|2 October 2001||Still completing the first section of tables...
(the previous links table was altered to be totally generic)
|Modems above will almost certainly need changing. I'm also getting in a bit of a tizz whilst trying to get my head around the relationships involved in the child tables. There are multiple Links for manufacturers, and also for modems. Since the format is pretty much the same for both it makes sense to have a single table, but then a means is needed to easily & quickly extract the correct ones.
I've clearly reached the 'Hard Work' state of this work. Having created so much I'm now beginning to lose track of everything. The first flush of excitement of getting started has faded & now things are beginning to be a grind. Hah! Just wait until I have to enter all the details into the tables - that will be a grind. Still, I need to finish these last child tables & then draw up a relationships chart to make sure that it works on paper. Then construct the PHP scripts to start filling the tables & discover it all needs changing...
|So - 21 tables in this first section (the main section) of modem manufacturers & chipset manufacturers, and certainly not finished. It needs now some PHP pages to create web forms to allow the tables to be filled, and some PHP pages to allow the results to be used. Phew.|
