How big is your database?
« on: January 20, 2010, 01:35:15 am »
Just curious how much data people have in their database.  I'm quite sure that I'm in the low end myself.

I've got 713 movies and 26134 people in mine. :)
Thanks,

Mitch

0 people (they can't act anyway - hehe)
64 Megabytes

Well, that's a rather flaccid little thing, CAD.  ;D

Mine has 1,714 visible movies; all have posters and 183 have screen shots (mostly 4 or 8 each)
216,911 invisible movies (from filmographies)
25,667 people, of which 5,717 have a photo
588 Megabytes

 8) I win! ;)

Oh it's not about size...it's how you use it...

Consider 1,000 movies is about 1,500 hours viewing.  If you have a smaller number, you have more chance to view them !!

2,874    movies.  Comedy / Drama / Horror / Thriller account for 90% of my titles.
51,898  people.   I had more, but did a database cleanup.
8,387    photos.  Currently uploading more.  Hoping for 60% coverage of my database, someday.

310 mb.  I run a tidy ship  :)  Actually, I have to reload all my posters after my 'clean-up'... >:(

Movies I've actually sat down and watched start to end...maybe 25%.  There's a good argument for a smaller database.  Actually, I used to keep all the movies I downloaded (no matter how bad) so I wouldn't re-download them.  Now I have PVD and can delete them instead...

When someone says to me that he only listens to good music, I tell him I never heard of anyone who claimed to listened to bad music ;D

2362 people in database.

326776 KB whatever that means?

Did I ever tell you I love watching films.  ::)

I have only started to use the poster and screenshot facility recently, wish I had started it at the beginning :(

Where do you get your pictures and posters from Nostra, as most sites I find do not allow you to copy the poster/pictures?

I use the Kinopoisk.ru (they have a pretty good selection of posters there) script for posters. Screenshots are created automatically from the video file.

Ok, I have used  them now Nostra, overcame the language problem, and found the pictures of the actors handy, so then I found out about the poster section using the last film which I saw which I fell in love with called "Welcome To Dongmakgol", the trouble is that the files are so small, (12kb) which renders them useless as when required they come out the size of a UK postage stamp?

I did manage to get some pretty decent ones from the main site, sadly this is no good for older films. The hunt is still on :)

Lots.  ;D

Posters (box art, actually) for most movies, screenshots for many, and at least one photo for every person. It adds up!

Seeing as I've been entering data over the course of about 5 or 6 months, you'd think I'd be further along -- but I have only entered a fraction of my movies into the database so far. (I've done most of the "easy" work -- those titles which exist as files, rather than DVDs or VHS. Yes, videotape. I'm old school.  ;D )

Right now, PVD shows I have 1017 movies, but that's not entirely accurate, since a not-insignificant number of those entries are TV series. Every entry in my database (including each TV episode) has a poster and several screenshots (whew, that's the part that took the most time, over the past several months). It shows I have 48,142 people in the Db. Current size of my database is 883MB.
