A Minor Milestone
I have just finished extracting information from my fiftieth Disneyland Line. Depending on the length and content, each one may take from twenty minutes to several hours to get through. It partly depends on how many terms I can wring out of each issue. Lists of Cast Members celebrating service anniversaries, for example, is cognitively easy but takes some time to add the details--particularly for Cast Member names new to the thesaurus. Other times I get organizational information (such as a department name or a role I haven't seen before) and I spend time trying to figure out how it all fits together. Often, however, I can't figure it out to my satisfaction and just wait until I have more information to figure out the hierarchy. Anyway, I figure I have about 2,000 more to go... which would sound more manageable if that were all I had to research!
