HD T-Shirts

Folks, I'm willing to take this bull by the horns and get some HD t-shirts made up. Maybe other merch if people want it, but I'll start with t-shirts. I wouldn't mind a HD coffee mug and I know a few of you want HD thongs. Not mentioning any names there Tater. I haven't seen all the threads. Where h...

Facebook lurking

Well I recently joined a group for Moonshining/Home Distilling on FB, just to see what's up, and it's pretty cool to see a lot of folks making UJSSM and other recipes from HD. Not all of the things on there meet the HD safety standards, but I keep my mouth shut. You can lead a horse to water...

Calculators

A while back Husker emailed me a new php file for the calculators. He said it should fix them.

https://homedistiller.org/wiki/calcs.php

I put it there. Could folks please check and see how things are working? If it works, we should link it from the wiki home page, agreed?

I like the idea of HD t-shirts, as long as the admins get one free. 8)

I'll wear one in public. I do think that there shouldn't be any capitalization in homedistiller.org though

Wiki account registration confusion

Many people are registering for the wiki instead of the forum. I need a way to warn them not to register for the wiki if they want the forum instead.

Without making the wiki front page ugly with some blaring warning is the trick here.

Tony did start the site, but it was rewritten by my friend who I believe has passed away, and of course Husker did a ton of work on it. I'm not good with PHP which is why I have such a hard...

Thank you, and this is what makes the wiki so great, being able to modify and improve information to be more accurate. Please keep it up!

Re: Arrest in Delaware USA for sale of hobby scale still

His username was "TedL". He last visited the forums February 5, 2017. Unfortunately he passed away January 20, 2018. The obituary asks for gifts to be sent to attackaddiction.org so I can only presume he struggled during his life. RIP. I'll add him to the Angel's Share group. https://www.legacy.com/...
