Not have much time this weekend
by Kane on May 24, 2021

Better weather, more room, a new office chair and slightly less painful tendons
It is amazing how a bit of warm weather helps you actually bother to go and play in the garage. It has been a while. I finally scrapped an old 451 diesel with a failed engine. It let me down about 4 years ago on the way to work and it sat a S2smarts for 4 years before I decided to get it back, find out what the fault was and then strip it for parts.

A parts sale area is being worked of for everyone to use. This will appear with the new site update.

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.

Another 600 photos upscaled

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.

If you have paid but can't log in, refresh the page.

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.
