Not quite.  17 plus 3 for sharing some department chair responsibilities.  5 total sections of 3 different courses, but nothing brand new at least.  I'll be up for air (and grading catchup) for a week in March during spring break.

No TAs here.  But the classes are small so it's not horrible.

We can merge in pull requests, but not run the actual updates on Jim's server.
But if Jim were to just blindly update with the new data that we merge in, I suppose that's possible.

Quick note: an update to the standard DB just finished, but I need to leave (and disconnect my computer from the network) before the dev DB update finishes.  That will complete when I get home late tonight.

But if Jim were to just blindly update with the new data that we merge in, I suppose that's possible.

If we have an experienced project member who is comfortable with running git commands and running scripts from the Unix command line (definitely including Linux and Mac with Python 3.7 installed, probably could be set up on Windows also), I am happy to put some effort into setting things up to allow others to run.  Server accounts can be created and permissions set up so multiple people have the ability to run complete site updates.

That said, while I will definitely be busy, I don't anticipate a situation where it will be more than a few days between site updates.

Jim,

I noticed an error with the Wisconsin State Highways. Wisconsin 74 runs from I-41 in Menomonee Falls to WI190 near Sussex, I couldn't find the highway on there.

Thanks,

The Travel Mapping site and forum are temporarily down because of a network connectivity problem.  I believe I know what's wrong, and I expect to be able to resolve it this morning.  I just need to get physical access to it, and then the fix should take just a few minutes.

I haven't seen any posts on here in almost 3 months.  Makes me a little nervous.  Just wanted to make sure the project was alive and kicking!

Yep, it's still alive. :) A travel mapping forum was created, so new posts are going there instead of here. Here is the link to the travel mapping forum: http://tm.teresco.org/forum/index.php

And of course the project itself is headquartered at http://tm.teresco.org/ now.  We've added a ton of highways, greatly enhanced the maps and stats available, and added dozens of users since the discussion moved from here to our own forum.  Come join us!

I want to thank Jim for salvaging this site, and also for getting Indiana State Highways added.  It has really motivated me to make more effort in clinching highways.

It wasn't just Jim.  Jim may be hosting it, but this was a conglomeration of folks who banded together to get Travel Mapping off the ground.

Yes, I was going to say this same thing.  My main contribution has been on the overall design, implementation of data processing side, and some of the web interface.  Much of the web front end and virtually all of the huge improvements in quality and greatly expanded quantity of highway systems included are thanks to a larger group of contributors (the list at the bottom of that page is incomplete, these are just the people who have put their names forward to include in the list).  And not on that list are the many users who send in corrections, updates, and suggestions on the TM forum who help us improve everything about the project.

Bottom line, I think I can speak for all of us involved in saying that we're glad so many old CHM users and a good number of new users have found TM and are enjoying it.
