Day of big surf( down load day zero)
I’ve finally started the long down load of the first 100 books of each category. The processing is happening on the local server (rather than my laptop) and is likely to go day and night for 5-10 days. This gives me a bit more time to sort out the underlying code and documentation. For example which site (US or UK) should I point to? Most of the people I know are in the UK so I am going to point there by default. Perhaps an argument to the applet could set the default.
 
I’m hoping that the first 100 books out of the first few thousand ( for the big categories) will look enough. After all if you could see books laid out on a foot ball pitch how many would you could you check out before getting bored/tried.
