Bless you Batch importing (and a certain beta user!)!

As I discussed previously, the biggest pain in the @ss certainly is importing all the prepared data, validating it and formatting it.

Initially, we carefully crafted a callcard database using excel, documenting all the callcards we know of out there. Then it came to manually typing up this data in the site site and we realised that even though the site has been designed with a DB backend, its still gonna take forever to import all the data by hand (and we've still to touch up all the scanned in images).

After talking to one of our beta users, he made us aware of a process that would let us import this data directly into the database... so do not adjust your tv sets over the next few days... the big data import begins...wish us luck!
