It’s been three weeks since I initiated the effort to type in the Dilbert strips and the results are encouraging. About 2 years worth of strips have been typed out. So this Dilbert viewer now has a reasonably sized index for searching.
… and several others.
When I initially planned to share the typing of the Dilbert strips, I anticipated that I would probably type in the most, and almost no one would pitch in. While I still have typed in the most, the contributions of the above have been of great help in more than the obvious way. When I typed out 10 years of Calvin & Hobbes, it took me 5 years. This is 2 years of Dilbert in 3 weeks. If nothing else, it’s pushing me to work harder on this. So thanks again for the motivation.
Here’s my request again to all you Dilbert fans.
- Please go to dilbert-search.appspot.com
- Log in using your Google account and type in as many strips as you like
- Bookmark it for the future, whenever you’re bored
Here’s a Wordle cloud of all the strips typed out so far (with Dilbert and Pointy Haired Boss removed.)
(Seeing that there’s more "good" than "bad", and more "like" than "dislike" or "hate", you might even call Dilbert an optimistic strip.)
