Re: Anyone else got the Wuhan?

Spanish Flu originated in Kansas. Correction: first reported in the US in Kansas. Even the Center for Disease and Control states the origin is unknown. Fair enough, first deaths were reported in Kansas and according to a historian I heard talking about it, they think it was a Kansas pig farm. At an...

Re: Cull the wiki?

I FINALLY got around to approving Beserk.

What can I say, most people (there were 70+) who apply for a wiki account really want a forum account, and don't bother to read the big warning I put up saying DON'T REQUEST A WIKI ACCOUNT IF YOU WANT THE FORUM

Re: Anyone else got the Wuhan?

OVZ, no disrespect to your views but through out history killer diseases of many sorts have been referred to by the first known origin, like Spanish flu or Asian flu’s in the 20th century. Then we got the Swine flu and the Bird flu. All the later are still circulating as ‘influenza A’ and still kil...

Re: Request for donations

Folks, if you donated but aren't in the donor group, send me a PM. Sometimes the donations come across through paypal with no email address, or an email address I can't match to any HD username. I do my best to keep up.

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?

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.
