Lunch Trance – 2022-05-25 – Top of the Week

I rewrote my chart generator tool and the code is now leaner, better to understand, and faster than before.

Great Success! - Borat - quickmeme
Borat agrees: Great success!

It also generates charts that are identical to last week’s charts… which left me puzzling for a bit until I realized what’s wrong and that the previous version of the code probably didn’t have an actual error. The three missing tracks were caused by a change in the algorithm, yes; however, the tool only ever uses a single algorithm for all charts it calculates, including the ones it uses to determine whether a track is a new entry. And because I have changed that algorithm before last week’s show, it didn’t tell me about the missing tracks because according to the new algorithm those tracks were already part of the week before!

Okay, mystery solved, code better than before, I guess that is a great success! 😄

I initially started messing around with the code because I wanted to know how Tinlicker is still in the charts and basically the answer is “because the track never really drops below place 31.” Well, if you’re consistently in the top third of a daily Top 100 you have kind of earned the right to be in a weekly Top 50. 🙂

Because there is a bank holiday tomorrow I have taken Friday off, and I will be playing a Top of the Month show! It will start at the usual time of 🕚 11:00 UTC+2/CEST to accompany you during lunch and maybe the last hours of your work week (in case you didn’t take the Friday off or don’t actually have this holiday).

The next Top of the Week show will then be on next Wednesday, June 1st, at 🕖 19:00 CEST/UTC+2.
