Postmortem funding, and thoughts about :

— I did not succeed to deliver what I promised at first, that is “a large scale search engine for the common—written full-stack with scheme”.

It was done with Python.

I will not argue at this time why, and how, the other boxes are checked.

Still, that is a great achievement for me.

And it demonstrates that search also known as full-text search is within reach.

Can the algorithm be improved?


Can the code be improved?



Feedback I got is:

> Since it works, I should host it myself, and market it, and request paid subscriptions for regular users.

With the strong hope that I will put the project in motion, and with enough entropy to let me focus on other problems.

Basically, so far, I choose the path of least resistance: Fastest, shortest cycle of work-reward.

The drawback is that I get small rewards directly from my free time work, it is also more difficult to dedicate time for the coding.
