Welcome to the site known worldwide as evilution.

The site dedicated to almost everything about smart cars.

It has been a while. Real life has got in the way

OTV from team evilution got married last weekend, the week before I had to buy a suit and all that sort of shit, so that was 2 weekends gone. The weather hasn’t been great and I’ve been doing what I can with the new YouTube channel. Please do me a favour and go and subscribe to the channel. Watch some videos if you like. It’s entertainment, not technical so more people will be able to appreciate it.

OK, on to the new pages of information.

I forgot to add a title. Not that it matters.

I spent 2 weekend ripping out my old office and setting up my new Mac, screens and desk. I can’t believe how much shit I threw away. I’m being messed about by smart for headlights so I’m having issues completing my 1st YouTube project but luckily I’m quite a few videos ahead and have been packing the newer ones out with talking. After smart delivered the wrong headlights I decided to try some of the Chinese ones from AliExpress even though they don’t reckon they’ll work on my 2021 model because it’s a facelift. I’ll work something out I’m sure. Only issue might be the indicators fast flashing since I’m having issues connecting it to DDT4All.

Whilst I was on AliExpress, I bought a load of cheap shit for the smart 453 to test. That video will be on YouTube eventually once everything has arrived. All of this shit can be viewed early on Patreon.

Still having issues with card payments so I have decided to cheat and put the payment option on Etsy and I’ll just do it manually. I’ll have to see if I can send out payment invoices through Quickbooks or some shit like that.

Please come and subscribe to my YouTube channel and watch the videos. I really need the watch hours so I can start earning money. Until I get to that level (4000 hours of watch time) I’m not going to be doing my best work for obvious reasons. Not that my best work will be good of course.

You’re a YouTuber Harry

If I wasn’t already spread thin, I’m making my life harder by doing YouTube videos as well. I’m recording a video each Saturday and Sunday and I’ll release 1 every 2 or 3 weeks. That’ll give me a bit of a video buffer in case I can’t record for some reasons.

Please have a watch and please subscribe to the channel. The longer you watch, the better. evilution on Youtube.

The videos will be posted initially on Patreon, then here, then public on YouTube. If you can support me on Patreon, that’d be great.

OK, onto the usual pages.

Due to the ongoing issue we are having with the card processing company, we are offering subscriptions through Etsy in order for some people to pay with alternatives to PayPal. Click here for Etsy.

Things are getting a bit better

One of the few things that gets to me is accounting. Just the thought of doing the accounts makes me feel depressed and I generally transcend the situation by ignoring them. Obviously that just makes it worse and worse. I finally understood what to do and how they work so I’m up to date and planning to do them weekly so I don’t forget how to do them and I remember what I bought and received.

We are still having issues with PayPal not sending the renewals through on some account. Read the previous news for more information, especially if you received an email saying your membership has been cancelled. If you know you have paid recently, let me know and I’ll sort it out manually.

I’m now part time at work so I have more time to play with cars. This weekend I have also recorded my 1st real video. It’s about a 453 EQ that I’m fixing. I have generally kept away from being on video as I don’t like my voice and I have verbal communication issues. If I think of what I’m going to say, I’ll forget certain words and get things mixed up but I found that if I just go with the flow and just say what I’m thinking, it generally makes sense and comes across as understandable. I generally talk to myself and talk myself through things anyway. Having just edited day 1 into a 30 minute video, I’m amazed how much I quietly mutter swear words. Hopefully I’ll get into the swing of making videos but don’t expect them to be cinematic masterpieces.

The idea is that, although some people like to fix their car, many more people just like to watch other people fix their cars on YouTube. So I have made a Patreon account and added my 1st video. I have some videos in hand so I’ll start adding them over time. I have so many project ideas but only have the space to do 1 at a time.

OK, the new stuff.

Issues with recurring payments – please read

Due to a bug between a plug-in that we use and PayPal, we are seeing many recurring payments not being sent. The only option we have is to reset the account membership level back to “unpaid” and cancel the recurring payment through PayPal and hope that people resubscribe. We are doing this because there’s no way to receive that money and maintain the automatic renewal. We also don’t want PayPal to sort their shit out and suddenly send out payments after we have adjusted the membership level.

Another issue we are having is that PayPal sometimes won’t send out payment or cancellation codes so we are having to stay on the ball and manually check all of the accounts.

The 3rd issue we had was through card payments. We use a company called Stripe who have been great but after a few issues with Indian scammers trying to “card check” stolen card details, Stripe insisted that we add a CAPTCHA to the site. We did that and it broke everything and they don’t know why. So we aren’t receiving payment or cancellation codes from them either and we had to remove the card payment option until the issue can be rectified.

OK, on to the mods.
