I notice that the supersearch script is erroring with a 500 or similar on the London site.
Could someone who has access, please take a peek at the server logs and find out what is happening.
If it's a perl scripting problem let me know, as it's my code :).
However, I doubt that this is the case, as the same script and version of the OpenGuides site is running elsewhere with no problems.
I made a few entries on the London openguide tonight, and in each instance
received an error similar to this when commiting the edit:
Search::InvertedIndex::add_index() - Unable to read 'ie_000000000be6' record.
Database may be corrupt. at /home/earle/openguides.org/lib/CGI/Wiki/Search/SII.
pm line 204
Despite this, the entries were apparently entered into the Wikki.
Many of the pages on the Open Guide to London have acquired bizarre
characters in locales and categories. These characters are
concatenating the locales and categories into something bizarre. See
oglondontest=> select metadata_value from metadata where node='Marylebone Station' and metadata_type='category' and version=8;
I suspect this might have something to do with the wiki hoover -
certainly the "last five nodes" edited by it all exhibit the problem.
Ivor, can you investigate please?
Argh, I really don't have time to work up something to fix all the
mangled data right now. I'm going to have lunch and a think.
I notice that there are still many pages with http://grault.net/grubstreet/pictures/left_arrow.gif etc.
Is it worth doing a global replace? I could probably do that with a modified client side wiki hoover. I could replace all G/S images
referenced on the site if you want.
Please let me know.

3 s.f that is the accuracy of the number of the beast

I was *this* ---> [ ] close to adding in the previous message "...and if

Unfortunately, the status quo just isn't good enough, for example because
it means Wikitravel can't use material from us.
I am now looking to Attribution-ShareAlike license, much like Wikitravel. A
side-effect of this is that we will not be able to include Wikipedia
content, and so will need to replace/rewrite any that exists.
If there are no objections by the end of the day, I am going to begin the
one month "grace period" (allowing material to be withdrawn due to objection
to the licence) by tomorrow. One month after that (let's say on New Year's
Day, for neatness) I will apply the license to cover all material on the Open
Guide to London.
Implementation note: there are some places on the Guide where excerpted
content occurs. Please, if you know of/discover any of these, ensure they
comply with British law's fair dealing statute and mark them clearly.
 See Wikitravel GFDL article linked from earlier post.
 For the London Guide; modify as necessary if you decide to apply the
same policy for a Guide in your country.
 Although I have a sinking sensation that this may be obsolete given the
recent application of the European Copyright Directive:
