Day 5

First couple of tutorials are done. I've added a heap of screenshots, with really simple instructions.

Hopefully, this will make it really easy for vendors and sellers to get up and running quickly...

This last week has been a real mission. So much accomplished, so much left to do.

If you post something on social media, you are explicitly inviting people to comment and share their opinions. If that is not your intent then set privacy settings accordingly.

Regardless if you post something and are offended by respectful differences of opinion, and go so far as to silence those opinions, then **you** are the problem.

If you expect people to listen to your views on blast without giving them the common decency to reply, and be listened to in return, its time for you to reevaluate yourself because you are likely the perfect example of why the world is falling apart right now.

We’re launching several new security features that make ProtonMail even more secure against attacks. Learn about these technologies and how they keep you safe: protonmail.com/blog/security-u

Day 6

The new night before the big launch. It's been a break neck run to the finish line.

I can only hope it's received well.

I'm certain there will be a ton of issues on the first day, but hopefully I can get them fixed in quick order...

GAH! Auctions are playing havoc with the build. Have to disable for now, until I get some feedback from the developer... Fuck it.

You may think your Gmail account is private, but Google disagrees. Google told a judge that users have "no legitimate expectation of privacy." cnet.com/news/google-filing-sa Proton = privacy.

@Vapingmummajazz and @Haydze - I've activated your accounts manually, so you can login at any time. I'm guessing ya probably missed the activation email. Welcome to the :)

@everyone & @n00bs - If you're trying to signup on vapefam.fun, you should get a notification email. Please check your spam folders, as it I've not yet had the time to setup a proper email service, and the spam rating is pretty high.

Day #3

Today has been a day of ups and downs. Initial choices that I made while configuring the server (chosen for speed benefits), turned out to be the wrong ones. It's set me back about a day, as I had to rebuild the server in its entirety to avoid rebuilding the database manually to repair the damage.

I will have to rethink some of my strategy. The server is running again, but I'm still behind schedule and will need to play catch-up over the coming days.

Ok, rebuilt. Running much better now. May even have a few surprises in the wind...

Big oopsie... Made a major mistake while working... Used the wrong web server, instead of . Screwed up so much shit it's not funny. Quicker to rebuild than repair. Upgraded the server with x86 cores for compatibility, increased RAM to 8GB, and increased storage by 100Gb. Should be much quicker now. YAY!

So much in the . You'd think that the community would have enough to deal with, considering the potential changes coming up soon.

Day #2 - nzvape.bid email notifications

Finally got the notification emails working independent of the main mail server, so should be much more reliable in the future.

Still have to fix ; and to lower the spam score, but it's a big step. It means as long as nzvape.bid is running, it will not need to rely on a mail server, making it almost completely stand alone.

Sooo... 14 hours of ; hair pulling; face palming; keyboard bashing and loud swearing results in...

Something that resembles the digital equivalent of roadkill...
