893 now, yes.
446 listed in the gui...definitely something weird, must be either still cramming infos together or just dropping some of it. I haven't found anything close to an answer yet. I think I'm going to do a test with parsing the file line by line instead of reading the whole thing in. It might actually be faster, and probably easier to debug.
The "load local" mentioned in the RC thread might be a *little* less than easy, considering the application automatically tries to connect when it starts. If local was just plugged in, a user with a system not connected would have to wait several seconds every time the application is started, or manually close the terminal window every time.
I was thinking of a few possibilities:
1) Start the interface with a fl_choice -- local or web -- and load the main window only if you choose the internet.
2) Commandline/env option to prevent the initial update from running
3) Update automatically, but ask before doing it. This would be the easiest to implement of these 3 options.
