----- ------- ----
AB 5025 841 16.7%
SK 6850 377 5.5%
MB 9400 117 1.2%
Total 21275 1335 6.3%
Overall - 6.43% of the pages are transcribed and online; in Alberta
we've done 16.7%. Way to go!

the next day or three.
