About Me

Joined PTP in 2011. On the BoardOfAdvisors. Personal website: http://danrasmussen.org/ .

Expended lots of effort with the goal of getting the word out about the Personal Telco Project. First, lots of work on the PTP wiki. Then re-wrote the homepage so outsiders could understand what Personal Telco was about. I made Dashboard so that I, and others could more effectively keep the wiki up-to-date and relevant/interesting. I rewrote PTP's listing for Calagator and for a while took it on myself to submit PTP events to Calagator in an attempt to seek new volunteers. I tried to visit all of the Personal Telco nodes in Portland, and eventually did visit most of them. Here's a map of the results: http://pdxwifimap.com/ptp_audit_2012 . That project became http://pdxwifimap.com/, another attempt of mine to draw attention to the Personal Telco Project. It's also a learning project. PDX Wifi Map is based on OpenStreetMap and does things I haven't seen on any other wifi map.

Pages I've Created

Macro Test Bed

Macro: RecentChangesList / RecentChanges()

RecentChanges takes up a lot of space! Possible to limit output? See Dashboard for RecentChangesList.

Macro: RandomPage(integer) , RandomPage, PageCount

Several random pages, (out of 3348 total) :

Random page, twice: PersonalTelco/2017-08-09 / PersonalTelco/2019-03-13

Macro: FullSearch() / FullSearchCached()

Pages where DanRasmussen appears in text. Is there some way to show most recent pages edited by DanRasmussen, vs. being in the page text? FullSearchCached is for searches that don't change much. I don't know how often the cache is refreshed, but would like to figure that out. "Clear Cache" is one of the Page Actions.

Macro: EditedSystemPages

...

Macro: TitleIndex, WordIndex, WantedPages, OrphanedPages

Macro: AbandonedPages

See AbandonedPages Quite a long list! Many PTP wiki pages haven't been edited forever - e.g. historical meeting notes. Wonder what the cut-off date is for this function...
