I’ve been working on a new site feature for a little while, and tonight I decided to launch it. Click on suggestions in the top menu bar. From there you can add new features you’d like to see, bugs you may have found, or vote on other users ideas. This should help me prioritize where my time is spent. Feel free to add as many items as you like. But you can only vote 30 times each month, and only 5 time in each category (so doing some simple math, in actuality you can only vote 15 times right now), so use those votes wisely 😉
Just wanted to say I’ve started accepting Bitcoins. So now you’ve got the choice of either Paypal or Bitcoins.
Today I setup some website performance improvements. Specifically, I setup local caching, which makes a HUGE difference when not logged in. It helps when you are logged in too, just not quite as noticeable. I also setup CloudFlare. This will cache basically all of the website on their servers which are distributed around the world.
Between these two things I’ve noticed a very large speed improvement.
So hopefully nobody notices anything but a faster website 😉
I’ve also changed the theme of the forum. It fits in with the rest of the website much better now.
I’ve decided to push the latest nightly to the Stable branch. I see quite a few crashes that have been fixe and people aren’t getting, so this will take care of those.
But the latest version is still missing features of things I’ve been working on, but I feel the crash fixes are more important than 100% feature completeness.
That being said, next time you launch AutoSense you should get the update 😀
If you want to assemble your AutoSense shield yourself and save some money, use coupon code “SELFASSEMBLE” at checkout. 10% will be knocked off the price of the shield. However, if something goes wrong when assembling your shield and it needs repairs, you’ll be charged accordingly.
Also, if you want to purchase a temperature sensor or two, and you’re purchasing a shield at the same time, select “No Connectors” for the sensors. You’ll get the proper connectors installed because the shield also comes with the connectors.
YAY. The shield PCBs have arrived. So now it’s time to start assembly and testing. This should make finishing the firmware much easier.
