just just fyi to everyone, i just got back from driving to boise and back, about 16 hours of driving total... went out for a job interview and it went pretty well, but i won't know if i got the job until the 9th or so. anyways, i just wanted to let everyone know that my email is super backed up on top of studying for this exam thing i gotta do AND get StP back in order, so i'm going to be super busy, but i'm also back home so i'll be hanging out in the discord most of the time.

my current plans with stp are to:

  • finish setting up sidebar blocks
  • get donation addon back online (waiting for a bug fix in the addon)
  • set up new version of latest users/threads block at top of home page (waiting for a bug fix in the addon)
  • reorganize help area
  • get featured threads page back online
  • install improvements to moderator system (mods will be able to ban with ban reason instead of using points among other features that will be detailed soon)
  • a whole mess of design/css/ui fixes

there are some others, but they're lower priority so i'll get to those once the above is done.

also, i'm going to set up a weekly video chat that will eventually become the talk show thing i've been talking about. i need to get my email inbox cleared out first though, so more on that in a few days.

on a side note, bbcode in user profiles (i.e. embedding images/videos) is currently disabled, the addon that was enabling that is broken. waiting for a new addon to be developed...

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$105.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Hey thanks for the recent uploads to the library, looks like useful stuff!
Nearly done with the electrical system of the van. 170Ah Lithium ion, 2/4K inverter, 400 watt of solar, 40A MPPT controller. Should be up and running (or explode) this weekend.

After that I have to finish the primary work table, which will be the last big piece of the build.
