- Jun 15, 2014Making progress on the disk. I have all the stats in, except for the
split stats (multi-team players). This is a painful process that will
take a couple weeks, as I hand cut and paste from the NHL.com stats
pages. If anyone is adept at SQL stuff and can query and pull down what
I need, I'd be grateful and it would save a couple weeks in the process.
The voting site is going to close Monday, as we have more votes than we
need (THANKS to all that voted) to get the ratings reconciled. I'll be
importing those in the next week or so when Ken gets done running the
ELO process on them.
I hope to be testing by the first/second week in July. I'm going to
expand the # of test seasons per set this year by a factor of 2.5. I'm
running a pretty fast computer, and the tweaking/adjusting takes much
longer than running a ton of seasons on auto (unlike the old days), so
it's time to go to higher runs and get better statistics. I hope this
results in a more accurate disk. Nice to have a full 82 game season to
work with also...last year's short season made the disk a bit more
variable than I'd like.
My goal is to get the disk out well before the NHL season starts, say
mid-Sept. Lots of crap can happen between now and then (like the
legendary hard drive crash of 5 years ago, where I ended up buying a
similar drive off ebay to scavenge the controller card to get the drive
I'll keep you all updated on how it's going as the summer progresses.
