Welcome to the site known worldwide as Evilution.
 The site dedicated to almost everything about smart cars.

Moved house
Things have been quiet here for the passed few months. I bought a house.
That meant that everything got packed up so I couldn't play cars.
Then I had to move everything, unpack what was needed, do house stuff etc.

Well, finally I have actual internet and although everything is still in boxes and I currently don't have a workshop like I did before, things are heading in the right direction.

I'm going to form a company, build an office/workshop in the garden and get right back to taking smarts apart. The new workshop will be bigger and better though.

I have managed to find a bit of time to put some info up.

If you are on Facebook, like the evilution page and see some random stuff. It's usually more interesting or silly rather than technical.

Car unlocks but doesn't start and shows the key icon.
Fuse taps.
Smart Stereo Variants.
Roadster Brake Pad Change. Redone with larger photos.
Launch control.
Roadster Heater Control Cable Faults.
451 Exhaust Types.

After a bit of downtime and house-buying, I'm back.

CSV file to the rescue.... sort of.
As some of you already knew, our server contacted the plague and leprosy and exploded into a million pieces (we counted). In the sadness of the loss, the back up server took its own life. This meant we had a catastrophic data loss and the earliest working back up we had was the 1st of February.

So, anyone who signed up between Feb 1 and March 27th magically disappeared in a big puff of smoke.

I manually added about 100 of the 700 missing people (the people who actually noticed and emailed me asking why they couldn't log in) whilst a piece of code was being devised that would inject a CSV file of log ins, back into the database.

This worked but there were 2 drawbacks.

Everyone was emailed a new password which confused people who didn't know the situation.

The main issue was that we only had people's email addresses that they used through PayPal. This didn't necessarily match the email address that they had originally used to sign up. So, if they hadn't seen the new password email sent to their PayPal address, they wouldn't be able to log in or request a new password.

So, if you can't log in, try your PayPal email address and request a new password. Or email me and I'll look into it.
