:) I already thought of that

What would probably happen, is the traffic (amount of posts) would drop by half, but the quality would only increase 2%

    Nah, very few people wouldn't post as a result - the people coming here are doing so because they have no other way to get the information - and I'm betting the quality of initial posts would improve by a significant percentage.

[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
[ambrus]: Corion: those are good rules.
[ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
[ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
