  1. Founding Members and other updates

    Well I opened up the system to allow registrations and everyone who signs up before 4/1/11 will get the title of "Founding Member." The entire idea was to load test the system and make sure that the registration process was working.

    Unfortunately switching everyone's account to "Founding Member" is a manual effort. So hopefully people will be patient as I switch them over one by one.

    I have also begun to install a few new features like the Garage feature ...

  2. Beta

    I have turned things on so that people can start registering. This will hopefully highlight any bugs in the system with regards to the registration process.

  5. Starting fresh....

    Think of this post like an intellectual property time capsule. Years from now I'll look back think, "Hey it all started here."

    Well I have spent hours over the past couple of days trying to get the messaging forums and content management system up and running. I am in the process of trying to get the CMS working on the root of the site's URL. Once I manage that I'll be able to start working on content and the new site design.
