3000 upscaled images = carpal tunnel pain, RSI and tendonitis
My thumb is burning, the back of my hand is in pain and the elbow on my other arm feels very tight. I've been editing too many photos.


The website also had a back-end update to make it more secure and quicker.

As with all updates, loads of stuff stopped working so we are fixing shit as we find it.

AI Upscaling takes a long time. Each page has a separate folder of photos and each folder has to be loaded separately into Gigapixel. The resulting photos are saved into a separate folder. Photoshop is then used to batch process all of the photos in that save folder. The output is another folder. These photos are then uploaded to the appropriate folder via FTP to the evilution server. These photos are also saved to 4 separate locations for the super redundancy. Each folder takes about 5 minutes from start to finish. The website has about 1700 folders.That's about 140 hours of work. I'm getting through it slowly.

Not much to report
Not much been going on in the workshop for 2 reasons. Firstly it is bloody cold outside and secondly, I spent a lot of time on 1 project and it was a failure due to bad info. I had to walk away and take a break

453 Auto Wiper Coding.
451 Centre Console Removal.

Problems signing up or logging in?
Social media. Facebook for non technical smart nonsense. Instagram for non smart personal shit.
Buy me beer, chocolate and car parts.

Most of the hard work going on currently isn't immediately obvious.
Firstly, I have AI upscaled another 200 photos.
Secondly, OTV (site coding legend) has been working on a full site update which will be more secure, work better, look better and will work much better on all devices.
Thirdly, we are working on an eBay style selling site specially for smarts and parts.

Hopefully it will give people a 1 stop shop to pick up parts.

Don't worry, I am not dead
I'm still here. I have just had a large project for work and that was more favourable than being out in a cold workshop. I have been doing a few new pages of info and splitting pages out from other info to make things easier to find.

However, mainly I have been running hundreds of photos through AI to make them larger and clearer. I'm not going to link to each one in the news as there would be a new update every day.

I normally add a new page every now and then and post the news when I have a bunch.
To be honest, I was so busy that I forgot. I didn't think I had enough to bother.
