      I want to keep a spreadsheet of my 4s by word list recall so that I can
      retest myself on the ones that I am poor at more frequently than those I
      am okay at.

        I'm sorry it's been quite a while without a response to this.
        Unfortunately there's no easy way to get at your quiz stats within
        Zyzzyva (yet). However, you can access Zyzzyva's database directly
        with a client program called SQLite. Kevin Turner wrote some helpful

          Q 1:

          I'm running Zyzz on a Mandriva Linux machine which conveniently has sqlite
          installed. However it doesn't recognize the .db file:

          [gvc@tuvok OWL2+LWL]$ sqlite Anagrams.db
          Unable to open database "Anagrams.db": file is encrypted or is not a database

          I'm running sqlite 2.8.17 and Z 2.0.5. Is there a versioning problem?

          Q 2:

          I'm getting my kids set up with Z's cardboxes. (Why did it take me so long to
          figure out that the way to get them interested in learning word lists was to
          make it a computer game?) The concept is clear enough, but I don't understand
          what I should do with the prompt I get when I try to exit a cardbox quiz:

          "This Quiz has unsaved changes. Would you like to save it?"

          What am I saving (or not)? The Anagrams.db file seems to get updated every time
          I answer a quiz question, and Cardbox is its own "special" quiz, so does it
          matter at all how I answer this prompt?

            Zyzzyva 2.0.5 uses Qt 4.3.2, which uses sqlite 3.x. sqlite3 databases
            can't be read by sqlite2, so you'll need an sqlite3 client to access
            the Zyzzyva database.

            You're right, this is confusing. It doesn't matter whether you save
            your cardbox quiz; the cardbox contents are saved automatically in
            either case. However, saving a quiz file may be useful if you are
            quizzing over something other than the full contents of the cardbox,
            e.g. if you started the quiz with a search for 7-letter words. In that
            case, you can save the quiz file and load it again later to get
            another 7-letter cardbox quiz.

            Zyzzyva probably should not prompt to save in this situation. I've
            added a new issue for this problem in the issue tracker, thanks!
