PCHeintz72's Filtered Full List Update-03/23/15

Do not request fics that a simple search engine lookup can find. Follow the rule when naming threads

Can't say I ever took much interest in your lists other than how you used them to provide links in your fic search replies which I always appreciated. That and a mild curiosity on what program you used.

I wrote it, partially as an experiment, partially as a challenge. I was unimaginative with the name, and merely called it 'Lister' (the prototype was actually called Link Hacker). Added features as time went on.

Basically, it is a linked list processor program able to be run directly, or from batch files, and has configurable INI files. It merges generated information from scanning my fanfiction download directories and comparing against my favorites folders to give lists of stories with all the links for the story/author combination and add description and some stats... I included smart generation of ATOM/RSS feeds. It generates reports in CSV, BBCode, TXT, HTML, OPML, XML, and a few others. Has some other abilities to make it do things not related to fanfiction as well, so won't bother to list them here as not relevent.

This is the silver lining when good writers slow down or stop. The reading-list shrinks, giving us more time to do other things. I suppose the Filtered Full List moving out counts in that.

They're useful sometimes, so certainly not a complete absence of interest at least. I know i've found some fics and authors through your lists.

Of authors who never posted on this forum about 70% of the authors I follow are ones I learned of through the list.
