Well, today we added a Block converter, as the USB port on the Harbor Fright box was not very good. Lose fitting and as such a point of concern to us. We also added a lighted power switch and a 2 amp buss fuse, why not, I tried to leave room in the case for a little amp / volt meter when I can locate one. Note the Pi is now in a case!
Hello Solar PI Fans!
Now if you register with us you will actually get a password sent to your email address. Only took 11 hrs to work this bug out! Seems you need to load a S.M.T.P. plugin and set that up, so WordPress will actually send the emails when you are running on a stand alone server. Who knew? (Or cared.)

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.
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!
