The news letter went off well.

We found a few dead emails and two or three people have opted out of the news letter.  I completely understand that.  I am just happy that the UN-subscribe function works. I truly don’t want to spam anyone and lets be real, how interesting is a Solar powered Raspberry PI anyway,  right?

Well as it turns out it was a spam attack!

Guys I knew it was to good to be true, we where adding about 1 user an hr. but I noticed that no one was updating their password.  I sent out a few emails to some of the new users and they informed me that there email had been hacked and that they were getting registered to thousands of word press sites.  I thanked them and added a pug in that seems to have this under control now.

On a related note I have added an F.T.P. sever. And a very cool new case for the PI’s. I am also investigating up grading the solar plaint, so that I can run the switch, router & add an external hard drive. And truly be 100% solar powered.  After all if the switch and router are not solar powered can we truly be a solar powered web site?

We also added a “Contact us tab” as requested and we are working on getting a news letter up and running.

Best regards.

Big news Solar PI fans!

Aug 19 2016

 We have added a case for the PI & we have been able to set the O.S. so that the PI Boots from the SD card, (4Gb class 4) and runs off a 16 GB Kingston USB drive!! This should be much more stable and allow us to come up with a much quicker automated backup routine, greatly reducing down time.

Well looks like we are up and running.

It was a hard fought battle but it looks like we have everything running. Now understand 10 days ago I had never heard of word-press so there is going to be a big learning curve.

And we are a little light on content but all this will come in time.

We now have a stable system with a backup.   Heck we even got a case for the Pi computer! That’s right no more Zip lock bag!

We are on our way!

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding!

The sysop.
